Guest Reviews


    • “The cottage location was ideal, set in beautiful countryside. We had a relaxing break as it was so peaceful. The property was spotless on arrival, also it was a great location for exploring the area. Would highly recommend this cottage.”

    Mr Rogers, Stone, March 2015

    • “The location of the cottage was so quiet and peaceful, though there were some quite narrow lanes on the last bit of the journey to get to it. The owners were also very friendly and helpful when we arrived. A good base to explore the sights of Dorset and Devon, can thoroughly recommend a visit to Forde Abbey. Also, watching the comical antics of the sheep in the field at the back of the cottage kept us amused for quite a while! Would definitely go back again, but perhaps in the early summer.”

    Mrs Holroyd, Southport, October 2014

    • “We were looking for a peaceful away from it all holiday and this was it. We found rural England in a first class location and in a comfortable property.”

    Mr Pyne, Leicester, October 2014

    • “A quiet and peaceful cottage, ideal to unwind away from the city. 15 minutes drive from more populated tourist locations and beaches, perfect for us.”

    Mr Rowe, Plymouth, August 2014

About the location


Bridport 7 miles; Lyme Regis 10 miles.

A small rural Dorset hamlet situated on the edge of the Marshwood Vale, close to the borders of Somerset and Devon. A designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this is superb walking country, offering an abundance of footpaths criss-crossing the glorious countryside. Wonderful views can be enjoyed from the top of nearby Pilsdon Pen, one of Dorset's highest points. A delightful drive through pretty country lanes takes you to the thriving market town of Bridport, 7 miles away. Bridport is renowned for the making of fishing nets and ropes, and today boasts a good selection of shops and restaurants. Its market was regularly featured on TV’s ‘The River Cottage’. The dramatic Jurassic Coast, now a World Heritage Site, is just a short drive away at West Bay or Lyme Regis.
