Bridport Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

6 bedroom farmhouse to sleep 16 in the countryside of the Marshwood Vale

Taphouse Farm has a large detached stone and brick built house with a slate roof. The farmhouse is situated in the peaceful, picturesque Marshwood Vale; an area of outstanding natural beauty.

The farmhouse has 6 bedrooms, (2 family ensuites) and 2 bathrooms and sleeps 16 plus 2 cots. It has full central heating run off an oil-fired boiler and log fire in the lounge. All exterior doors and windows are double glazed. At the front side of the house is a (12'x8') double glazed conservatory and sliding patio doors to the garden, ideal for that evening drink and barbecue. There is a large stoned patio area with wooden picnic tables and bbq.THERE IS A HOT TUB ON THE PATIO.

The large games barn has a skittle alley, table tennis, 6x3'pool and snooker tables and darts board. There are plenty of car parking spaces near the house and games room.

Guests are welcome to come to the main farm to watch the milking, see baby calves, beef animals, sheep, and dogs. Lambing is usually between February and April. Watch sheep and cattle in the fields in spring and summer out over the garden fence. We also grow winter wheat, spring barley, forage maize and various crops for animal feed. We will be pleased to show you around and answer any questions. We are inspected annually for ABM/FABBL Beef and Lambs Scheme and NDFAS for milk production.

At Morcombelake near the Artwave turn to Whitchurch Canonicorum, follow until a four cross road in the village, here turn right, go past the Village Hall once the School. Take first left marked Gassons Lane, opposite the Berehayes Holiday Cottages, marked Bettiscombe and Marshwood. Follow this road 2.5.miles ignoring all farm entrances until a four cross, here turn left and Taphouse is immediately on you left. We wish you a safe and pleasant journey and if the weather is very wet please use the first instructions, as occasionally the River Char will cover the road near Whitchurch.

Tap House Farmhouse - Peaceful relaxation

  • 5 of 5
We arrived at the house in the middle of a downpour, but spirits lifted when we saw the farmhouse. The house is an ideal destination for a larger party. The hot tub is a dream and the games room great fun of an evening. We all had a great time and would be happy to return, (a sign of a good holiday). The area is fantastic.
Yes it is isolated but to us it was part of the charm, if you want bright lights and night life you will have to drive. Personally I enjoyed the peace and relaxation. Remember it's a farmhouse !

Spacious but run down

  • 3 of 5
For 17people it was spacious enough. Hot tub, very dirty on arrival, thick scum when bubbles turned on, owner did change the water which improved it. Kitchen quite well,equipped. All showers need attention and shower heads cleaning, they were spurting or dribbling. Some towel rails broken, some sink plugs didn't work. Fold up bed base unusable, too many gaps, put mattress on floor. Games room, good equipment but very dirty, especially mattress at the end of the bowls run, it was full of dirt. Good outdoor space, children enjoyed that. Spent most of our time on the beach. Excellent fish and chip shop in Charmouth. Would recommend with reservations.

Great Farmhouse

  • 5 of 5
The house is gorgeous with plenty of room for 16 people. Our nearest neighbours were a group of cows so its extremely peaceful. The hot tub is great and the views around the house are gorgeous.
I would highly recommend this house to anyone thinking of staying there. Lyme Regis is a must while you are there (about 10 min drive) - there is a stone beach, plenty of little shops and places to eat.
The house is located down single track lanes so i would recommend having a big car and be prepared to bump into a few tractors. Would definetly stay here again :-)
