This inviting, compact property is perfect for couples looking for a romantic getaway and a great base for discovering the area.

Small, but well equipped and spotless. Everything you need really. Very peaceful and quiet. The grounds are well kept. We were lucky with the weather and travelled around , lyme Regis just 5 minutes away.

Nicely decorated in a nautical style, lounge/kitchen/dining area is comfortable. As mentioned by others the bedroom is small and awkward. No wifi available but mobile reception is good. A good location for Charmouth and Lyme Regis, fantastic walks and scenery in this area of Dorset. Good information available for walks and sightseeing.

The cotttage is in a good location to travel to Lyme Regis, and Charmouth beaches. Having parking was a real bonus. The complex was good, being able to breakfast on the patio and also having access to some countryside in the grounds. Having access to the swimming pool was a real bonus.

Very clean and well situated property stylishly decorated. However let down by lack of some basic equipment. Extremely uncomfortable bedroom- very small and bed positioned in corner of room which necessitated climbing over each other to get in and out . Lack of mains water also a real drawback.

Had a lovely mini break. Great hub for visiting lots of Devon & Dorset. Apartment is small but was fine for the 2 of us. Shame we couldnt use pool or hotel restaurant but that was down to covid restrictions . Would stay again if visiting Dorset again.

Oct2020: lovely stay, very clean, everything there (inc soap, antibac, cafetiere). There was plenty of hot water, an electric shower and excellent central heating keeping us nice and cozy.

I loved where the cottage was and my husband and I enjoyed our walk down the hill for food and drinks (covid meant we couldn't use the hotel on site) and enjoyed the walk back up as well. This was a great base for an absolutely amazing holiday. The cottage had everything you needed for a relaxing break.

A lovely little cottage - very small, and was a fair walk from Lyme Regis, but it was nice! We didnt have access to the hotel due to COVID. There isnt WiFi, and depending on provider little signal, so great if you want a week disconnected.

A brilliant location within an easy walk of both Charmouth, for the beach, and Lyme Regis, for restaurants etc and also the nearby golf club bar. The inability, due to Covid, to use the hotel facilities was a shame and it should not have been left until days before our visit to notify us - reference to the facilities should have been removed from tRead morehe property description as it was a bit dishonest to leave it - our choice was definitely influenced by the facilities.

Lovely location and the cottage was nice. Only downside was no WiFi - this meant we had to rely on mobile data for remote working and Netflix in the evenings. This is the first place Ive stayed with no WiFi access, especially at this price. Theres also no drinking water so we had to keep buying more. There were 4 bottles when we arrived but that waRead moresnt enough for our week long stay. Hide
