  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay thank you."

    The cottage is lovely and the Rousdon estate grounds stunning in a great location close to beautiful Lyme Regis. Access to the private, usually deserted beach along a wonderful forest track was a real highlight. We appreciated the welcome pack and tried to return the favour by buying a new corkscrew which was missing on our arrival but we inadvertently took that one home with us (as a previous occupant must have done) sorry! We really hope to be back, thanks again.

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Yard Cottage."

    Wonderful location, quiet and scenic. Good for countryside walks. Accommodation comfortable with good facilities. The only minor criticism is the lack of a stand up full shower in the downstairs en-suite.

  • "We had a great time."

    Cottage is cozy and estate is really lovely. Easy access to all of the main attractions and you can access the south coast path from the estate which was really convenient. Some minor negative points: Mattresses were really uncomfortable, smoke detector is too close to shower room so sets off with the steam and bathroom extractor in the kitchen is not fit for purpose to extract smoke/smells. Kitchen extractor with variable setting should be fitted instead. Apart from this we had a fab time :)

The property

Boasting a superb location on the historic Rousdon Estate close to Lyme Regis in Dorset, this Grade II listed cottage has been sympathetically restored to offer attractive accommodation perfect for families on holiday in the area.

The open-plan sitting room welcomes its guests and is a beautiful introduction to the property.

The room is attractive and rustic with traditional features at every turn including wood flooring, an original fireplace and feature picture windows and is the ideal spot for curling up, getting cosy and relaxing into your holiday.

The dining area is set out ready for visitors to enjoy delicious food prepared in the small but perfectly formed kitchen where you will find everything you need to create fabulous holiday cuisine for the whole family.

When bedtime calls, there is a fabulous ground-floor master bedroom with feature windows, wood flooring and traditional fireplace and a magnificent wooden staircase leads the way upstairs where there are two well-presented bedrooms, a double and a twin which both have gorgeous skylights giving a glimpse of trees and skies above and creating an idyllic sanctuary.

When the sun is shining in Dorset there is nowhere nicer to be so why not spend some time alfresco in the enclosed courtyard area and soak up the rays?

This is just perfect for an early morning coffee, a light lunch or a long, lingering evening meal.

The tranquil setting of Yard Cottage is what sets it apart, languishing in some 350 acres of grounds of Rousdon Estate with gardens, woodlands and footpaths aplenty to explore.

You can easily while away a day here wandering and discovering!

There is even a (very steep!) footpath leading to a private beach.

A short but scenic drive away is Lyme Regis; a beautiful town with narrow streets filled with gorgeous shops and boutiques, and just outside the town there is Lyme Regis Marine Aquarium and Lyme Regis Museum, which both offer a fascinating insight into the history and the marine life of the area.

Tunnel Tree Tops high ropes and zip wire near Charmouth are well worth a visit with days out to Axe Valley Wildlife Park, Pecorama, Seaton Tramway and Beer Heights Light Railway all within easy reach.

Yard Cottage is set in a rural idyll and offers families the perfect home from home.
