    Apart from problems with water from well over first couple of days, the owners did make sure it was fixed quickly and efficiently, this farmhouse is amazing, very well equipped with nice personal touches. Would recommend for large groups.

The property

About a mile from the pretty Dorset village of Salwayash, on the edge of the beautiful Marshwood Vale, an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is Marles Farmhouse.

This detached, stone-built, fabulous family home is approached along wooded lanes and bordered by rolling green fields.

Peaceful and secluded with no near neighbours, (the owner occasionally uses their converted dairy, also onsite) the property was completely refurbished in 2015 to include modern comforts, which perfectly complement the original 19th cent.

thick stone walls, beams and fireplace, to create a smart, spacious and welcoming home.

A huge, well-equipped kitchen with polished granite surface and a dining area big enough to accommodate everyone is the real heart of the home.

Stretch out in front of a cosy wood burning stove in the sitting room, or for those not so sunny days the family/games room with table football, TV/DVD/Blu-ray, and a WiFi-connected music system/iPod dock will keep everyone occupied.

Alternatively, gather the family around the piano and sing along.

Also on the ground-floor is a twin bedroom and a shower-room making this property suitable for those who are less mobile.

Staircases at either end of the house lead to the first floor and five further bedrooms, all with pretty views over the garden and fields beyond – two king size doubles with en suite shower-rooms, two twins with zip-linkable beds to 6’ doubles and a family room with adult bunks.

There are two further bathrooms on this floor to complete the living accommodation.

Outside, to the front, a wide paved terrace with picnic benches and a barbecue catches the sun all day long, whilst to the rear, the cottage garden looking over sheep-grazed fields, has an enclosed lawn with table/chairs and is a great spot for morning coffee and wildlife-watching.

A children's climbing frame/swing and an open-fronted garage with table tennis are sure to be a great hit with the younger family members.

Scenic and secluded, Marles Farmhouse is perfectly placed for exploring this popular area of Dorset.

The vibrant market town of Bridport and the stunning Dorset coast with good sandy beaches at West Bay and Charmouth are all within 10 miles.

Further afield, you can spend the day hunting for fossils along the Jurassic Coast, take a stroll along the iconic 'Cobb' at Lyme Regis or visit the seaside town of Weymouth, where you'll find a variety of water sports to try.

About the location

SALWAYASH

The attractive market town of Bridport grew up around the River Brit, and was shaped by its extensive history of rope and net making. The long, wide streets and alleyways between the houses were once where the flax strands were twisted into rope, while today those streets are filled with an interesting variety of shops, restaurants and inns. Bridport’s market is regularly featured on the River Cottage TV programme. 2 miles south of Bridport is the dramatic Jurassic coast at West Bay, now a World Heritage Site, home to the backdrop for TV's Harbour Lights and the coastal setting for popular Broadchurch, whilst the picturesque resort of Lyme Regis is within 10 miles. A superb base for exploring wonderful West Dorset.
