“Truly wonderful property and surroundings”
Reviewed 8 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Just returned from a weekend at Middlemist, spent with friends to celebrate a 40th birthday. The house excelled in every way, the video on the website shows Middlemist as a very special elegant property but it's not until you walk through the door that you realise quite how special Middlemist is. Every room is elegant and luxurious, with special features and beautiful antiques and furniture. The views from the house are also very special with plenty of space around the grounds for pleasant walks. Whilst we stayed at Midldemist we visited Lyme Regis, Beer and Sidmouth which are all easily accessible from the Rousden Estate.
I would highly recommend Middlemist for every occasion and can't wait to return with my family next year.

“Exactly the treat we'd hoped for!”
Reviewed 30 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We stayed at Middlemist in October to celebrate my daughter's 30th birthday and my wife's 50th. It was a special occasion so we decided to pay a bit more for somewhere special. Middlemist was that and more, we had a great weekend, the house is in a fabulous setting (maybe a little further from the sea than we'd anticipated!) with great views, inside it's like home, just cleaner, better appointed and more comfortable and for me that's the ultimate benchmark! On the Sunday we went for lunch at River Cottage HQ, just 3 miles up the road and we really loved it, the food was fabulous.

We looked at hundreds of lets before settling on Middlemist and I'm really glad we did!

“A very special find”
Reviewed 8 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

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!
