“Beautiful cottage, peaceful surroundings, wonderful stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2012

Thank you Simon & Linda, for a lovely and welcome and making us feel so at home. We stayed in Room 1 which was beautiful, and had a nice, modern bathroom. The cottage has been renovated and combines old and quirky with modern and comfortable - very tastefully done.
Breakfast was delicious, and a good variety to choose from.
Location - lovely village, peaceful surroundings, and if you're lucky enough to sit in the garden you feel as though you're a million miles away from hustle and bustle of life. Approx 6-7 miles away from Lyme Regis, only 10-15 minute drive. The Old Inn in the village has lovely food and atmosphere and, although it's right on the main road, when you're inside you would never know it. And the bonus is it's only a very short amble from the B&B, so if you want a drink or two, it's not far to stumble home!

Simply put - superb place with exceptional rooms and fine breakfast. Cottage is charming as are hosts who are very attentive and helpful. Relaxing and near many interesting places. A must.

This was our second visit to the resturant, we rarely go to a any place twice on account that the first visit is normally poor.
Not much to say, except that all of the food we had was without exception, excellant. All around us were moans of contentment.
We were the first to arrive at 6pm, but this quickly changed to full.

If you don't mind paying for quality....give it a try.

We stayed at Ways Cottage for 3 nights in June and must say it is a gorgeous cottage and a lovely place to stay. On arrival we had a very warm welcome from Linda and Simon and were offered tea in the garden which was lovely as the sun was out! Our room was cottage 1 at the front of the house and had a gorgeous bathroom which had obviously just been renovated (lovely overhead shower I must say) - our hosts couldnt do enough for you including suggestions of things to do should it rain! The breakfast was delicious and we ate every morning which is unusual for us but it was too nice to miss - lovely place overall and we will definately go back. (Only 10 mins from River Cottage HQ as well so perfect if attending their events)

We stayed at this lovely cottage last May and were so impressed that we decided to visit again this year in April. Last year we had the ground floor room but this time we had the room upstairs, same size just no access to the garden. We didn't find this an issue as Linda and Simon make it clear that the garden is for everyone's use at any time. They are a lovely couple and made us feel so welcome that I am sure we will be staying with them again!

We stumbled across this place via an Internet search, took a gamble and struck gold.

Gorgeous location (though we personally felt you needed a car to truly enjoy the surroundings), stunning looking property, modern & tasteful rooms and a cooked breakfast to die for.

Simon and Linda understand exactly how to be the perfect hosts; there for you if you want advice but happy to quietly get on with things if you want some time out.

My wife was heavily pregnant at the time of the visit and they could not have been more accomodating.

Would we go again? Yes - and next time there will be three of us!

Trust me - you will not be let down.

Stayed a night at Ways Cottage. A beautiful cottage, in a gorgeous corner of the UK.
Our room was stunning, looking out onto a beautiful garden. The cottage is designed and decorated to a very high standard. The owners could not have been more helpful and welcoming.
The surrounding area is rich with lovely places to see and eat.
We had a sumptuous breakfast in the morning, having been given several options.
I would highly recommend Ways Cottage to all.
