Set in a beautiful Victorian private country estate of 350 acres of farmland, parkland and woodland on the Dorset/Devon border, the house is situated in a courtyard terrace and was once part of the stable block of the Home Farm near to the main mansion. Enjoy a peaceful and relaxing break - stroll along tree lined walks, take the path down to the estate's private beach or discover the South West Coastal foot path which runs through the grounds. Perfect for 4 -legged friends too! The Rousdon Estate is a 5 minute drive from Lyme Regis (home to the famous Cobb and some lovely beaches) and only 10 minutes from Axminster where the River Cottage Canteen can be found. In fact, it's a perfect spot for exploring all along the Jurassic coast - from looking for fossils at Charmouth and visiting the Swannery at Abbotsbury to the quietly dign... Read more

We had a really lovely Christmas stay in this beautiful spacious house. Great location and set in lovely grounds. We even had Carol singing at the Manor House. The house was well equipped and a delicious hamper welcomed us on arrival. Would definitely recommend.

Management response:

Glad you enjoyed your stay Regards Gill

About the neighbourhood
3 Home Farm North is situated in what was once the stable block with a triple height ceiling and an archway that would have allowed carriages in to be stored. The area is very peaceful and at night very dark (no street lighting so torches are a must!) Across the way is the old forge and farmhouse. There are many walks around the estate which can be used by visitors - see maps on the estate roads. Just outside the estate gates, The Dower House Hotel offers a small bar, the Peek Village Hall also runs a bar and the Rousdon bakery is a great little coffee shop and breakfast stop. Within the house is a basket of leaflets from attractions and things to do in the area.
Getting around
A car is necessary for getting around as the estate is 3 miles from the nearest town. There are a number of reputable taxi firms that operate in the area for nights out, details can be found in the house.
