“Perfect Quiet Retreat”
Reviewed 7 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

We stayed here with 2 friends and their dog last week. The property was clean and tidy on arrival. Although the other properties are in close vicinity we hardly saw anyone else the whole time we were there. We were out exploring Dorset all day every day though!

We absolutely loved the nature hide - we saw the badgers on numerous occasions (including on the lawn). The fishing lake was a nice touch too - I was up early most days having great fun catching the small mirror and common carp.

I'm sure we'll be back in the future and we've already recommended it to friends and family.

“Clean with nice views from cottage”
Reviewed 14 October 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We stayed here for a week with two young children and were generally very pleased. The cottage is the smallest of several which make up the Bookham Court complex (a barn conversion?) but still spacious. The rooms were clean and the view from the back of the house across a communal lawn to fields and wooded hills was splendid. The only slight downside is the outside space allocated to the cottage is bordered by a six foot high fence giving plenty of privacy - but obviously no view at all.
The owners have set up a wildlife hide five minutes walk up a hill from the house with CCTV of various nesting holes for birds (and badgers!) and nearby feeders - it was a good effort but the hut was neglected with cobwebs everywhere. Seems the owners have rather lost interest in it - although they did still provide seeds for the birds regularly and we got some great views of feeding woodpeckers.
Little Coombe is pretty much in the middle of nowhere and a car is essential. However, as mentioned, while being remote, at the same time the cottage is one of several in the same place which means there will be other holidaymakers nearby. So you don't really 'get away from it all' - but some visitors may welcome the company.
