“Perfect Purbeck Cottage”
Reviewed June 3, 2015 for a stay in May 2015
person found this review helpful

We enjoyed a long weekend at this wonderful cottage at the end of May with our 7 and 5 year old children.

We were very impressed with the thoughtfully luxurious furnishings and decor. The beds were all very comfy and we had everything we needed. The kitchen was well equipped and we had everything we needed to make our evening family meals.

We enjoyed exploring the local beaches and had a wonderful morning at the nearby Lulworth cove and Tyneham Village.

We will definately be returning to this wonderfully restored cottage.
