Excellent cottage in a lovely location.It had everything you could wish for in the property and a really nice welcome basket of local produce for our first breakfast.The hosts Yvonne and graham were nice and very helpful.The local pub,the hare and hounds was a short walk up the lane,and served good food and some nice ales.The log burner was a bonus but was needed because the under floor heating was not great in the mornings and evenings in the main room downstairs.Having said that we will return if Yvonne will have us.
We have had a wonderful break at the Annex. The house was very clean, modern and well appointed with comfy beds. ( there was a yummy welcome basket for an added treat with the most delicious eggs from Yvonne's chickens) Yvonne and her husband couldn't have been friendlier and made us feel very welcome, like a home from home. We have 2 children (6 yr old and 7 month old) and not having to bring travel cots, stair gates, toys and a travel highchair made our time away much easier. We all enjoyed the peace, quiet and animals at the Annex. Waking up and being able to see sheep out of your window is amazing as is going to feed the chickens and pigs! It wasn't just our 6 year old who was thrilled to bits at finding a chicken egg!
The area is lovely and you are very central to lots of lovely places. We love fossil hunting in Lyme and crabbing in West Bay!
Thank you for a wonderful stay, we will see you next year :)
This place was absolutely perfect. Wonderful views. Very peaceful surroundings and excellent hosts. We'll be back!
A huge thank you to the owners of this beautiful property. We received a warm welcome and hospitality hamper filled with local produce. The Annexe was clean, well equipped and located in a beautiful location. We enjoyed lazy mornings pottering around the Annexe and the kids loved seeing the chickens, ram and friendly cat. We all truly relaxed!
I would highly recommend the Annexe whether it's for a short break or longer. We will certainly be visiting again.
Just returned from a lovely week staying at Springfield House. Graham and Yvonne were great hosts and even baby sat for us one night so that we could go to the local pub for dinner for some adult only time (highly recommend the Half Moon).
The annex is ideally located to explore Dorset and was lovely and peaceful to return to after a busy day exploring.
The garden was beautiful and we ate outside in the evening.
Nothing was too much trouble and a second cot and highchair were sourced (as we have twins) at no extra cost.
I have already recommended to others.
we had four wonderful days at Springfield Annexe , every thing was just perfect, comfortable beautiful, spotlessly clean and in a stunning location. Yvonne and Graham are the perfect hosts and have thought of everything you need for a lovely holiday right down to the smallest detail. We were made to feel so welcome from the moment we arrived with a great welcome pack with all you need and more for your first breakfast including fresh free range eggs from their own hens.. we brought a dozen home ! . Springfield is in a fabulous spot , great for getting out and about for walks and trips around dorset. On Yvonnes recommendation we had a gorgeous meal at the 'Half Moon at Melplesh' for my birthday we also walked up the lane to the Hare & Hounds which has stunning views from the beer garden .We look forward to returning for a second visit next year .

I apologize for not writing this before.My husband and I had a wonderful stay at Springfield heaven. The property was warm and comfortable and we had everything we needed for a winter break. We liked having a wood burning stove and throughout there were little extras which made the property special like finding all we needed for breakfast in the fridge. The views over the lake to the fields beyond were very atmospheric. The owners made us very welcome and the property was spotlessly clean and contained everything we needed for a home from home. There are many places worth visiting in the area including Bridport and Lyme Regis and wonderful walks along the coastal footpaths. I can highly recommend this property for any time of year and would certainly like to return in the future.
