From the minute I emailed Emilie at Jurassic Coast Holidays I knew we were in for a lovely stay...
She was amazing at answering all of my question ahead of our arrival and helping arrange all the bits I needed help with - she suggested wonderful additional options like yoga , private catering and hot tubs that had we stayed longer we would have loved to have taken advantage of.
Upon our arrival, we were greeted by Emilie who was as lovely in person as she had been in our communication... and the house.. well it was beautiful.
Every room was presented so cleanly and with such lovely styling that all of the guests were thrilled - everyone felt like they were staying at a 5 star hotel so no one was disappointed with their rooms which is important when you have a group who are all sharing the cost equally.
The bathrooms, and indeed the entire house were sparkling clean and the kitchen kitted out with everything we needed for our stay.
We unfortunately didn't get to stay long enough to make the most of all the area has to offer but we did enjoy a walk from the house down to the lovely pebbled beach and through the pretty town...but mostly we all just enjoyed the house - having meals together, having space to hang out in the communal areas but also enjoying our own rooms.
We were a group of 13 30-40 year olds who had managed to escape the kids to have some time together as friends and it worked perfectly for us... everyone was thrilled - the house had a wow impact and with Emilie's help and her genuine desire for us to have a wonderful stay meant that we really did have a fabulous weekend.
This would also work for a stay with families there as there is great garden and playroom for the little ones.
Overall we were really happy with our stay and would definitely rent this house again.
Many thanks once again to Emilie who really took time and hard work to makes sure everything was perfect.
Wonderful family holiday
We had the perfect family holiday at Watch Hill. The house accommodated 16 adults and 5 children really well and Emilie could not have done more to help us. She arranged breakfast cooks, evening chefs, a hot tub, access to the tennis club, cots and high chairs, deliveries of delicious English wines and beers, and even a yoga class, all to a really high standard. We loved the short walk to the beach, swam in the sea every day, walked extensively on the stunning cliffs and generally had a perfect family break. Watch Hill is the perfect venue for a large gathering of family or friends and I highly recommend it.
Grand villa in a magic location
Watch Hill was the perfect place for an extended family celebration. The sea views are superb and the house is a short walk from the centre of the village and the beach. We were a party of 15 and the kitchen handled our meal preparation requirements very well. Thanks to the host for the welcome bottle of champagne and local wine. The photos and descriptions are accurate. Good to note that all 8 bedrooms (all generously sized) have double or queen beds, no singles (the play room has a child-sized bunk but the mattresses were not terribly comfortable). The dining room could not seat all our party together, so this is our one suggestion of an improvement to consider, so that the dining capacity better matches the bedroom capacity. (There is a separate breakfast room seating 6, but this did not work for our type of group who wanted to dine together).
A magical and truly luxurious holiday
The house was amazing, far more beautiful in reality!!
We loved all the rooms. The interior design suited perfectly, so simple and yet so elegant. It was a real home from home, every detail creatively thought out. This is a warm and welcoming home, ideal for entertaining. It´s a gorgeous house and we made absolutely the perfect choice. I would book it again and again.
Emilie was the most amazing host you could ask for, nothing was too much trouble - she organised us a private chef who indulged us, private yoga sessions, filled our fridge and always made sure we were happy.
The only downside - we couldn't stay longer!!
The sea views were great to see in the morning and the kids loved the playroom that had been designed and thought out to the highest spec!
Thank you - we will be back.
Love the Williams family xx
