A spacious but cosy cottage. Very clean and unlike many other places I have stayed in for work the cottage was always warm. Really conveniently placed for getting around to visit different places. Was made to feel really welcome and the owners could not have been nicer or more helpful. I was nearly put off booking from the one bad review on here but thought well it’s only one and the others looked good so decided to try it. So glad I did. I have already pre booked for a longer break this year. Well done guys you smashed it.
found the place clean,tidy and in good condition everything worked and the reception on arrival was wonderful. A good place to stay. Cant relate to the previous review .
Disgusting dirty cottage. We spent 2 hours degreasing the kitchen and washing crockery before we could make a cup of tea. The place stank and the beds were dreadful. The bathroom was a hive of filth. We book for a week and stay two nights all going home with bad backs due to the thin mattresses on the beds. They have a lot of animals and the cottage smelt like they over wintered them in there. The noise from the main road traffic is hurendous and the stairs are certainly not child friendly.
Stayed for a week very relaxing comfortable cottage just outside shaftsbury.the owners shell and rich are very friendly helpful people.the cottage has everything you need well equipped kitchen cosy living room diner two bedrooms nice bathroom with shower over bath.couldn't fault the majestic in any way.thanks shell and rich for a very enjoyable and memorable stay
We stayed at the Majestic with our 6 year old daughter in May half-term and we were then joined later in the week by our friends and their 6 year old (and little puppy). The owners Shel and Rich could not be more welcoming and nothing was too much trouble for them. The cottage has lovely paddocks at the back where you can sit in the lovely gardens overlooking the ponies and donkeys and watch the sunset. The owners very kindly took the girls out in the paddocks to meet their animals which the girls obviously loved! We were very lucky with the weather and even managed a lovely bbq on the last night which made a perfect end to a lovely week.
There is a great pub/restaurant nearby (the Kings Arms in East Stour) which serves excellent (and very reasonably priced) food. We also took a drive out to Sherborne Castle (about 20 min drive away) and had a lovely day there walking around the Castle and the beautiful grounds.
We were all sad to say goodbye to the Majestic and to Shel and Rich (and their animals) and the girls (and Bobby the puppy) were all delighted with the little treat they were given as we left. Thank you Shel & Rich!
