English Country Cottages

An inspiring collection of properties chosen for their character, luxury and heritage, all graded 4 star and above.


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.

    A lovely cottage with the feeling of home from home. Very peaceful setting although our neighbours were a little noisy but to be expected with family accommodation. We came for a rest. Our days were spent having leisurely strolls along the nearby beaches and our evenings were spent with a home cooked meal and a game of scrabble. I am sure there was plenty more for us to do had we wanted to take advantage of the amenities within the local surroundings but that wasn't the purpose of this break. The games room was excellent for keeping my 10 year old entertained when we were at the cottage.

    We enjoyed a lovely restful weekend...perfect for February. Our two dogs were as pleased as we were with the cottage. We were all made to feel very welcome and will be visiting again.

    Lovely place & location if you want to get away from it all. Not much in the way of local amenities, but a number of larger villages & small towns within 20-30 minutes drive.

    The cottage was delightful in a beautiful setting, however the only downside is that to get to it from either direction you have to drive down a one track road for about two miles hence getting any where seems to take forever. If you want a relaxing holiday just taking it easy reading and enjoying the surroundings it is perfect, the owners and their two dogs are lovely.

    Our weekend in Dorset was amazing. The Tack Room was perfect, very comfortable, very clean, wonderful surroundings and a very friendly family (dogs and cats) living in the manor house. If we were ever back in the area we would definitely stay here again. We spent our days at Lullworth cove, Lyme Regis, and the Golden Cap. We ate the best fish and chips EVER at Longs in Bridport and brought lots of lovely produce from local farm shops. Overall we had a perfect weekend and couldn't have wished for a better cottage to stay in.

    We were very pleased with the holiday cottage and the beautiful location. Everything was just as we would wish. The surrounding area is very beautiful but the roads in the immediate vicinity are very narrow, occasionally requiring very precise driving/ reversing especially when large farm machinery is on the move. Our dogs loved the venue meeting the residents and their dogs as well as Pete and Dud, the owners retrievers. Did try the Bottle Inn as a local hostelry, but they didn't do any food and for a Camra pub served the worst pint of beer I've had in years. I would not recommend that. The local farm shop on the other hand was delightful, with lots of local produce and a great range of food and drink. We will return, I'm sure.
