“Best Birthday weekend!!”
Reviewed 8 May 2014 for a stay in April 2014

person found this review helpful

Me and my boyfriend decided to book a long weekend away for my birthday, and I found this little gem! I'm so glad I booked. When we arrived we were greeted by the lovely Rosemary, she showed us around and introduced us to their cockerels and their chicks, this was quite an experience! It was sunny so we popped down to the beach, which was beautiful, everyone seemed really upbeat and friendly. We got back to have a glass of prosecco (thanks for this, and the rest of the treats!) on the roof terrace. Unfortunately the rest of the weekend was a bit wet but we still made the most of it. The shower is absolutely gorgeous, the bed was so comfy (some of the best night's sleep I've had!) and the roost is well equipped with DVDs, a stereo with Ipod dock, board games (we loved Trivial Pursuit!). Can't wait to come back in the summer! Thanks for a pleasant stay!

“Perfect for a weekend get away”
Reviewed 4 March 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Little Roost was perfect for a sanity restoring weekend break, it had everything we needed; warm and cosy, well laid out and well stocked with the essentials. A welcome pack, including wine and flowers, were a lovely touch.

The cottage is in a good location for exploring the local area. Lyme Regis is easily accessible by foot, but you'll need walking boots (and if venturing out after dark a torch is essential).

Would recommend Amid Giants and Idols for coffee (made by a proper coffee aficionado) and The Town Mill Supper Club for dinner. Also Herbies on the front do cracking chips!

“Perfect Intimacy in beautiful setting inside and out”
Reviewed 6 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Everything about look of the small but perfectly achieved nest speaks of the care, kindliness and hospitality of the owners, Rosemary and Duncan, who have put The Little Roost together, oak, stone and soft fittings. One of those places that feels like home (at least the one you wished you had) the moment you walk in. Clean, bright, fresh - everything ready for a cup of tea, bed just want to sink into and small treats for the eye wherever you look. As for the outdoors - right on the start of the most gorgeous walk down into Lyme or alternatively a short morning woodland stroll to the shop and fabulous restaurants and quaffing opportunities all within walking distance. This was my partner and stepson and my first trip to Dorset or should that be East Devon? - and can't wait to come back and explore some more and laze around on the altogether mediterranean roof terrace surrounded by a burgeoning and butterfly -filled garden. The Little Roost is a Little Gem. Huge thanks.
