“Will visit again”
Reviewed October 13, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We (a mixed group with small children) rented two cottages (Bilshay Farmhouse and Eagle's Nest) for a weekend. The cottages were both fantastic, beautiful, well decorated with every detail seemingly thought of. Money has not been spared on these houses, the linens are high quality, the kitchen is fully stocked and the log basket was full. The hot tubs were almost as amazing as the views.

Both were fantastic and everyone had an amazing time. We will likely visit again, highly recommended.

“Beautiful House with Stunning views!!!”
Reviewed September 5, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Me & my family have just come back from staying at this beautiful farmhouse & it was everything we wanted for 6 adults & a dog the farmhouse was very spacious all rooms very good size with kingsize beds. We made use of the lovely hamper left for us apon our arrival, our jack russel absolutely loved the garden run around in, the hot tub was an added bonus looking out on the stunning views the farmhouse is equipped with everything you need. Bilshay farmhouse is 5 minute drive away from any shops & a 10 minute drive to the nearest beach. Will definitely be booking again for next year!!!

“A beautiful house with wonderful views”
Reviewed August 18, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We had a wonderful family holiday at Bilshay Farmhouse. The house is beautifully decorated, well equipped and had plenty of space for the 8 adults, 2 children and small dog in our party! The views across the fields were breathtaking and we made good use of the garden furniture, BBQ and hot tub, which was a real bonus. The children loved the trampoline and spacious garden. The farmhouse is perfectly situated for visiting the Jurassic coast line and there is so much to do in the local area we were spoilt for choice.
We will definitely be back!!

“Wonderful stay. They've thought of everything.”
Reviewed August 17, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We had a wonderful stay at the Bilshay Farmhouse - I would highly recommend it. The owners have thought of everything - the house is very comfortable and well equipped - both the house and garden are child-friendly - the children loved the trampoline and it was wonderful to relax in the hot-tub in the evening sunshine. The garden is really pretty and the house has an amazing view. The house is well located for Bridport and lots of popular Dorset locations, and we enjoyed going for walks/jogs/bike-rides on the Symondsbury Estate, and visiting the local farm shop and cafe. We would certainly stay there again - loved it.

“First class, idillic location for a family get together”
Reviewed July 7, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We stayed at Bilshay Farmhouse for a week with our adult children and their significant others. There were 4 couples in all. The farmhouse was very comfortable for both living space and sleeping accommodation. The kitchen / dining room is well equipped, clean and spacious.
We made full use of the BBQ, outside dining furniture and hot tub as we had wonderful weather.
Bilshay is a great place to relax, unwind and enjoy being together as a family. The views of the Dorset countryside are stunning. There is plenty of opportunity for long (or short) walks. The local amenities (especially food related ones) are all a short car journey away as are any number of beaches along Dorset's Jurassic Coast.
We all loved our stay at Bilshay and would happily recommend it to others (as it was recommended to us). Looking forward to visiting again.

“lovely”
Reviewed February 28, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

just returned from a weeks break. we had a wonderful time. The farmhouse was lovely, well equipped, comfortable, clean, spacious yet cosy.We were provided with a very generous welcome hamper with goods from the local farm shop.
The views were stunning and the walking great. The hot tub was actually hot and well maintained.
This was one of the only rentals that would accept four dogs. It had a brilliant utility are for the very wet hounds to dry of and stretch out .
I would thoroughly recommend this house to anyone who wants to get away from it all for some rest and quite surrounded by beautiful countryside yet only ten minutes drive from the gorgeous beaches and the town of Bridport.

“Fantastic Girly Gettaway”
Reviewed February 10, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

6 friends and I stayed at Bilshay Farmhouse this weekend just gone.
The house is beautiful, so clean and fully equipped.
Beds were clean and comfy, bathrooms lovely, kitchen fully kitted out with great socialising space.
The log fire in the lounge was perfect for us all to sit round with wine, nibbles and dvds!
The hot tub was an added bonus!
The views are also breath-taking.
I have no negative comments to make.
This was my second stay and I would stay again and recommend to anyone wanting a girly get away or a family trip.
