Lower Pound Farm, Monkton Wylde

Has any-one else been to this delightful hideaway vacation rental? As such I can't put it on TripAdvisor but this is a Detached Stone Farmhouse in the wilds of the countryside. There is ample parking.

Lyme Regis (on the coast) is 4 miles (see my Reviews) and there is a large weekly market at nearby Charmouth (see my Visitor Centre Review)

Dog Permitted No Smoking. Short Breaks are also available all year.

This delightful stone farmhouse has views down the valley all the way to the sea. The extensive sloping gardens include terraced lawns, flower beds, shrubs, orchards and a fruit cage (available for picking) plus a terrace and an arbour with table & chairs – ideal for a sunny out-door breakfast or tea.

The owners live abroad and rent it out when away so it’s managed by an Agency, Dorset Coastal Cottages. 0800 980 4070/01929 460125 dorsetcoastalcottages.com/cottage-details/433 and hols@dorsetcoastalcottages.com

One minor criticism – there is a small step down into the lounge so be careful not to trip. We put a mat down to remind us of the step. Excellent facilities (see my photos.) Shop/Pub 2 miles.

It’s hard to find but the easiest way is to go through the village of Monkton Wylde (on the Marshwood Rd), then past a long open field on the right and then, as the road curves to the right there is a turning off to the right (signposted). Twisty narrow lane with the farm down on the left-hand side. It’s easy to overshoot it though! If you reach the church on the right then you have gone too far!

The cross-roads to Lyme Regis and back is a real swine. The L/A had a chance to have some land for a roundabout but chose not to take it. The locals tend to go back up towards the village and turn left just before they reach it. This brings you higher up onto the main Honiton/Bridport road where you can cross it one half at a time. Safer that way! It could even be better coming back from Lyme via the Charmouth road but we didn’t try that way.

Location is @ 50°46’27.60”N 2°56’10.68” W (See GoogleEarth)

Thoroughly recommended. We shall go there again.

Great you had a nice experience in this beautiful part of the world.

Tripadvisor can be tricky when it comes to leaving feedback on self catering cottages not already listed (what they do when they receive these is try to pressure the owner of such properties to take out a paid for listing - without it the/your feedback won't go online!).

A good alternative therefore is www.mycottageholiday.co.uk which is solely focused on self catering in UK and Ireland and does not put up any barriers to leaving feedback!

We stayed twice at this house, would like to again but it's seems booked up when we want to. We found the house perfect on both occasions we didn't want to leave.

We stayed in 2010, but have found prices have increased by quite a bit.
