Very comfortable accommodation, everything necessary for a great stay, including children's plates, cups etc. Well stocked with helpful books, maps etc. The grandchildren really enjoyed the summerhouse and the play kitchen equipment and play food, also the set of cars. The large garden was enjoyed by all, our grandson thought it was amazing. Enjoyed the wildlife that came into the garden, rabbits, squirrels, woodpeckers, finches and wrens. Also a good location, lovely views and a short drive to the beaches at Bournemouth, Boscombe and Poole. A big thank you to Sonia for all her help in making our stay so enjoyable.

We arrived in the dark but the inside lights were on and the rooms were all lovely and warm, there was even a welcome package of milk, bread, butter and eggs (from their own hens) with fruit in the bowl! Ally couldn't have been more welcoming or helpful! The cabin was fully equipped with a washer/dryer, a microwave, a dishwasher and every utensil that we could wish for. There were even spare dog towels on the hot water cylinder. We were down from Scotland visiting friends and family and the cottage was central for Dorset, Hampshire and Wiltshire. Thank you, Ally, for a wonderful visit!
