“Little House with a big heart”
Reviewed October 25, 2016 for a stay in October 2016
people found this review helpful

Quiet location
Large sprawling village, The Little House is located near the centre by the General Store incorporating the Post Office (which is open from 8am 7 days a week, quality butchers and hairdressers.
Everything provided was of good quality.
There was plenty of hot water. Central heating quick and efficient. Poor mobile signal but Wi-Fi made up for it.
The upstairs bedroom has an en-suite shower; the downstairs bedroom has a separate shower room.
Friendly owners (Bill and Netty), who live next door, came to see us on the first evening checking everything was alright. Bill also came to see us on the last evening to make sure we had had an enjoyable stay at their cottage and there were no problems. The locals were always friendly.
The cottage had 1 car parking space allocated to it but further free parking was available in the adjoining village public car park. The kitchen looked out on to the car park while the lounge and bedrooms overlooked the small rear garden. Plenty of walks from the front door.
Good location to visit National Trust houses, Haines Motor Museum, Sherborne, Bridport, Weymouth, Longleat and Stonehenge.
