  • "Beautiful holiday cottage with an amazing garden to enjoy."

    The photos don’t do it justice. Nothing in the village so you just have to remember to get things in advance. Very comfortable with everything you needed. We knew beforehand that some people had commented on how close the owners house was but it really wasn’t a problem for us. If you want a bit of tranquility on your holiday then this will suit you.

  • "The cottage is exactly as described."

    It was spotlessly clean and very comfortable, well equipped and felt like home the moment you walked through the door. Apart from a few light bulbs deciding that it was time to give up, we had no problems. The showers are amazing and beds comfortable. The cottage is in the most glorious spot , we loved going in and out through Little Bredy. Very convenient as a base to see Dorset. We had originally planned to visit before COVID, and we all agreed it was worth the wait. I could happily live there!

  • "Mixed feelings about this property beautiful garden setting lovely anex but not maintained well, the shower is the best we have been in,the anex was very clean, but the light switches are a joke some do nothing some work sometimes some I have no idea what they do."

    The heating packed up 2 days before the end of our holiday and though we had a log burner the bedroom and bathroom were freezing. The owner never even sent us an email apology for this.It was still not working when we left.His gardener did try to help but could do nothing. From other feedback this heating problem is not rare.

    The annex is very well maintained and it is in excellent condition, as noted in almost all reviews over the last year The heating system did not “pack up”. During this particular visit, once the customer told me that there was a problem with the heating, I immediately called a heating engineer and we discovered a problem with the control system for the heating system that involved the replacement of an electronic component in the main control board. The faulty component had to be ordered. Unfortunately it could not be sourced within 2 days, but it was fitted as soon as it arrived and the heating system is now working perfectly. There is no issue with the light switches that I am aware of. It is true that the annex uses electronic switches rather than traditional physical switches and some customers initially find this unusual by comparison with their own homes. That being said, the annex has been fully electrically tested and all electrical components are fully operational. Nonetheless, I will check the switches personally to conform this is the case. May I suggest that anybody reading this customer feedback looks at the very long list of excellent reviews (100/100) rather than one of the very few that highlights issues which were resolved as soon as it was practically possible to do so.

    It is a charming property and was perfect for our needs. The welcome pack was much appreciated after a very long drive! The property itself is comfortable and the kitchen covered all the essentials. The bathrooms were also clean and luxurious - the children loved the bath tub in particular! The garden is spectacular and worth the price alone. My children (3 & 6) spent hours playing and exploring: The location is beautiful and rural which was exactly what we wanted but be aware that the roads are typical country roads with some tight bends and narrow points. This was an education for my husband who is used to city driving. The property is in easy driving distance from Lyme Regis in one direction and Weymouth in the other. We travelled as far as Corfe Castle and Swanage in around 45 minutes. We highly recommend this lovely cottage and are planning on booking again for next summer.

    The location is, it is very easy to travel the area from the property. Two down points I wish to share though, the weather did turn very cold during our stay, and the underfloor heating did not provide a comfortable temperature, but there is a log burner which was a lifesaver. The second point was that the internet dropped off about 36 hours before the end of our stay, and did not reconnect before we left. But overall we enjoyed our stay, and would definitely recommend to others, and consider this property if visiting the area again.

    Very overlooked from the main house and window blind in toilet and bathroom needed to be closed most of the time. Toggle switches were a nightmare and one of the velux windows didn't work. Shortage of glasses and no champagne flutes (a must when on holiday). Lengthy list of do's and don'ts and a 09.00am departure (and we had to strip all beds) was so very early and not being able to leave dishes in the dishwasher was a big ask.

  • "Really enjoyed our holiday in The Annex."

    The property was spacious and comfortable and it was obvious the design was well thought out. The pebble flooring in the generously proportioned en-suite shower reminded us we were near the sea! We were amused by the numerous toggle light switches - got the hang of these by the time we left! The location was great for visiting lots of interesting places - The Water Gardens near Dorchester were amazing with cream tea scones to die for! Abbotsbury Sub-Tropical Gardens, The Swannery and Athlehampton House and Gardens should not be missed. Durdle Door is beautiful if you can manage the steps down to the beach. So many other places to see - we had 2 weeks and so will return to the area hopefully to go to the places we didn't have time to visit. I only have one negative comment - we have used many holiday properties over the year and have always appreciated the welcome - often a homemade cake or some local fare. The welcome at the Annex was just a few teabags in a Tupperware pot - a bit 'underwhelming'. Even a shop bought Dorset Apple Cake would have been nice.

    We visited in April and were blessed with fantastic weather. It is situated at the edge of Long Bredy village, surrounded by fields and in close proximity of beaches. Lots of footpaths nearby if you want to a local walk. And there is a lovely lake in Little Bredy a few miles away. The annexe is decorated to a very high standard, and the 2 spacious walk-in showers were a highlight. It was warm and the lovely log-burner is a bonus if needed. The garden was huge and perfect for our 2 young children to run around in. There is also a patio area and table for eating/ drinking outside. The local area was wonderful, and we were not short of things to do - eg Abbotsbury swannery, Hive beach, Lulworth Cove and Charmouth beach. Would love to stay again!

    As previous reviews have said it is overlooked by the main house but this is not really a problem except in the loo where frosted glass would make it less disconcerting (it is possible to get frosted stick on panels for windows!). Our real problem was that we did not feel very welcome - a somewhat didactic list of instructions (Do Not visit the main house was one) and a small quantity of tea bags as the only 'welcome' offering was underwhelming. That said the location is ideal and we enjoyed our week.

    The house is perfectly located within easy reach of many places of interest and a number of the counties' beautiful beaches. The barn has been sympathetically renovated to an extremely high standard, is well equipped and features all the modern conveniences that allow for a comfortable stay for all the family. The rooms are spacious and clean, beautifully decorated (the gigantic shower off the master bedroom is nothing short of impressive!), and we enjoyed nothing more than settling in front of the log burner after a day out exploring. Long Bredy is a picturesque village, perfect for walkers and those who appreciate an off-the-beaten-track setting. Dorchester and Bridport are both a short drive away, providing the opportunity to stock up on provisions, and there are a number of well established local pubs and eateries also a short distance by car. We stayed for the week over (a wet!) Christmas, and enjoyed memorable days out to Lyme Regis, West Bay and Burton Bradstock. The house was a lovely place to come back to each evening and Middle Farm Annexe proved to be a real home-from-home for our family.

    The house is tastefully appointed , and the garden (which is an acre in size?) was full of flowers, in bloom even in late September. During Covid season, we did not wish to visit anything indoors. There are 3 gardens nearby which are superb: Kingston Lacey, Mapperton and Abbotsbury. We enjoyed the many beaches nearby, and at Hive Beach Cafe, we could eat in a big tent. The food was very fresh, and it was not exactly indoors. We would have followed the Jurassic Coast walk but did not have time. We would have loved to see Durdle Door, but that was a bit too far. There were only two in our party, so we used one of the bedrooms (and one of the bathrooms) only. The lounge is spacious, and would have been fine for a party of four. We had sole use of the big patio, which lead to the rest of the garden. It was peaceful and secluded, and we had a talk with the gardener.
