I was drawn to this property by the name of the village! and the property did not disappoint. It has been the owner's home and you feel its charm the minute you arrive. There are flowers and a bench by the front door and you can sit and look up the valley at the sheep, the swallows wobbling on the telegraph lines, just soaking up the sun.
Inside the furnishings are chosen for comfort and the colours soothe. Original water colours on the walls, pretty china and thoughtful touches, such as flowers, fruit and cakes add to your sense of welcome.
We arrived wrung out, and very quickly wound down to relaxed blobs.
Five minutes' walk up the lane brings you to this pretty village with a friendly pub, good beer and great food so neither of us had to drive to go out - always a bonus.
You can walk to the fleet, or along the coast; beautiful views in all directions.
Dorset is surely a county that got left behind but in a good way. We didn't miss the road noise or the aircraft back home. The owls hooted at night and the sheep in the field were soothing to admire.
Hilary's warm welcome was genuine; she was on hand to offer help and information but didn't intrude.
The only tiny drawback is the lack of headroom around the bed which is why we didn't give it a five star.
Try it, we don't think you will be disappointed.

“Beautiful cottage in picturesque surroundings”
Reviewed August 24, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Grooms cottage is a beautiful little cottage set in a beautiful little village, we took our 16 month old daughter who loved the pet sheep kept by the owner, the cottage was perfect for our daughter as she could run around the big yard where the sheep are kept, also there was lots of things to do just a short drive away.Hilary was really helpful with any questions we had too, definitely would come back again

“A lovely cottage in a lovely location”
Reviewed July 1, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

The location of Grooms cottage was ideal for us. There was total peace and quiet, it was off the beaten track but only a couple of minutes in the car from the village pub which provided some really good food and it was only about 15 minutes away from busy Weymouth. The owner has thought of everything to provide for guests staying at the cottage. The bed was very comfy. The only drawback is the bed is in an apex and you have to be careful how you get in and out of it. Also there isn't a stand up shower, again because of a slope in the roof. However, these are minor drawbacks and I would certainly recommend staying here. The owner lives in the next door cottage and was very respectful of giving us privacy but very helpful if we needed anything. Yes, if you're thinking of booking this cottage I'd say go ahead and do it.

Cozy little house in a green surroundings. We enjoyed our breakfast and meals outside which are often accompanied by a pheasant. The fireplace in the living room creates a comforting atmosphere. The kitchen is very well stuffed. Hilary was always very helpful. To explore the Jurassic Coast was more than interesting. The fleet can be reached by walking. We have enjoyed our stay very much and can strongly recommend the accommodation.

Thank you so much for your review. The pheasant has now brought her chicks down to eat and drink in the yard. I am so pleased you had a great holiday at the Grooms Cottage, if only all my guests were so lovely.

“a most memorable occasion”

I recently stayed at Groom's Cottage and had the most relaxing, peaceful holiday I have ever had. The countryside on this Jurassic coastline is stunning and this little chocolate box cottage is nestled down with it's own private driveway where you can sit and gaze upon the field of sheep. The wild life is abundant and I frequently watched the deer from my bedroom window. It is a home from home with everything you could possibly need to make your stay a most memorable occasion and I will definitely be back!
