The Owner purchased this cottage in 2006
I just love living in the country and getting away from it all as I spend a lot of time working in London
Nothing is too much trouble, my guests are my number one priority, and it's important to me you enjoy yourself. If you need to know anything just ask!
The cottage was very charming but there were a few issues that we pointed out to the owner ....unable to regulate the heating as it was on a timer from the property next door , so had to wait in the cold till radiators came on . Deterred from using open fire due to safety issues of the thatched cottage next door . General cleanliness in arrival , fridge and oven dirty . Would have appreciated some milk on arrival , whether fresh or capsules to make a cup of tea , especially people had written in the review book that they had been welcomed with a bottle of wine !!!!!!!! Not us !!!
However , lovely location for exploring beautiful Dorset !!!!
All in all a lovely cottage but felt we , as paying guests, needed to point out the heating situation ... luckily the weather was beautiful outside but we are still only April and the cottage is an old house and gets cold when heating off !!! .
Good luck to the owners in the future .
Property is indeed quaint but heating, hot water and cleanliness are problems. The under floor heating, as mentioned in Amenities, does not work, on-demand hot water system is inconsistent and many spider webs that have been there for awhile. The owners were nice and came over to resolve the hot water issue. It would have been helpful to know the heating radiators were on preset timers that came on for a few hours in the evening and then a few hours in the morning. When they were cold when we woke up in the morning and the cottage was quite cold, we assumed our heating system was malfunctioning. Even after heating for a few hours, it was generally chilly in the cottage. I don't believe we would stay there again.
We had the most relaxing and recharging midweek stay and our 9 year old son joined us for the weekend...all we now hear is "when are we going back to Monk's Cottage". We recommend this cottage to anyone that loves the peace and quiet and wants to explore the abundance of magical wildlife ( deer) and footpaths all around. The owners are very friendly and helpful and suggested an Ordinance Survey map in order to make the most of the area...this was a very good suggestion. We will be back!
We had a lovely break with our dogs and walked miles in the beautiful countryside managing to pass through parts of Wiltshire, Dorset and Hampshire. Loved the period charm of Monk's cottage and the extra little touches which made it feel so homely and welcoming. The underfloor heating made the cottage really cozy.
Lovely area to stay and peaceful.but cottages needs a bit of tender loving care and would be made a lot nicer to the eye.even though it didn't spoil our stay we could see the potential for improvement.
Our first impressions was not good as when we opened door could smell damp and can see on walls as black in places ,once we got wood burner going it was cosy ,it could do with a good clean dust cobwebs etc ,our second night was not good as my partner fell down stairs which could have been prevented if there was hand rail we spent morning in a/e he has severe bruising of the ribs ,it could be lovely cottage if they did little bit work to inside
