Fantastic cottage in a peaceful location which is ideal for exploring Somerset and the Devon & Dorset coast. My 4 year old loved playing in the garden and chasing Bella the resident chicken around the yard. I would highly recommend this for families or couples seeking a quiet spot in the countryside.

The property is excellent but a little isolated. Walking along the narrow roads is dangerous.

A lovely cottage in a quiet location with lovely countryside views. The cottage is very comfortable with everything you need . Have stayed in many cottages throughout the country and this is by far one of the best we have stayed in. Ideal location for coastal towns as well as lovely walks nearby.

Reviewed by David, 25th April 2018

We loved the quiet location. Wild life besides the cottage was good and we liked to watch the sheep in the field at the rear of the cottage, with their lambs. Everything in the cottage was as we like it. Made it so relaxing.

Beautiful barn with beautiful views onto the surrounding countryside. Excellent facilities and felt very much at home. Enjoyed having a daily visit from Isobel, the hen, but a special highlight was watching the birth of baby lambs and seeing them take their first steps. Would definitely consider another stay here.

Stayed for half-term in Oct 17 and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Really happy with the accommodation which is finished to a high standard and was immaculately clean. Lovely setting and very quiet, but also only a short 20 minute (and picturesque) drive to Charmouth and Lyme Regis. Loved Hive beach which was 40 mins away. Didnt meet owners but welcomRead moree pack of cake, crisps and wine was a nice touch. Would definitely return - family of four. Hide

Have been twice in the last three years. First time in the White Barn and second time we had both barns. Both stays were equally good. Great peaceful location, excellent amenities and very helpful owners. Not too far from the Jurassic coast and lovely beaches. 10/10!
