    • “Beautiful property with good facilities which was ideal for large family get together. Lovely settling with local walks, pub within easy walk and beach a short drive away.”

    Mrs Edgcumbe, Saltash, November 2018

    • “Really lovely Holiday home. Very well equipped and thought out. Ideal for a big family gathering.”

    Mrs Gowers, BILLINGSHURST, November 2018

    • “Great facilities for 12. Perfect location to explore the varied coastline. Kitchen, utility and two lounges worked well. Beds a little hard. Mattress toppers would be perfect.”

    Mrs Sinclair, Cranbrook, October 2018

    • “This is an excellent property for a large family gathering. There is plenty of room for everyone. The area has lots to offer and the chance to see the sheep and pigs close up was great for smaller children.”

    Mrs Lemon, ABINGDON, September 2018

    • “One J cloth and 3 t-towels are not sufficient.”

    Mrs O'Donohoe, MELKSHAM, August 2018

    • “Spacious well planned accommodation in a beautiful peaceful area. Plenty of interesting places to visit.”

    Mrs Foster, NEWPORT, July 2018

    • “Very friendly and helpful owners. We enjoyed a lovely week at Marles Farmhouse. Perfect house, garden, land for a family holiday. Total silent area. Hope to come back som time.”

    Mr Laessoe, July 2018

    • “My family really did feel this was the perfect getaway and it delivered on location, we really loved seeing the wildlife and this was a highlight of our time there - even the field mouse in the kitchen was very cute!!! We relaxed in the garden a lot of the time whilst there and enjoyed some wonderful and quality family time which was the aim of staying here. We were a little shocked when the farmer next door appeared in our garden to get water practically on a daily basis from the tap under the utility room window, but we got to know and expect him over our time there. The place was clean and had everything you could wish for to enjoy a home from home environment. We did notice there seemed to be a lack of towels in the house on our arrival, and then spotted that the cleaner had forgotten to empty a laundry basket full of dirty towels in one of the bathrooms that we had not used (on our check out day!!!!), this was not an issue for us we simply washed the few we had been provided with. Overall we would come back to Marles Farmhouse and we would recommend to our friends. Thank you.”

    Mrs Talbot Price, 5153, June 2018

    • “Apart from problems with water from well over first couple of days, the owners did make sure it was fixed quickly and efficiently, this farmhouse is amazing, very well equipped with nice personal touches. Would recommend for large groups. Brilliant week for all of us.”

    Mr Partridge, CHIPPING NORTON, May 2018

    • “Our second visit to Marles Farmhouse and we love the house and area, weather was wonderful during our week and highly recommend The Hive Beach Cafe at Burton Bradstock & its sister cafe The Watch House Cafe at West Bay, great seafood. Only a small bottle recycling container available for the size of the property, nearest glass recycling is near West Bay, perhaps we drink too much!!!”

    Mr Betts, ST. ALBANS, May 2018

Regional Information

SALWAYASH Bridport 4.5 miles. The attractive market town of Bridport grew up around the River Brit, and was shaped by its extensive history of rope and net making. The long, wide streets and alleyways between the houses were once where the flax strands were twisted into rope, while today those streets are filled with an interesting variety of shops, restaurants and inns. Bridport’s market is regularly featured on the River Cottage TV programme. 2 miles south of Bridport is the dramatic Jurassic coast at West Bay, now a World Heritage Site, home to the backdrop for TV's Harbour Lights and the coastal setting for popular Broadchurch, whilst the picturesque resort of Lyme Regis is within 10 miles. A superb base for exploring wonderful West Dorset.
