This lovely ils house was perfect for a family gathering. All ages were catered for. It was warm and well situated.
Mrs Kenning September 2021
WE COULD NOT BELIEVE HOW CLEAN, WELL EQUIPPED, BRILLIANTLY LOCATED FOR THE BEACH, NISA ( almost everything one could possibly require) PHARMACY, EXCELLECT FARM SHOP etc the house was. We would certainly book again. Loved Lyme Regis without the crowds after the weekend .. found the creperie,. I do have friends near Blandford and they didn’t know Charmouth and they loved it too, THANK YOU Caroline Ingram rang the first morning which was lovey especially reassuring as our little chap had not been well before arrival. All good thank goodness. We all had a fantastic holiday. In fact my husband has just said we want to keep it a secret and I agree.
Mrs Tjia-McMurray August 2021
Our stay at The Manor House exceeded our expectations. The property was as described and as per the photographs (not always the case!). The house was so wonderfully equipped - we were delighted. Both the housekeeper and homeowner very kindly called to check that things were ok. It was such a 'home-from-home' that we instantly relaxed. Both the house and garden were beautiful and we hope to visit again. A really great first experience with Classic Cottages.

Great cottage for large parties .. comfy and cozy with everything you could possibly need in the kitchen .. The pool table was perfect ..as the weather wasnt .. so it was well used !! Beautiful gardens !
Mrs Turnell June 2021
We credit this property for making our holiday so special. A beautiful, character house and magical garden which none of us wanted to stray far from. Your every need is thought of with an extremely well-equipped kitchen, pool table and if required buckets, spades, garden and indoor games. The housekeeping is superb which is important regardless but even more so during these nervous times. It was a joy to stay there.
Ms. Laswed April 2021
Our stay at the Old Manor House was such a great experience. It was our first stay at a fully self catered home. The house was so well equipped and was immaculately clean. I found communicating with the housekeeper, Dawn, very straightforward and she was readily available. Putting the fire on in the evening and sitting in the living room was lovely. Would definitely recommend your company and service- and looking forward to booking with you again in the future. Thank you.

Such a beautiful house, immaculate and well fitted out. So much space and everything we hoped for. I loved the garden which was obviously well cared for and just perfect for three big dogs who could zoom about safely!
Mrs Bain-Mollison August 2020
The layout and the location plus being able to park right outside is amazing. The games, pool room and layout of the house make it a great place to stay. The beds were comfy too.

Amazing location and an absolute pleasure to stay in this fabulous house. Looking forward to returning.
Mrs Tyler September 2019
Ideal for family gatherings, the owner has given a lot of thought to ensuring that everyone is catered for. One of the best holiday homes I have stayed in
Mrs Pashley July 2019
Beautiful cottage, perfect location, lovely little town not too busy, everything you need you can buy there, so didn’t need the car, which we managed to park outside the property, easy walk to the beach which was just perfect. Definitely would come back
Mrs Gosden May 2019
It was a wonderful stay in a perfect property and superb location. The only thing missing was cutlery trays for the dishwashers otherwise the kitchen was massively well stocked with every item you could wish for. It was beautifully clean and we wished we could have stayed longer. We will definitely return. Thanks to you and the owners for my husband’s birthday cards and bottle. He enjoyed his 60th Birthday very much!

Thanks so much for sharing your review - we're delighted to hear that you had a fabulous holiday and your husband enjoyed his birthday celebrations. The owners really have thought of everything you could possibly need whilst on holiday - the Miele dishwasher has a separate cutlery drawer at the top of the dishwasher so we're sorry if this was missed. We hope to welcome you back again soon! Kari, Customer Support
Ms Coombs May 2019
Excellent, thoughtful and personalised service, along with a beautiful propery. We would highly recommend Classic Cottages and will definitely be using them again.
Mr Inglis April 2019
This is our second visit the house is beautiful. It’s well equipped the kitchen exceptionally so. Decorated in keeping with its period and the beds are so comfortable. Close to the beach I”d recommend it for a large family or group get away.
Mrs Bleakley April 2019
lovely, relaxing cottage, kitchen is very well equipped and garden is fantastic, sun all day in different bits, and lovely to relax in - a stones throw from Charmouth beach... and a quiet house at night
Mrs Lealan April 2019
Warm, comfortable, spacious, well equipped, home from home - simply lovely.
Mrs Matthews March 2019
An exceptional property - everything I hoped for and more during my stay. I didn't know Charmouth but would definitely return should I have the need for a large house in the future. The owner is very proactive too and a boon that they are happy to have dogs. It's my third property through you and you have never disappointed!
Mrs Rixson December 2018
Great house in a great location. Lovely secure garden. Brilliantly equipped. Lovely touches for a New Year’s Eve stay. Great attention to detail and excellent customer service from both housekeeper and owner. Thank you!!
Miss Smith November 2018
This cottage is perfect in every way. We especially enjoyed the log fire. Thank you!!
Mrs Jenkins November 2018
It's an old house so part of its charm is the slightly uneven floors here and there. Very full kitchen with all the utensils you could ask for so eating in was easy. Centrally located so very easy to eat out or take away too. Shops were well equipped and the bakery a couple of doors down is wonderful. Lots of space for all the family and we thought the garden was charming. Very pleasant stay. Thank you Mrs Inghams.
Mrs Gardner October 2018
My 4 friends were looking for a special property in which to spend our annual girls away weekend and The Old Manor House more than met our expectations. We all slept well in the lovely comfy beds and loved the kitchen, so well equipped. In 11 years of our October weekends , The Old Manor House is one of the best properties we have stayed on and we are all very, very fussy!
