“Huge and atmospheric accomodation that was perfect for all”
Reviewed 15 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We were a large part of 4 families and we all came away having had an amazing time (even though we were there for the storms). The place is huge and so atmospheric that we had endless fun playing hide and seek with the kids on the rainy days. The enclosed courtyard style garden is very large and was great for playing around with the kids when the sun did come out. The swimming pool is amazing and is definitely one of the highlights of the farmhouse outbuildings but probably best of all was the massive table and inglenook fireplace which was great with a roaring log fire each evening. Ed and Connie were very helpful and supportive where required and made the stay even more enjoyable.
The area is tranquil and the Watchhouse Cafe in Westbay is one of the best cafes I have ever been to with a delicious innovative bakery attached.

“Beautiful!”
Reviewed 11 September 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We stayed at Moorbath for my Mum's 60th birthday so our party ranged in age from 11 months to 87 years! There was definitely something for everyone. The setting is stunning and with the beautiful weather it felt like (and looked like) we were in the South of France! There is plenty of space both in terms of large bedrooms and downstairs living space that we weren't on top of each other. The kitchen was very well equip with 2 huge fridges, very large freezer, 2 dishwashers and all sorts of useful extras like weighing scales etc. Very unusual for a holiday rental! The dining room was perfect for large celebratory dinners and the open fires would be fantastic in winter. Bedrooms are bright, lovely and nicely decorated. Linen is all spotless and white with lovely comfortable beds and duvets so very inviting! The whole house was very clean and welcoming. Everything had been thought of and lots of care obviously goes in to everything from Ed and Connie. It's not flash, but very homey. The swimming pool, skittles alley, table tennis and pool table were all a brilliant bonus and we had lots of fun turning things competitive!
The area is beautiful and great to explore. Bridport has a lovely market and the fresh seafood around is wonderful. It's easy to have a lovely holiday or party at Moorbath and we hope to return!

“Most Amazing House for family Christmas get together.”
Reviewed 14 January 2013 for a stay in December 2012

Moorbath farmhouse is the perfect rental accommodation- Bright and comfortable, brilliantly equipped (TVs, sky, two dishwashers, enormous fridges, masses of kitchenware etc etc), it has the most excellent facilities (swimming pool, table tennis, pool table, large garden etc ) Two large sitting rooms and wood-burners throughout including the amazing dinning room. The bedrooms and bathrooms are beautifully decorated with comfortable beds and wonderful sheets. It is in an idyllic location, with masses to do locally if you can get anyone to actually leave the house. We had the most wonderful christmas. Thank you Moorbath.
