    Brilliant House for all the Family

    We have just returned from a weeks stay at the farmhouse and I thoroughly enjoyed it. With two children under 3 and the in-laws, we found that there was more than enough room - in fact my eldest loved to play hide and seek both inside and out! It is perfectly situated for short drives to all the typical tourist attractions and if we were to return to the area for another holiday I would certainly look to stay at the farmhouse again!

    Having read the very positive August review of the author and his family's experiences, we can identify with the comments made. Likewise, we were a family of three generations, aged from the late 60s to a 9 nine year old. It was so very nice to find a home which accommodated all 8 of us comfortably. We enjoyed a home cooked Christmas lunch in a wonderful dining room. Everything needed to facilitate the preparation of the food, it's consumption etc. was provided for. Ease of access to the home on arrival and immediate contact if required, to the Owner, Nicola, via phone were greatly appreciated. Thank you Nicola for allowing us to use your home over the Christmas period which enabled us, as a family to enjoy our time together.

    The Farmhouse was a lovely size and plenty of space for 8 people and a boisterous dog. Bedrooms all v comfy and nice to have 3 en-suites. Dining room was fab as was the kitchen facilities and the conservatory. Garden was lovely in the sun with plenty of room to eat out and the the kids to play. Farmhouse was easy to find and v clean and tidy on arrival. The Royal Oak in the village was walking distance and the food there was great and good value. Play area in the beer garden also - great for small kids. Easy access from here to all the lovely beaches along the Jurassic coast as well as National Trust places and other local museums e.g. Tanks and Monkey world! Something for everyone and would recommend to families and friends.
