We were met on arrival by Bev. and Peter who made us feel at home right away. They were a lovely friendly couple and a fountain of knowledge throughout our stay with just the right mix of being friendly without being intrusive. The property was so well prepared, absolutely fresh and spotless and the welcoming gift covered all the essentials for a much needed bite after our four hour drive, it even included a bottle of wine to help ease the journy. How did they know our favorite wine is a rose? The mews is modern warm and well laid out. It`s has all the mod. cons. and is really comfortable with plenty of space to relax. We are interested in walking and there are a huge number of trails locally accessible directly from our front door. We also managed to get in some cliff walks along the Jurassic Coast. The local amenities include the local pub in Hawkchurch, again run by a very friendly couple who have retired to the area. There is also a lovely small hotel (just can`t remember the name) where we had a delicious meal. Both are just a couple of minutes drive (or a 15min walk) from the mews. The area is teeming with wildlife and we were delighted to see Roe deer, herons, rabbits, foxes and even an adder. However the highlight of our safari was the nightly visits of our very own badger. There is an old badger sett just up the garden and Bev. kindly provide us with a bag of peanuts and the instruction to throw a handful of these on the grass near the patio each evening and to turn on the small external light. Within five minutes of our retreating to the sitting room a badger would appear and begin to scour the area for peanuts, this normally took fifteen to twenty minutes so we have plenty of photos and videos taken from the sitting room window. We also had visits from Roe deer who showed up early some mornings to feast on Bev`s garden plants. To conclude we had a really terrific time at Orchard Mews. The accommodation is super and the location is just perfect. Peter and Bev were the perfect hosts. We wish then all the best in the future and hope to get back there soon.

                                                                        4 of 5
                                                                        Lovely place for our short stay, spacious bedrooms with farmhouse character, small but comfortable kitchen/diner, pleasant owner gave us plenty of instruction and privacy. Our only problem was the rubbish HomeAway app which was supposed to provide all of our 'essential information', including the property's address! To this day I've not been able to access the app. We found the house relatively easily after a lot of stress, as it's a stand-alone farm just off the main road, by looking at a satellite map and the photos. Had it been in a town we'd still be looking. The farm has a name! And a postcode. Why oh why not just put that in an email? Would we stay again? Yes. Would we use the same booking site? If I was sure that we would be given a full address I would otherwise no.
