“Great family venue”
Reviewed 8 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Just back from a week at Moorbath Farmhouse with our 6 children and 8 grandchildren celebrating our 70ths. What a great venue! Superb facilities (the grandchildren would happily have lived in the pool - & mid-night skittles & table-tennis kept the mums & dads happy). Lots of living space allowing for all 16 of us to be together, or to separate into 3 - 4 different groups. A beautiful dining room with magnificent table seating all 16 of us in comfort. Well equipped kitchen with 2 dishwashers, 2 fridges, freezer & enough crockery, cutlery & cooking equipment to never run out. Only downside was a lack of hanging & drawer space in some of the bedrooms - but a small price to pay for otherwise excellent & spacious rooms. Surroundings also good with lovely cliff-top walks & sandy beach at Lyme Regis a twenty-minute drive. We'd certainly go back.

“Heaven - Perfect for Large Groups of Any Age”
Reviewed 18 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

We were a party of 18/20 who stayed at Moorbath over a sunny weekend in November. We are school friends celebrating our 50th birthdays this year - our party also included 6 teenagers and 1 child. We all adored Moorbath - it's a real home from home - Lovely wood burners, cosy rooms and comfortable beds. The main farmhouse is really well equipped with a big farmhouse kitchen and wonderful dining room which accommodated all of us to eat. The barn has 2 newly converted bedrooms and, best of all, an indoor heated pool. There are hot power showers in the house and barn plus a snooker table, table tennis and skittle alley, also in the barn. Outside we had a BBQ breakfast in the sun on the large BBQ provided on the stone terrace - yes it was November! The only thing that could possible improve Moorbath would be to update the downstairs shower room and add an extra toilet downstairs - maybe in the utility area? But don't delay - get booking!

“Perfect for an all age holiday.”
Reviewed 17 November 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Moorbath Farmhouse was idyllic for our family celebration week (Granny's 70th). We were lucky with the weather but there was plenty to occupy the young had it been wet. We loved the 'shabby chic' reception rooms - comfy and spacious but we didn't feel on edge with the tinies running around.

“Ideal!”
Reviewed 18 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

My husband and I were looking for a rental property that would be suitable to hold a joint 60th birthday weekend celebration with family and friends. We arrived at the farmhouse on Friday afternoon, Sainsbury's delivery arrived on time and we got organised before our guests arrived. Main house bedrooms all looked inviting - mainly twin bedded which I guess is more versatile. The annex was ideal for the overspill. Kitchen facilities superb - plenty of crockery, cutlery, etc. - the quality of both being high for a holiday home. We had brought extra kitchen equipment just in case but not needed - very well equipped. For 16 there was certainly enough fridge and freezer space and having 2 dishwashers was a godsend. Both living rooms would have fitted us all in although the weather was so good we were mainly outside. As a group we made excellent use of the extra facilities - swimming pool, pool table, table tennis and skittles and it was only a short drive to the beach at Eype. The garden was large and glorious with a bonus of having herbs for cooking and Pimms! The sound of birds was quite stunning and the overall peacefulness fabulous. We had our dog with us and although there were distractions like chickens and horses nearby these were never a problem although it was handy having a gate at the bottom of the parking area that we could close to deter him possibly wandering. If you are barbecuing for a large number you may wish to bring a second one; we did. The supplied one is large but not really large enough for 16 particularly if you're trying to keep vegetarian options separate. One negative was that the barbecue had not been emptied and cleaned and having to do this before we could use it was irritating. A sun umbrella would also have been useful for those who cannot sit in the sun. In fairness there may have been one and we just didn't find it!

Overall we were delighted with our choice and without exception our group thought it a wonderful place to hold a get together.
