Peaceful homestay, superb location, fab hosts!

5 of 5
Lovely homestay for our trip to Dorset with 3 lively cockapoos! Louise was a perfect host, even dog sitting for us while we went out to River Cottage HQ for dinner. Great location for exploring the Dorset/Devon border. Incredibly peaceful location with beautiful views down through the valley to the coast from the terrace. Love to come back some time.

Lovely getaway in lovely area

4 of 5
The Old Bakery is perfect for a quiet, away from it all,break with many lovely villages and the seaside, including the beautiful Jurassic coast within a few miles. The cottage itself is clean and has everything you need. It also has a big garden which is great for the dog. It is a great family cottage but for us who were four adults it was slightly cramped. However it was lovely to be able to view the stars, see an owl each night fly across the garden and bats circling. And to see a beautiful horse and its elegant rider early on Saturday morning. There is a pub a shop and a church a hop skip and a jump away and lovely doggie walks.
