3 Night Stay
Had a fun 3 night break in the cottage. Perfect for the dogs with a short walk to the river and fields. Inside more spacious than originally thought. Plates, bowls and cutlery a bit of a mish-mash. Some of the plates and glasses in a bit of a tired state and in need of being replaced. Upstairs bedroom not very private as it can be viewed from the kitchen. Garden, although not used needed a tidy up as mainly overgrown.
Lovely cosy cottage
Great cottage and perfectly located to explore the area;- nice a peaceful and very welcoming... we will be back!
Delightful cottage in wonderfully quiet location
Set in lovely countryside but still in reach of local amenities, coastal towns and shops. We loved the walk from Beer to Branscombe and also visiting Lyme Regis. The cottage sits next to the original C15th farmhouse but is sheltered within its own garden area with paddocks of ponies, chickens and ducks as neighbours.
Great cottage, good size and layout, tastefully furnished, idyllic spot.
Photos on website don't do justice to the cottage, which is very lovely. Great layout, nice big kitchen, cosy living room overlooking the ponies, comfy beds, beautifully green spot - river walk lovely in both directions just out of the gate, graat beaches at Beer and Branscombe nearby.
Lovely "Little Orchard"
Again we had a wonderful time in this little cottage with enough space for our three children and us. The landscape is really great, our trips to Honiton or to the dartmoor were phantastic, and it was very nice to talk to our hosts, Fiona an Michael! The children loved the friendly animals, and even the weather was fine! We will come back! Uli & Angelika
Charming and peaceful countryside Cottage!
The cottage is spacious and lovingly furnished. There is everything you need. But above all, there is plenty of rest. The owners are very nice and helpful. We loved sitting in front of the fireplace or having breakfast outside in the Garden while watching the horses and ducks. We would love to come back!
