“Top-notch holiday home for families with young kids”
Reviewed November 23, 2013 for a stay in November 2013

This cross between a B&B and a self-catering cottage was perfect for a short break by the sea. It was really cosy, well equipped and could easily accommodate all our extended family (including two kids under 3). It's a short drive from Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove, and the heath is on the doorstop for wonderfully wild hikes. Julie is a great host and really helpful without ever imposing.

The kitchen was stocked with everything you might need and more, including food for breakfast and all the essential pots, pans and even candles. All of the things that are normally missing in a self catering place (salt, pepper, washing up liquid, condiments, etc) were all present and correct. If you need extra supplies there's a lovely little village shop, five minutes down the road (try the chicken, it's local and delicious). The kids especially loved all the toys, DVDs and going to see the animals -- there are sheep, chickens and turkeys in the garden.

The digital showers proved a bit too high-tech for us to get our heads round (they did look super snazzy though), so we resorted to baths -- I'd recommend asking Julie for a tutorial when you arrive if you prefer a shower. Also, the Wi-Fi only works in the bathroom as the router is in the main house. This wasn't a problem for us as we were out all day, but it's worth bearing in mind if you're planning to spend a lot of time on the web.

All in all, a fab choice and one we'd recommend to our friends.

Thanks for the lovely review. Point noted about the shower - will try to remember to give a quick demo in future! I hadn't advertised having wifi for the reason you mention although as you point out it does work nearer to the main house. Something to consider for next year as I'm aware more people want IT access on holiday now.
Hope to see you all again soon.

“Great house. Great location if you drive.”
Reviewed September 17, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

The house is big and comfortable clean and well equipped for 6 people. If you drive- most of the sites are 10-20 min driving. Julie left us products for preparing ourselves breakfast. She is very nice and helpful.
