    As soon as we walked in the door of the School Room we knew it was the ideal place for peace and quiet and all the decor so appropriate for an ideal home from home. The owners obviously have taken so much trouble to give their guests a first class experience added to the attractive surroundings of the village.

    An excellent property, everything you need, quiet location and easy access to Lyme Regis, Sidmouth and Forde Abbey. Recommended.

    Wonderful accommodation, great hosts and an amazing community shop come cafe. Excellent walks from village. An ideal base for the beautiful county of Dorset.

    We've had a great week at the School Room. The "Room" is quite cosy and has got everything you need. Very nice beds! The owners are friendly and very helpful. Devon, Dorset and Somerset are all in easy access. It's all there within less than an hour's drive; we went to Exeter, Taunton, Dorchester, Lyme Regis and Bridport. Thorncombe may not have a pub of its own, but the village shop and church are literally at your doorstep.

    This was our first stay at The School Room and we had a lovely time. Richard and Pauline, the owners, were most friendly and helpful - as were all the villagers we met - and we would gladly return to this property again. The cottage is set in beautiful countryside and is in an ideal position to explore local places of interest and the nearby coast. We have stayed in a lot of self-catering places as well as B & Bs in this area and would say that staying in The School Room has been one of our most enjoyable holiday experiences.

    We had rain nearly every day but we were so warm and cosy it did not spoil our stay. We were made very welcome in the village and the local village store was brilliant. It had fresh bread, wonderful pies and curries and doubled as a coffee shop/ meeting place. We would certainly recommend The School Room.

    We had a great 3 days here, suited us especially as we have a large dog and there are some wonderful walks straight from the cottage. Fabulous village, very friendly locals and we enjoyed coffees at the local shop/ tearoom. Thank you Pauline

    The School Room was an excellent holiday base. Its comfy and well stocked, beautifully clean and in a very pretty village. It also has a completely enclosed garden, so my little dog could not escape. Unfortunately, for me, the holiday was not a great success -due to the 3 storms which hit the south and west in the week I was there. Cold, wet and windy every day does not make for a good time!
