Perfect retreat

5 of 5
The cottage was ideal for us and our two small dogs. Trish and Phil were friendly and helpful but gave us space too. We loved the welcome pack and the copious material on local places of interest. The cottage was very clean and tidy and had a wonderful outlook over the fields. We particularly appreciated the DVD player and CD hi-fi. Our dogs were made welcome and enjoyed the surrounding walks across the fields; though they got quite excited about the peacock! The situation is ideal for exploring the coast. Chesil beach is only 20 minutes away and there are spectacular views from the coast road. We would wholeheartedly recommend the cottage.

Lovely accommodation, gorgeous location.

5 of 5
We had a wonderful time at The Granary. The cottage itself is extremely comfortable and we loved the ensuite bathrooms for every room. The kitchen was the icing on the cake with everything we needed to cook whatever we wanted. We loved walking around the farm, seeing the lambs and the horses, and going down to the river to relax. The perfect getaway.
