From a touch of luxury to characterful heritage, experience one of our truly inspiring holiday properties.


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.

    Very well located and peaceful. Brilliant for our 2 dogs, especially with the enclosed garden space. My 18 month old niece loved the kids play area and the adults loved playing the table tennis and other games in the games room.

    Good facilities, would be improved by separate toilet downstairs. Lack of wardrobe space. Bedroom doors noisy.

    Spent 4 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay with our dog. Very relaxing and a great location for visiting nearby places in Dorset.

    Thoroughly enjoyable weekend. The set up with the courtyard, play area and games room is fantastic and great for the kids - felt very safe and secure and as parents you can relax whilst the kids have fun. The owners were very welcoming and accommodating - lovely to arrive at night and know you can have a cup of tea due to the welcome pack. We had an issue with the microwave which we informed the owners of (more out of courtesy than anything) and when we returned from a day out a brand new microwave had been installed. The owners dogs were also a big hit and very friendly. Would recommend eating at The Bottle pub up the road - a unique experience!
