                                                            Peaceful and welcoming, served the basic needs for a short stay in Dorset. Its got lots of character and was comfortable to stay in. Being an old property there were a few spiders but overall we enjoyed our stay very much.

                                                            Good experience

                                                            4 of 5
                                                            We stayed at the house for a long weekend. The house is great, clean, spacious and comfortable. the garden is beautiful and well kept and watching the birds was great fun. The thing that we didn't like was the calculated atmosphere - e.g. little toilet paper, no soap, honesty list on the wall, direct request to 'leave the house as clean and tidy'. It's not that these things shouldn't be kept but it made us feel less comfortable and less at home. In addition, although communication was great while booking, on the day itself it was more difficult to reach Sonia and Mary and it felt a bit intrusive when we did. But overall it is a lovely house!

                                                            The Cullens, who own the property, were very friendly & helpful during our two night stay. The property is compact, cosy & scrupulously clean. There were complementary biscuits, danish pastries, milk, ground coffee & sweets, waiting on arrival for my partner, daughter & myself..... Which was a lovely touch! Unfortunately during the second night of our stay there was a local power cut for an hour or two, which resulted in the owners alarm system being set off for around an hour, certainly not their fault, but we were given a nice bottle of wine for any inconvenience caused! It was a lovely short break & can't think of anything which would have improved it at all! Would thoroughly recommended.
