Excellent week spent in a gorgeous cottage. The welcome gifts were well received. The kitchen is very well equipped and the whole place was absolutely spotless. A beautiful garden too, which unfortunately due to it being late October, we couldn't fully benefit from.The extra touches of washing tablets, washing up liquid, handsoap, kitchen rolls etcRead more were very welcome. I haven't always found these supplied in cottages so it was really appreciated. A short walk to the local pub with good local ale. Hide

Lovely cottage in Bothenhampton. Within easy reach of Bridport and West Bay, but far enough to have some peace and quiet. The downstairs area is quite small, but cosy. Plenty of room upstairs - bedrooms are good. Lovely garden and seating area. Two bathrooms and a laundry. Everything we needed.
