Our family stayed at Downview Farm whilst celebrating our emerald wedding anniversary. The beautiful accommodation and facilities suited the various ages of the party very well indeed and we had a wonderful holiday.
We also took advantage of the outside catering and pampering services on offer and can heartily recommend the Spoilt Rotten girls who gave 10 members of our party 1/2 hour massages. Exhausting for them, brilliant for us. Also the Lam chinese caterers cooked us the best Chinese meal we had ever eaten - all in the convenience of our holiday home.
Try it, you won't be disappointed.

We stayed here on June 22nd for my friend’s hen weekend. I thought I would write a review as I was so worried after reading some of the other people’s comments. We had a really fabulous weekend and I would recommend this cottage 100%. We arrived too early and the house was still being cleaned so they took in our food shopping and put it away in the fridge for us so it did not defrost. When we got into the house we paid our deposit and the very nice man showed us how everything worked. We were all really impressed it was beautifully decorated and very clean each room was really well thought out. Every appliance we used worked, the pool was warm, the hot tub perfect and showers really powerful. We were left alone to enjoy the house all weekend and did not see the owners once. I only text them to ask where we should leave our rubbish and they text me back straight away. If there was a problem we could have got hold of them very easily. I was a bit worried when we were told not to make loud noise outside after 10.30pm as it was a hen night and us girls can get a bit loud, but we sat outside talking just not shouting and this was not a problem. When we left we striped the beds , made sure the dishwasher was on and left our rubbish where we were told to. We got our full deposit back. I think if you respect the house then there is nothing to worry about. A great weekend was has by all.

Bad points , mobile phone service not very good. There could be a few more tv channels oh and it should be near a beach lol :-) ! x

We travelled to Dorset with friends to stay in Downview Farm and have to say we all had the most wonderful week. The manager, Lucy, couldn't have been more efficient and helpful from the booking procedure to our arrival at the property. She was very informative about local attractions and places to visit including amazing beaches and the Jurassic coast.

The attractive house itself was spotlessly clean with comfy beds and every piece of equipment you could wish for. We all slept like logs. The pool was like a warm bath and we spent hours in it and the hot tub relaxing. We left feeling refreshed and can't wait to go back.

I just had to write about the wonderful break that our group has had at Downview. We were really worried after reading the other reviews but i cannot believe it was the same place. We arrived late as traffic was bad and as we had phoned ahead we were told our food shopping had arrived and been sorted out for us! Wow , never expected that.
The rooms were spotless and beautifully decorated, how i wish i could live there all year round. Swimming pool and hot tub amazing,so relaxing. We took our bikes with us and explored the local area which was great fun and all the locals in the village pub were very entertaining!!! We have already booked for later in the year as i wanted somewhere gorgeous to spend my birthday and at Downview i found it. We have also booked he next door property as so many of my friends want tocome.
Thank you to everyone who made our break so special.
