Once again, a fabulous stay at this wonderful holiday home. Spotlessly clean and equipped with everything you could possibly need. John and Elaine do a fabulous job and are on hand to help with any issue/local info. What a wonderful family team! Loved the addition of the table tennis!

Super cottage in a quiet location in Dorset. Easily accessible and great for visiting the coastline from Lyme Regis to Weymouth.
The cottage itself is comfortable and well equipped, particularly in the kitchen where there is every kind of utensil, crockery and cutlery that you could require.
The sitting room is very comfortable and bathrooms and bedrooms luxurious.
Great to have some enclosed outdoor space but we didn't really use it much as it was quite overgrown and shady. This spoilt what was otherwise an extremely beautiful view from the windows in the sitting room.
The owner was friendly and helpful, although we didn't have any issues which needed dealing with.

This was a perfect place for us to stay. After receiving a warm welcome we explored the house. Plenty of room for us, a family of 4 adults, and the whole place was spotlessly clean. Well equipped kitchen, lovely en suites to all bedrooms and huge comfy beds. The Bothy is perfectly located for local attractions - Forde Abbey only 6 miles away and beaches at Lyme and West Bay...also plenty of beautiful walks right on your doorstep. Lovely to spend every morning sitting on a bench in the pretty back garden watching the goats. This is the perfect place to stay for a relaxing break.

this holiday let is fantastic - whether for couples, families or groups of friends. it is excellently equipped, beautifully furnished with a lovely homely feel and pretty enclosed garden. ideal for those needing a downstairs bedroom; all the bedrooms having en-suites is a great luxury. it was also spotlessly clean.
