Manor Farm Lodge is the ideal base for exploring the fascinating area around the Somerset/Dorset border, and is within easy reach of the stunning Jurassic Coast at Lyme Regis. This beautifully presented Grade II listed period Victorian gatehouse is in the heart of the pretty, quintessentially English village of North Perrott – complete with pub and farm shop with cafe (both with free WiFi), cricket ground and 15th Century church. Set in its own enclosed walled garden, with a delightful hedge archway into the stunning gardens of the original manor house, this comfortable cottage has a cosy wood-burning stove in the sitting-room and a second ornamental one in the dining-room. Upstairs, the double bedroom boasts a brass bed, and the second bedroom can be set up as a single or a twin to suit guests.
The Lodge is a listed period property set within a walled and fenced cottage garden providing a safe enclosure for pets and children. Guests are also welcome to sit and relax in the adjoining formal gardens of the Manor Farm. You are invited to use the tennis court (available from the 1st April to the 1st October) and to meet the pet sheep and other farm animals.
Lying within the warm-coloured hamstone village there is an abundance of historical sites to visit such as Montacute, Lytes Carey, the Roman Hill Fort of Ham Hill, the Roman city of Bath, the medieval city of Wells and the famous Glastonbury Tor. For the garden enthusiast there are the monastic Forde Abbey, East Lambrook and Tintinhull gardens. The bustling market town of Bridport offers art and antique lovers the opportunity to explore and Crewkerne is a hub for antiques treasures. The World Heritage Jurassic Coastline provides the seaside experience with fossil hunting opportunities at Lyme Regis and Charmouth bays.
The Lodge is a cosy base offering a traditional holiday with modern home comforts. There are beautiful walks for nature lovers right on the doorstep without having to take your car. Join the Parrett Trail or explore the apple orchards by just walking along the track that passes the front door.
