“Fantastic holiday ”
Reviewed 12 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We recently stayed here and had a wonderful time! The house is beautifully decorated and has many lovely features. The swimming pool was large with a great 'deep end' clean and warm. The hot tub was huge and simple to use. We loved the open kitchen and spent a lot of time around the big table laughing and eating ! The dining room gave us a lovely setting for a very special meal! We loved the living room and how beautifully decorated it was! Many games of pool were played in the games room ! The bedrooms are gorgeous and each one finished in a different style. The grounds are gorgeous and we enjoyed flying kites and having a mini sports day with the kids ! 40 mins from Weymouth beach and a trip to monkey world made a couple of days out - but the downview was so lovely we didn't feel the need venture out more than that ! We took full advantage of the washing machine and tumble and always had nice dry towels ! Overall we loved our family holiday and the kids were in their element ! Many special memories made ! Thank you !
A swift return of our full deposit was much appreciated and was the cherry on a fantastic holiday cake ! Highly recommend!

“Beautiful house ”
Reviewed 9 July 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We booked Downview Farm for my best friends weekend in mid June. There was 16 of us ladies who stayed and all had a fantastic time. The house is truly beautiful with fantastic facilities such as the grounds, swimming pool, hot tub, although we did feel the hot tub would be better situated in the main garden rather than round the back.

The village which downview is located in is so beautiful. We enjoyed a walk along to the crown pub for lunch and drinks one day and it was lovely looking at all the cottages along the way.

Lucy was very helpful in the lead up to our stay and very welcoming when she met us upon arrival.

All our ladies thoroughly enjoyed a weekend of relaxation (we also used some of the recommended suppliers on the downview restaurant such as the Chinese restaurant who came and catered for us, the beauty ladies who came and done treatments for us all and the cocktail makers all of whom were fantastic!!

Overall a beautiful, relaxing stay but not for you if you are looking for something loud and lively.

We are so glad you lovely ladies enjoyed your stay with us.
We decided to move the hot-Tub to the back garden because the noise from the Tub echoes round the Village as we are in a valley .
The Back garden is perfect its nearer the pool and the house absorbs the noise .
We would love to see you all again in the future .
Thank youso much for a Lovely review .

“perfect”
Reviewed 7 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

it was the perfect setting for our wedding anniversary celebrations, the accommodation was perfect for our party of 5 couples.
The pool and hot tub were fantastic, the pool table got a lot of use, the kitchen area was a very sociable space,
The setting is beautiful and local shops and pubs in Blandford are a short drive away.
we all agreed it was a complete success

“An unexpected delight”
Reviewed 17 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Beautifully decorated warm and friendly from the minute you walk into the lovely large kitchen you will feel relaxed and welcome. (The hot cross buns on our arrival were a lovely thought) We had a fantastic time in both the pool and hot tub, it was the perfect venue for our large family get together. We popped into Branford approx 15 min drive away. Where we had the choice of two large well known supermarkets as well as lots of smaller shops. We enjoyed Sunday lunch at the Botney Bay pub again only a short drive. Thank you Lucy and Matt for making us feel so welcome
