    Superb Bettiscombe Cottage sleeping up to 8 guests

    After exploring the countryside and beaches nearby, retreat back to The Hayloft and make the most of good weather by dining alfresco.
    Marshwood Manor offers excellent accommodation and facilities in a tranquil rural setting, surrounded by Dorset’s loveliest countryside, and only 5 miles from the unspoilt beaches and golden sandstone cliffs of the coastline. The estate’s 10-acres of lawn, garden, pasture and woodland offer plenty of room for adults to stroll and children to play.

    The properties have been carefully formed from a fine original range of buildings next to the manor house and may be booked together to accommodate larger groups holidaying together (property refs DEY, DFA, DEX, DUS and DWS). Previously filmed for BBC television, all retain character and charm, whilst offering comfortable holiday accommodation fitted to a high standard throughout. Each has its own garden or courtyard with furniture, and all enjoy shared use of the extensive gardens and grounds. There is a large games barn with pool table and table tennis, and a children’s play area with swings and slide. Approached along a private drive and set well back from the road, the cottages are perfectly positioned for enjoying this delightful corner of Dorset.

    There are a variety of beautiful beaches, both sand and pebble, within a five to ten mile radius, including those at Lyme Regis, Charmouth, Seatown, Eype, West Bay and Burton Bradstock. Fossil-rich cliffs define this dramatic stretch of coastline, which encompasses the 2,000-acre National Trust estate of Golden Cap. This is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and superb walking country, both on the rolling chalk hills overlooking fertile inland valleys and on the coastal footpaths offering spectacular clifftop views. It is also an area full of romance and history, with three ancient hill forts and the house and gardens of Forde Abbey all nearby.

    A range of attractions is on offer in nearby country towns. Lyme Regis is a pretty seaside resort, its elegant colour-washed buildings and promenade lining a handsome harbour. Motor boats can be hired and there are fishing trips, a sailing school and a windsurfing school. Bridport is a thriving market town, featured on TV’s River Cottage, the Port Bredy of Hardy’s novels, offering a good choice of shops, inns, restaurants, an arts centre and a sports centre with indoor pool. The coastline is excellent for sea fishing and inland waters offer good coarse fishing. Golfers will find courses at Lyme Regis and West Bay and there is also horse riding nearby within 5 miles. Caterers are available locally. The local shop at Marshwood and two charming thatched country pubs are within a short drive. Shops 2 miles.
    Entrance hall with ground floor cloakroom with toilet. Large well-equipped kitchen/dining room with electric range cooker, dining table, TV, tiled floor and door to front patio area. Separate spacious living room with multi-fuel stove and two sets of French windows to rear garden overlooking countryside and the National Trust land at Pilsdon.

    "Perfect for a weekend get away, love the games room and shop, very welcoming hosts."
    Penny – 25 Sep 2018
    "The Hayloft was perfect for our holiday. Spacious and comfortable and great location for exploring Dorset. Would definitely recommend."
    Karen – 14 Jul 2018
    "The property was in a lovely position near to a farm and animals, I can’t fault the kitchen apart from some of the utensils were dirty and the dishwasher which didn’t seem to be big enough for the amount of people staying. The cleanliness of the house was a lot to be desired, maybe I shouldn’t put my high standards on others but I do not think the front room cushions have been hoovered under for some time and there were other people’s toys etc found under the sofas plus a lot of dust and dead bugs. The bedrooms were cleanish but the showers were not powerful enough and drooped. We made the most of our holiday and had a lovely time in the areas around bettiscombe. The property itself needs a total update."
    Cheryl – 7 Jun 2018
    "The hayloft needs updating with decor and definitely requires new beds asap - beds (except in the small children’s bedroom) are very uncomfortable. The large wardrobe in the smallest bedroom is dangerous as it is very wobbly (and too big for the room). Many thanks"
    Terry – 16 May 2018
    "Very spacious,well equipped cottage in a lovely quiet setting,we had a perfect family break."
    SALLY – 27 Apr 2018
    "We had a lovely time good location plenty of room in the cottage"
    Clare – 17 Mar 2018
    "We had a fantastic time at The Hayloft. Lots of space and a great location so close to the lovely town of Lyme Regis. We had everything we needed and we already said it would be lovely to make it a yearly event. The only tiny thing that would make it perfect was to improve the showers. They were fine when you used one of them but if they were both being used at the same time they were a little weak."
    Erica – 26 Feb 2018
    "We had a fabulous half term week in The Hayloft with both sets of grandparents and our 3 children. The facilities were brilliant and the cottage had everything we needed. There is lots to do in the surrounding area and even in February we managed a couple of picnics on the beach even if we were all wearing hats, scarves and gloves! We had no issues with the accommodation but I had the impression that if we had they would have been dealt with promptly. Everyone in our party agreed they would stay here again."
