This spacious and excellently furbished cottage was ideal for two people. Everything was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The location is quiet with very nice views over neighbouring fields. The owners were friendly and helpful. The cottage is situated conveniently for exploring the Jurassic Coast area, with many towns and villages within easy reach by car. It is a few minutes away from the A35 which allowed for fast access to other routes. Highly recommended for a peaceful getaway in a lovely part of the country.
We have just returned from a 4 night stay at Buckhouse Farm, Deborah and Anthony were very welcoming and accommodating during our visit. It was lovely being on the farm our son loved seeing the tractors, cows, sheep and above all Bella and Jess (such lovely dogs)! Due to the weather we didn't get to use the pool. The toy box was a big hit with our 3-year-old son, we took loads of our own toys, but he didn't look at them once! The barn is very nicely decorated with wonderful views, however we do have some personal feedback following our stay.
The barn is open plan and all hard-wood flooring; therefore, any sound can be heard in any room and when you have a 3-year-old and a 6-month-old trying to nap, that was quite tricky.
The barn could have been a bit cosier of an evening, even though the barn is not overlooked blinds on the windows and balcony doors would have been nice. Sadly, the sofas are not very comfortable and only seat 4 people, the other two seats were chairs.
The kitchen was nicely done, however there was no cupboard storage for our food, so we had to put it all on the work surface which didn't leave any room to cook our dinners. Finally, the blind in the room with the single beds that our son was sleeping in didn't close, thankfully we had taken our own blackout blind so this didn't matter, but had we not it would have been very annoying.
We still had a lovely time at Buckhouse, we just feel the style of house didn’t work for us as a young family, but had our children been older or we were going with friends it would have been more suitable. We didn’t find the lanes off putting or difficult to navigate, it was nice to feel truly out in the country. Thank you.
