“Wonderful, very dog friendly cottage”
Reviewed July 15, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

This cottage was amazing in every sense. Catering really well for dogs. Cottage is of a very high standard. Very well equipped with everything to hand.
The hot tub outside in a lovely private but secure garden. Again perfect for dogs, but equally perfect for those romantic evenings with loved ones in the hot tub or sat in the garden.

Beds were really comfortable with nice on suite bathrooms. Even bath robes are available if wanted.

Area was lovely, and the village very friendly. The local pub served good food and again very dog friendly. Locals were very welcoming and helpful.

The owners were on hand if needed and again very helpful. The owners have spent a lot of time and thought into making this property perfect for a relaxing holiday.
Will certainly be booking up again for another holiday.

We had a lovely weekend away at this cottage, which was perfectly located for our needs...however, since the photos were taken there have been some refurbs to the cottage and garden. The pics here need to be updated, the garden ones especially as it appears to have a large garden with a lot of outside space. In reality the garden is tiny and was only accessible via one of the bedrooms. Tiny one man kitchen...well equipped but tiny!!! Very comfy beds and great showers...was fine for a weekend but in my opinion too small for four adults (2 couples) and three large dogs for any longer!!!

Hi Sharon, Glad you had a lovely weekend. The refurbishments are now complete and we will be updating the photos this week. The garden is now accessible from the lounge via a new porch. We feel the garden is a good size for most peoples needs, we have simply fenced off the guest area to provide better privacy and security for dogs since the original photos were taken. Hope to see you again.

“A lovely friendly place to stay.”
Reviewed May 16, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We have had a superb stay at Water Meadows Cottage, the cottage has everything you need and the hot tub is very welcome after long walks. Dog friendly which is important to us and Digby was made very welcome. We shall return in the future. The birdsong early morning was amazing. Thankyou both for a really great stay.

The cottage had everything we needed for a relaxing break and it was clear that great attention had been paid to the overall décor and maintenance of the property.
The location was wonderful being in easy reach of the coast, the countryside and Dorchester.
It is a pity that the local pub no longer serves food but there are 2 good food shops in the village, a fish and chip shop and a smart French restaurant.

“Extremely welcoming and relaxing for all”
Reviewed May 26, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

I stayed with my wife, young son, inlaws and their dog. Mark and Karen were very welcoming nothing was too much trouble and passed on a number of tips where dogs were welcome and surrounding areas.

It is not very often you find a place where you can stay comfortably with a young child and dog but Watermeadows very much falls under this category! My wife and mother in-law spent many a relaxing evening in the hot tub and we all had a very relaxing week. Highlights for us were Weymouth and Burton Bradstock beaches with Abbotsbury farm a real highlight if you have any young ones.

Thank you Karen and Mark for a very nice relaxing holiday from us all. We just wish we could have stayed longer than the week we were there.
