Highway Farm
Ranked #3 of 60 Bridport B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 14, 2014

Had a lovely time in Bridport and surrounding area. Super B and B in the main house with friendly knowledgeable hosts. Well recommended. Will come back and stay in one of their cottages and go self catering. Eating out every night is pricey for 4. The George at Chideock was v good with music thrown in. Ilchester Arms was average fare.

We have just returned from a one night stay here. Our en-suite bedroom was large and very comfortable. It is surrounded by lovely countryside. Pauline was very nice, kind and helpful. Breakfast was very good with a great choice. We enjoyed an evening stroll to the nearby village of Symondsbury for a meal at the pretty Ilchester Arms.Thankyou for everything. Jean & Brian.

A blind B&B booking which not only had some of the best accommodation we have come across, but the added bonus of a friendly and interesting host who conjured up breakfast to die for despite the death of the cottage aga.

Highway Farm is definitely on the top of our places to revisit.

Room Tip: You couldn't do better than the cottage.."Ganders".

We stayed just on a week at Highway Farm Cottage with two active boys.
The well appointed cottage was a home away from home. With a space for our children to run around and feed the chickens!
John and Pauline were fantastic hosts with a wealth of information about the area.
Highway Farm is also ideally located near River Cottage too where I participated in a bread making course.
If your after a place that is clean, warm and in a beautiful setting then Highway Farm is ideal.
Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Even in the winter there is lots to do and see in Dorset. Thank you for your lovely review, it was great to welcome you all to Dorset.

Ganders Cottage is perfect for 2, and it also suits 2 couples, and families of 4 as it has 2 ensuite rooms and one bedroom is on the ground floor.

For B&B or a stay in a Cottage, you cannot do better than Highway Farm! Beautiful countryside, wonderful accommodation, delicious breakfasts and perfect hosts. We've stayed several times and really can't praise them highly enough.

And another cottage review, again great! Even in October you can find things to do with the children, beaches, fossil hunting, climbing and jumping into puddles, what fun! Maybe some more fishing in our lakes? The cows have gone to spend the winter in the barn I'll let Henry know when they come back.

We visited ganders cottage for a short break at start of half term. It is really well situated just outside Bridport. It is quite small but really cosy. Perfect for a couple with two kids. One large king size upstairs and a twin downstairs both ensuite.
Kitchen so well equipped and as a visitor to cottages many times I mean WELL equipped . Lovely welcome tea tray on arrival with home made flapjack, tea and coffee, sugar milk in the kitchen. This is the first self catering cottage when I haven't had to run out to buy salt and pepper, tea bags, hand soap etc. it is all there. I defy you to need anything. Place is spotless and comfortable. Lovely little private garden and lovely hosts. Highly recommended.

A Cottage review, great! Ganders cottage is open all year, it's warm and cosy and you can even have a B&B stay in it in the wintertime, just ask. Lovely to meet you and so pleased you enjoyed your Autumn break exploring West Dorset. Hope you see you back sometime soon.
