Most enjoyable stay

  • 5 of 5

Had the opportunity to stay in Milton Cottage at the beginning of May during a sunny spell. Easy to follow instructions to the cottages front door. Small tidy courtyard completely safe for our dog with table and chairs for outside dining. The owners had thoughtfully provided a hamper of tea and biscuits and milk in the fridge which was so welcome after our long journey. Comfortable beds. I was initially concerned about the steepness of the stairs as we were visiting with my parents aged 79 and 83.... But both managed comfortably. Lots of lovely walks and a well stocked village shop. Will be back.

Beautiful cosy cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Milton Cottage, from first enquiry right through to check out time, Judith and Gloria made the whole experience easy and an absolute pleasure.

The cottage is well located for many local attractions and is very well equipped with almost everything you think you need, the woodburning fire was a particular favourite of ours and made the evenings super cosy.

I cant wait to visit again and see the garden in its summer glory.

Thanks so much for making our stay so easy and relaxing

The perfect getaway

  • 4 of 5

The listing and photos perfectly portrayed the delightful cottage. The facilities were as described and in good working order. The cottage was clean and the flowers and welcome tray made us feel immediately at home. We were able to enjoy the peace of the little garden as well as the evening fires. The information supplied was correct and very helpful both with regard to the equipment in the cottage and the details of the surrounding area. We just loved the Village Store and the bakery in Wool.

The famous local attractions of Lulworth Cove & Durdle Door are a 5 minute drive away. The World Heritage site of the Jurassic Coastline stretches along this part of the coast. Kimmeridge Bay is well known for the fossils and amazing sunsets. The use of a car is a necessity due to the nature of the local public transport.

Further Details:

Ideal base for exploring the land made famous by Thomas Hardy and the final resting place of Lawrence Of Arabia. Bird watchers will love the local RSPB sanctuaries and walkers will be in their element with a large selection of walks on either heathland, coastal paths or green pastures. Shoppers can visit Poole, Dorchester & Weymouth for a selection of local & national shops including Waitrose, Tesco & Sainsburys together with local produce shops & eateries. Locally caught and produced produce deck the shelves in the shops. The village Post Office & shop is a useful place to support the locals. Look out the Artsreach signs which mean there is a nearby art activity. Cream teas are a must.
