The cottage is very spacious and well furnished and equipped. The location is excellent as are the grounds. We would not hesitate to book this cottage again and again!

The important aspect is that what was advertised was what we found. The cottage is well positioned, the kitchen well equiped and the general condition of the house and garden is good.

Very nice house in a lovely location. The house was very well appointed and was very clean. Everything worked and there was plenty of crockery, cutlery and kitchen utensils of all kinds. Lovely garden too and impossible to fault in any way. We had a wonderful week there.

Information for the cottage owner/Dorset Cottages of items for their consideration/action: - hot water from the kitchen tap was scalding hot with no way of reducing the temperature apart from mixing it with cold water -upstairs shower leaks onto floor as sealant has gone/badly installed? - downstairs shower requires at the minimum a shower curtain Read more- when in use it makes the floor near to the entrance door/toilet slippery/dangerous. It may dry up during the summer but this is sold throughout the year and the heating in the room is insufficient to dry the floor out when it is cold i.e. over Christmas - both shower heads keep dropping/collapsing over when in use/not in use. Are they too heavy for the upright/clamp or at these not working as required? -rugs in some bedrooms slip very easily on the polished floor boards i.e. twin room opposite double bedroom - an accident waiting to happen. -the temperature control of the oven in the kitchen is very erratic! Is it or the internal fans working properly - not ideal for a self catering cottage. - a number of pieces of the furniture in the lounge (where the log burner is) are very sunken/collapsed/seen better days i.e. the one in front of you as you walk into the room making them very uncomfortable - the furniture in the conservatory. The seat cushions in the chairs slip forward when you sit on them and keep having to be readjusted. The cushions on the chairs are too small and offer very little support? -a number of the sash windows could not be opened even after trying to unlock them with the key from the key cabinet - the kitchen has no natural ventilation (with no air movement) and gets very hot and stuffy even when not being used for cooking (the extractor is not ventilation) - even if you could unlock the kitchen window you cannot open it due to the design/location of the surround for the sink area. Poor. Hide

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

Dorset, a location of enduring popularity is a small rural gem of a county encompassing all of the best parts of rural England: rolling green hills, woodland and hedgerows abundant with flora and fauna running down to the sea yet situated just 3 hours from London and the South East.

The whole coastline from Exmouth to Poole has been declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO. Known as the Jurassic Coast, it is the only natural phenomenon in England to achieve this status and offers unspoilt views with dramatic cliff-top walks alongside beautiful, safe, sandy beaches which often welcome your four-legged friends too. From the dramatic natural rock arch at Durdle Door to the endless sandy expanses of Studland; Dorset has it all.

This South West county is also a treasure trove of secrets waiting to be discovered. Having grown out of the landscape out of the centuries, many of Dorset’s small rural towns expose history at every turn to inform and delight guests, whilst for the more energetic, footpaths and cycle-ways open up to reveal Dorset’s hidden secrets and the coast is always close at hand for those who love the water.

Why not head to Lyme Regis – classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, much like most of West Dorset to uncover an old-world ambience and excellent fossil hunting or discover the drama of Lulworth with the iconic Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove.

Dorset’s towns and villages ooze quintessential charm and are graced by fine buildings which have often been immortalised in Thomas Hardy’s books, including Dorchester – his birthplace. Wherever you choose to stay, you are never far from the fascinating Jurassic Coast and World Heritage Coastal Path.
