“Excellent , a real home from home, loved it.”
Reviewed April 3, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

A really well furnished and equipped traditional house in a fabulous small town. Well located close to the town with its array of shops, restaurants bakeries and pubs. Even a small but well stocked Coop. Parking on site. Close to the sea, and in the country, lots of lovely walks for our lively dog Rufus. Great communications with John and Elaine, and whilst we didn't need them for anything it was good to know they were just a phone call away. Beautifully clean and warm. Secure garden for Rufus a big plus as he loves being outside.
Two lovely and sensibly priced meals at the Red Lion, and all the staff were great. Pub was dog friendly as was The Greyhound.
Can't fault Albert Cottage, and will be booking again when we can sort out our diaries.
Thanks John and Elaine.

“Friend's 50th Birthday Weekend”
Reviewed November 26, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We spent a wonderful weekend here in Albert Cottage, so celebrate our friend's 50th birthday. The cottage was beautifully decorated, very inviting and well equipped with everything we needed. We enjoyed being able to walk into the little town of Beaminster, for coffee and a browse around the local shops. The short drive down to West Bay was definitely worth a trip, made even more enjoyable by the sunshine and a walk along the cliff tops.
In Beaminster, there were a number of local places to eat, and we enjoyed a good meal in Brassica.
Lyme Regis is only a 25 minute drive, so we spent Sunday morning there before heading home to Hampshire.
Overall a wonderful place to stay especially as Elaine and John are such generous, welcoming people! Thank you!! Look forward to returning soon!!

“Beautiful, well equipped and ideally situated”
Reviewed October 30, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

The cottage is big, beautifully furnished and very well equipped. Ideal with children (plenty of room to run around) and dogs (no carpets and a a secured garden), it is 2 minutes away from tea houses, pubs and restaurants so there was plenty to do even on a rainy day (excellent lunch at the very welcoming Red Lion). As it is close to the coast we were able to go to a new beach every day and also visited the beautiful Forde Abbey nearby. A fantastic stay!

“Welcoming cottage accommodation”
Reviewed September 9, 2015 for a stay in October 2014

We enjoyed our stay at Albert Cottage with our two dogs.

It is ideally located near the centre of Beaminster, a short walk away from local shops and amenities. Beaminster itself also makes an excellent base for exploring the surrounding area.

The property itself has been renovated to a good standard whilst maintaining its traditional charm. The kitchen is well equipped and there is a separate dining area in addition to the living room. Having one small dog with a propensity for escaping, we really appreciated the secure garden. We visited in Autumn but can see that it would make a great space to enjoy eating outside in the summer.

The master bedroom was our favourite room as it manages to be spacious and cosy. The bathroom is clean and modern.

“A wonderful cottage”
Reviewed July 18, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

A lovely and relaxing cottage, ideal for dogs as the garden is fully enclosed, our 2 dogs really enjoyed themselves. The cottage has everything you need and is just a short stroll to the centre of Beaminster, also ideally located for easy access to the coast. A definite must for a return next year. the owners are very friendly and cannot do enough for you.

“An ideal destination”
Reviewed May 7, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We had a wonderful time at Albert Cottage. The house is very clean, comfortable, and fully equipped. Our daughters enjoyed the enclosed garden and the toys, books and games provided by the owners, who were really nice and friendly, like all the people we have met in Dorset. We will definitely come back!

“We struck gold!”
Reviewed April 25, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

A very last minute booking and how lucky we were there was availability at this delightful cottage. Last minute emails and phone calls were dealt with very promptly. John, the owner could not have been more helpful. The small town of Beaminster is a perfect setting and near to the beautiful coast. The cottage itself is very homely and fantastically equipped with everything you will need. Having a washing machine is a great bonus too. The master bedroom is huge and the bed very comfortable. The second bedroom is compact, which might be a problem for two couples. However my son and his wife joined us for the weekend and there was plenty of space in the room for them.The garden is lovely with two seating areas and we were blessed with unusually good weather to be able to make use of them. Having little extras provided like loo rolls, washing up liquid, hand soap is very useful when self catering. Not to mention milk, tea and coffee for when you arrive. Wifi is another bonus. So all in all you would struggle to find better and feel comfortable and relaxed in a holiday cottage. We needed a tonic and that's exactly what we got.
