We drove through the gate down a long drive lined with beautiful daffodils, we parked up and had a warm welcome from Stephen and Brenda.

The farm house stood on a cobbled stable yard with all the horses looking over the door, it was perfect.

Inside was truely fabulous, oak beams, a fantastic family kitchen, fully equipt as we cooked nearly every morning and evening on an Aga which was great fun.

The lounge was huge with comfortable leather sofas and a wood burner, which heated the whole house.

The bedrooms were large and plenty of room for us.

The location was easy reach of Lyme regis, and most other popular attractions no longer than 45 minutes drive.

At night the stars looked amazing and you could hear nothing other than horses munching hay.

Colmer farmhouse made our family holiday magical, the children opening the curtains to horses wandering around the yard outside. Simply perfect.

“Excellent large accommodation in a peaceful location”

Beautiful cottage with Large accommodation, the photos advertised doesn't do the size justice, in a peaceful location. Great for families and a group of friends with easy access to coastal spots. Owners were really helpful with information on nearby pubs and restaurants. We only stayed two nights but thoroughly enjoyed it, I would return and recommend to others.

I can highly recommend Colmer Farmhouse.

It is in a very quiet location, in rolling countryside, less than 30minutes drive from the coast.

The house is amply spacious; furnishing is comfortable and the atmosphere is warm and friendly. The building is fascinating and ancient, dating from the 15th century. Huge solid beams and stone floors. Grand fireplaces in the lounge (with a woodburner) and kitchen (with an aga). In comparison to the usual modern English house design where everything is minimal size, this farmhouse is designed at "full scale"; some of the doors are about a third wider than modern doors and the floor space of the master bedroom could easily fit more than two modern bedrooms put together and there's not just one dining table but two.

We very much enjoyed our stay and felt much at home in Colmer Farmhouse. After our days out at the coast it was a pleasure to come home to this comfortable space. This grand house actually added an extra dimension to our stay.

The owners live just five minutes walk away, are straightforward and welcoming and very nice people.

[I think wifi might be accessible via a bt hub]

We have just returned from a weekend break at the Colmer Farmhouse and loved every moment of our stay.

Brenda and Stephen were so welcoming and even had the wood burner fully fuelled and roaring when we arrived.

The peace and tranquility that we had over the weekend was perfect for a romantic break.

Can't wait to return later in the yearM
