“Excellent, cottage, location and break away”
Reviewed 21 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Superb cottage , with all you could need for a relaxing break - all mod cons, home from home.

Brilliant location with easy reach of superb dog friendly beaches and excellent seafood restaurants.

Great place to stay, but sadly not as dog friendly as we thought. We didnt know that the door to the garden was upstairs & our dogs found it really difficult to go up the stairs especially as they are open tread.

Glad you enjoyed your stay and sorry the dogs had difficulty with the stairs. There is also access to the gardens via the gate next to the cottage which is much easier for dogs, sorry you didn't spot this we will put up a sign so the access is made clearer. Hope to see you again.

“Peaceful and relaxing”
Reviewed 17 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Amminaties very good and comfortable furnishings. Furnished to a high spec and a fabulous extra large bed. Lovely to sit in an evening and be able to watch a decent sized TV in comfort.
Nice little seating area on both sides of the building. Very safe and secure for your animal to roam. Situated in a nice village with shop and pub and decent chippy all within walking distance. On the whole an excellent stay.

Lovely place to stay, well equipped, modern, clean cottage with large bedroom ( comfy bed & good shower ) dog was as welcome as us - bowls, treats, towels, blankets & toys . It's such a good base for exploring West Dorset.
Village shop not far, The Fox & Hounds just up the road & walks on your doorstep. 15 - 20mins & you're on the coast.
Really enjoyed our stay, would recommend this fab cottage :0)
