Guestbook comments from the manager

This is our 3rd visit to Crepe Farmhouse! Won't speak about the facilities because we know they are 10/10 but must add that the cleanliness and tidiness is also 10/10! Owners have got it right for the perfect holiday and god willing we will be back for our fourth holiday here! Thanks!

Fantastic Time! The kids just loved the pool & games room & jacuzzi. Beautiful setting, we will be back! We have had such a lovely time in your beautiful house, the location is so special and we enjoyed walking to the top of the "hairy hill", thanks so much! We have all had so much fun, cycling walking & relaxing with friends. Fabulous house and the kids have all had a ball!

I loved this place. We hired it at the very last minute after our intended venue was flooded and knew that we might have to settle for somewhere less than perfect given the short time frame available, however, we lucked out when we found Crepe Farmhouse.

The house is a genuine stone farmhouse with bags of character and original features yet with modernisation where it's required i.e. in the kitchen and bathrooms which were all very new, very clean and up to date. The kitchen was exceptionally well equipped with 3 ovens, 2 dishwashers, large double door fridge-freezer and every utensil and gadget you can think of. The pool house was fantastic, it was in constant use all weekend as was the hot tub, sauna and games room.

The basement room was a real bonus, a big HD TV with Sky package including Sky Sports was welcome surprise for the men that thought they were going to miss their weekend football fix and with the addition of a couple of disco light bulbs it became a fantastic night club venue for the late Saturday night party goers.

Credit must be given to the customer service of the owner, Wendy and the Symondsbury Estate team, they were extremely helpful when we were rushing around like headless chickens trying to find a suitable venue to host 17 people at a 50th Birthday weekend with just 3 days to go and they maintained their high standards through out the weekend, nothing was too much trouble.

I didn't see much of the surrounding area but I did get a chance to walk through the picture perfect village of Symondsbury and walk up to the top of Colmer Hill (great for clearing your hangover and working up an appetite for a full English farmhouse breakfast) and we also stopped at West Bay, setting for the TV drama Broadchurch, which was just 5 minutes away by car.

All in all I could not have been happier.

Totally Amazing .

  • 5 of 5

This is the most amazing House .

My family and I spent fri to mon making beautiful memories.

Everything about the place was perfect. The pool was huge for a home pool with changing rooms, showers, sauna, Table tennis, pool table, outside hot tub. Cinema room. Fantastic bedrooms 3 on suite . 2 other bathrooms the same floor as other bedrooms. Our room was on- suite and on the ground floor.

Which was what I needed as unable to do stairs very well. Loved the huge fire place and log fire.

Kitchen huge with everything you need . Little quiet lounge with tv. What more could you ask for, it's perfect.

We also had a lovely roast at symonsbury Kitchen on the Sunday.

The whole estate is fab with lovely little shops.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this beautiful place ..

Thank you.

Alison Bennett 😀? Xx
