Middlemist is a Grade II listed corner courtyard cottage, situated adjacent to the stately mansion house in the heart of Rousdon, an exclusive 350 acre private estate set atop the Devon and Dorset Jurassic coastline. This beautifully restored and spacious dwelling can comfortably accommodate 8 people offering four double bedrooms (2 ensuite). With its flint stone walls and exposed beams, traditional decoration but with all modern appliances it offers a truly wonderful setting from which to explore nature or simply relax with some rooms offering distant sea views. Guests have access to the surrounding countryside and the half mile stretch of private beach perfectly fulfilling those with a sense of adventure as access to the beach is via a steep (but safe) cliff top path. Rousdon is just a few miles from 'the pearl of Dorset' Lyme Regis.

A hidden gem

Date of Stay 23 May 2014 Helpful votes: 3/1 Having stayed in cottages on the Rousdon estate before, we thought we knew what to expect - how wrong we were! This is a stunning tardis of a house, much bigger than we expected, beautifully decorated & furnished & exceptionally-well kitted out, particularly the kitchen. And the tree house in the garden was an added, unexpected treat! We would highly recommend staying here!

A very special find

Date of Stay 26 Aug 2013 Helpful votes: 3/0 A wonderful property, excellent facilities in a lovely setting. What was so good about this property is that everything you could possible need is provided. The owners have put a lot of thought into this. The house was very clean & the furnishings done to a high standard that makes a stay away from home a treat rather than a chore! We were a mixed party of 3 ladies with our 6 children ranging from 16months to 11 years & they all enjoyed the house, gardens & grounds. Would highly recommend. Thank you for a wonderful holiday!
