  • "We had a lovely stay at Barn Close Farm - it was the perfect location for some good Mountain Biking routes."

    The cottage was very well equipped with plenty of cooking utensils and useful cutlery. We made good use of the log burner and it was great to have plentiful logs in the store outside. Only 2 minor comments - it would have been good to have a note in the kitchen re turning on the hot water & heating (we didn’t realise & came back from cycling to cold showers) and also we were a bit overpowered by the room fragrance defusers! Otherwise we enjoyed our stay.

  • "This was a really nice property for 6 adults with excellent indoor facilities and a spacious garden for outdoor eating and relaxing."

    We are blessed with 7 days of glorious weather so made the most of it. The suggestion that we could also use the adjacent field is a bit out of date because it is very overgrown. There are only a few minor points we want to make that would help future visitors. The approach via a steep, single track lane with loose gravel was a bit of a surprise on arrival, particularly when we met a car coming the other way. It was never a problem after that but an advanced warning (after a long drive) would be helpful. It would also help if the name of the property was easily visible on arrival (i.e. facing down the hill). The key safe was easy to find but all the logs piled up beneath it made access tricky (for us older folk!). However, those are minor points and should be read as such. Overall, this is a great property for a week on the glorious Dorset coast. We highly recommend it.

  • "We had a really enjoyable stay at Barn Close Farm."

    It is a lovely house in a picturesque setting, ideal situated being a stone's throw from Lyme Regis and the Jurassic coast. Only a couple of minor points for improvement. The key safe probably needs replacing as we found it challenging to unlock it when we arrived. Also the mattresses in the main bedroom were a little on the soft side and could be replaced with a king size main mattress.

  • "It is a very good property and with just a few relatively small changes I would be able to rate it as r star."

    . A blind is required to protect the eyesight of people using the kitchen sink from intense sunlight. The security key box needs to be more accessible. Presently it can only be opened by climbing on a pile of logs. Also, without a torch it is difficult to set the dials correctly. It would have been very helpful to have a welcome folder in order to bring together the most important items of information. For example, the wifi password needs to be clearer as presently it is on a separate piece of fading paper. The property can be reached by two narrow lanes and advice on which is best for driving down and which is best for up would be useful. The property is set in very nice gardens and is well placed for interesting walks. The kitchen is very well equiped. All lthe rooms are a good size.

Morcombelake is a small village located on the A35 between Lyme Regis and Bridport, in touching distance of Golden Cap - the highest point on the south coast of England - and the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site. Home to the famous 'Dorset Knob' biscuit, the village has a small store with post office and an excellent farm shop, Felicity's.

Nearby you will find the pretty seaside village of Seatown, with its excellent pub and great fossiling beach, which allows access to the walk along the coastal path, which affords spectacular views across the sparkling waters of Lyme Bay towards Portland, Chesil beach and the Dorset coast. A short drive east takes you to the ancient rope-making town of Bridport, and the harbour at West Bay, or venture west to visit the picturesque seaside resorts of Charmoith & Lyme Regis. An excellent holiday base from which to explore this scenic area.
