    Property description
    Rental Home – 
    3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4
    The cottage comfortably accommodates up to four people. It has good facilities for families, but is also a cosy retreat for couples. The cottage is situated on a country Estate which was used as the location for the well known BBC television series 'To the Manor Born' and features in one of the episodes. The surroundings are very peaceful, with the only noise being birdsong and the babbling brook which borders the garden. The surrounding area is popular with walkers, riders and cyclists . The village of Winsham, with its pub and excellent village shop, is half a mile away and the World Heritage Coast around Lyme Regis, with its fossils and sea fishing is within easy driving distance.

    East Devon, Dorset and South Somerset are all within easy reach with opportunities for enjo...

I wasn't sure whether to review this cottage.......well you don't want everyone to know something good do you?
You arrive at this wonderfully secluded cottage at the bottom of a valley and are met by stunning view and a magnificent setting. (The drive to and from the cottage is by a single track lane, although you can access from a slightly larger lane round the back that isn't so steep)
The cottage is maintained to a very high standard and very well equipped, especially the kitchen, one of the best I ever found. There is a fantastic wood burner that is very easy to light and gives off masses of heat for the colder evenings and nights.
The garden is large and again very well maintained and attracts wildlife in abundance, from many types of birds to deer and is bordered by a lovely stream. A fantastic conservatory to look out at the views and garden.
On a clear night, star gazing is wonderful especially if you, like me, live in a town.
Ideally situated for great...

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013 for a stay in September 2011

Stayed here a couple of years ago now and had a fantastic time. Cottage is up a roughly mads up lane on its own. Hardly any cars very quiet. We had my mother in law with us so the downstairs bathroom and bedroom was ideal. Have tried to book a return date but everytime theres a free booking we have to work :( but fully intend to return someday. Not sure about internet connection as we didn't take laptop/phone youll have to check when booking. Everthing you could want in the kitchen. more

Management response:

We are delighted that this reviewer still has such happy memories long after their holiday. We continue the process of maintaining and upgrading this property, so if a return trip is on the cards, there will be both new and familiar aspects to enjoy. more
