“Idyllic!”
Reviewed July 18, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Such a lovely and peaceful stay!

We came for a short anniversary break, and everything was perfect.

Gorgeous little apartment, beautiful surroundings, and a lovely breakfast.

Will definitely recommend!

“True hidden gem”
Reviewed June 12, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Everything about the apartment was great. Perfect size for two adults and two dogs. Wonderful location for exploring Dorset. Well furnished with lots of lovely touches. Breakfast was plentiful and varied. The honest bar, Nespresso coffee machine, flapjack and cookies were nice suprises that made our stay even more enjoyable and special. Ally goes the extra mile to ensure you have a relaxing stay.

Beautiful and peaceful setting with lots of dog walks from the front door and good pubs nearby. The accommodation is clean, beautifully decorated and a fabulous breakfast of fresh bread and cereals every morning. We had a lovely time.

“Home From Home”
Reviewed September 11, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Friendly host. Lovely accommodation. Tranquil riverside location which was nice to sit alongside and spot the wildlife. Good quality continental breakfast provided with a different loaf each day. Convenient to all the local sights and a great pub down the road. The only issue we had was the noise coming from the room above us which woke us up during the early hours, probably due to wooden floors.

I'm so sorry you were disturbed in the night. I hadn't realised the acoustics were so bad. I will make sure I do something about it as soon as possible.

“Intimate and charming waterside apartment”
Reviewed August 22, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

This small apartment in a converted water mill is perfect for a couple looking for a rural stay in Dorset. The bedroom and living room are combined - the bed is very generous and comfortable and the lounge area has a couple of armchairs and sunny windows. The kitchen dining area is very small but adequate. We cooked simple meals in the microwave. Breakfast is provided and is delicious with wholemeal bread, fresh fruit, Dorset cereals, fresh orange juice etc. There is an expresso machine, toaster and the microwave does act as a cooker. We did not have a dog but it is dog friendly. The shower room is great, with plenty of space although the water pressure is a little low but temperature is fine. Although there is no separate garden for the apartment there is a really charming riverside area with seating and a table where we had our breakfast and from where we sighted a kingfisher. Fabulous. There are walks directly from the house and easy access to the coast (20 minutes drive to Lulworth cove) although we cycled to sculpture by the lakes park. The owner is very helpful. A really lovely place which I will certainly return to if wanting to explore more of South Dorset.

Thank you for your lovely review. I saw the kingfisher again today!
I wasn't aware about the water pressure, so I'll look into that.
I look forward to your next visit!
