  • "Location great, Cottage secluded."

    Facilities great. However there was a persistent smell in the 2nd bedroom where there are 2 single beds. It was a strong sweet sickly odour which on opening the windows all day long, did not remove. Consequently could not sleep or use said room.

    We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your holiday at the cottage. Our Housekeeping Team visited the property but could not locate any odour within the property. The Lyme Bay Team Property Owner

  • "Not enough info in listing."

    It would have been helpful to know that there was an iron and board, freezer, hairdryer. Incomplete renovation in en suite made it look scruffy. Outside furniture would have benefited from a parasol (there was a base!) Otherwise property was v good

    Thank you for your comments. We have updated our website features to include the iron and hairdryer; it did already state there was a fridge/freezer. The Lyme Bay Team Property Owner

  • "Very nice property well equipped with quality fittings."

    Most welcome goody bag on arrival. Plenty of space and a pleasant garden area for good weather.

    We're so pleased that you enjoyed the cottage and garden. The owners maintain it to a good standard, always with a view of providing the best possible holiday experience. The Lyme Bay Team Property Owner

  • "Our first stay in damson tree."

    Very comfortable and warm. Really needs a storage cupboard for food delivery and the doors need adjustment so they close. The rattling vent in the ensuite woke the dog one night... it might have been the resident squirrel playing though. We would love to come back. The neighbours are nice too.

  • "We had a lovely few days at Damson Tree Cottage."

    It is well located to explore the Dorset coast and we particularly enjoyed the NT walks just up the road. The cottage is refurbished to a high standard and very comfortable. If we had two very minor suggestions it would be some bigger mugs the ones provided don't even hold the amount of coffee the machine makes if you want to add milk and please put some salt in the salt pot. Otherwise everything was there for a relaxing break. It was warm and peaceful and very relaxing.

  • "It was a lovely cottage, very comfortable and well equipped, with everything you need."

    The parking was a bit problematic, although I hardly used my car whilst I was there, so I did take advantage of being able to park on the drive of Stonebarrow House. It was lovely to be able to walk to the beach and I thoroughly enjoyed my stay.

  • "We had a really lovely stay and the welcome pack was a nice touch."

    The instructions for the wood burner enabled us to learn a new skill. Having an enclosed garden with front and rear access to the drive was very useful when going to and from the car. The location of the cottage was ideal with a short drive to Charmouth, Lyme Regis and Bridport. All in all we had an enjoyable few days just few things for improvement in our opinion to make it better. The ensuite door was very stiff and the handle extremely loose meaning that we could not close the door without feeling as though the handle would come off in our hand leaving us trapped in the bathroom. The vent on the outside of this bathroom was extremely noisy, flapping in the wind which then echoed in the bedroom as the door could not be closed. The double bed was also really noisy and not very comfortable.

    Thank you for your feedback, we’re glad you enjoyed your stay. The door handle to the en-suite has now been fixed and we are now planning to change the double bed over the winter. Property Owner

    The only problem I had was I had a disabled vehicle and this was very tight so I had to park down the bottom and next door neighbour took my space in order to park very lovely house loved it the only problem indoors was the rug was very slippery and my daughter hurt herself as slippy definitely come again if I had a smaller car

  • "This is a lovely cottage."

    If we had a problem it was due to getting in and out of the parking space because of the slope, the turning angles and the rough stone ground. If this area could be of tarmac like the rest of the road in front of the cottage it would help considerably. Walking to the beach and the shops could also be a challenge because of the gradient on the lane, especially coming back, but we are being picky here.

    Thank you so much for your feedback. We’re delighted that you thought the cottage was lovely and really appreciate the excellent rating you have given us. Damson Tree Cottage is in an elevated position providing sea views out to the Cobb at Lyme Regis. It’s a downhill walk to the village and the beach (always an advantage!) which means the walk back is uphill, albeit a very pleasant 10-15 minute stroll up a country lane, with often lots of beautiful wildlife to see (rabbits, pheasants and more!). We know that access to the two large parking spaces is narrow and have asked Lyme Bay Holidays to include a picture of it on the website to provide clarity to our guests. Property Owner

  • "Damson Tree Cottage was very enjoyable it had everything we could need to make our stay agreeable."

    The only problem was the parking it’s a cul de sac and an extremely narrow uphill gradient to the parking space at the side of the cottage just enough width for a small car. We have a large SUV and only just managed to park without scratching our car . There are iron reinforcements bars to protect the cottage opposite as building works had been going on for the last few years and we had to take great care to avoid bumping into them. This is not mentioned in the details and because my husband is a very good driver we were ok but anyone elderly or young drivers in a large car might struggle.

    We’re so glad you enjoyed your stay and thank you for your high rating. Damson Tree Cottage is located on the beautiful Stonebarrow Lane which is steep but has the benefit of affording some truly spectacular views at the top. As you might expect, the cottage driveway is also on an incline and it is narrow but it has always been wide enough for our own SUV. We have asked Lyme Bay Holidays to add a photograph of the drive and parking spaces to the cottage details on the website for clarity. We are lucky though to have 2 large parking spaces as well as a beautiful garden. We would like all future guests to be clear that the building works referred to relate to a neighbouring plot, where the house build is complete. No building works traffic has passed through our drive since we have owned the property (January 22) and there is no longer any through traffic at all. Property Owner

  • "Really nice holiday cottage in a great location, to a lovely village & great beach."

    Cottage is clean, comfy & well kitted out and the information pack is probably the best we've seen. Not complaints, just suggestions - other cottages we've stayed in have provided a few teabags & a little bit of milk which is always nice after a long car journey. Also a little breakfast table near the back doors might be nice as this is where it's sunny in the morning. Otherwise perfect.

    Thank you so much for your lovely feedback. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. We will now be offering all of our guests a welcome pack and will look at the space for a breakfast table next time we are there. Best wishes, Anna and Nathan Property Owner
