We chose Kate's place because it was perfectly located for Lyme Regis, Hugh's Canteen and Seaton. We were initially a little concerned as Kate welcomes dogs and I thought the rooms may smell, this wasn't the case and the only aroma was the sweet smell of apple wood smouldering in the inglenook. Because we booked late, our family of five stayed in the smaller family room without the en-suite, but the room was big enough and the journey to the bathroom (which only we could use) was short. The whole house was very clean. At lunch times we came back to Kate's so our youngest could sleep, we then picniced under a tree in the garden, listening to the chucks and watching the swallows. In the evenings the children slept (within earshot) upstairs whilst we drank wine and chatted to fellow guests in a large comfortable lounge. We brought back a takeaway once and Kate provided all the necessary plates etc. She often joined us in the evenings in front of the fire and if you ever get to meet her most charming friend, Ed, don't forget to ask him to tell you his egg story!
