This spacious farmhouse is part of a historic former monastic grange that dates back to the 15th century. A painstaking renovation on this Grade II*-listed property was completed in 2022, cleverly blending original character with contemporary comforts. Surrounded by rolling countryside, yet only 2.5 miles from the coast, this family-friendly property is a great choice for those wishing to explore the area or simply to relax in comfortable surroundings. Head to Charmouth, the pretty town of Lyme Regis with its historic cobb harbour and picture-postcard streets, the eclectic town of Bridport where you can hunt out vintage curios, or the village of Symondsbury, at the foot of Colmers Hill, which are all within 5 miles. For keen walkers, enjoy walks direct from the property to either Coneys or Lamberts Castle.

From the shared drive and farmyard, a private entrance door opens into a spacious boot room. Once inside, you are met with a sociable kitchen/diner with a flagstone floor, a beautiful handmade kitchen and space to dine just opposite. A king-size bedroom with an adjacent contemporary shower room leads from one end of the room, or pass the utility room on the right and take a couple of steps down into the lounge. This inviting room has an original fireplace with a wood burner and a Smart TV. In the corner of the lounge is the wooden staircase rising to the first floor, which arrives in the first of three beautiful bedrooms. This spacious room is mezzanine style, open to the stairs and gives access to the two further bedrooms. There are three single beds and bean bags making it the ideal room for children. Please note, due to the setting within the eaves, there are some areas of restricted head height on the first floor along with uneven floors and some steps, which only adds to its character and charm. The bedrooms leading from this room include a triple with a double and a single bed at one end and a further king-size bedroom at the other. Completing the accommodation is the bathroom.

Heading outside via the boot room and across the yard, you will find a gated and large lawned garden with picnic benches and space for ball games. In an adjacent barn is a tennis table, shared with the attached property.

The Cheesehouse is a lovely place for a family holiday. It is placed right in the in the centre of a working farmyard and as you would therefore expect has quite a bit of tractor and livestock activity. There is a separate garden area with benches for picnics and the access to this is through the farmyard, so younger children would need to be escorRead moreted. Our grandchildren enjoyed the walks and nearby beaches, particularly fossil hunting. Lyme Regis is just a short drive makes a nice day out Hide

Kitchen lovely size, wellRead more equipped - could do with updating utensils. We did have some housekeeping issues made owners aware . Enjoyed stay, felt it overpriced . Hide

Very well equipped cottage, the children enjoyed being on the farm although we only had the cows visit the actual farmyard once whilst the vet was doing his examinations. Great out door area for children to play safe and many bbq's to choose from. Plentiful parking. We didn't expect the lanes to be so narrow and long but are now well practiced in rRead moreeversing back to allow others to pass! The visit to see the cows being milked was the highlight of the week, very informative and made to feel welcome Hide

Bit of a late review because life has been so hectic. We had a lovely visit to The Cheese House in May. The location is lovely and the owners were really helpful. We didn't experience much in the way of farm noise so it was very peaceful, this could depend on time of year though. When we stayed the curtains let in a lot of light so the kids were upRead more early and although the mezzanine was a great space the noise from the living room meant the kids slept elsewhere, but we had a lovely holiday thanks.

Cheese House is a beautifully equipped and well laid out cottage. It tastefully reflects the historical character of the building and our family thoroughly enjoyed our short stay, including the dog.
