“Beautiful, charming and just what we needed”
Reviewed 5 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

A wonderful retreat for two, we found this on line, it was the first one we found, so continued to look for others. But no matter what else we found, we kept coming back to Primrose Cottage. We don't regret our decision, it is a perfect little cottage, beautifully refurbished, keeping the old character. It really helped us recharge our batteries and was very romantic. The owners have thought of everything!

“The most romantic, beautiful cottage!”
Reviewed 25 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We were very very lucky to be the first ones to stay in Primrose cottage, over the August bank holiday and could not believe how beautiful it was.

Everything you need is right there on arrival, fully stocked kitchen, beautiful welcome basket, spices etc so you feel right at home. I had told Rachel I had a gluten allergy and she very kindly put packets of gluten free biscuits in the basket, really nice little touch.

The cottage itself is probably the cutest house we have ever been in, everything has been done to an exceptionally high standard and it really does feel incredibly luxurious whilst remaining very homely and cosy. All the bed covers, curtains, rugs, pillows were specially made for the house, it seems like every little detail has been thought out to make the cottage the absolute best it could be. The bath is incredible also!

The location is great, lovely little pub round the corner, a village shop (stocking a whole gluten free range!) and another pub 10/15 minutes walk away.

Rachel and her partner are also really lovely, we got lost on the way and they very kindly came to fetch us and show us the way to the house which was really appreciated.

Take the bikes out whilst you are there, beautiful countryside all around to ride through!

I could not recommend this place highly enough - perfect for a short or long romantic break and even a honeymoon, it is incredibly special and we cannot wait to go back next year.

“Stunning luxury in North Dorset”

This cottage, situated in the village of Marnhull has been beautifully and lovingly restored. We were only the third visitors since it opened and it is absolutely stunning. The owner has created a luxury retreat for any couple who want to get away from it all. We had a weekend break here and wow, it was so calm and restful. The cottage has everything you need for a romantic mini-break. It is beautifully furnished, great attention to detail throughout, I just loved all the personal touches, like fresh flowers, welcome basket and bikes to use. Plenty of walks and cycles from the door and really well located near the village shops and pub. I can't wait to go back!
