Our 17th century farmhouse has been completely refurbished and stylishly decorated and makes the perfect place for a luxury family holiday or group of 10 guests. Three large bedrooms plus a fourth children's TV room with a double sofa bed provides comfortable sleeping accommodation for everyone. With its blend of a quiet location, alongside the beautiful woods of Monkton Wyld but within three miles of Lyme Regis and Charmouth and the famous Jurassic Coastline, you are never short of things to do. Walk among the bluebells and foxgloves of the adjoining woods and, for the energetic, walk to either Lyme or Charmouth-downhill all the way- along local byways and footpaths. We always suggest the local bus back! Local villages and towns still retain their individuality with meandering streets and great country pubs tucked away down country lanes.

The farmhouse combines quality and style with luxury furnishings and those little comforting touches. Bookshelves, many family pictures, dried flowers and personal touches make the farmhouse something more than just a "holiday base".

The double French doors from the lounge open onto a large south facing patio with BBQ, outdoor furniture and a great space for enjoying summer evenings. This garden is enclosed which makes a lovely space for children to play. Other lawns and plenty of parking make life easy!

Unlimited hot water available to all 3 bedrooms. Two woodburning stoves and full central heating throughout means whatever the weather you can be warm and cosy.

The beach between Charmouth and Lyme is sandy and safe. The local walks are amazing and the whole area is full of places to see and things to do- something for all the family. The area can offer tennis, swimming pools, golf courses, horse riding, children's adventure centres, leisure centres as well as arts, craft and antique centres and last but not least our wonderful local cinema, theatre and museums.

Shopping (not all high street chain stores) restaurants, houses and gardens make sure you are never left wondering what to do but alternatively, why not simply sit, relax and enjoy the gardens and atmosphere that is Monkton Wyld Farmhouse. For further information visit:

Monkton Wyld Farmhouse is ideally located being just three miles from Lyme Regis and this beautiful Charmouth Beach with Golden Cap (the highest point on the south coast) in the background.

The farmhouse has its own long drive with our fields to one side and Monkton Wyld Woods on the other side.

From the M5 at Junction 25 travel through Chard to Axminster. Take the A35 East towards Charmouth. Continue on the A35 past the Hunters Lodge pub and after half a mile cross the Dorset County Boundary sign and take the next left which is an unmarked lane. We always ask our guests to call and collect the key from the office which is 150 yards on the left down this lane. We will always have someone to show you access to the farmhouse and take you around our house and answer any questions.

From Charmouth take the A35 West towards Axminster. After approximately 2 miles there is a turning right to Monkton Wyld. DO NOT GO DOWN HERE. Stay on the A35 for a further half mile and then turn Right (Inland) signposted to Marshwood. You are now on the lane as above.
