About Kim Angeli

We moved to Dorset in 2001 from Walton-on-Thames in Surrey. The reason behind the move was that we had owned a holiday cottage in Uploders, Bridport, West Dorset for many years and it was getting harder and harder to leave on a Sunday night! The children were still very young, and therefore we did not encounter any teenage rebellion!

We initially moved to Piddletrenthide in West Dorset, and then in 2007 we found our home in Minchington (after 3 years of searching!)… we renovated the cottage first, which we lived in as the renovations for the main house and barn took place.

We decided to start renting out the cottage in September 2013, and have been enjoying the experience of meeting new people from all over the UK and overseas, and more importantly, welcoming them back!

Kim Angeli purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Kim Angeli chose East Dorset

We took so long to find our home because we had a huge tick list!..

Our home ticked all the boxes, and still does - we simply love it.

The situation is just perfect - beautiful walks, lovely country pubs and to be surrounded by nature every day has to be good for you, but then to be able to be walking by the sea-shore in just over half an hour is very special too.

I think I have waxed lyrical enough - hopefully you will be able to capture some of the feelings I have tried to express!

What makes this cottage unique

Tranquility comes to mind first -

Great pubs within easy distance comes 2nd!..

The cottage is beautiful, clean, comfortable and welcoming. It is set in a quiet, pretty lane.

  • 5 of 5

We sadly didn't see the local villages and towns due to an illness of one of our group but the cottage had everything we could possibly need. The entertainment barn is amazing and Kim & Peter couldn't have been any more accommodating! They are lovely people. We will certainly be back again soon.

Wonderful Cosy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the cottage on the 14th-16th October. Weavers Cottage is in a beautiful rural setting, and the cottage itself is cosy and inviting. Kim left us little welcome hamper with the basics. We had the opportunity to put on the wood burner during our stay, which was wonderful. Unfortunately we didn't get the opportunity to make use of the cinema room/bar in the adjacent Barn but it looked incredible! We look forward to retuning one day!

Hidden gem

  • 5 of 5

I didn't really want to review this hidden gem - as we wanted to keep it a secret. It's lovely - real country cottage - and added bonus of the barn with bar - what a brilliant idea.

Lovely setting near a few pubs - which were lovely.

As I said I wanted to keep it a secret - but you should know - it's absolutely beautiful and very clean and comfortable - a real gem.
