Outstanding Holiday Property

Absolutely lovely comfortable accommodation. Great location as a base for rambling walks, stunning beach views and great local food. Special place for couples to relaxing and unwind. 
Would most definitely recommend this well presented looked after barn conversion. Hopefully we can visit again one day soon. Thank you Chris for being on hand in giving us directions to the property and many thanks for the personal touches these were much appreciated. 
Big thumbs up.

Relaxing weekend

Lovely accommodation. Clean and well equipped. Feels as if you're really 'away from it all' yet all the amenities you need are not too far away. Brilliant walks and beautiful scenery nearby. Would certainly return to Pydelspring in the future

Perfect cottage for two

Perfect cottage for two - very well-equipped, cosy and comfortable. Ideal for touring the coast and interior of Dorset / edge of Devon and Somerset. Freesat a nice extra touch!!

Peaceful and relaxing stay

Very comfortable accommodation. Clean, tidy and uncluttered. Near to the coastal path and beautiful countryside. The kitchen is fully equipped and we even had a bottle of wine waiting for us in the fridge. I would definitely recommend and hope to return one day.


This was my second visit and just as lovely as the first. It's a pleasure to stay in such a clean and comfortable place that's so well thought out and equipped. I really appreciated the fast wi-fi, big flat tv, comfy bed and very efficient heating and shower. After a day out exploring the area or walking the beautiful coastline so nearby, it's wonderful to come back 'home'. I also loved the coffee from the excellent farm shop opposite! The owner is easy to contact and gives clear instructions beforehand with a follow up email afterwards. All this helps to create a very happy time and I’m sure I’ll be back again!

Beautiful area and great place to stay

A two minute walk to a great tea room, diverse farm shop and the Moore biscuit shop. This great, new and superbly clean property was a pleasure to stay in and the owners and booking service were great, 
Its ten minutes drive to Lyme Regis which is beautiful and there is a great 45 minute walk to the sea. 
The place itself has everything you need, we stayed for 7 days and made full use of the kitchen, washer, dishwasher, wi-fi, etc. The fact these cottages are two adjoining properties put me off a little before we arrived, but there is no problem with noise or privacy. I'd highly recommend it.

Short break in Pydelspring from 4/10/17 to the 9/10/17

Pydelspring is a well equipped semi-detached two storey cottage with a downstairs kitchen/lounge/diner and a shower room/toilet and double bedroom on the first floor. It is ideally located for access to the coastal path, Bridport, Charmouth and Lyme Regis. We used it as a base to do some walking in the area, which included a part coastal walk directly from the property.

Lovely, quality accommodation, really approachable owner.

This converted barn is set in a pretty village close to the Golden Cap ( highest point on this part of the south coast). It is a great base to explore some of the most beautiful countryside and amazing views of the Jurassic coastline. There are several walks but those of us from the flatter parts of the country be prepared for what we called 'extreme walking' especially if you climb the Golden Cap from the west side but honestly we loved the walks that we did. 

The barn is split into two one bedroom cottages, it is decorated beautifully and the fixtures and fittings are top quality, everything we needed had been thought of and the welcome pack biscuits didn't last long after a six hour journey. 

There is a Morrisons supermarket in the little town of Bridport only three or four miles along the A35. We also discovered a lovely little place called West Bay, there had been a recent cliff fall and we found some great fossils, it has a great little harbour and quite a few little food outlets and shops. 

We both fell in love with this part of Dorset and we were so grateful that we found such a beautiful holiday cottage. Would we recommend it? Would we return to this particular cottage again? 100% Yes and Yes! 

What an amazing holiday and we can't wait to repeat it again soon.

Lovely Accommodation

Greenwood has everything needed for a relaxing holiday. Spotlessly clean and well equipped. Easy access to coastal path.

Excellent place to explore West Dorset & the Jurassic Coast

Pydelspring proved to be an excellent choice for our short holiday in Dorset. Its location is ideal for both exploring the area by car or to simply walk out onto the footpath network. (Good circular walk down to Charmouth and back along the Coast Path taking in Golden Cap). The accommodation is as advertised and is more than adequate for two persons sharing a double bed. The décor is simple and modern and in excellent condition. The equipment is comprehensive and the kitchen utensils good enough for any but the more ambitious cooks! Would certainly have no hesitation recommending this property.

Excellent accommodation

Pydelspring was the perfect holiday base. The accommodation was spotlessly clean, well-designed, well-equipped, light and modern. The location is ideal for walking the coastal path and for easy access to Bridport, West Bay, Charmouth, Lyme Regis etc. Bus stops nearby for Jurassic coast routes. Farm shop opposite, Annie's tea rooms (great coffee) and post office (newspapers) just along the road. Thanks for a great stay and for welcome pack.

Pydelspring Cottage - Lyme Holidays

Lovely cottage spotlessly clean very tastefully furnished.We had an excellent holiday walking on the downs and visiting places near by. Annie's tearoom almost next door is a must (especially for there bread pudding). We will certainly return again.

Top quality and comfort

We really enjoyed our stay, the house was spotlessly clean, fresh and very tidy. 5 ⭐️ Hotel standard in my opinion. No clutter just simple, stylish and very comfortable.

Beautiful inside and out

Last minute getaway, the owner Chris emailed me personally to make sure I had everything needed due to my lack of organisational skills in booking so last minute. Easy check in and check out despite this, privacy given throughout although contact details always on hand if we had any questions. We took the walk to Seatown and Golden Cap from the back garden and it made for a fantastic day out, spent the rest of the time driving and exploring the Jurassic Coast in both directions.

The accommodation was modern, warm, and well thought out. All the necessities needed were there, parking was right outside. Thank you for saving me from a drab and eventless annual leave spent at home. We wish you all the best for the future and will definitely recommend to friends.

Stay at Greenwood

Thanks to Chris Wood and his team, Had a great week at Greenwood. Spotlessly clean and very well equipped, Will definitely book again, so much to do and see.

Lyme Holidays (Greenwood Cottage)

My wife and I have just had a wonderful holiday in Dorset where we were based at Greenwood cottage. The cottage has everything you need to make your stay a very enjoyable experience. The welcoming touches included milk, tea,biscuits and a bottle of wine which were appreciated after our long drive from Yorkshire. The cottage is kept to a very high standard. We also found that the location is ideal as a base to access many of the attractions located both on the coast and inland. We would certainly recommend Greenwood cottage to anyone wanting to holiday on the beautiful Jurassic coast.

Excellent self catering accommodation - Lyme Holidays

Greenwood is spotlessly clean, extremely well equipped and well designed accommodation. There is an attention to detail that is rare to find. We both loved our stay and wouldn't hesitate to return. Thank you so much.
