Description

Cobb is part of a complex which share access to a fantastic pool, tennis court and games room – there’s something for everyone!

"An ancient landscape of rolling downs, sheltered valleys
and Iron Age forts, immortalised in Hardy’s writings ..."

Enjoying a truly tranquil position in the village of Harcombe Bottom, close to the popular resort of Lyme Regis, Harcombe House offers a variety of accommodation to suit all tastes and requirements (refs DCCQ, DQK, DQL, DQM, DQN, DQP, DQQ, DTM and UKC2477). The house started life as a Victorian gentleman’s residence, and was later used as a boarding house for the local public school. Surrounded by 9-acre grounds, comprising gardens brimming with rhododendrons, well-tended lawns and shady woodland, each property is furnished to a good standard and enjoys shared use of an indoor swimming pool, hard tennis court and games room and well-equipped children’s playroom – making this an attractive choice for families. With sandy beaches, a host of seaside attractions, and beautiful countryside peppered with picture-postcard villages, all on the doorstep, Harcombe House truly is an ideal holiday location for exploring the delights of Dorset.
Just 2 miles away lies Lyme Regis, setting for the TV adaptation of John Fowles’ novelA French Lieutenant’s Woman’. Here, colourful fishing vessels and pleasure craft line the pretty harbour, and a host of outdoor activities, such as fishing, boating, sailing and windsurfing tuition, and golf can be enjoyed. Superb coastal walks can be taken along the World Heritage Coast, with its stretches of fossil beaches to explore, and magnificent views to admire from Golden Cap – the highest point on England’s south coast at 626-ft high.
Nearby, Hardy Country beckons visitors to discover the rolling green pastures and pretty thatched villages made famous in his novels, while for a great family day out, the Georgian seaside town of Weymouth is within easy reach, offering in addition to its harbour and sandy beaches, a host of all-weather attractions, as well as several RSPB sanctuaries. Also well worth a day trip is the county town of Dorchester, 20 miles, alias Hardy’s Casterbridge; offering a bustling market square, and some excellent shops and restaurants. Dorchester is also a great base from which to explore the impressive Maiden Castle rising up from the plains. Exeter is within easy driving distance, its skyline dominated by the distinctive monument of St Peter’s Cathedral. Other important historical buildings in the city include the 14th-century Guildhall, several ancient churches and the restored Quayside with its Custom House dating back to 1681. Another town well worth a visit is Weymouth, with many attractions for all the family, including the Sea Life Adventure Park, which gives the opportunity to get close to sharks and rays
Nearby Sidmouth boasts nearly 500 buildings listed as having special historic or architectural interest, and in August the town hosts what many consider to be the country’s best folk festival at the beginning of August. Folk and roots artists from around the world as well as dance and theatre companies take over various venues in the eight-day event. The fishing village of Beer lies huddled within a small sheltered cove between gleaming white headlands. Much of the village remains unchanged since the time when it was a smugglers’ eyrie. With numerous stately homes and gardens to visit locally, including Abbotsbury Swannery and Tropical Gardens, ancient forts perched upon hilltops affording far-reaching views and a host of seaside towns, including Seaton (with its tramway) stretching along the coastline, there is something for everyone to enjoy in this part of the country. Beach 2 miles. Shops ¾ mile, pub and restaurant 1 mile.

    We would highly recommend this very spacious accommodation for any large group. As a family of 6 adults with 4 children from 3 to 6 years old it was ideal. The swimming pool was a good size and like everything else was clean and well maintained. It was their favourite together with the games room. Cobb is more spacious than even the photos appear to show. The kitchen is large and with the utility room is more than well equipped to cater for everyone. The grounds are great for exploring and Lyme Regis is very close.

    Positives: Cottage was spacious. On site staff were very helpful. Very well equipped kitchen. Excellent facilities- pool, tennis court, games room. Negatives: Beds very hard and uncomfortable. Sofas dusty and uncomfortable. A few cobwebs reduced standard of cleanliness. Amenities all a car ride away, impossible to walk any where with kids due to narrow country lanes. Pub a good mile away.

    Very spacious accommodation,plenty of room for all ten of us. Beautiful gardens with excellent facilities for children. Superb swimming pool. Well equipped kitchen. The only very minor downsides were that the lounge suite though adequate, would benefit from being reupholstered and also a better bbq should be provided. We had a great week at Cobb and would thoroughly recommend staying there.

    We had a fantastic time at Harcombe house-Cobb and will be back. Nine of us stayed at the house and there was plenty of room for us all. The house was extremely well equipped which made cooking a full English for nine easy! We also made use of the swimming pool which was very clean with warm water and played pool in the games room. Will definitely be back!
