Fabulous holiday

  • 5 of 5

Myself, my husband, our daughter and two children stayed in North cottage from 11th July to 15th July 2016, and we had a great time.. The cottage was gorgeous, fabulous kitchen diner, comfy lounge and spacious bedrooms, there was plenty of room.. We loved our stay.. Thank you for the lovely bottle of wine a lovely gesture..

The village shop was amazing we had a lovely welcome and the staff were so helpful.. We arrived on a Monday evening just as they were about to close but they stayed open and we gathered some local goodies for our evening meal as the local pub The White Lion doesn't serve food on Monday and Tuesday evenings...

We packed a lot into our few days and it was great having our lovely cottage to go back to..

We will be back and will recommend to family and friends..

Facilities

From the Owner

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!
