Fabulous location for local walks and a good base for exploring the Jurassic coast. Comfortable accommodation. We all enjoyed being so near the sea and the feel of being in the countryside. Shop and pub being so close were very convenient.

Stunning location - second to none . Little more care required in general upkeep of what should be an exceptional holiday home. Immediate response when we shared our concerns with Classic Cottages so hopefully moving forward issues can be addressed and this amazing house can live up to it’s 5 * potential.

The cottage is expensive for a week and perhaps the cost of logs for the wood burner should be included

Reply from Classic Cottages

We're sorry that you felt the cottage was expensive. We do carefully consider the pricing of all of our cottages for every week of the year to reflect changes in season and various other factors. We do feel that The Guardhouse is fairly priced but we'll certainly forward your comments to the owners for their consideration along with your thoughts on complimentary logs.

Opening the bedroom curtains in the morning and seeing this wonderful view of the hills/cliffs and sea right before you was memorable.
