“Beautifully presented cottage with all you could need for a quiet week in the country”
Reviewed September 25, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

My husband and I stayed here with our 5 month old daughter for a week. The cottage had everything we needed for a very comfortable and cosy stay in the countryside. The location of the cottage means we really did feel away from it all, but it is within a reasonable driving distance of many attractions for days out, such as Swanage, corfe castle, Weymouth, and many coastal villages.
The cottage is beautifully presented, could not fault it! Very spacious, with a gorgeous wood burning stove, and big kitchen. The welcome pack of fizz and chocolate was also well received after a long drive to Dorset , thank you Jane!
The garden was huge and we look forward to future visits when our daughter is running around so we can really make the most of it.
The farm that rose cottage is located on is a great place to stay with young children, to be able to get outdoors and see the cows or wildlife around the lake, and we absolutely cannot wait to return.
Thank you for a wonderful holiday.

“Great escape”
Reviewed February 19, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

A fantastic cottage for a girly weekend away - well equipped and plenty of attention to detail. Warm and cosy with a bottle of fizz to greet us - a thoughtful touch thanks Jane. Really handy to be able to agree a shorter rental. Close to coast and Hardy country - Sherborne worth a visit - less impressed with Athelhampton House but expect the gardens worth a visit in Spring/Summer.

So pleased you had such a lovely weekend in Rose Cottage - there is nothing more enjoyable than sitting by a roaring fire with a glass of fizz and a best friend to natter to on a cold January weekend!!

“Surpassed our high expectations!”

My sister and I hired Rose Cottage for a week as a present for our parents - we therefore had high hopes and we weren't disappointed! The cottage is beautiful, immaculate and very homely but with so many extras that make it a real treat to reside in - the kitchen, complete with AGA, provides a real hub and the sitting room has a gorgeous wood burner. I cannot emphasise enough how much charm and original character the property has, which the owners have tastefully preserved during their refurbishment. The grounds are beautiful and provided us with lots of stunning walks, whilst overall, the location was well-placed for trips further afield. The owners were very welcoming and dealt with several queries and requests before we'd even arrived. After one fabulous week we are already keen to return, so I would highly recommend Rose Cottage.

Thank you for your Review and I am so pleased that Rose Cottage was everything that you hoped for. It was our aim when renovating to make it not only luxurious but also comfortably homely and Guests appear to feel relaxed as soon as entering the front door. I think the Aga and the Inglenook fireplace with woodburner all make it beautifully cosy after a brisk walk around the meadows and Nature trail on the farm. Please do come again.

“Beautiful location which was cosy and spacious for a relaxing break in the Dorset countryside.”

We stayed at Rose Cottage twice in the winter, each time inviting friends to stay. We found the setting idyllic and the cottage cosy, warm and very comfortable. The welcome from our hosts was warmly sincere and unobtrusive. The cottage was peaceful, well-furnished to a high standard and ideal for exploring the Dorset countryside. It suited our needs for country-style self-catering away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

We are so delighted that you will be returning again next year. Rose Cottage has such a wonderful ambiance and it was always our aim to make it a home from home experience for our Guests to enjoy with added luxury to the wonderful original features. We have now finished the new tennis court which will be up and running for next year. Also we have extended the Nature Trail and a Guest spotted a Kingfisher last weekend down by the lake which made his holiday!
