About Victoria Turner
We are a married couple living in Surrey with two young children.
Victoria Turner purchased this Cottage in 2005
Why Victoria Turner chose Broadwindsor
We loved the pretty village, it has a rural feel, but with lots of places to visit nearby. The cottage is within walking distance to the local public house. We liked the idea of being close to things, but not having to put up with the noise and traffic.
What makes this Cottage unique
The village has a great community feel, we are always getting vegetables offered from the local allotments. Our children love the beaches, there are plenty to chose from, even in peak season they don't get packed and easy to park. We love going for walks, both in the countryside and along the coastal path. Our walks normally involve a pub lunch! Dorset is a food lovers area. Lots of great public houses and restaurants, we find the food to be of a high standard and generally fresh produce. You cannot beat fresh seafood, with a sea view!

Warm and cosy
Lovely cottage in a super location - loved having the shop and craft centre (with excellent cafe) so close by. We stayed during October Half Term, the cottage was so warm and spacious and had pretty much everything we needed. Really close to the Jurassic Coast which is where we spent much of our time with our 6 year old. Lovely!
Excellent cottage in a beautiful village
We had an excellent four night stay at this cottage. The cottage is fresh clean and beautifully furnished with good parking directly in front of the cottage across the street. The village has a small general store, a craft centre (good English breakfasts) and a local pub (good evening meals and drinks) all within walking distance of the cottage.
Everything was great.
