From the views, location and space, we were very happy with what Whytings had to offer. In total there were 18 of us, including 2 small children. The owners were really friendly, welcoming and also very relaxed. As we stayed on the weekend, we really appreciated that we didn't have to leave the property on the Sunday to a little later and did not have a strict check out process. LOCATION: Situated in the most beautiful surroundings withe lovely fields and views. What is great is that its a 5 minute drive to a large Tesco, which came in very handy over the course of the weekend. Lyme Regis main town is about a 10 minute drive, which again is a lovely day out. . We also travelled about 1 hour to Durdle Door and this was a perfect day out (highly recommend). Of course, it is NECESSARY that take cars as nothing is really in walking distance FACILITIES & SPACE: The property had a lot of space and it was great for us as there were en suites to every room bar the one down stairs. The tables were also perfect and fitted all 18 of us around, so this was great for meals. However, our only negative is that although the property sleeps 20 people, the kitchen area really isn't big enough for that many people. The ovens are also not that great, so I think this would be our only thing that would need improving. CLEANLINESS: It was perfect for us as we had young children. Clean bedding and towels were provided, which was great. They could do with some new seating as they look a little old. Apart from that we loved it. Overall, I would HIGHLY recommend for family stays - we had so much fun and would love to return.

About the location

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.
