Description

The Grain Store is a brilliant family property as it boasts fantastic shared facilities including children’s play area and games room.

"A delightful base for your holiday, set in glorious countryside close to unspoilt beaches."

Marshwood Manor offers excellent accommodation and facilities in a tranquil rural setting, surrounded by Dorset’s loveliest countryside, and only 5 miles from the unspoilt beaches and golden sandstone cliffs of the coastline. The estate’s 10 acres of lawn, garden, pasture and woodland offer plenty of room for adults to stroll and children to play.
The properties have been carefully formed from a fine original range of buildings next to the manor house and may be booked together to accommodate larger groups holidaying together (property refs DEY, DFA, DEX, DUS and DWS). Previously filmed for BBC television, all retain character and charm, whilst offering comfortable holiday accommodation fitted to a high standard throughout. Each has its own garden or courtyard with furniture, and all enjoy shared use of the extensive gardens and grounds. There is a large games barn with pool table and table tennis, and a children’s play area with swings and slide. Approached along a private drive and set well back from the road, the cottages are perfectly positioned for enjoying this delightful corner of Dorset.
There are a variety of beautiful beaches, both sand and pebble, within a five to ten mile radius, including those at Lyme Regis, Charmouth, Seatown, Eype, West Bay and Burton Bradstock. Fossil-rich cliffs define this dramatic stretch of coastline, which encompasses the 2,000-acre National Trust estate of Golden Cap. This is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and superb walking country, both on the rolling chalk hills overlooking fertile inland valleys and on the coastal footpaths offering spectacular clifftop views. It is also an area full of romance and history, with three ancient hill forts and the house and gardens of Forde Abbey all nearby.
A range of attractions is on offer in nearby country towns. Lyme Regis is a pretty seaside resort, its elegant colour-washed buildings and promenade lining a handsome harbour. Motor boats can be hired and there are fishing trips, a sailing school and a windsurfing school. Bridport is a thriving market town, featured on TV’s River Cottage, the Port Bredy of Hardy’s novels, offering a good choice of shops, inns, restaurants, an arts centre and a sports centre with indoor pool. The coastline is excellent for sea fishing and inland waters offer good coarse fishing. Golfers will find courses at Lyme Regis and West Bay and there is also horse riding nearby within 5 miles. Caterers are available locally. The local shop at Marshwood and two charming thatched country pubs are within a short drive. Shops 2 miles.

Large living room with multi-fuel stove. Steps down to well-equipped kitchen with dining area, TV and French doors to enclosed rear garden. First floor: Double bedroom with Victorian style iron bedstead. Twin bedroom. Single bedroom. Bathroom with over-bath shower and toilet.

    We had bad weather which spoilt it somewhat but it is a lovely place in a great location. Shower was a dribble and the walls were thin so neighbours were quite apparent but otherwise fab place

    Simply stunning part of the UK. Probably the best. The only negative about the cottage was the internet speed but that's due to BT. Lyme Regis is lovely and the surrounding villages magical.

    A wonderful time spent with family at The Grain Store. The cottage had everything we needed. Beautiful scenery and quiet location. The games room was a real bonus and we spent some fun time in there. Only a couple of minor details.... The shower was really only a trickle and the kitchen lacked cleaning equipment such as a disinfectant spray and a couple of tablets for the washing machine would of been helpful. We will be aware for our next stay but certainly wouldn't stop a minor thing from us returning to this beautiful place .

    Beautiful cottage, lovely and clean, well equipped, though a little lacking in wardrobe space but it didn't bother us as we managed fine. Neat little garden with beautiful outlook over fields and woods.

    We had a fantastic time. The kids loved the play area and the woods behind. The dog was welcome and the cottage was lovely. Easy drive to local beaches and the countryside is stunning. A very relaxing family holiday.

    Lovely peaceful spot. Our teenagers enjoyed playing table tennis and croquet. The WiFi is poor but this meant we got to speak to our children more!
