    Tasteful Bettiscombe Cottage sleeping up to 6 guests

    Gather up the family for a holiday to The Old Forge; it has a shared games room, play area and nearby attractions.
    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.
    Formerly two cottages, The Old Forge is an attractive and spacious cottage, offering ground floor accommodation all on one level. Large double-aspect living room with multi-fuel stove and beamed ceiling. Two steps to well-equipped fitted kitchen/dining room with range cooker, beamed ceiling and door to private garden. Laundry/boot room. Two double bedrooms, one with 5ft four poster bed. Two twin bedrooms (only one twin available from Feb 2019). Two bathrooms with toilet, one with separate shower cubicle.

    "What an amazing house for a family gathering..Everything is well thought out for your comfort.Looking forward to booking again for next year."
    Stacey – 19 Aug 2018
    "Very welcoming hosts.A well equipped comfortable cottage, perfect for families and those with dogs. Really good value for money. We really enjoyed our stay here."
    E – 10 Jul 2018
    "Overall cleanliness not great.Kitchen was very grubby. Much of the crockery and utensils food stained. Towels were musty smelling and all needed laundering before use.Owners were helpful and did their best to fix a non flushing toilet and replace inefficient washer dryer. A separate dryer would have been useful considering there were eight people staying.All the amenities were overstated. i.e. on site shop not open, games room under equipped (no ping pong balls for table tennis)"
    Hannah – 19 May 2018
    "Lovely cottage and it was perfect for us being 4 adults, 3 young kiddies and 2 dogs."
    Confirmed guest – 8 May 2018
    "Very friendly landlord and nice house with enough space. Game room is perfect for the kids and also for the parents!"
    Martina – 26 Mar 2018
    "Lovely accommodation with plenty of room for four couples. Bathroom facilities could be upgraded to include another shower but we managed for the weekend. We stayed over a snowy weekend and it was lovely and warm with the wood burner."
