The location and setting exceeded our expectations - a very tranquil and beautiful location but still very convenient for travelling into Lyme Regis and its surrounds. Lyme Regis itself is a gem of a place - very unspoilt and non-commercialised but very English. We also did the 2.5 hour walk from the cottage to Lyme Regis along the coastal path - yRead moreou dont see much of the sea but its well worth it. We walked down to the sea front - lovely find. Watch out for ticks on your dogs though ! Hide

The perfect dog friendly holiday cottage destination. The Estate is a phenomenal location. We're coming back next month.

Cottage was in a beautiful location. Very private and quiet. Facilities in the cottage were fine. Nice walks around the grounds although a lot was off limits. Pubs within 10 minute drive although website says 1 mile!

We really enjoyed our stay at Jurassic Cottage; the estate is beautiful, our only regret that we didnt have more time to explore. Getting there was straightforward and instructions re getting in very simple. The cottage was well appointed, clean and very cosy in spite of bring spacious. We would definitely recommend this cottage.

Jurassic Cottage is a lovely property in a great location. It was clean, tidy and well suited to our needs. Our 15 month old son slept peacefully and when awake, had plenty of room to run around in the spacious lounge. My family had a great time - and would definitely consider again should we be visiting that area again.

Lovely cottage. The walk to the secret beach is great.

Just had a wonderful week in Stable Courtyard - very comfortable accommodation, well-equipped, in a perfect location for exploring the coastline of East Devon and West Dorset. Lyme Regis - a gem of a town - is only 10 minutes away, and the coastal path is brilliant for walking - even if Devon/Dorset miles are longer than standard miles!

Lovely three bedroom property in the grounds of Rousdon estate. Picturesque seaside villages to see. A great base for visiting beautiful East Devon and West Dorset.
