Our weekend at Lancombe was everything we were hoping for - cosy, quiet and super relaxing! We stayed in the larger of the two gypsy caravans which my six foot two other half was more than comfortable in. Caroline made sure we had absolutely everything we needed and was always happy to answer any questions we had. The grounds are... More

A beautiful place to stay and will be back. The airstream was quirky, maybe a bit of a squeeze with 4 us but our four year old daughter couldn't have been more excited. Caroline was so helpful, the fairy woodland walk was a delight and the chickens also brought much enjoyment as well as tasty eggs. Will come and stay... More

We stayed in Asker Cottage at Lancombe, which is the largest of the properties in this incredibly pretty and comfortable holiday base in the Dorset countryside. We travelled with three children (aged 17, 10 and 8) and two large dogs, but the cottage never felt too crowded - there was a spacious living and dining area, three well-decorated bedrooms, a...

We have stayed at this amazing location 5 times over the past 4 years and it is truly wonderful. Great accommodation with all the necessities covered. A fabulous little swimming pool for some family fun, a fairy walk that my daughter adores all supported by fabulous owners who are always happy to help you.

Fantastic place to stay to explore and enjoy Dorset! Caroline and family were excellent hosts, the accommodation was perfect - for either a couple (and dog) or a family. A fairy wood was directly behind the property, with lovely paths perfect for exploration. The views over the valleys and downs were stunning and intriguing walks were possible right out the... More

My husband, myself and our 2 year old daughter spent a week in Cerne cottage. The cottage was the perfect base for our little family and the grounds idyllic. My daughter loved the Fairy Trail and never tired of feeding the chickens! The swimming pool was the deciding factor when booking and was a life saver, as when the British... More

My friend and I were looking for a base for a week's holiday in Dorset, visiting gardens. Lancombe Country Cottages fitted the bill perfectly. We stayed in Hooke Cottage and we're delighted with everything. Comfortable, lovely decor, spotlessly clean and with everything that we could possibly need. Caroline and her team could not have been more welcoming and friendly. New... More

My husband and I have just returned from a weekend break to Lancombe Country cottages for my birthday. We cannot give Caroline and the team enough praise. It really was a home from home.

We have just spent the last 4 days for my husbands birthday in the Bride cottage which was idyllic. The cottage is small but so cosy especially with the four poster bed. It is the most well equipped cottage we have ever stayed in and Caroline and Geoff are the perfect hosts. The shower wasn't performing as it should and... More
