"We enjoyed our stay in your lovely cottage." April 2019
'Wonderful place. I didn't stay but booked the cottage for members of my bridal party. It was a perfect, cosy, secluded spot with shows off the charms of the area. A lovely place to have as a base or to snuggle up on the sofa in front of the fire with a book!' 2019
We had a lovely week in your beautiful cottage. We love the lounge and the large master bedroom! We were perfectly situated to visit family in Chard and the beach at Lyme Regis. 2018
Very beautiful cottage! Cosy and very well equipped. We would absolutely recommend it to others. 2018
Everything was great, very clean and in excellent condition. Great location of the holiday home with good connections to Axminster, Lyme Regis and Seatown. Also, one is uncomplicated and fast on the highway and Expressway. 2018
We have enjoyed staying in your elegantly furnished, well equipped and comfortable home. We enjoyed visits to Lyme Regis and Charmouth for fossil hunting, Dorchester and the museum, Bridport, Burton Bradstock, Abbotsbury and last but not least, the tram ride from Seaton to Colyton. We had a delicious Easter day lunch at River Cottage. 2018
Excellent rental. We stayed there in the very wet Easter of 2018. Family of four, two kids ages 8 and 4 and two Grandparents. Ample space for 6. The cottage was warm and cosy and incredibly well equipped, including board games and tablets for dishwasher. Great base to explore the Jurassic Coast, good links to Exeter and Devon. Would return and would highly recommend cottage for all ages but remembering one bedroom has bunk beds. Jacuzzi bath a bonus. Thank you. 2018
