“SECRET,FRIENDLY, WARM AND COSY”
Reviewed October 22, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Very well presented to a high standard little cottage in the grounds of the owners property.
Very good kitchen with everything that you could need for your stay.
Everywhere was clean and tidy and well presented.
The owners are very nice and can't do enough to make your stay a pleasant one .
This was an excellent base to explore the Jurassic coast, south Dorset ,Poole with many things to do all year round. It was always nice to get back to the log fire at the end of the day.

“Relaxing stay”
Reviewed August 13, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Stayed for a few days over our wedding anniversary. The owner who lives nearby was always available and friendly but not intrusive. The cottage itself was so comfortable, just what we needed with our german shepherd. The surroundings were beautiful and so relaxing. Would definitely stay again and would recommend

“RESTFUL FEW DAYS”
Reviewed June 11, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Spent a lovely few days, relaxing in this cottage. The layout was excellent for my husband and I along with our dog. The owner was fabulous and on hand but not intrusive. Will definitely stay again. Property was in beautiful grounds in a picturesque part of the country

“Heaven on Earth!”
Reviewed July 22, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We were so happy and relaxed here! Fiona was extremely welcoming and her well-loved menagerie a delight to meet.
The cottage was an excellent base for touring around Dorset. The main coastal resorts are no more than an hour away. It is a clean and cosy little pied de terre, which we experienced in the longest heat wave in years. It was cool and very safe and quiet. We are certain it will be lovely as a winter holiday destination because it has a wood burning stove.

Highly recommended
