“Beautiful Holiday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2011

We have returned to mountain cottage now for the past 3 years and each time have found it to be the most relaxing holiday. The surroundings are amazing. Being surrounded by horses, cows, goats and wild deer every day is a dream. We have taken our 3 children varying in age from 11 to 18 and each time they have been made to feel welcome by Verity, Ian and Wendy and we have all been made to feel like part of the family. The yurts are very well maintained and have a lovely cozy feel and Verity makes a point of checking on each visitor on a daily basis. I look forward to my visit for many months before i am due to go there each year and each time come home with a memory to last forever. I would highly recommend that you try a yurt holiday at least once in your life and mountain cottage is definately the place to try first.

Stayed August 2011, traveled with family

We stayed at Mountain Cottage Yurts in September and had an amazing relaxing weekend in the Dorset countryside. The yurts are in an idyllic setting, surrounded by lots of animals including chickens, horses, cows and goats. The Yurts are very nicely laid out and make a great place for a romantic weekend in an eco-style. We both slept very well and kept warm due to the wood burners which were well-stocked with wood. The family that own Mountain Cottage are friendly and made sure we were well stocked with eggs and offerings from their allotments. We will definitely be returning to enjoy the beautiful scenery and walks again.

We were really looking forward to this weekend, but felt very disappointed when we arrived. The yurts are behind a rusty barn. The website led us to believe there was a communal kitchen, but there wasn't.

The yurt itself was ok. Verity was very nice and provided lots of logs and some eggs. But ultimately the area didn't feel very cared about.

I cant rate this place high enough! Me and my wife got back yesterday from a weekend at Mountain Cottage Yurts and couldn't have had a better time. We were able to completely relax, living in the natural environment. I know a lot of people bang on about getting back to nature, but when we got there within half an hour we were completely chilled out, without any of the distractions of day to day life. The biggest worry was looking after the log fire. Lovely!!
