Very quiet location, stunning views and plenty places to visit. Would recommend Forde Abbey well worth a visit.

“Excellent Accomodation & Great Location”
Reviewed 8 November 2017 for a stay in October 2017

We had a very comfortable stay at the Annexe. The furnishings are of a high standard and the bed very comfortable. The lighting was excellent . The damp problems mentioned by a previous reviewer had been sorted prior to our arrival and there was no repetition. The central heating worked well although we hardly needed it as the accommodation was so warm and the weather kind despite it being October. We even got to have tea in the sunshine on the secret terrace garden with views all the way to the coast. The location is excellent with Bridport, Lyme Regis & Axminster close by and the walk up to Hardown Hill literally on the doorstep. Golden Cap – one of our favourite walks and the highest point on the South Coast – is within 2 miles. If you intend cooking at the annexe be aware there is not a conventional cooker/oven rather a microwave/combi oven and a table top 2 ring hot plate – despite this we managed to eat well with excellent supermarket ready meals from the Waitrose & Morrisons in Bridport. Also no CD player so if you like music I suggest you bring your own. Overall excellent – so good in fact we have re-booked for next year !

“Damp, with mold”
Reviewed 2 October 2017 for a stay in September 2017

I am sorry to say that the annex didn't live up to expectations. Inside was damp, musty smell. Damp patches in corners of walls, around Windows. And even mold in the cupboard, which we only discovered after putting the lights on after the 4th day, so all we put in it was taken out and cleaned off, and said cupboard not used again.
Obviously the damp a problem for a while. The heating only came on once, we had no control of the radiators, so months with no airing or heating in the annex will only contribute to the damp.
I don't like writing negative comments, but I can't really say anything else.
The area itself was lovely, but as for the accommodation, it was what it was. Sorry.

Thank you for taking the time to review our property.

We value the opinions of our guests and we sincerely apologise that there were issues of cold and damp whilst you stayed. Had I been aware of the issues during your stay I would have addressed them immediately so we could find a solution and rectify the issues. Providing our guests with the best possible hospitality has and always will be our main focus.

As soon as we were aware of the problems we took immediate action. Our builder came out to assess the situation as we had not had issues with damp before, which is visible from our past reviews.

The builder found no major problems. He felt that it was due to excess condensation caused by a lack of ventilation, although he is unsure why it would suddenly occur. He immediately installed two new ventilation shafts into the annexe one on the front wall and one on the rear in order to create a better air flow through the building. We are also fitting a new extractor fan in the shower room which will automatically go on when you switch on the light on to ensure that it is always properly ventilated whilst guests are showering.

With regards to the mould in the cupboard I can only apologise once again. I was not available to carry out your checkin and it is apparent that the cupboard had not been thoroughly checked prior to your arrival which would have flagged up condensation issues. Once again I can assure you than in the future all cupboards will be throughly checked.

With regards to the cold the heating is controlled in the main property and during September we put it on as and when at the request of the guests. My sincere apologies that you were obviously not made aware of that on your arrival. We now realise that this is not ideal so we will ensure that the heating is set to turn on automatically whenever the temperature falls below a certain level from the beginning of September through to spring, ensuring that our guests are always warm. This has also been set to 3 times a day morning, midday and evening.

We appreciate that sometimes things go wrong, but should we make a mistake, we would always try to rectify it during the guests stay, to ensure that they have a wonderful time and leave us feeling happy and relaxed.

Should you wish at any time to return to West Dorset then do please consider us again as we would love the opportunity to put things right.

“Togetherness”
Reviewed 15 September 2017 for a stay in October 2016

We had a wonderful break last October. We live on a farm where there is always too much to be done and neither of us are spring chickens, so a getaway every so often is imperative! We really reconnected and spent loads of time talking and walking; something that gets brushed aside at home. We told Louise we'd definitely be back this year, but sadly we are both suffering with mobility problems - however we are very keen to go next year, health permitting. Can't wait to see how work's gone on the garden and the old cottage above. Also, really impressed how dog friendly Bridport is, (even though we left our lot at home!)

“A lovely place to stay for both humans and dogs!”
Reviewed 26 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

The owners were very friendly and gave us an extremely warm welcome when we arrived (and were kind enough to leave a bottle of wine waiting in the fridge!)

The annexe itself was very clean and tidy and had a nice airy feel to it. It was well stocked with all the crockery, cuttlery etc that you will likely require. The surrounding countryside is very beautiful, and immediately behind the property are miles of National Trust tracks and paths to explore; you don't even need to step on tarmac to get there - perfect for dog walking!

Further afield there are lots of beaches to discover. It's a bit of a mixed bag as to whether or not dogs are allowed on them but we didn't have any real issues with finding somewhere to paddle and fossil hunt.

Being close (but not too close!) to the A35 makes this a great place from which to explore wider Dorset and Devon.
