About Lindsay

We fell in love with Hillview Cottage when we saw it back in 2005 and bought it as our holiday home. Having done extensive renovations to modernise the cottage, we love spending time there together as a family in front of a roaring fire in the winter or in the garden enjoying a BBQ in the summer months.

Lindsay purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Lindsay chose Broadwindsor

We spent many years holidaying in West Dorset when our children were very young and grew to love the beauty of the ares. There is so much to do from days on the many beaches, to beautiful country walks, to dining in fabulous restaurants and country side pubs, and simply relaxing in a beautiful surroundings

What makes this cottage unique

This is our home which we offer to you to enjoy. It is furnished as a home rather than a holiday let so the kitchen is fully equipped, there are tons of DVDs to watch and books to read, and even a PS3 to keep teenagers occupied!

A lovely house in a quiet and relaxing setting

We really enjoyed our stay and we're blessed with some excellent weather. The house is spacious and well equipped and the Dorset coast is within easy reach. We would definitely stay here again.

Lovely countryside cottage

  • 5 of 5

Had a lovely holiday in this cottage, just right for the size of our group (5). Lots of space so that we could all relax in our own ways without falling over each other. The conservatory room was particularly lovely, looking out over the garden. Admittedly the weather was superb so we took advantage of the large patio for meals outside. The large kitchen with an Aga was a bonus. Bedrooms were comfortable with good sized bathrooms. Situated in beautiful, quiet countryside with Beaminster just down the road for morning coffee. The coast was within an easy drive so really had the best of both worlds. Sorry to have to leave but hopefully will be back one day soon.

Gemütlich und wunderschön

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus ist wunderschön . Es war viel schöner als es auf den Fotos ausschaute und sehr grosszügig.

Es war ein riesiges Abenteuer auf dem AGA zu kochen , ich liebte es. Dadurch war es sehr warm und gemütlich .

Das Haus war sehr sauber, duftete fein nach frischer Wäsche und hat persönlichen Charm.

Wir fühlten uns sehr wohl. Es ist geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Auch der Garten ist grosszügig und sehr gepflegt. Die Aussicht sehr malerisch.

Wir würden das Haus sofort wieder mieten. Herzlichen Dank dass wir das Haus mieten durften.
