Wonderful cottage in glorious, green Dorset countryside, with great walks for the dogs and lots of places to visit in the area. The cottage is spacious and well-equipped and we appreciated the enclosed garden and also the stream where a kingfisher can sometimes be seen.

Excellent cottage. Very spacious and perfect in every way . One of the best cottages we have ever stayed in. 3 noisy dogs enjoyed it very much, especially the river at bottom of garden.

The location is absolutely outstanding, quiet and peaceful. Buzzards, swifts, kingfishers on your doorstep. Plenty to do in the area and James was on hand with suggestions. Most places are dog friendly. Locals very helpful. Extremely clean cottage. Everything you need during your stay is at the cottage. We will be back to enjoy another week.

This is then nicest cottage we have ever stayed in. Cant think of anything negative to say. The woods and river was perfect for our dogs on such a hot week, Bella just ran down there and laid in the water so contented. Will definitely be going back as we were so chilled out.
