A comfortable thatched cottage in a village well positioned for the coast path walks we wanted to do between Lyme and Weymouth. Very welcoming village pub. Parking immediately outside no problem during our stay.

Beautiful cottage with the best equipped kitchen I have ever come across in a holiday let. Lovely village location with a local pub and a short walk to a second one. It is only a short drive to a lovely beach and special cafe.
