“good base,with easy access to all areas of Dorset”

my wife and i decided to return to Dorset and wanted somewhere that would be central to beaches and places of interest, the engine room was just the place. We have always liked the look of milton abbas with it's chocolate box houses,although the photographs make it look slightly more elegant than it actually is, some houses look quiet faded and worn.There is only a couple of negatives with regards to the engine room which was poor internet and the bed, which we found to be too firm and not very comfortable

“Comfortable, Quiet and Clean”
Reviewed October 20, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We stayed for one week in October. We were greeted by the owner, Sharon, who showed us the essential ie cooker, fridge and linen supplied. We found the cottage very warm and comfortable. The bed was very comfortable. Television easy to use and worked well, although we only watched the News items. The Welcome Pack was very handy and most useful, which consisted of Bread, Butter and Milk. There was also tea, coffee and sugar if needed. The sofa was very comfortable as was the chair. Overall we would visit again and were very satisfied with cottage. If there was one problem it was the three steps leading upto the front door which we found a little awkward to negotiate but then we are pensioners.

“beautiful village”
Reviewed August 30, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

we had a lovely stay here the bed was comfortable, the couches too, , lacks space to put clothes and food if your planning to do own cooking, maybe one of the cupboard in the room could be cleared of all the cups and saucers, after all you only need 2, and a couple of spares. also the coffee machine not necessary . the space then could be used for a microwave, more practical for when staying, don't get me wrong I would stay again, just needs a few tweaks, and yes i would still recommend to my friends

Wonderful, well equipped and comfortable holiday home in a beautiful and peaceful village. The owner was kind and helpful, and little touches like the welcome pack were very much appreciated. A great location.
