Description

Sleeping three guests, this beautiful holiday home with garden and shared children’s play area is ideal for a small family.

"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.

Comfortable, open-plan living room incorporating dining area and well-equipped fitted kitchen area. Down steps to separate sitting room with electric woodburner and French doors to enclosed rear garden. First floor: Double bedroom with iron bedstead. Single bedroom. Bathroom with over-bath shower and toilet.

    Fantasic place, a real gem. Accommodation was beautiful and well above expectations. Friendly owners, nothing too much trouble and a very relaxed atmosphere which is exactly what we needed. Our little the girl adored the cottage and the grounds and was so happy with the freedon of playing in the in and outdoor areas as well as with the dogs. Close enough to visit lovely places and far enough out to ditch the grind, we felt location was ideal. We will most definitely be back and would highly recommend to others!

    Had a lovely weeks stay in The Tack Rooms. A very comfortable cottage in a beautiful location. The owners were helpful and friendly and the cottage had all the modern amenities you would expect. One tip for future guests, when leaving the property to head to Charmouth or Lyme Regis don't turn right turn left out of the drive. Turning left does add about 7 miles but if you turn right you are on single track roads for about 15 minutes with only a few passing places! Also, not sure the cottages are suitable for taking young puppies or small dogs as they could easily get out of the garden, especially due to the close proximity of cows & sheep in adjacent fields.

    Excellent accommodation and lovely people. We didn't have the best of weather, but being comfortable and cozy more than made up for it. Location is beautiful and very idyllic.

    A really lovely find. The cottage was cosy and warm and the surrounding area was beautiful. It was particularly good as my 5 year old had somewhere to play that was safe and very near the cottage. He loved the freedom and mum and dad got to enjoy a cup of tea in peace. Lovely place and if possible - we will return.

    Beautiful cottage, fantastic location to take a break, hosts are lovely and very helpful. The dog loved it. Close to the coast for stunning walks. We will be back in the summer. Wifi was not great but actually that was probably a good thing to keep any work temptations away. Perfect get away.

    We just needed a small comfortable holiday cottage for a short break. This was just right for us with our 2 dogs. Yes it was in the middle of nowhere but that was what we were looking for. There was a nice size garden for our dogs to run in when we were in doors, with nice walks in near by woods.
