Lovely cottage & large garden. Well equipped & with enough space o make it comfortable for a family. Tucked away but close enough to a main road to allow easy access to all Purbeck & beyond. Walks from the doorstep. As well seasoned cottage visitors this is among the best.

Cottage was great and in a really idyllic location. Everything was really clean and we had a great holiday staying in Afflington Lodge, the enclosed garden was great for the little ones. Very minor issue with the equipment just needing an upgrade, no smart TV for example. We would definitely reccomend this place for a family stay.

The cottage is wonderful and has everything you need. Its quiet, warm and with the most beautiful views onto the fields of sheep from the conservatory. Attention to detail with extra candles, towels and a fully laid fire was really nice. Will definitely recommend and return. Thank you.

Lovely quiet private location for this well appointed 3 bedroom cottage. Some really nice touches from the owner including fresh eggs from their chickens. The bonus was being able to use the excellent Astroturf tennis court. A pleasure to go somewhere that is even better than expected.
