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 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 two cosy wood-burners providing extra warmth in any season. Upstairs, the double bedroom boasts a brass bed, and the second bedroom can be set up as a single or a twin.
As well as the safely enclosed gardens around the lodge which are great for young children and four legged friends, the beautiful gardens of The Manor Farm are right next to it for you to enjoy. You are also invited to use the tennis court and see the sheep, chickens, ducks and cows that are at home here too. There are also beautiful walks and historic places of interest right on the doorstep without you having to take the car. Join the Parrett Trail by just walking down the track that passes the cottage. A bit further afield, this part of south Somerset has a wealth of historic houses to visit such as Montacute, Lytes Carey and Barrington Court and ancient monuments such as the Cadbury Iron Age hill fort. Ham Hill is another nearby hill fort, with the bonus of a great pub at the top! A visit to the Jurassic Coast is a must and it is a very easy drive through historic Beaminster – you must stop off for a coffee and a delicious home-baked pastry in Le Vieux Four patisserie just off the square – via the market town of Bridport to West Bay or along to Lyme Regis. Returning home after a day out exploring, Manor Farm Lodge is a cosy base for your holiday and a real home-from-home. Although in the heart of the village, this traditional cottage, with its newly installed triple-glazing, is a peaceful place to switch off and unwind.
