“Perfect for our family”
Reviewed September 21, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

I had read the excellent reviews of Tincleton Lodge but it exceeded my expectations. It was perfect for our extended family that included a wheelchair user, a 3 month old baby, a toddler and five other adults. The accommodation was spacious, inviting and comfortable with lovely decor for our large group. We all enjoyed our stay in Dorset and hope to return to this beautiful county and of course Tincleton Lodge.

“Idyllic traditional and luxurious cottage ideal for family holiday”
Reviewed August 3, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

person found this review helpful

This immaculate, beautifully appointed cottage was a perfect base for a Dorset holiday. Set on scenic farmland, with a picturesque lake a short walk away, the cottage is equipped at every turn with top quality furniture and household goods. The kitchen has everything, the beds are top quality and the bathrooms luxurious. We ate most evenings in a lovely secluded garden and all four generations (from 1 to 84) had a lovely time.

“Relaxing time with grandchildren,family & friends”
Reviewed July 4, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

A lovely cottage which accommodated seven adults & two children. The farm was great for long walks, use the nature trail & walk to the river.
Jane & Charlie made us very welcome, the cottage has all the equipment for a comfortable stay.
All rooms are a very good size & standard.
A good base for visiting Weymouth,lulworth cove & Moreton Church(etched windows).
We visited the Martyr's Arms & The Thimble restaurants both very good.

“Celebration”
Reviewed May 8, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We have just returned from a wonderful stay at tincleton lodge a celebration of my mother aged 90 and my sister's special birthday. What a beautiful place to stay, Jane has paid exceptional and tasteful care for the elderly and disabled . You couldn't want for anything, all had been thought of, and has been elegantly and wonderfully furnished The surrounding land with the nature trail and the walk around pond was a lovely feature. It was so convenient for all the places of interest.. If you want peace and quiet this is the place to stay.

“Luxurious”
Reviewed February 16, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We have just returned from Tincleton Lodge and have had a truly magnificent family stay. We read the reviews before we went and were so looking forward to our stay and the house blew us away. It is superb and possibly one of the best rentals we have ever had and we’ve had a quite a few over the years. Everything about the house has been fitted out with luxury, comfort and quality in mind and when you read the comments book you can see why it has its 5 star rating. The only disappointment was we didn’t get to meet Martha, maybe next time.
We are already planning a return visit to celebrate our 30th (Pearl) wedding anniversary in September 2016.

“Lived up to everyone's expectations and more”
Reviewed December 19, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Accommodation at the lodge certainly deserved it's 5 star rating. Our party of eight friends (all very seasoned travelers) are not the easiest to impress, but all found the facilities, furnishings and the service provided by the owners, first class.

Our only regret was that it took us to the winter time to get everyone together, so we missed out on seeing all the surrounding lakes and countryside at their most beautiful. Guess we will just have to visit again.

I am so pleased that you all enjoyed your stay - of course we would welcome you back - you are right, the Lodge in the Spring is certainly a treat - the daffodils and snowdrops are a joy to see around the lake and the bluebells are stunning particularly up in the woods.

“Fabulous cosy cottage with plenty of space!”
Reviewed November 24, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Just spent a lovely weekend in Tincleton Lodge with a group friends to celebrate a birthday. The cottage is beautifully presented to a very high standard, very well equipped and warm! Spacious bedrooms with comfy beds and cosy lounge with a very warm fire which seated all 7 of us very comfortably. The kitchen is also great as it's well equipped so very easy to cook and eat in and the dining area is also lovely.
Great place to spend time indoors in the winter as it is cosy and warm and very well laid out. we had rainy weather so it was perfect for us!
The owners were very accommodating and helpful. Nice pubs nearby and not far from the sea.
