“a pleasant cottage”
Reviewed July 3, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

We love Dorset & found this cottage to be reasonably placed for visiting for the coast & gardens open to visitors.
The cottage was fitted out in very good taste & was a credit to the owners Laurence & Michael who made us very much at home.The garden was beautiful & many birds including greater spotted woodpeckers & nuthatches came regularly to the bird feeders.

Lovely accommodation in a beautiful location. The house was perfect, clean and well equipped. The stunning garden was ideal for al fresco dining as we had amazing weather! (Laurence and Michael work really hard to maintain it's beauty) We had our 3 year old with us and he loved it.
Laurence and Michael were friendly, very welcoming and knowledgeable of the surrounding areas.
The house is 15 minutes from West Bay where you can't go wrong for eating out, beaches and scenery.
We would happily return to this property!

“Excellent cottage all-around”
Reviewed May 1, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We spent 2 relaxing weeks in this great cottage and can only recommend it! The cottage À Côté is very clean and very well equipped, has a lovely bathroom and a welcoming atmosphere. The owners Laurence and Michael do a great job and are really kind hosts. On sunny afternoons we enjoyed the terrace and watched the bird activity in the nice garden. Beaminster is a strategic location for walks and fossil hunting on the Jurassic Coast, for visits to gardens, for day-trips to Corfe Castle, to Wells and Glastonbury Abbey ...

Cannot fault this chalet at all, attention to detail is amazing and the owners Laurence and Michael are such a lovely couple, who will drop everything at a moments notice should you need anything!
Thank you both for your great hospitality
This superb chalet Is set in a Pretty garden with many visiting birds and on top of this we had some lovely sunshine to sit outside and enjoy it.
Lovely village with super restaurants just a 5 minute walk away all set in a beautiful part of Dorset.

Highly recommended. Laurence and Michael have done an amazing job decorating and equipping the cottage at an extremely high standard. They were very accommodating and helpful. The cottage is a 3 minute walk to the shops. The garden is beautiful. A lovely part of the country and we will come back and stay again. Thank you for your very kind hospitality.

“Faultless”
Reviewed October 20, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

My husband and I have just returned from a short holiday here. The hosts were excellent - nothing was too much trouble. The accommodation was modern, clean, warm and exceedingly well equipped Good location adjacent to the town centre which meant free parking as we left the car safely parked at home! We will definitely be returning in the not too distant future.
