About Linda and Tom Knapp

Tom and Linda have had self-catering accommodation attached to their homes for nearly 40 years. Our first venture into holiday accommodation was a farmhouse called Clayhanger in Dorset. We moved to south-west France and had two gites for 20 years which we thoroughly enjoyed running. We have now returned to Dorset and have extended our bungalow with a one bedroom apartment, close to the beach. We enjoy having visitors and are usually available for any enquiries.

Linda and Tom Knapp purchased this apartment in 1991

Why Linda and Tom Knapp chose Dorset

While we were in France we needed a base in Dorset so that we could come home in the winter. We let the bungalow to holiday makers during the summer so that other people could enjoy this beautiful region.

What makes this apartment unique

We love living near to the sea and enjoy sharing the location with our visitors. We have many return bookings and have made many friends.

super cosy little retreat near the beach

  • 5 of 5

This comfortable little retreat was an ideal place for early morning cliff top walks and evening beach strolls, The Hive Café was great - delicious well presented food and the village pubs were super and a 10min walk away. The local area had plenty to see and do with for all types of people - the fossils and geology were excellent and well worth seeing. We had a great stay and Tom and Lynda the home owners) were extremely hospitable.

A lovely apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

I have just got back from a lovely 4 night break with my partner in this apartment. The accommodation it's self was perfect, spacious and homely with all amenities you would need to be self sufficient even including teabags, a washing machine and washing up liquid!

The beach is just a minutes amble down the hill and is a long sandy beach with spectacular cliff views and is very quiet in comparison with local alternatives, we were lucky enough to have extremely sunny weather so went in swimming in the sea every day. It was also comforting that there was a coast guard hut should anyone have any trouble in the water.

We didn't explore the village fully but we did make two visits to one (of the two) pub(s) which was very reasonable for food and tastefully decorated. There is also the Hive beach cafe where we were served lovely fresh sea food on the seafront and lots of other lovely places a 5 minute drive away in Bridport.

I would definitely recommend a stay in this apartment and visits to the surrounding area for anyone looking for a relaxing country break and good local food.

Wünderschöne Gegend und sehr, sehr nette Gastgeber

  • 5 of 5

Wir verbrachten unsere Sommerferien vom 25.07.-06.08.2015 in dem Haus von Linda und Tom. Beide sind sehr freundliche und zuvorkommende Gastgeber. Nach einem herzlichen Willkommen zeigte uns Linda unser Feriendomizil. Ein hübsches kleines Anbauhaus mit zwei Etagen. Die untere Etage dient zum Wohnen, Essen und Duschen. Die obere Etage ist das Schlafzimmer. Der Außenbereich ist eine toll angelegte Terasse zur Eigennutzung und der wunderschöne Garten von den beiden, den man mitbenutzen darf. Unsere Hündin Paula fühlte sich so wohl, sie dachte, es wäre ihr Garten! Das Haus liegt ca. 500 m Luftlinie vom Meer und der Jurrassic Coast entfernt. Hier kann man tolle Spaziergänge machen und schwimmen gehen. Da die Enländer ihre Wiesen und Weiden für Fußgänger frei geben, haben wir mit Paula lange Spaziergänge über die sogenannten Footpath getätigt. So ziemlich jeder Engländer besitzt mindestens einen Hund. In der Nähe des Hauses liegen, West Bay, Lyme Regis, was sehr zu empfehlen ist, es zu besuchen und Weymouth. Wir machten sogar einen Ausflug nach Dartmoor, das ca. zwei Stunden Autofahrt entfernt liegt. Auch traumhaft schön und sehenswert. Das Haus ist super ausgestattet, mit eigenem Gefrier- und Kühlschrank, eigener Waschmaschine und Geschirrspülmaschine. Zu Fuß kann man an einer kleinen Tankstelle in Burton Bradstock, einem Spar kleinere Dinge einkaufen. Für den Großeinkauf gibt es in Bridport, ca. 10 min. entfernt einen Supermarkt Morrison und einen Lidl. In Burton Bradstock kann man gut essen gehen, z. Bsp. im Three Horseshoes oder im Anchor Inn. Alles in allem verbrachten wir einen tollen Urlaub bei Linda und Tom. Danke dafür. Sie luden auch eine Freundin ein, die deutsch sprechen konnte, da unser englisch nicht so gut war. Danke an Rose. Wir würden wieder dort Urlaub buchen, wenn wir nochmals in die Gegend kommen sollten. Dieses Ferienhaus ist sehr zu empfehlen!

Thomas, Katja und Tim mit Hündin Paula
