A lovely cottage with everything you need for home from home. Setting is lovely with views over the countryside. Nice peaceful garden for outside dinning. Garden is also very secure for small children and dogs.

Absolutely beautiful cottage and location. Everything you needed was supplied. Only 100 yards to the local pub and 10 minutes in the car to the nearest supermarket. All very clean. We loved it here and waking up to the sound of sheep. The views are amazing as well. Highly recommend

A really lovely cottage. An open plan sitting room kitchen-diner which works very well. Though centrally heated the wood burner was excellent and provided extra comfort and heat, particularly during the snow we unexpectedly had. Main bedroom en suite a bonus though there is a good family bathroom and another loo. An old building but a very modern cRead moreottage inside. Hide

Cosy location in a quaint little village, conveniently located for seaside, and easy walk to the local pub. Pleasant cottage that is well equipped and spacious enough for three couples at a push. Very poor or non-existent mobile phone signal at times. No wifi at all while we were there but we believe this was a fault of BT rather than the owners.

We enjoyed our stay at the Stable and would certainly return. It was clean and there was plenty of room for six adults plus a toddler and dog. The location was good and the accommodation provided everything we needed for our week's stay.

We enjoyed our stay very much. There was a problem with the central heating which was promptly rectified by friendly hosts. Location perfect and having separate bathrooms for each bedroom was very useful. Level access and parking close to property was essential as my elderly mother has restricted mobility. We enjoyed sitting on the patio in the sunRead moreshine looking at the countryside, listening to the birds and watching butterflies on the blackberry bushes. Very tranquil setting we all slept well.

Lots of space and room for 6 people. Lovely to sit outside on the patio when the sun came out with bbq going. Very peaceful. Good friendly pub 3 mins walk away and within a couple of miles of beaches. Our little dog loved it too.

It was a nice well equipped cottage in peaceful surroundings. Sally was a very helpful and accommodating host. It was nice of her to move the sheep into the adjacent field for the children to see.

See block above! Towels need to be replaced! CheckTV and DVD player work, they didn't for us!! Not a recommendable property unless the linens are improved and the crockery (which is builder standard) replaced!!

Location great, to get away from the maddening crowd. Quiet, except for church bell and cockerel, but that adds to the country farm feel. It's a shame other things let it down. Forced to leave early because of wandering dogs chickens and poo.

Beautiful peaceful location and probably ideal for families with children and dogs. Uncluttered and easy clean with access to see the farm animals.

This was a great property all on one level, it was perfect for myself after knee surgery. it was great to be able to walk and see the animals and wake to the view of the sheep and lambs in the field. We were a very short drive away from Lyme Regis. The owners were lovely and very obliging

Really nice cottage, lovely view across the fields. If you want to be away from the hustle and bustle of modern life this is the place for you.
