“Lovely holiday, great location”
Reviewed July 12, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

person found this review helpful

We had a truly memorable holiday. The cottage was just perfect for us and clean, compact and comfortable. Kitchen well equiped and good sized for a family. The location is just great and handy being so near to the Rodwell trail, for both Weymouth and Portland. Having a little beach so close by was just great.
Of course the lovely weather helped. I so enjoyed walking down to the very pleasant and interesting Old Castle Grounds each evening for a peaceful time of reflection before bed and after my grandchildren were tucked up!!
We are hoping we can return next year.

Lovely house perfect for families well equipped and spotless. Great to have the 2 bathrooms. Lovely views and great location near beautiful beaches. The old railway track behind the house was perfect to take my young daughter cycling for the first time. Thanks also 4 prosecco!!!

“Lovely view”
Reviewed May 8, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Great holiday cottage. Close to beach and amenities with a lovely view on Portland island. Fully accommodated, clean and quiet. We had a lovely week with our teenaged sons and enjoyed the Jurassic coast, countryside and lovely villages. Just one minor setback: the flushing of the toilet upstairs.

Thank you for your lovely feedback and for looking after our house. We hope you come and stay again. I'm pleased to confirm that the tricky toilet was completely replaced last week with the added advantage of an extra shelf for guests' bathroom bits and bobs.

“Fabulous House”
Reviewed October 31, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

The House was fabulous, in a lovely area with private access to beach, which grand children loved. Handy for everything, either to walk or get the bus into Weymouth, We all enjoyed the holiday very much. The weather was amazing all the time we were there, and would definitely go again.

“Clean but not worth the price.”

Lovely spacious, clean and modern house. However for the rental price would expect use of a dryer, had to go to the laundrette a few times. Tv signal is non existent. However iplayer is on the lounge tv. Private access to beach is good, however the beach is covered in glass and both our children cut thier feet during the stay. Locals still very much use the closed public access route to the beach and leave large amounts of litter on the beach. No one seems to clean. We were woken by youths on several occasions 1/2am coming up from the beach shouting up the road. Often people parked up camper vans and stayed on the road in front of the property disappearing towards the trees with toilet rolls in hand. One evening we were woken by our car alarm, looking out the window we saw kids/teens runing up the road - in the morning we discovered they had taken our car badge and scratched the car in the process. There is a beach at the end of the road although still littered it is of a better quality sand and no glass. To top it off we received a message on our return to Say we had taken a tea towel (Sainsbury label and very old) it did get caught in our washing so I returned it with a whole new pack as well costing me nearly £10. Considering the holiday cost £2200 I found this rather petty. It was comfortable accommodation - but really very over priced.

Thank you for your feedback. We aim to be very competitively priced for high quality accommodation and I’m pleased to see you gave us 5 star ratings for service, comfort and cleanliness. Our off season prices are under £500 per week including all booking fees. We don’t list a tumble dryer on our facilities list (we do provide a clothes drying rack) but, as you stayed for two weeks, we changed all your linens and towels in the middle of your holiday. The TV signal can be weather-dependent and although there is is live TV through the SmartHub we are now installing satellite TV as a result of your feedback.

This is normally a very quiet residential area so we are sorry that your stay was disrupted by badly behaved youths and horrified that your car was slightly damaged. Although we have never had any problems with our cars we can understand this was upsetting. I know local volunteers work hard to keep the beach rubbish free (unfortunately the Council doesn’t collect rubbish here) but like all beaches, there can occasionally be glass left on or washed onto the beach and it seems you were unlucky.

We are sorry you are upset about the tea towels. We just asked if you had by mistake taken them as we noticed they were missing, but we did not ask you to send us new ones. This was a kind gesture on your part and I’m sorry you felt obliged to do this.
