Absolutely idyllic cottage, we certainly found a little gem. The cottage was immaculate with high quality finishings throughout and amazing attention to detail. It is set in a lovely location, so peaceful and quiet my husband and I slept like a log. Lovely gesture of a bottle of wine, bread, cookies and biscuits on arrival. We took our two little dRead moreogs and there were even treats for them! It was like a 5 star hotel. The owners are lovely ! Couldn't fault it in any way, we will be back ! Hide

We loved staying at Hilltop Cottage. The property was expertly equipped and no expense was spared in terms of quality. We felt very comfortable in the cottage and we were made to feel very welcome. It is so peaceful and very quiet there with views across open fields. Sara and Rob are excellent hosts. This is a great location for exploring rural DorRead moreset and the south coast. We visited West Bay and Montacute House followed by Sunday lunch at the Kings Arms. Superb! We hope to visit again. Hide
