Lovely cottage a perfect place to stay for 2 people. Everything you needed was provided, couldnt fault it. Location was ideal for exploring the area and its proximity to Wareham was ideal. Lovely walk along the river only found it by asking a passerby. Info in the house about this would have been useful.
