We chose this hotel as it is near River Cottage HQ where we were dining on our first evening in the area. It is a lovely house, quiet, and surrounded by fields. The rooms are tastefully furnished, the proprietors are friendly and helpful too - it is worth getting them to book taxis as they know the local cabbies. Breakfast...

My wife and I stayed at this gem of a hotel for just one night in November this year and immediate wished we were staying longer. We could not have asked for a warmer welcome from our hosts, Neil and Rosemarie(and their fabulous great dane puppy) and were made to feel at home immediately. Neil also sorted us out with...

Just got back from a lovely stay at the Dower House Hotel. We stayed in the Cobb suite - a charming annex that was great for us as we had a little 17 month old with us. Oh... and it had three greatest radiators I've ever seen! Overall a great hotel, really well looked after by the very helpful team,...

This was a revisit for my husband as he stayed here as a schoolboy when it was the headmaster's house for All Hallows' School. Naturally a huge change! Neil and Rosemarie were superb hosts firstly and brought an air of comfort and relaxation. Breakfasts were lovely. We had an excellent dinner the second evening. We stayed in the Cobb Suite,...

We wish we could have stayed longer! From the very warm welcome, a fantastic room (with 4 poster bed) through to the delicious breakfast everything was perfect. The location between Lyme Regis and Sidmouth is good too.

Room was neat and tidy. staff friendly and welcoming. Amenities were great. Road was a bit noisy at peak times as we were on the front but not unexpected as just off the main road so not a problem for us. Was surprised at the lack of depth to the breakfast and for such an establishment expected there to be...

My husband booked the most beautiful room for a surprise stay at the Dower House. It was really all you could possibly ask. An ENORMOUS and extremely comfy bed with fabulous sheets. My idea of heaven! I have never had a bath in the bedroom and thought, though it looked lovely, it would be uncomfortable. In fact it was the...
