A comfortable cottage in a lovely if somewhat remote location. Very steep stairs definitely for the ablebodied.

The perfect hosts, friendly, helpful, a haven and a delight- of course the location is a matter of taste, in a beautiful almost secrete valley, 1 1/2 country miles from Lyme Regis, glorious walk, but we urbanites might think it nearer 2 miles.- ideal for exploring the rest of West Dorset and East Devon.

Lovely base for our break, suited is very well. Very near the sea but far enough away from the crowd. Extremely quiet which was fantastic.

Reviewed by Linda, 12th August 2016

Lovely cottage in beautiful peaceful setting, though could be a little remote for some people and car is essential. Comfortable, clean and well equipped. Ideal for families. Owners, who live next door in main farmhouse, were very friendly and welcoming.
