Description

Benoy Cottage is a quaint farm cottage set at the heart of a working dairy farm, surrounded by the beautiful west Dorset countryside. From here a herd of 450 pedigree Holstein cows are milked.  

The cottage was completely renovated in 2009 and offers a spacious open plan living, kitchen and dining area. Externally, two sets of French doors offer direct access to the furnished decked balcony and then onto the communal lawn.

Pilsdon Dairy Farm is a fouth generation family farm that has been farming in this area for over 100 years. The family is very proud of their pedigree herd, and arrangements can be made in advance for an informal tour of the dairy unit.

Pilsdon Dairy Farm is just a few miles away from the dramatic Jurassic Coast, England’s first World Heritage site. The popular market town of Bridport is a short drive away where there are a selection of cafes, restaurants, an arts centre and a large supermarket. The picturesque harbour town of Lyme Regis is also a short drive away where you can find an array of shops, eateries and beaches.

Benoy Cottage will provide a luxury hamper for each booking. Guests staying for 7 nights will receive: a loaf of bread, box of eggs, milk, homemade scones, jam and cream, butter, local bacon and tea & coffee.  Guests staying 3 or more nights will receive: a loaf of bread, homemade scones, jam and cream, milk, tea & coffee.

To accommodate groups of 8, Heather Cottage can also be booked.

Lyme Regis made itself a particularly talented fan in the form of Jane Austen when she visited it twice for a break beside the sea, and she set even her novel ‘Persuasion’ in the town. Today, the resort draws Austen...

Benoy Cottage

Just spent a fantastic week at this cottage, the sound of cows in the morning is a breath of fresh air. The owners are very friendly and will sort any issues you have straight away. The perfect place for a stress free holiday

A beautiful cottage, very peaceful.

A beautiful cottage, very peaceful. Its great waking to the sound of cows. I could spend hours just watching the swallows, swifts and wagtails. Thanks, we really enjoyed our stay.

A lovely week with ever changeable weather which kept us on our toes.

A lovely week with ever changeable weather which kept us on our toes. However so much to do whether rain or shine. Last days of perfect weather, we discovered our favourite place, Burton Bradstock with the Hive Cafe. What fantastic sea food! The cottage is lovely - all mod - cons in a traditional style, everything we needed whether for heading out for the day or staying in to unwind. Thanks for a great week

We have had a really lovely week here.

We have had a really lovely week here. The weather has been super. The cottage is a really nice place to stay, having everything you need. The milking dairy is very interesting, we saw two calves born with in 10 minutes - weren't we lucky. We have been made very welcome - thank you for being so kind to us and we did enjoy the welcome basket, really good! Thank you once again for making our week so enjoyable

Benoy Cottage

We had a nice relaxing Easter break at the cottage - 3 out of 4 days with sun. The cottage has everything you could wish for and we were glad we stocked up at Morrisons to supplement our food parcel on arrival - a welcoming treat. We enjoyed exploring Dorset and visiting West Bay, Lyme Regis, Golden Cap, Swanage Railway, Corfe Castle, Dorchester and Weymouth and Portland. Will crack open our stones when we get back to see if we have any fossils! thank you

What a wonderful place. We have enjoyed beautiful weather in a beautiful setting. The cottage has been very comfortable and had everything we needed for a really relaxing break. The welcome basket was a lovely surprise and very scrummy! A surprise marriage proposal made this a very special week!

Very comfortable and perfect for our needs. The countryside as other have said is beautiful. Thank you for the 'welcome pack' which was a very thoughtful touch - as were the flowers

Benoy Cottage

Benoy Cottage is lovely. We were extremely happy with everything including the lovely welcome pack that awaited us, fresh baked scones, clotted cream and jam, bread and butter and milk. Had everything we needed, just wish it had been warmer so we could sit out on decking and enjoy. Was quite hard to find, down lots of narrow country lanes and only downside was slightly a bit far out from things, but very peaceful except for the odd sounds of the cows. Would stay there again, the cottage was a little gem.

Benoy Cottage

What a lovely, light and airy cottage, looking out onto fields and trees! We've really enjoyed our few days - so much to explore in terms of coast and countryside. Everything has been very comfortable and convenient. The welcome pack was a delicious start to our stay. Thank you - hope to come again.

We have had a lovely weekend break in your lovely cottage - thank you. Just what we needed. The cottage is very warm and comfortable with lovely views and lovely to see the calves from the windows. The scones and cream were delicious - thank you! The weekend has gone too fast but hopefully we will come back soon.

Benoy Cottage

A beautiful cottage with more home comfort than we expected. A home from home. The welcome basket was certainly an added bonus and the hosts were lovely. We wish we could stay longer though we will definitely be back. Perfect base to explore the beautiful countryside

Benoy Cottage

Thank you for a truly relaxing week. The cottage is beautiful and airy and to wake up each morning to the gentle sound of cows mooing was lovely! The farm is so peaceful and the balcony was lovely to sit out on each evening and watch the sun go down! Yes, we had sun, but I would come here again even without that. A beautiful setting with fabulous, welcoming hosts. The farm tour was fascinating and shared with such passion and pride.
