“Exactly the treat we'd hoped for!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We stayed at Middlemist in October to celebrate my daughter's 30th birthday and my wife's 50th. It was a special occasion so we decided to pay a bit more for somewhere special. Middlemist was that and more, we had a great weekend, the house is in a fabulous setting (maybe a little further from the sea than we'd anticipated!) with great views, inside it's like home, just cleaner, better appointed and more comfortable and for me that's the ultimate benchmark! On the Sunday we went for lunch at River Cottage HQ, just 3 miles up the road and we really loved it, the food was fabulous.

We looked at hundreds of lets before settling on Middlemist and I'm really glad we did!

Stayed here with a group of 8 friends to celebrate knowing each other for 15 years. The house was amazing, perfect and so well equipped. V comfy beds, loads of space, v warm and a fabulous location. Couldn't recommend it enough and will use it again. Great value for money and all facilities v modern.

“A very special find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

A wonderful property, excellent facilities in a lovely setting.
What was so good about this property is that everything you could possible need is provided. The owners have put a lot of thought into this. The house was very clean & the furnishings done to a high standard that makes a stay away from home a treat rather than a chore!
We were a mixed party of 3 ladies with our 6 children ranging from 16months to 11 years & they all enjoyed the house, gardens & grounds.
Would highly recommend.
Thank you for a wonderful holiday!

“Relaxing cosy weekend with friends”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2013 for a stay in January 2013

Booked Middlemist for a weekend break for me and 7 friends - all ladies, all mums. We loved the spacious accommodation, the well equipped bathrooms, the fantastically well equipped kitchen, the log burner, the comfy beds and the overall feeling of being somewhere very grand but with a lovely feeling of home. Sat on the terrace and enjoyed the views (even in Jan), ventured out to Lyme Regis which was lovely and bustling with people. Generally had a very relaxing time (more so because no mobile signal - however our families could get hold of us via the land-line which even had answer machine - handy)! All amenities close by. Owner (Liz) very helpful beforehand. Would highly recommend - we'll be back!

“Truly beautiful house and wonderful stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2013 for a stay in December 2012

A group of 10 friends and I rented Middlemist for 5 days over the New Year weekend.

Good
Absolutely stunning property. The photos are accurate and each bedroom is unique. Large, comfortable living room (which was nicely festive with a tree) and the cooks in the party loved the kitchen which was well equipped with lots of cooking essentials and utensils. Relatively easy to find on a large estate. Couldn't get to the beach due to a landslide. Owner was easy to deal with and we had milk, bread and tea/coffee on arrival which got us through until the Tesco's delivery arrived.

Bad
Not as clean as would like, with cobwebs and dust. Also, the mezzanine/sofa bed room doesn't offer much privacy so bear this in mind when allocating rooms. Although not a problem with my party, it is certainly not disability friendly.

Would definitely recommend though and would certainly be happy to return.

Management Response
Jan 9, 2013
Apologies for the house being dusty, unfortunately (and unusually) at Xmas our housekeeper was on her own and it's a large house to get ready in just a few hours for the following party. Plus there seem to be many more spiders around this year!! Thank you for letting us know, we will be mindful of this in the future.
Also, for future guests information - the house is advertised as sleeping 8 which it does comfortably, the sofa bed is used on the odd occasion that there is a party of 10 and we do make it clear that it is in the lounge of the bedroom that is galleried (the video on the website makes it even clearer); and our guest is right, the house is not suitable for certain disabled guests and is not advertised as such, especially for those in wheelchairs and/or with walking problems due to the cobbles; stone stairs up to the house and steps and stairs within the house. We wish this was not the case but it is!

“A wonderful place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2012 for a stay in October 2012

Our family of adult children, partners and grand children all enjoyed a fabulous week (half term) in this lovely house. The furnishings, equipment and facilities were all first class, complete with central heating and in the huge lounge a stunning wood burner as well. So cozy. The bedrooms were beautifully furnished and the large kitchen/diner was amazing and so well equipped with absolutely everything you would need. Middlemist is a house on a large private estate with minimal traffic and therefore very safe for walking and cycling.
Highly recommended.
