Welcoming village. Good food at the pub. Area close by for evening dog walk. If you have noise sensitive dogs, be aware that there was gun fire audible from the army ranges x2 during our week 8pm-midnight! Good secure garden.

Lots of seats around. No visitors book, sad as we could all share ideas and help one another. Hide

A fab week away in bubbs cottage. Such a lovely place to stay with everything you could need. Did some long walks in area and used the Dorset dog walking guide which was at the cottage. Two great pubs in area, one 5 mins away and the other a 30 min walk which was no problem. Such a charming place to stay, would definitely recommend.

Bubbs Cottage is a really cosy, well equipped cottage in a great location for visiting stunning beaches. Very dog friendly with a safe enclosed garden and a small green near by that you can safely let dogs off lead to exercise. You can walk to the local pub where dogs are welcomed and even provided with a menu. The meal we had there was delicious !Read more Best to book though as limited tables that allow dogs.

Extremely comfortable Cottage with home from home comfort. If your looking for peace, and quite this location is idea as the village is rural , and with no mobile phone signal, which didnt bother us. The internet connection was very good. The stairs in the cottage I guess are typical for the age of the cottage, but wouldnt suit everyone as the top Read more2 stairs are very narrow . The garden is very secure for children, or dog. The ceilings downstairs are low in places, and you might need to duck. Hide
