We stayed at Rudgefarm July 22-29th 2011, where do i start.....it was idyllic. The cottages are well equipped with everything you need. Lovely and clean, spacious and heating if needed (we didnt). We were in Carter's cottage this was a 3 bed for a family of 6. The views from the farm are spectacular. We were made to feel very welcome, every morning we fed the ducks near the lakes, 2 hens roamed around, sheep in the neaby field and Charlie the cat is so friendly and always ready for a fuss.The 2 lakes are stocked wel with rudd, roach, carp, my husband (on the last day) caught the biggest Grass Carp in the lake, approx 14lb! Places we visited...Poole, Monkey world, Bridport (market on wednesdays/Saturdays) West Bay (best value for fish n Chips). But if you dont want to go out there is plenty to do at Rudgefarm...Tennis (full size court), Football (on the green) tampoline, games room for pool, games barn for table tennis, skittles, table football. Dvd's and toys and books to borrow too! There really is so much to do.
Thank you Rudgefarm we will see you again!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Rudge Farm Cottages is peacefully situated on a gentle south-facing slope, overlooking the beautiful Bride Valley and close to Dorset’s World Heritage coastline. The farm is a haven for peace and tranquility within 20 acres of beautiful countryside of mature woodland, meadows and lakes. The old farm buildings have been thoughtfully converted into ten attractive holiday cottages, maintaining many of the original features, ranged around a flower-decked yard and with spectacular views across the Bride Valley towards the Coast. The cottages are all 4 star tourist board rated and are comfortably furnished with a warm and inviting atmosphere providing the perfect place for families or couples. The cottages vary in size from one to three bedrooms with most accommodation on the ground floor. Around the Farm we have plenty of leisure facilities, a picturesque woodland walk and sporting activities, including an all weather tennis court, for the more active. Alternatively you can enjoy relaxing down by the meadows or perhaps take a gentle row around the lake. The games room and games barn provide plenty of indoor activities if the weather is not so good. These include pool, table tennis, skittle alley and table football. The farm is also ideal for younger children with safe play areas including a sandpit, swings and slides, trampoline and activity pirate ship. Close to Rudge Farm there are plenty of fantastic beaches, including Hive Beach which has the highly recommended (by the Sunday Times) Hive Beach Cafe. There are also great beaches a bit further afield at Lyme Regis and Weymouth. The Dorset Coastline is a World Heritage site and provides some of the most dramatic coastline in the UK with Chesil Beach, Durdle Door and Golden Cap. ... more less
