Perfect for a family celebration weekend
Taphouse was voted totally fit for purpose by our whole party (70th celebration). Our teenagers made full use of the hot tub and the games barn and the adults enjoyed the farm house. Everything was even more perfect than we had hoped - even the weather was gorgeous. For a mixed party such as ours (9 adults, 6 kids, 1 baby) it was ideal accommodation in an ideal spot. Sue visited us on our first evening and couldn't have been more helpful. Very highly recommended!!
We had a family gathering for my dad's 60th birthday at this beautiful house. The property is well equipped for a large amount of people. The hot tub was very enjoyable, even in November! Comfortable beds, lots of space and definitely worth a visit. Thankyou for an awesome weekend!
Comfortable and spacious property
Our family of 10 had a brilliant week! We felt the farmhouse had a homely feel to it and was comfortable and well equipped. The location is an ideal base in the country with lovely views of the surrounding countryside. The children loved the large garden with its rope swings and well kept lawns. We all enjoyed the games barn and the hot tub was clean and well maintained. Our family love Lyme Regis (enjoyed 2 days on the beach) which together with Bridport and Charmouth is a short drive away. We spent a day at Crealy World of Adventures which is a great family day out.The owners of the property are friendly and helpful. We would certainly recommend a stay here to anyone that wants a relaxing break in the country, near to traditional Dorset/Devon sea resorts. We hope to revisit in the near future.
Thank you for your lovely review. It always nice to hear guests have enjoyed their holidays at our any of our properties. We are so lucky in West Dorset with some beautiful countryside and 'fab' Jurassic coastline.
The perfect week away in the countryside!
16 of us came to stay for a week aged between 11 - 77, we had the most amazing time and were all very sad to leave. The clean homely cottage is spacious, warm and has all the amenities you could possibly need (including enough saucepans, oven space etc. to cook an Easter roast for 16 people). It is set in an idyllic location with a lovely garden over looking fields (the swing was a big hit). The games room kept everyone entertained in the evenings along with the well maintained hot tub. Although it is in the middle of nowhere, everyone we bumped into was very friendly, including the farmers who came over to talk to the children about the cows and sheep. It is the perfect place to get away from everyday life, and we would all highly recommend it :)
