Wonderful house, perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great welcome with homemade Dorset apple cake and friendly greetings from James. The instructions for getting to the house were clear. This was helpful as part of its beauty was the rather remote location. This is one of the best equipped properties we have ever stayed in. There were nine of us and it was a pleasure to cook in the kitchen and eat in the big comfortable dinning room. Everyone spent time in the garden watching the wild life and the ever changing estuary . We highly recommend Ower Quay Cottage.

Perfect family holiday location

  • 5 of 5

An absolutely stunning waterfront location. Ten of us, six adults and four children, had a fantastic family holiday. The garden with swings, barbeque and tree house etc and the private beach made it a magical time for the kids especially - one day they preferred to stay at the house to play rather than go to the Studland beaches. The house is very well equipped and it has that lovely "comfortable" feel. It was great for hide and seek on the day it rained! It is very much off the beaten track so be prepared for peace and quiet (if the kids allow it). Thanks to Laura and James, the owners for providing such a perfect holiday retreat. Oh, and the Dorset apple cake upon arrival was also very welcome too! Cannot wait for our next visit.

The Pictures Dont Come Close To How Amazing It Really Is 😍❤

  • 5 of 5

Booked this property for me and my family to stay for the easter break and was absolutely amazing. Great directions to get to the cottage and very secure. Greeted at the door with two smiling faces again amazing - pamper basket and amazing dorset apple pie!!! The house is very homely and very child freindly, the pictures dont come close to how amazing the place is, every room and every view from every window.Even the bed sheets and towels smelt fresh and clean (big big thing for us).Cant fault one thing about our stay here or the holiday as a whole. Perfect in every way. Im sure we will defo look to stay here again.

Thank you again - was just amazing xxx

Couldn't have asked for a nicer spot

  • 5 of 5

This property is maintained to a very high standard. All 5 bedrooms were beautiful with very comfortable beds, kitchen has everything you need for cooking for 12 at home and the fires are so nice on cold nights. Towels, bed linen are all provided, as well as a welcome hamper to get you started with eggs, milk, biscuits etc.

We came on Easter weekend and they had some nice little Easter touches like an Easter wreath and decorations. The surroundings are also a great place for an Easter egg hunt!!

I would definitely recommend this place to friends.

Away from it all

  • 5 of 5

A weekend away for a party of 11, ages 73 down to 20 months. The children loved having to drive through 3 gates to get to it, and immediately claimed one sitting room as their own. We kayaked and rowed, wandered the grounds and the shore and had a lovely afternoon on Studland. Morning coffee in the garden (apple cake supplied in our welcome basket); delicious suppers rustled up by the dads in the well equipped kitchen. Plenty of room for all of us to pursue our chosen activities and a warm welcome - thank you Laura's husband for making sure the Waitrose man got through!

We hope to return for a longer stay in the near future
