Warm welcome, wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

Linda and Tom kindly suggested that we defer our arrival for a couple of days because of the snow, a very kind gesture which meant we didn't miss our holiday and were able to enjoy better weather.

The accommodation was very comfortable and highly suitable for us and our Labrador who had free run of the garden.

The apartment is an excellent base for beach walks and country rambles and also close to places of interest such as Lyme Regis and Abbotsbury. With more time we could have visited many more places in easy reach of the house.

Linda and Tom were so helpful, providing us with detailed information of where to shop and where to park in Bridport and Lyme Regis and coming in to help us when we failed to master the lighting of the gas fire and cooker. Their friendliness added greatly to our enjoyment of our holiday.

We would certainly recommend a stay in this lovely apartment.

Lovely accommodation, shame about the weather!

  • 5 of 5

Immaculately clean, very comfortable. Kitted out with everything you could possibly need,even an electric blanket. The owners, Tom and Linda extremely welcoming, couldn't do enough for you, we were invited into their home for a drink. Very knowledgeable about the area and recommended a few places to visit. Only downside was the weather, Tom and Linda couldn't do anything about that!

A very Merry Christmas!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful find! This annexe is fully equipped with everything you need - home from home. Perfect for us as a couple to be able to leave the car (private parking) and take a walk to the beach, or along the cliff walk. We had a special Christmas here, warm & cosy. This is also a great base for getting around Dorset. Would definitely have no hesitation in recommending this apartment.

Excellent apartment in an excellent location with excellent owners Tom and Linda. After just a couple of days we felt like we had come to stay with old friends! Thanks for the hospitality and specially to Tom for taking us down to Lyme Regis for the guitar festival after we missed the bus! Will be back!

Luxury and friendliness

  • 5 of 5

Another glorious two weeks here with Tom and Linda.The apartment is brilliant with everything you could want and if it isnt there then Tom will try to get it.Being allowed to use their garden is bonus especially as the apartment is dog friendly.Only minutes from Hive Beach,Hive Cafe and National Trust land.Nearby West Bay where Broadchurch is made.A bit further to Bridport which is a bustling market town frequented by Martin Clunes and Hugh Fearley-Whittingstall to name just two.Lots of local pubs and restaurants or just relax on the patio and watch the busy world go by.Many thanks Tom and Linda,we will return.

Seaside Luxury

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful one bedroom apartment that we have used on several occasions and have known Tom and Linda for over 20 years.They are lovely people.The advantage of taking the dog and for her to be allowed in the large garden is brilliant.Tom and Linda are fantastic hosts and you need for nothing.Ample parking space and being so close to Chesil Beach is a great advantage.The whole area is great with the local village having everything you need for a relaxed holiday.The owners listen to you for any alterations or improvements and attend to them with no complaint.We will book this property for years to come.Well done Tom and Linda.
