"We had a really lovely holiday in Columbo Cottage! Firstly its a lot bigger than it looks in the pics and is a really comfortable space. The living area was more than big enough for three adults and one child (mummy, daddy, son and nanny) The kitchen equipped for 'proper' cooking and the dishwasher came in so handy! I also loved the fact that the washing machine was a dryer also, this meant I didnt have to have washing everywhere or take damp towels down the beach the next day! The bedrooms are basic but has everything you need. The bathroom has been renovated since the pic on the website and is lovely.Location wise there is literally NO shops and is a good walk/small drive to the nearest (which I think is actually in Lyme Regis) but that's ok as this cottage is a much cheaper option than staying on the seafront. There are horses just outside the cottage and its in lush countryside! The walk to Lyme Regis is quite difficult as its on a steep hill and there is NO parking in the seafront in high season ie all the spaces are taken (seriously, I drove down once and went back to the cottage after 30 mins of looking) so I would advise this cottage to people with good mobility. Lyme Regis a AWESOME and there are soooo many things to do within a half hour drive of the cottage. There was a really helpful box of tourism leaflets in the cottage which we looked at every day for ideas.Location wise DO NOT use the directions on the website/email they are awful! The entrance to the cottages if off Charmouth Road, opposite the entrance to the Park and Ride. Look out for a metal farm gate and the entrance to the little road that leads to the cottage is on the left of the gate. There is NO sign on the gate area which seems daft but once you know where it is its fine.There are a few gripes which the owners need to look at- not all the Velux windows upstairs had safety chains which meant I have to move my young son's bed away from the window as they dont lock either. This needs looking at as its a family cottage and the windows open horizontal to the roof. The hot water was a bit of an issue- at one point it ran out one evening even though no one had had a shower or bath. And the shower tap is really hard to control meaning you risk having a scorching shower and not being able to change it at all (even with 10 mins of twiddling it)I have noticed a few gripes from other previous reviews that seem to not have been looked at so I would suggest the owners did a litttle check of the small things on these reviews.But all in all we loved our time there and would def stay again. Not sure why some of the other super negative reviews have been made as its a lovely good value cottage in a FANTASTIC area."

"This spacious cottage was in a fabulous location but was badly let down by lack of basic cleanliness. Although we did not let this spoil our holiday, we were disappointed that on our first evening we had to request that sheets be changed on one of the beds as there was evidence that this had not been done. We were told on arrival that the carpet had been cleaned that day and indeed this was clean, however we then discovered that this had left a lingering smell, described by my daughter as smelling like 'wet dog'. The cutlery drawer had crumbs from previous occupants, two week old newspaper was found down side of sofa, crumbs under sofa cushions, dirty washing machine drawer, rusty baking trays, bagless hoover full of old debris, sheets and towels that have seen better days and really should be replaced. Last but not least, the windows were exremely dirty and we were reminded of this every time we looked out at the wonderful views from the cottage. There were no dishwasher tablets or cleaning materials at the cottage but toilet rolls had been left for us. Welcome pack consisted of small carton of milk and packet of cookies.This cottage fell way below the standard expected and, having rented many holiday cottages over the past 10 years, this is the first time that I have had to give a review such as this. It is a real shame because this cottage is in a fabulous location, close to Poole and Bournemouth and set in the beautiful Dorset countryside. Myself, my husband, two daughers and 3yr old grandson had a lovely week visiting many places and the weather was beautiful too. In the evenings we enjoyed sitting outside the cottage on the patio and terrace where there were beautifully planted hanging baskets everywhere. There were no other visitors during our stay, so it was very peaceful and quiet."

"Our party of 19 (aged between 6 weeks and 70+) enjoyed a lovely family celebration here. The ground floor and outside area were spacious and well-suited our purpose. There were some minor issues with equipment - eg a badly leaking kettle, a broken shower, but these did not affect our enjoyment of the week. The important areas - toilets, showers etc, were clean but some of the living areas could do with a bit of care and attention. We did feel that one towel per person for a week was not enough - probably better to take your own.We did have a problem with dogs from the farm and elsewhere wandering in uninvited - there are no gates to stop them - this often happened at mealtimes as the weather was good and we ate outside quite a bit.There is no mobile signal at all, and the WiFi only worked very spasmodically. Overall we had a good time and would consider going back there for future family gatherings."

"Wow what more can I say ! The farmhouse was gorgeous and the farm itself was just perfect with the chickens and goats and horses. The children were made to feel very welcome and were invited to help feed the chickens and bottle feed the goats. We were even lucky enough to go horse riding on site and see hr old chicks.The greenhouses full of vegetables on site were open house so the children loved picking fresh veg, although my daughter wasn't keen on the yellow cucumber but happily ate the green ones. The farm manager and her daughter were wonderful as were the owners.We made use of the disabled aspect of the farmhouse for my 88yr old Grandfather and it surpassed all expectation.Overall a fab holiday had by all. Only downside was location as a bit far to certain places we wanted to visit and not many quaint tea shops.... Cannot go on holiday without a cream tea.Big thumbs up from all 7 of us."

"This property is stunning in its appearance and features which exceeded our expectations. There is definitely a wow factor as you first step in to the barn. The rooms are all en-suite and the communal areas are spacious. There is plenty of parking for cars. Underfloor heating downstairs is welcome and the woodburner was very welcome in the evening. The owners lit the woodburner for us twice and provided extra fee logs.There were a few issues with housekeeping which could easily be resolved in order to bring this property up to a 10/10 standard. Some items such as towels and bedding were a bit tired and could do with replacing. The owners were also difficult to reach at times as the property is on a working farm. With these amendments I would recommend this property to families and friends looking for a large, private house for a weekend or a week's holiday."
