    We loved the location, fabulous views and great walks direct from the house. David and Jane were the perfect hosts, relaxed, informative and friendly. The house is well equipped, spacious and comfortable and the games room ( no, barn!) provided entertainment for everyone. Highly recommend this for a family gathering or group of friends.

    We had a fabulous relaxing week in the most peaceful and beautiful surroundings. The cottage was warm and comfortable and really dog friendly. The walk in the paddock up the hill is worth it for the stunning views. Highly recommended!

    We (3 couples) arrived for our long weekend on the 5 October 18. The location near Lyme and Charmouth, and away from the main roads was perfect for the 3 dogs so we could relax during our stay. The Saturday was wet so the games barn was a great added benefit which we used to the full. With one en suite bathroom plus the main bathroom for 3 couples was fine but we may have struggled if we were the 4 couples as intended. The only negative we had was a difficulty to set the temperature for the shower in the main bathroom. Our thanks to the owners for their warm welcome, and the eggs and milk which was a nice touch.

    Spacious cottage but it is tired and needs new beds, sofas and kettle. Also needs a good clean as evidence of cobwebs even under the wash basin in the main bedroom - no door to ensuite, shower and washbasin in bedroom small cupboard housing toilet. Away from it all, had to drive everywhere down very narrow lane only a car width. Friendly owners we only saw on first day as they went on holiday. Outside furniture needs updating.

    The bungalow is excellent for those holidaying with dogs - it is secure and there is plenty of space for them to run around. Dave and Jane were very welcoming.

    A lovely peaceful setting, not far from the beach. Very dog and family friendly. We had hours of fun in the games room. The cottage is Very well equipped our only slight complaints would be that the dish washer did not work well and the TV was quite small, it did have sky though!

    A good venue for large groups. We were 5 adults and 3 children. Plenty of space although with 8 people sitting round the table there was little room to move in the kitchen. We had small niggles with the washing machine and dishwasher and one of the toilets was difficult to flush. This was at the beginning of the holiday and nothing to do with our use of it. However the owners were very friendly and the children loved letting the chickens out and collecting the eggs. There was a superb games barn with a skittles alley which everyone loved and a nice child friendly garden. We were in easy reach of several beaches, some better than others for children and energetic walks! Not far to the nearest supermarket or pubs. All in all we had a very good holiday, young and old alike!

    The hosts are very friendly and very nice. The cottage is very tired and needs some TLC. The dishwasher didn’t work properly. All it needed was a good clean. The setting is wonderful, I am sorry to say that because it could be really good especially for a family with children.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; We were very disappointed to have received such a low score as in the 10 years we have been letting the property we have always been congratulated on the facilities and cleanliness. The cottage was totally refurbished and decorated last year after a flood. All I can say in our defence is that we are geared up for dogs who have scratched the leather sofas and wooden doors in places. We like to make dogs feel very welcome and often have three. If you haven't got dogs and it rains all week (as it did for the 4 ladies who gave us this score) I can understand how the furnishings maybe didn't meet their standards and we apologise for this. We will be upgrading the sofas in the near future and the dish washer does work, it maybe just needed topping up with salt?
