|Further details outdoors|
Holiday makers are welcome to use disposable BBQs in the garden below the upper levels - the risk to the thatch and the polycarbonate roof of veranda cannot be overstated.
The swimming pool has changing rooms and a covered area. There are sun loungers available. There is no lifeguard on duty for the pool.
The garden has two small ornamental ponds. With the swimming pool, the river and the farm also accessible we strongly recommend that parents supervise their children at all times. The farm is out of bounds to holiday makers unless expressly invited and accompanied by the owner.

The West Country region
West Dorset is an area of outstanding natural beauty. The local towns and villages have a wonderfully individual character and the larger towns have some great shops, pubs, restaurants and tourist attractions. The Jurassic Heritage Coast is easily accessible and has exciting beaches and countryside to explore.
The climate is warm in summer with generally less rainfall than is forecast. Recent winters have been rather wet with occasional cold spells with overnight temperatures down to -4 deg C. We have very little snow near the coast, so make the most of the rare opportunity to enjoy it!
The Swannery at Abbotsbury, the Children's Barn and the Abbotsbury Tropical Gardens are all about 20 minutes away by car. Lyme Regis with its tea rooms, fossil and other tourist shops is well worth the 25 minute drive. 45 minutes away is Weymouth, with glorious sandy beaches, a theatre, trips to the Channel islands and preparations for the 2012 Olympic sailing events.
Bridport has a twice weekly market (Wed and Sat), a monthly farmers' market. The town and surrounding villages are full of excellent pubs and restaurants for eating out. West Bay has a wonderful wet fish shop and several food kiosks selling local food, an indoor swimming pool and an interesting small museum in the Salt House.
There is a leisure centre south of the town with facilities for all the family, which could be useful on the odd inclement day. The Library, Museum and the Tourist Information Centre are located in South Street.
There is a children's riding centre at Elwell, Waytown. There is fishing available at Mangerton Mill. The nearest golf course is just east of West Bay on the cliffs.
Walkers will have an embarassment of choice, from the South West Coast Path and many links to numerous countryside rambles including several long-distance paths - Jubilee Trail, Wessex Ridgeway, Monarch's Way, Liberty Trail, and a little further afield the East Devon Path. It is possible to walk to Bridport along the Brit Way, with a little lane walking.
