You walk straight into the bedroom (this is completely wheelchair friendly) with antique furniture and comfy double bed. Wide doors lead to the bathroom with its walk-in shower and fluffy towels. Nessie bakes you a cake and for the morning will leave you a hamper of croissants, butter and local jam, but if you fancy something bigger it’s a 20-minute walk to Maiden Newton for a full English. She’s also happy to cook you dinner if you like – just ask in advance.
Watch TV or read a book in the tiny little sitting room (converted from a dressing room), sit on your own south-facing patio with a table and chairs, wander the garden, try your hand on the tennis court (bring your own raquets and balls).
You’re near the Frome Valley Trail for walking and cycling, or join the Wessex Way. The nearest beach is West Bexington, a 20-minute drive, Bridport has a fabulous Saturday market.
