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.

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.

“A lovely week at the Majestic!”
Reviewed 5 August 2016 for a stay in May 2016

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!

We are so pleased that you had a lovely stay at Majestic, thank you for taking the time to tell us about it. Having the animals on site sounds like a lovely treat, especially when you can spend your evenings outdoors enjoying them and the gardens, what a peaceful end to the day! We will be sure to pass your compliments along to the owners and hope that you stay again soon.
