homely bungalow

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week, clean, comfortable and homely property. Lovely private garden. Pene next door if you needed anything. plenty to see and I thought idealy situated for seeing things within 1hour/ 1hour.15 minutes away. Like Weymouth, New Forest, Milford -on-sea where you can see the isle of wight and the needles up close. There is also gold hill in shaftsbury. Would recommend.

Lovely break at Long Paddock

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed 4 nights in this lovely bungalow overlooking rolling hills and forests. The house is clean and comfortable with plenty of space to relax and has an amazing collection of books. The garden is beautiful and there is a tennis court. We'd definitely love to return. Shaftesbury is a short drive away. Pene is a lovely, welcoming host. Highly recommended

Very comfortable

  • 4 of 5

The house is well appointed with a lovely garden. It is ideal for dog owners. Some of the appliances are a little dated although alll in working order. The AGA cooker was surprisingly easy to use. Pene was always on hand and resolved any issues rapidly. We would certainly rebook.

Great Bungalow for relaxation and exploration

  • 5 of 5

We have nothing bad to say about this place. Penelope (owner) had baked cake for our arrival :-). The house is comfortable, spacious, warm, clean and you feel like it is a home. We would have liked to have stayed longer as there are always more things to see and do here in South-West! So Thank you :-D!

Wunderbares geräumiges cottage auf dem Land mit viel Umschwung, wir kommen gerne wieder

  • 5 of 5

Der wunderbare Aga Ofen verbreitete an den kühlen Tagen eine heimelige Wärme. Es liess sich wunderbar damit zu kochen. Das cottage mit den hellen Räumen war sehr gemütlich, toll war auch der Wintergarten. Mrs Cairns war sehr hilfsbereit. Gerne kommen wir hierhin zurück

Très beau gîte!

  • 5 of 5

Maison très confortable dans laquelle on se sent tout de suite très bien. Le salon, immense, est particulièrement agréable avec une vue sur le jardin très bien entretenu. Le hameau où se trouve la maison est très calme, desservi par une toute petite route. Pour autant, il suffit faire quelques kilomètres pour trouver à Shaftesbury tout le nécessaire pour faire ses courses. La maison est très bien placée pour découvrir cette région magnifique.
