This was my second time at Cowards Lake Farm House which speaks for itself. As before Irene and Kevin were brilliant hosts. The room is good and comfortable with good views over the hill between the village and sea. The village is a jewel. The breakfasts were superb with a wide choice on the menu. There is a smallish comfortable... More

The traditional accommodation was clean and the breakfast was excellent offering a wide choice including delicious fresh home made bread. The accommodation... More

We very much enjoyed our few days staying at Cowards Lake Farm House. The food was excellent and we particularly enjoyed the homemade bread and marmalade. During our stay our car unfortunately broke down and our hosts could not have been more helpful. We thoroughly recommend this B&B. Laura and Brian. Lee-on-the-Solent, Hampshire

We were looking for two rooms in a B and B somewhere near Bridport the week before a busy weekend, everywhere that we'd stayed before was booked up so we guessed that this B and B was unlikely to be a hidden gem. It was on the main road in Abbotsbury, but the rooms were at the back of the... More
