    “Big but.....needs TLC & a good clean”
    We were a party of 12 and we stayed for a week in August. Our reception was warm and included fresh eggs from the farm chickens. The linen and towels are of good quality and there is plenty of hot water for showers. The ground floor is dedicated to two large matching tables that seat 14 and a lot of leather settees. Great for a communal night in! The property is great for Lyme Regis and a stones throw from River Cottage (book well ahead if you want to go there). However you do need a car no ...
    We were a party of 12 and we stayed for a week in August. Our reception was warm and included fresh eggs from the farm chickens. The linen and towels are of good quality and there is plenty of hot water for showers. The ground floor is dedicated to two large matching tables that seat 14 and a lot of leather settees. Great for a communal night in! The property is great for Lyme Regis and a stones throw from River Cottage (book well ahead if you want to go there). However you do need a car no matter what anyone says as it is just too far and hilly to walk to pubs and shops. The downside is there was no wifi, and it really needs a good clean from top to toe. The upstairs windows were very dirty, some hot water taps did not work (which we reported) and 50% of the showers had no wall fittings so you had to hold the shower yourself. There are no smoke alarms in the kitchen area and the ovens need a really good clean. The front door handle doesn't work. We had a toddler so had to move settees to retrieve things that he threw under them and it was clear from the things we found that they had not been moved in a long time. However overall we enjoyed our stay. It's hard to find properties with lots of ensuite rooms that are pet friendly. With some investment and TLC this could be a super place to stay.

About the location

UPLYME

Lyme Regis 3 miles.

The beautiful countryside surrounding the village of Uplyme, on the borders of Devon and Dorset, is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, criss-crossed by bridleways and footpaths including the East Devon Way, and providing perfect country walks and superb views. The area was chosen by TV chef Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall for his River Cottage HQ at Park Farm, where you can treat yourself to a great meal. Just a short drive takes you to the stunning Jurassic Coast at Lyme Regis. This delightful historic seaside town boasts a maze of narrow streets, with an interesting array of shops and cafes, whilst the sandy beach lends itself to great bathing and watersports, and the bustling little harbour offers regular fishing trips, or try your hand at fossil hunting. Within an easy drive is the quaint town of Axminster, or how about a ride on the Seaton Tramway? A glorious location for a varied and interesting holiday.
