A few days away! (11 to 14 June 2018)

  • 5 of 5

Lovely cottage in a great location with very comfortable beds and everything else you need for a relaxing few days away (or longer) in beautiful Dorset!

Jacky was really helpful and responded to all questions very quickly, especially as we had booked very late in the day!

We would not hesitate to stay here again.

Charming Cottage, very well placed.

  • 4 of 5

Three of us had a great week in this comfortable period cottage which is well equipped. We did have good weather so we did not make the best use of all the cottage amenities but found the location excellent. The small village had a good pub, a useful Farm Shop and cafe and a welcoming church. The Garden led straight on a footpath bordering open country and connecting to the Coastal Path. Parking just down the road proved no problem. The house would easily cope with a family of four and even plus an extra baby. Steep stairs inside and steps up to the garden means it is not fully accessible but we managed even with two replaced knees.

The Perfect Break

  • 5 of 5

A delightful cottage in a delightful village. The ideal location ,quiet and peaceful yet a good centre for exploring the area; coast ,villages,towns and countryside. The cottage itself was very comfortable and well equipped and a few minutes' walk to an excellent dog friendly pub and farm shop. We would certainly be happy to stay again, which is surely the best recommendation.

Pretty little Tardis

  • 4 of 5

You think it is small, but it is not. Pleasant neighbours, lovely local pub, silence.

Comfy bed, well equipped. Free wifi, good TV. Everything as you would want it. The only down side is you have to park 50 metres or so away. But as the weather was amazing during our stay this was never an issue.

Quaint quiet cottage in pretty village

  • 4 of 5

This cottage is very centrally located to visiting the Dorset/ Devon coast. It's in a pretty quiet village with a farm shop & pleasant pub in walking distance. The cottage has spacious rooms with a lovely comfortable king size bed & twin beds. It is very well equipped for a stay in the countryside.

It has use of a shared garden too.

The only thing missing for me were logs for a fire or an electric fire to make the lounge more cosy, as it was quite chilly weather when we were there, even though it was June!

Owner's Response: We are delighted that you liked the cottage and enjoyed your stay in Dorset! The log basket is not left in the house as late as June, but is available in the shed. There are also some portable electric heaters available in the house for when a little extra heat is needed. We would encourage visitors to give us a call during their stay if there is anything they need as we can often help.

Light, airy, clean, spacious and cosy. Great location too.

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time - the area is full of local interest and the countryside and Jurassic Coast are beautiful. The owners laid on some nice touches with washing up liquid, cloth, sponge etc. which one never knows whether to bring, and all was well. We'd definitely go again. Thank you!
