We had a FANTASTIC family holiday here. The house has been perfect for us, great facilities with en-suite in each room. Great garden for the kids and the dog. Location was brilliant and lots of places to explore, including West Bay, fossil hunting in Seatown, Durdle Door, Corfe Castle, Lyme Regis and obligatory fish and chips by the sea. Thanks for a wonderful stay – we would recommend this place. The Guests – Birmingham
Clean, spacious and quiet. The house had plenty of spacious rooms with good equipment. The location was ideal for visiting the coast or exploring inland. Easy access to the property was also important. D Gallon.
