Our second family holiday at the Old Manor House. This time we were able to enjoy the garden in springtime. The proximity to both the beach and the excellent village shop was ideal. The cafe is friendly and welcoming, serving lovely coffee. The house is ideal for families and our three generations enjoyed spending time there together. It’s comfortable, well equipped and spacious....

The care taken to provide for guests is astonishing - from local guidebooks to rock hammers (for fossil hunting) to milk in the fridge and flowers on the table when we arrived. A huge amount of care (and effort) has been taken to make a stay here feel like a holiday from the moment you first step inside. ...

You won't be disappointed when you book The Old Manor House. It is wonderfully located in the village and convenient for getting about the area which has much to enjoy. It truly was like a home from home and extremely well-equipped. Ours was a grown up family holiday and we found we had the space to be apart but importantly, to come together too. Over a game of pool, around the kitchen table, breakfast on the patio and in various areas of the beautiful garden. The garden was an added pleasure we hadn't anticipated, there was more of it than we thought. With four cars, we had been concerned about the parking aspect. However, we always found a free space if not outside, then very close. ...

This is such a lovely house to stay in, spacious for our party of 9 and two dogs. The garden is very well kept and we enjoyed playing croquet with the provided set, thank you for all the various beach toys,. The beds were comfy with good linen, all well appointed rooms. The kitchen was a great place to gather, full size table for everyone. The pool (snooker) room was great for our teenagers and indeed all the family. The wet room was wonderful for post sea activities and hanging wet suits to dry. Great position with very well stocked local shop a couple of minutes away, the pubs, the beach and country walks all on the doorstep. Would very happily return! ...

This sprawling Manor House and garden has all the space for a larger family or group of friends in a central location in Charmouth. It is well equipped for larger groups (two dishwashers!), accommodating sunny days on the beach or rainy days requiring indoor entertainment (note the lovely pool table, which filled our evenings with competitive laughter). As a professional geologist, having the World Class Jurassic Coast mere metres from the doorstep is a privilege, and one the whole family enjoyed most days as we looked for hidden treasures on the beach. The house has a deep historical past, and may be on local historical trails as you wonder why passers-by are stalling at the gate. There are well-stocked shops within short walking distance and two pubs, both of which we tried (and can recommend for their friendly welcome). The nearby takeaway was excellent for evenings where cooking or going out proved to be a chore - the fish and chips were really delicious. We had one large dog with us, who enjoyed the enclosed garden. The garden is well-maintained by some friendly gardeners, who left some food for a visiting young hedgehog, which we saw most evenings. The internet was not working for the initial part of our stay (which caused a little concern given some work commitments). However, Dawn the house keeper, was preemptive in letting us know and took quick action to resolve (it was an issue at BT’s end and not really an issue with the property). For larger parties (and the house is priced for such) with multiple vehicles, I can imagine that parking could be an issue. By the evening there can be a competition with well-deserving locals for remaining parking spaces (and we only had one vehicle). There are nearby car parks but, as you can imagine, these are priced for daytime beach parking by summer visitors. If parking is not an issue, then the Old Manor House is a beautiful house in which to spend some quality time with friends and family, on the doorstep of the Jurassic Coast. (Try: The Anchor at Seatown - beautiful food; The Lyme Regis Brewery - splendid craft beer)....
