Lovely characterful cottage, with all the facilities you’d need, in a great location.
We had a fantastic week. The cottage is in a beautiful, idyllic spot, yet brilliantly situated for exploring all the local highlights - so many amazing beaches within 30 mins drive. We did the walk to the pub in Stoke Abbot on the first and last evening and everyone there was super-friendly. Don’t forget a torch for the return leg!
The cottage itself was the perfect size for the 4 of us and every room was well-laid out and suited our requirements. Lots of lovely photos on the wall, too. My son wanted to take the hedgehog print in his room home! Thank you for a lovely stay.
Lovely stay :-)
Beautiful and well equipped converted barn. The master bedroom is huge and features a beautiful roll top bath. 4 busy mummies had a lovely, relaxing weekend here. The surrounding countryside is gorgeous and we highly recommend the walk to the New Inn pub for lunch (and a play on the zip wire in the garden!). The owners were lovely and so helpful. We had a supermarket delivery before arrival and Tim kindly put all the shopping away for us. The wood burner was a nice bonus and made for cozy nights in. There was also a good selection of DVD's to watch. We really enjoyed our stay and would to come back one day.
A wonderful cosy break!
This is an amazing property. Done to a high standard throughout. Cosy and rustic and has everything you need for a ‘home from home’ experience. The location is great and we found lots to do ( coastal walks...nice pubs etc) but also enjoyed relaxing and enjoying chilled time at the property. The hosts were great. Charlotte gave us all the info we needed before arrival and they also supply a great folder with everything you want to know/where to go etc. On our arrival there were no logs/kindling for the stove but Charlotte was quick to bring us supplies.
Why only 4 stars. When we arrived it ‘felt’ like the cleaner (new apparantly) seemed to not do as detailed a clean downstairs as im sure the owners were expecting. This property is pet friendly ( so not expecting perfection) but it was very evident on the ground floor ( no pets allowed upstairs) that a furry friend had been in recently. We didnt bother the hosts as we had been on a long journey with a 1yr old so just got the hoover out again. This is probably a tiny blip so dont be put off. Given the chance we would return. Cheers.
Simply - uncomplicated relaxation!
What a cosy cottage! From the fire lit ready for our arrival, to the enormous super king sized bed and roll top bath (both in the main bedroom).
A last minute booking the day before we arrived and still the cottage was spotless, warm and welcoming. Towels on the radiators and fresh eggs (laid by resident hens) in a basket on the work top.
Uncomplicated, rustic but very comfortable for a family holiday or a weekend break.
Tim was there to welcome us and quick to point out that if there was anything we needed, to knock on the main house door, (there wasn't).
Beautiful walks right from the door out into the wonderful rolling countryside. Our Dog Alfie was particularly impressed with a 100 mile an hour run (him not us) over to Beaminster and back where we stopped for coffee and cake and he was given water and a chopped up sausage (just because) - thank you to the lovely people in the Steak House.
Windy walks along Chesil beach gave eye level views of massive waves after storm Diana.
All in all really relaxing weekend break which felt less like two nights and more like a week, we were so chilled.
Thanks to Tim, Charlotte and the hens.
Fabulous holiday home, beautiful place and such friendly hosts.
Despite a bereavement and my husband missing half the week we had a wonderful time here. The house was lovely, very comfortable and well equipped. Cosy log fire and very good beds. Our hosts were so generous, keeping us well supplied with fresh eggs from the hens and ducks and wonderful local bread. Charlotte gave us an unforgettable experience with the aerial silks and lent us boots when ours were wet. Beautiful walks straight from the door with great views and hedgerows full of delicious blackberries. Walking along the road was not so safe. Surrounding area terrific, with memorable walks along the coast. Many places of interest to visit. Very highly recommended!
A lovely holiday destination.
The cottage was very nice with everything we could have needed. The weather was so good that we spent most of our time visiting local places of interest and finding lovely places to eat which meant we actually did not need to use many of the facilities. However, a real treat was to come back each day to be greeted by a gorgeous dog, a friendly goose and five ducks. Bliss!
We would definitely go back. What a really beautiful part of the country.

Coast / Beach:
West Bay (aka Broadchurch) er ca 17 minutter unna. Lyme Regis ca 30-35 med mange flotte strender i mellom.
Den vakre lokale landsbyen Beaminster er ca 4 minutters kjøring. Co-Op 7am - 23:00, flott restaurant Brassica, god baker, utmerket slakter, hardware, deli, konditori og flere gavebutikker. Byen er rett under der de filmet langt fra det travle Crowd, så ligger i enestående natur.
Beaminster er en landlig idyll. Landsbyen har sin egen grønnsaksbutikk, slakter, apotek, puber, prisbelønt restaurant, konditori, delikatesse og håndverksbutikker. Det er fredelig og veldig vennlig med lokale arrangementer / fetes, antikke markeder og Broadwindsor har et håndverksenter (med et fabelaktig lite bakeri), pen kirke, pub og årlige arrangementer. Havet ligger bare en kort kjøretur unna, og er hjem til 'Broadchurch' BBC-serien. Det kan skryte av fantastisk natur og sjø mat!
Komme seg rundt
Busser kjører regelmessig (ish) fra Beaminster og Broadwindsor og drosjer er tilgjengelige, men må bestilles på forhånd. Å komme seg rundt i området gjør du virkelig en bil.
