A Beautiful Cottage

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful cottage, that is cosy and well equipped. The courtyard garden is completely enclosed and safe for dogs.

The location is excellent for visiting the surrounding area.

I would recommend this cottage and we will definitely be returning.

Thank you!

Just what the doctor ordered

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I needed to get away from the hustle, bustle, stress and strains of modern day life. We hoped we would find peace and quiet; we were not disappointed. From the moment we drove into this beautiful, picture post card village we started to relax. The cottage was very easy to find from the directions given by Judith. The cottage is stunning. The decor is fresh and sympathetic to the style of this period home. Gloria ensured the cottage was spotless for our arrival. There were also some added extra's, there was a present for us of local tea and artisan biscuits and a goody box for our fur baby; Louie. The garden is private and enclosed, very safe for dogs and Louis loved exploring and sunbathing in the well maintained, high walled haven. I am so glad the April nights are cold; this enabled us to cosy up with the log burner.

The local area is so breathtaking; with Durdle Door beach (as well as many others) within a short drive. The local pub is a 15 minute walk from the cottage and serves decent food; we had the plowmans lunch, it was fresh and ample served with chunks of bread and butter.

The village shop is stocked with anything you could possibly need; much of it local produce.

We very rarely return to the same accommodation as we like to try new places; however, we will definitely be returning here! Thank you for sharing your little piece of perfection.

Idyllic did not want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful little cottage, pure chocolate box and such a privilege to be able to stay there. Judith has thought of everything. Cosy, warm, welcoming and a pure joy. Our 2 cavaliers loved it too. Stairs are a steep challenge but it certainly did not put us off - honestly cannot wait to return for longer. Thank you so much 😊

Lovely authentic thatched cottage

  • 5 of 5

If you like quirky, homely old cottages, then look no further as this is a real gem. When you have somewhere to stay like this, then you don't care what the the weather is like outside, as all you want to do is light the log burner and snuggle up in its authentic beamed interior. Everything you need is there in the cottage, including complimentary welcome present of tea, biscuit's and milk, and if you are lucky enough to book in the summer, you also have a sweet private garden in which to tuck in to them and relax after your travels or days out.

If however you can drag yourself away, then it's only 3 miles country road drive to lulworth cove and all the country and coast delights that spawn off it. This makes it an ideal location for a quiet break in a sweet quiet Dorset village, whilst having easy access to multiple nearby attractions, or alternatively a great base to throw off your office worker shackles and walk and cycle to your hearts content in beautiful countryside until you are tired but happy. I'm definitely coming back!

Beautiful Dorset Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Out stay was fabulous, peaceful and relaxing but still within walking distance of the village shop and pub which serves great food! The cottage itself was spotlessly clean and comfortable a real home from home, and lovely touches like fresh flowers a small welcome pack even a doggy box! I can only imagine how beautiful it must look in the spring and summer when the garden is in bloom. We visited Lulworth cove (walking distance if you like to stretch your legs a bit) and Durdle door the Jurassic coast did not disappoint stunning scenery . We visited West Bay (where Broadchurch is filmed) Weymouth ,Poole and our fabouratie places were Wareham , Monkey World was an amazing day out what fantastic rescue work they do it's was really touching to see the care they give to the monkeys.

From my first contact with Judith the owner she was professional, friendly and happy to suggest places for us to visit and answer any questions I had and Gloria the housekeeper rang us to make sure we had arrived safe and to make sure we had everything we needed .

We would certainly visit again and I would recommend this to cottage to friends and family we came home feeling very relaxed!

Beautiful cottage

  • 5 of 5

We could not fault this beautiful cottage in any way and the owner has thought of everything with respect of everyone's needs within the cottage. The location is idylic and it's just what you would expect of a village. Also places to visit were within easy reach. We would definitely recommend it to friends and family. The only fault, and it's no reflection on the cottage or village is that lorries and heavy traffic thunder through at fast speeds., maybe the owners should campaign about putting speed restrictions in for this beautiful village.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review, Clayton & we hope that you will return. The traffic has increased through the village because of sat navs & we are campaigning for some traffic calming measures. Happy to say that with the cottage & garden not being directly situated on the main road, this doesn't impact on the noise for anyone staying in the cottage. Hope to see you again soon.

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.
