Comfortable and homely.

Lovely little cottage in Bradford Abbas. Very nicely decorated and very comfortable. We very much enjoyed our stay here. Both Mary and Tom were welcoming. My husband and I would be happy to stay here again should we come back to the area for a second visit!

Very Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful little cottage.The wife and I really enjoyed staying there.

The owners Tom and Mary are a lovely couple who have put a lot of work into the cottage presentation. I only hope other rental people do not spoil its condition and respect it.

We hope to stay again in the future.

It's location is a central point for Weymourth,Monkey World,Tauntpn,Somerset Levels Tec.

Absolutely first rate cottage.

  • 5 of 5

Having stayed in quite a few cottages i can honestly say that this is one of the best we have been to. Lovely owners, quiet, pub near enough on doorstep (with others close by). Plenty to do/visit including the Jurassic coastline. we loved every minute. Bren and Andy.

Clean, neat, warm and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for 4 days in Apple Tree Cottage, Mary and Tom were lovely; didn't bother us, but were available had we needed anything. The cottage was clean and warm, sadly needed as the April heat wave finished as soon as we arrived. Plenty of hot water, lovely kitchen with tea, coffee and fresh milk in the fridge, comfortable lounge and comfortable bright bedroom. Good shower. Visited the local pub a couple of times, had a nice pint (or two) and a chat with two young members of the bar team.
