Fantastic cottage, nice and clean and extremely comfortable. Had everything you need for self catering. Lovely, welcoming hosts, who, although live next door, were very discreet. Location was perfect, walk to beach in 12 mins, good pub grub on doorstep and plenty to do.

We had a really lovely week at Midlands Barn. The cottage has everything you could ever need as well as friendly, helpful hosts. Fortunately we had beautiful weather so were out and about most of the time but the cottage was a welcoming place to return to in the evenings. Well placed for the coast path and the stunning Marshwood Vale (if you don't Read moremind hills) as well as the nearby villages such as Lyme Regis and Abbotsbury so there is no shortage of things to do in the area.

Great location - a short walk to Seatown beach and the Anchor Inn and the South Coast Path. The cottage is spacious, well-appointed, very comfortable and recently refurbished.

Excellent location: just a ten minute walk from Seatown beach; and close to the A35 for easy access to other locations in Dorset and East Devon. The cottage is light, spacious, well-appointed, comfortable. The recent refurbishment has made the cottage an excellent place to stay.
