A Family Long Week End

By Mr M S on 12-Jul-2022

We were a large family group of 7 adults and 4 children aged 1 - 8 years and this house was ideal for us. The bedrooms are large and most have en-suite. The house is very well equipped. The grounds are lovely and the children particularly enjoyed playing football on the lower garden, with goal and balls supplied! The playground across the road was also a real bonus. The location suited us very well, being about 15 minutes'' drive from Lyme Regis. We also enjoyed the open-top tram ride from Colyton Station to Seaton and back. We all enjoyed our stay and would like to have stayed longer. Mr S, 7 July 2022

Family Long Weekend

By Steven E on 24-May-2018

Lovely House - perfect for big families. Stayed at Knowles House with 5 other family members including elderly parents and a dog. Wonderful house with a terrific garden. Weather was perfect and garden was superb for chilling, sunbathing or even Yoga. Met by the owners who gave us a guided tour and explained everything we needed to know from the heating to the recycling. Lovely clean bedrooms with a twin on the ground floor with its own small lounge area perfect for the elderly who have difficulty with stairs. Layout of the kitchen with the cookers and crockery, separate sink room and a third utility room with large fridge and freezers take some getting used to but no big deal. There’s a standard cooker / low level grill if your not confident with using the Aga. Big flat screen TV in the lounge and plenty of small ones in the bedrooms if your that desperate to watch TV. Showers in the bedrooms were very good and we had no issues with hot water no matter what the time of day. Lovely walk for dog walkers alongside local river one minute from the house. Journeys out to local coastal towns didn’t take long in a car. Make your own mind up about the best ones to visit - we liked Beer but won’t be rushing back to Seaton! Lovely coastal walks between Seaton and Branscombe. Took a local taxi (The very helpful Bert from Seaton Taxi’s who took all 6 of us+ Dog) to the Ship Inn at Axmouth for a couple of evening meals - Quality food, highly recommended - make sure you book. Would definitely recommend this house. Show less Stayed: May 2018 Thank Steven E This review is the subjective opinion of a TripAdvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC

Large family stay

By KatieS on 30-Aug-2017

katiesmart2016 Staffordshire, United Kingdom 106 Reviewed 30 August 2017 Beautiful Victorian Home I stayed at Knowles with 11 family members including my elderly parents and children and it was a wonderful break for all of us. Knowles is a beautiful Victorian home that the owners once lived in with their parents. The house is very comfortable and cosy and each room has been left sympathetic to its origin which we all found lovely. The garden is amazing, the owners employ a gardener who clearly loves the garden as his own and keeps it pristine with beautiful flower beds and even a cottage garden with herbs etc growing in it which we were able to use. We were very lucky with the weather so we chose to stay at the house most days (we usually eat out a lot) but because the garden was so lovely we chose most days to hang around and eat Alfresco. The only negative I can think of is that we left our 2 dogs at home, what a mistake, they would have been in seventh heaven. Show less
