Idyllic, cosy and beautiful

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for 2 nights as we went on a Cob building course in the area. The accommodation was beautiful, cosy and spotlessly clean. All little extras (that I always pack!!) hand wash, kitchen roll, cling film, were all available in the property, which is a first for any self catering property I've stayed in. Absolutely superb. Stunning views and great location. We wished we had been staying longer!!!

Excellently presented studio appartment in a beautiful and peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

Everything was provided at the appartment, including a lovely cake and farm fresh eggs.

The appartment was warm but we still enjoyed the log fire. The layout and feel of the place was excellent and very relaxing.

We were lucky enough to be there whilst the farm was lambing and we saw new borns throughout the week. Yet you wouldn’t know you were in a farm as it was so peaceful.

The location was ideal for visiting different areas along the Jurassic Coast and during the time we visited (February) the various tourist sites were not over crowded.

We particularly enjoyed Lyme Regis, just 10 Miles away and we visited West Bay where they film Broadchurch, just 3 mikes away...

We had a wonderful stay in the Cider Room. Everything you could ever want was there. We hope to return later this year. Thanks Karen and Bill for your time and trouble to make our holiday so memorable.
