  • "Very nice property."

    Comfortable lounge and kitchen area. Good bathrooms both down and upstairs and comfortable beds. A very well modernised cottage with pretty good heating. And a good off the road parking facility very nearby. I would definitely recommend Nutwood Cottage.

    Thank you so much for your positive comments. They are much appreciated. Property Owner

  • "Nutwood was a lovely house ."

    It was tastefully furnished with a well stocked Kitchen. The welcome bag was much appreciated. We especially liked the Dorset Tea. Lovely garden which we’d loved to have used more but the rain was relentless at times. Only Three Negative points . No bathroom or toilet on the third floor. Parking wasn’t easy . I tight squeeze to get into parking space . Could have one with 2 spaces. As not always space available on the road. And it would have been preferable to recycle house rubbish.

    We are very pleased you enjoyed your stay in our cottage . Unfortunately due to the age of the cottage it has not been possible to put an ensuite on the top floor. We purchased the parking space some years ago to make it easier for guests as parking spaces on the road are often not available. It was the only space available at the time and none have been available since. The rubbish is collected in one container as this is in line with the local council policy as we are register as a business . It is sorted by the council at their depot and recyclable items extracted. Thank you so much for your feedback . We hope you return to Nutwood . Property Owner

  • "This is a lovely cottage and in a perfect location to spend a few days exploring the local area."

    We found the cottage immaculately clean and tidy and very well equipped. Pretty garden to relax in and the parking space is a bonus. Given the very high quality of the fixtures and fittings and property overall, our only suggestion is to upgrade the pillows (bit lumpy), towels and bed linen to bring them up to the same standard.

    So pleased you enjoyed the cottage, the garden and the local area. I have checked all the pillows and replaced any that I thought were lumpy. The towels and bed linen are supplied by Lyme Bay Holidays who are aware of your comments. Thank you for staying in Nutwood we hope you will return. Property Owner

  • "We had a super stay at Nutwood."

    House was fabulous and in a brilliant location and we had the happiest few days away. We struggled with car park location on first night as the directions where not very clear and ended up detouring up the hill. and Some warning that this is an unmade car park wouldn’t go amiss, fortunately we were in a big car but had we taken our other car I’m not sure it would have cleared the ground / bump going down into parking otherwise we could not fault. Thank you!! We would love to come back!!

  • "The cottage was clean and largely as advertised but there was an overwhelming damp smell to the property and also the first floor back bedroom was unusable due to the smell."

    We left early as a result.

    I'm sorry to hear that you experienced an issue with a smell in one of the bedrooms. As a local agent we have our own team who are happy to attend to any issues arising during a booking with the intention to resolve in order for guests to enjoy their holiday. I have arranged for our team to attend and investigate your concerns, and if you do stay at one of our properties again, please do contact us if you need our assistance. Property Owner

  • "Really nice property that is spacious and well laid out."

    Very comfortable and perfect for a family holiday. The garden is also very picturesque and the patio is a nice bonus. The iron and board and kettle would benefit from an upgrade which would be the only negative. The large price increase for the same week next year is disappointing but Charmouth and Lyme are excellent places to stay and visit and the property was overall first rate.

  • "We found Nutwood Cottage v relaxing for a week's stay as a party of 6, 4 adults and 2 teenage boys."

    Close to the quieter beaches, great location for fossil hunting! Fantastic educational guided walk from Charmouth Heritage Centre. Pop in the fossil shop a few doors away from Nutwood and meet Chris Moore, a passionate, humble & humourous man who discovered and excavated the ichthyosaur from BBC's Attenbourough and the Sea Dragon. Beautiful views from the cottage patio which provided another outdoor room for a bit of peace and quiet away from the group when needed as the front living room with tv was a very cosy and open plan with the dining and kitchen. It had a v pretty garden. Beds, mattresses were v comfortable, although personally I found my pillows a little lumpy. The ensuite shower room is v small so some may find it a struggle to get in and out. However, there is a spacious family bathroom downstairs. The kitchen was very well equipped for cooking for 6 people. We, a couple, travelled easily by train from W London to Axminster. Then, bus to Charmouth via Lyme Regis . Whilst my sister's family travelled by car due to the allocated 1 parking space. Buses do stop running from Lyme Regis to Charmouth by about 7pm which means evening meals and returning will be by expensive via pre booked taxi. However, the fun and most enjoyable day events for the Life Boat Week more than made up for that.
