I booked this 17 th century farmhouse on the Monkton Wyld campsite because I was looking for a place for myself and 5 friends to spend a girls weekend away.
There were plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms so that was a big bonus for us.
The house is quirky, lots of steps up and down into rooms, beams, massive inglenook fire place, log burner, uneven walls etc.
It is clean, well maintained and ideal for a group like us but would be a perfect base for a family holiday. It sleeps 10, a lovely master with ensuite, a double and single in room 2, 3 singles in room 3, and downstairs a double bed settee in a room near the utility room.
A great house and a great location. I hope to return with my family.
If the weather had been better we'd have gone walking at Charmouth but we did manage a trip to Lyme Regis and got some lunch from the River cottage deli in Axminster, which was lovely.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Monkton Wyld Camping, Caravanning & Static Holiday Caravans offers idyllic Camping and Caravanning in West Dorset. Straddling the Dorset/Devon border only three miles from the coastal village of Charmouth and the historic harbour town of Lyme Regis; centre of the World Heritage Jurassic Coastline. The park lies in 25 acres of beautifully landscaped and carefully maintained grounds; over the last 17 years we have focused on ensuring that the park complements the rich landscape of the West Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Shrubs, trees and flowers abound while mature oaks spread across surrounding farmland that forms the rolling countryside. We have also enhanced the site by the careful planting of native woodland to divide the grounds into several separate small paddocks which add to the general atmosphere of peace and quiet. ... more less
