  4. The School Room was one of the best holiday accommodations we have stayed in. The owners made us most welcome, even our dog had a fresh bowl of water and tin of food waiting for him and his own towel provided. Wonderful location. Thoroughly recommended. Oct 2011.
  5. Lovely cottage with everything you need and much more. Pauline was very welcoming and left a lovely welcome pack and some toys for our little daughter. Lovely and thoughtful. Great location for a lot of local activities and a lovely friendly village location. What more can you ask for! Aug 2011.
  6. A fabulous cottage in a lovely village. The owner, Pauline, and everyone we met were really friendly. Like home from home. Slight down side was that there was no pub in the village, but we managed without!! Visit to Forde Abbey a must, also Lyme Regis and Barrington Court (National Trust). July 2011.
  7. Quiet relaxing place in heart of country. Lovely friendly village with fantastic village shop/cafe. Cottage equipped with everything you need. Owner in adjoining house is very nice and provided a welcome pack of fresh bread, butter, milk, biscuits and wine which was much appreciated. July 2011.

  11. Excellent cottage, owners really made us feel very welcome, nothing was too much trouble. All in all a great break. June 2011.
  12. The accommodation was very clean and tidy. Although joined to the owners property it has it’s own front and side/rear entrance, with your own rear enclosed private patio area. We were made very welcome by the owners. Waiting for us there was tea, coffee, milk, bread, butter, wine and biscuits. For Tia our dog there was a towel a nice tin of dog food and food bowels if we wanted them. The accommodation is in a very quite area, you won’t find Weatherspoons or nightclubs. The nearest pub we found is about 4-5 miles, so be prepared to travel to Chard, Axminster, Bridport or further for any nightlife. May 2011.
