“Perfect Intimacy in beautiful setting inside and out”

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.

“Just what we hoped for!”
Reviewed 21 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Lovely stay in the little cottage Little Roost. Perfect selection of goodies on arrival and super super soft towels. The plans for a roof terrace will be a great addition! Nice quiet location and only a 5 minute drive down to the picturesque Cobb. A great stay thank you Rosemary & Duncan
