New House Farm B&B and Mangerton Fishing Lake in Bridport
- 4 Star
- Wireless Broadband
New House Farm is a comfortable farmhouse offering traditional style Bed and Breakfast just three miles from the sea. It is set in the rural Mangerton Valley, near to the farm's own coarse fishing lake. The area is flanked by the beautiful rolling Dorset hills and has an abundance of wildlife.
New House Farm is situated just outside the town of Bridport, which is historically known for its markets. These still take place today - every Wednesday and Saturday and offer a wide variety of goods from food and clothing to jewellery, crafts and bric-a-brac.
West Bay and the stunning Jurassic coastline are also only a few miles away making it ideal for those who enjoy walking, fishing and watersports - not to mention fossil hunting!
Guests can enjoy watching the webcam in the Breakfast Room which shows nesting birds producing and raising their chicks.
We promote local quality foods. Breakfasts are traditional but we try to cater for all dietary needs. There are fresh eggs from our own hens, honey from the hives situated behind the house, and home-made jam and marmalade. We can also provide home-baked breads.
The farm has a large, informal garden comprising an orchard, steep shrubbery, and vegetable garden.
New House Farm Bed and Breakfast offers two large family rooms, the Eggardon at the front of the house and the Pilsdon at the rear.
Both offer spacious ensuite facilities, colour LCD television with freeview, large walk-in wardrobe, refrigerator and tea/coffee making facilities. Each room features a double bed and a single with pull-out single bed underneath. Travel cot and high chair available. Free wi-fi internet access.
The 20' Eggardon Room sleeps up to 4, is light and spacious and has a south-facing balcony enjoying views across the countryside. It also has a 'divider' allowing you to section off the room enabling privacy for sharing families. There is also a comfortable sofa.
The sunny 17' Pilsdon Room also sleeps up to 4. It has views across the rear garden and open fields with windows to both the south and west.
A traditional breakfast is served in the relaxing Breakfast Room which has a large window allowing guests to watch the thriving bird activity in the garden. There is also the opportunity to see wildlife even closer via a webcam where you can watch the nesting birds build, produce and raise their chicks. Fishing
