“Cosy Cottage, Kind Owners”
Reviewed February 20, 2012

This was a cosy cottage, very well stocked. The owners provided small packets of Dorset tea and even roasted coffee (a venture of their son's). Basics such as cooking oil, small container of milk and salt/pepper were aplenty. Living-Cooking-Dining area is open plan and small, but as I said, cosy and not at all uncomfortable. Cottage was very warm, the fireplace is tempermental, they did warn us, but we tried to light it anyway and the owners, though skeptical, brought us wood. The second bedroom has child-size bunk beds so if you are three adults, as we were, you might want to persuade the shortest to sleep in the bunk beds.

I have stayed at Holcombe Valley Cottages - in Robins Nest - five times, and wouldn't choose to go anywhere else in Dorset. It is a delightful place, beautifully situated and wonderfully tranquil and ideal as a base for walking - which is my main reason for visiting. All of Dorset is within easy reach, and the coast is only a couple of miles away. The cottages are of superb quality, tasteful and charming (with added touches like flowers, tea, coffee and biscuits on arrival). All products used are environmentally friendly and whatever can be recycled is. The owners, Peter and Jane, are always so welcoming and hospitable, and maintain very high standards. I can't recommend Holcombe Valley Cottages too highly.

I'm absolutely stunned to see the 'be aware' review of this cheery place. I could not of got better customer service from the providers, they were welcoming, warm people who made my stay even more enjoyably. Set in a picturesque valley in Dorset, Holcombe valley cottages really did fit the dream of a place in the country. With stunning scenery of the countryside and a pleasurable walk away from views of the sea, pack a picnic basket and your set for a perfect afternoon. A major plus is the accommodation is only a stones throw away from the typical British seaside resort of Weymouth providing a more lively atmosphere that the kids can enjoy. I stayed in Kingfisher, the four sleep accommodation, even though the kids room wasn't as spacious, ours had our very own en-suite and our open plan living and kitchen space truly fit the light and spacious area i expected, find charming views of greenery everywhere you look. I really feel that the cottages are fit for anyone looking to live the country dream.
