“Brilliant property, lovely people, good location”

Reviewed 29 Jun 2013

Lovely property, really top drawer! The animals out the back were all very friendly and in good condition and the proprietors are very friendly and full of good advice on the local area. The village itself has a nice shop, a huge craft centre and a pub, though I overheard conversations that the pub was closing so might be worth checking this, if it is still open it does lovely, huge portions of food though! Transport routes into and out of the village are single track as are most of the roads in the area it seems! But very picturesque overall. No mobile phone signal, so paying the extra tenner for wifi is well worth it. We visited the coast on many occasions and found it an excellent base to trek from. Our daughter absolutely loved the pigs and sheep, and running up and down the long hallway too. I can't recommend this property highly enough.

Thank you for your kind words,we’re so glad you enjoyed your holiday. Regarding the pub, we are happy to clarify there has been a seamless change of management and it is continuing to operate as before,serving lunches and evening meals.

“Best in the west”

Reviewed 25 May 2013

My wife and I love this place,from its quirky beams,solid no squeek or creak wooden floor to its "interesting"internal doors and hinges.David and Elaine gave us their usual warm welcome(we have been here several times before).As soon as you walk through the door the relaxation begins.In the field were two ewes,when we looked out on sunday morning there stood two ewes and three lambs!We never did find out who put them there.If its peace and quiet you want come here.You want seaside?Bridport is just 8 miles.You want countryside?Just look around you.We hope to be back soon.

“Fabulous”

Reviewed 24 Mar 2013

Simply the best equipped and most comfortable holiday let yet. I was there with my Mother and our 2 dogs and it was fabulous for all of us (including the dogs!) We had packed washing up liquid and loo roll as so often you arrive and there is none. David and Elaine had simply thought of everything and there was nothing that lacked either in the kitchen or elsewhere. The cottage is in a beautiful setting backing onto their field with sheep, pigs and goats. You can hear a pin drop outside and walk the dogs from the front door. A lovely welcome awaits you and a very useful informative folder full of information about the area and the places to visit. We had a fabulous break

“lovely little break away”

Reviewed 14 Mar 2013

we recently stayed in February so the only thing that wasn't great was the weather! lovely cottage feel but modern aswell, we were very impressed with the stables. although there are other properties around we found it very private and the view from the back was amazing and we became very attached to the friendly sheep we fed our bread to and wanted to bring them home. we were given a lovely welcome pack with tea, coffee, milk and cookies (made my day) we would love to go back again

“lovely property in great location”

Reviewed 13 Sep 2012

this is a really lovely property with everything you could need in a great location. The owners are really friendly including their kids who made friends with ours and showed them around and had fun together. Will definately return to this or one of the other properties at this location.

“Wonderfully charming, beautifully decorated with home from home feel. Just perfect”

Reviewed 29 Dec 2011

This has to be one of the loveliest stable conversions I've ever seen. The owners ( hats off to them) have gone all out to make sure that your stay is perfect and on arrival they even provided a welcoming pack which included coffee, tea, hot chocolate, sweets and real Dorset shortbread (perfect after a very long journey). Every little detail in this wonderful converted stable has been finished to the highest of standerds with everything that you would need for that perfect holiday break and has a real home from home feel? The beds have superb Mattresses which are comfortable and aid a good night sleep after the long country walks. The kitchen area (which houses everything you will need, not just the basices) is just charming and decorated beautifully. The big bounce for us was that the owners allowed dogs and also provided an enclosed exercise erea. The animals that they keep are all really friendly which matches the owners personalities and no matter what we asked they always had time for us. See you next year and thank you.

“Excellent”

Reviewed 25 Sep 2011

This is a really lovely self catering accommodation set in a beautiful village. There are friendly sheep right outside the patio door, also 2 pot bellied pigs, pygmy goats and 2 guinea pigs. The owners are very friendly too. Would definitely recommend this accommodation. The location is about 6 miles from Bridport and the coast. Plenty of walks for dog owners.
