Lovely extras including wine, flowers and biscuits. Owners Trish and Phil available if needed but very discreet, despite being just next door. Was a perfect base for us to visit our friends in Bridport.

Accommodation well equipped and suited our needs perfectly. We did a lot of walking with fantastic views and the weather was kind to us. Perfect accommodation to come back to at the end of the day to relax after a long walk. We really enjoyed our stay.
