What a lucky find. Lisa, Jeremy and their boys are the perfect hosts - nothing is too much trouble and they made us feel welcome and at home straight away. Our bedroom was huge, beautifully furnished and the ensuite was to die for - some of the old books were very tempting too! Breakfast was a feast with home made jams, yoghurt and fresh eggs and we were offered mutliple cups of tea and coffee whenever we appeared.
The location is quite quiet - unless someone upsets the geese, that is, right at the end of a narrow lane. The country surrounds you and the beauty of this part of Dorset is well worth a visit. We will definitely be back some time if only to see if Lisa finished the knitting!
