My wife and I, 3 children(6,10 and 12 yrs old) and our 2 mothers stayed at this lovely property for a week. It wasn't quite the rural setting that we were expecting but in no way were we dissappointed. On the Sunday afternoon I cooked on the bbq, the girls relaxed with their wine and the children played cricket in the large rear garden. It felt like you were miles from anywhere, very private rear garden and the children loved the shed full of toys. We spent many an afternoon just relaxing in the back yard.
My mother in law stayed in the folly (granny flat) which gave her some privacy. Upstairs in the attic the children had their own special place with a wide variety of games, television and dvd player. Great for the parents as we could relax and the children could do their own thing if we weren't out doing things.
All the rooms were clean, comfortable and spacious. We found it to be ideal when there was 3 generations staying under the same roof. Cooking facilities were excellent and met all our needs. Very handy having an upstairs and downstairs bathroom. The owners were only a phone call away for any questions that we had, which was reassuring.
Crewcerne was a lovely rural village with a great little museum, adequate shopping facilities for all we needed and some fabulous little pubs. Quiz night at the Royal Oak and great value meals at Oscars wine bar.
We found it to be very central comfortabley doing Weymouth, Lyme Regis, Cheddar gorge and CDreely Adventure Park at Exeter on seperate days out. Coming from Northampton it was also very easy to incorporate a visit to Stonehenge on the way through.
All in all great place for families for a holiday.
