If you want to drop off the grid for a few days this is the place for you. We loved it and would go back again.

A very comfy lovely place to stay. The kitchen was well equipped and Sara was really friendly, making us a cuppa when we arrived and leaving fresh biscuits on the table. There are some nice little walks straight from the cottage and others within 30min drive. Nice pub a couple of min walk away too.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Pound Retreat. Great village location, quality accommodation and lovely, friendly owners who were very welcoming. First holiday away with the dog, couldn't have made a better choice. Would definitely book again.

Pound Retreat was a brilliant find for a quiet Christmas break for myself and my 3 dogs - it is one of only 2 holiday let properties in the village. Plenty of local dog walks (booklets on local footpaths and longer routes provided) and beaches at Lyme Regis and Charmouth were easily accessible. We hope to return when daylight hours are longer for mRead moreore exploration and to try the village pub which was not serving food during our visit owing to a recent change of ownership. Hide

Great place. Good location at Chardstock enabled us to travel up and down the coast from West Bay in the east to Budleigh Salterton in the west. Great for Coast Path walking. Highly recommend Down House Farm cafe near West Bay AND also a trip to Budleigh Salterton. Definitely need an Ordnance Survey map for circular walks.

Lovely cottage in lovely location with lovely owners next door. The cream tea was very welcome as were the flowers. We used the cottage as a base to explore Dorset and Devon.

Lovely property set in a beautiful little village with a lovely pub, landlord made us very welcome. On arrival we were greeted by the owners who made us a very welcome cup of tea, then on entering the property there was a plate of homemade scones with jam and cream plus a vase of fresh flowers, a lovely touch.
