"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."

"It was an ideal setting for a large family gathering, really well equipped, all 16 of us had boiled eggs for one of the breakfasts! The house was very comfortable (including the beds!), with nice, good quality furnishings while also feeling relaxed, spacious but cosy. Two sitting rooms both with fires and ample comfortable sofas were pleasant in the evenings. There was something for everyone; the lads had a table tennis tournament, nearly everyone got in the pool, the garden was secure for the dogs and the playroom in the house was very popular with chess being played by the youngsters. It is also in a beautiful spot, with lovely walks from the door. Despite being close to the main road we could hardly hear a thing due to the thick walls and good glazing. Very much recommended!"

"It is well equipped and warm which was much appreciated as the weather was unsurprisingly cold and although dry was very windy due to Storm Barbara. Very close to the Chesil beach, the harbour and local pubs which was really handy as over the Christmas period the harbour area was very busy. For those with small or large kids a play-park about 100 yards away and which caters for all ages was the best we have ever seen and free. Dinner in the Station Kitchen, just behind the cottage was excellent. A great week. The dog loved it also and the little doggie touches added by the owner were appreciated. Great area and great cottage. Stayed December 2016"

"Water in shower a dangerously hot and couldn’t reduce -we had to spend nearly ten pounds on a mat for in the bath or showering very risky. Bath not really wide enough with small flat surface to stand. The stairs we were warned about but it needs a rail both sides. Also move the bed on the door wall in the twin room to the other side - nearly knocked out getting up in the night on the beam. H&S not that difficult!! Also never been anywhere where salt and pepper not part of the start up welcome pack. Batteries need changing in the remotes - when football on an hour getting it on isn’t good! The other bits provided were excellent."

"The service has changed dramatically and certainly far below previous high standards of Helpful Holidays. I was unable to get answers to queries and kept on the telephone for ages. The person dealing with the queries was unable to answer them without referring to a Manager. The website for Sykes holidays is very poor in comparison to Helpful Holidays. This is so sad having used Helpful Holidays for many years. Park Farmhouse is an excellent holiday home and we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Such a well equipped kitchen when catering for 15 people. Perfect location and very comfortable. Thank you"
