'Thanks very much for a lovely stay. Cream tea was delicious. Very comfortbale and family friendly with a little one in tow. Would recommend Lyme Regis, Abbotsbury Farm, especially if you have children. Loved the scenery: rolling hills. Also liked learning about the history at Orchard Lea/seeing old pics of the place.'
