WE ARE A GROUP OF 12 FRIENDS WITH B&B AND HOLIDAY COTTAGE ACCOMMODATION AND A WEALTH OF LOCAL KNOWLEDGE

In a six mile radius, our individual properties are located near England’s only natural World Heritage Site on the Jurassic Coast, which is close to Lyme Regis, Bridport, West Bay, Burton Bradstock and inland to the rolling Downs above Beaminster.
Each place is very different and between us we can offer peaceful hideaways, easy access to the sea, working farms, fishing lakes on site and stunning views from your window. Where possible we use our own or locally grown produce. The area is ideal for walking, from leisurely strolls to more challenging cross-country hiking. The ever-changing scenery never fails to delight whatever time of year you visit.
