Cosy hot tub hideaway in an ideal location to explore West Dorset
A lovely cottage in a good position to explore West Dorset. Everything was immaculate and it felt very cosy and comfortable. A lovely big, comfortable sofa to lounge on, the sun comes into the living room (when it's out!) which makes it nice and bright. A very small kitchen but it had everything needed. The bedrooms are both very comfortable and both look out onto courtyard gardens. We took our four dogs and we're very grateful to find somewhere so dog friendly. I was pleased the garden was AstroTurf as we didn't have to worry about muddy paws. If you are taking a dog there are lots of walks, and it's possible to walk straight from the door, the disused railway track made a good, mud free walk. The owners have left a folder full of local walks which was very helpful. The village is very nice with a pub to eat in and there seem to be lots of local takeaways and places to order food. The hot tub was great to relax in after all that walking. We will definitely be returning.

Lovely Cottage
Had a lovely few days break, cottage comfortable, kitchen small, we mostly ate out, it was adequate. Made use of the hot tub, keeping dogs out was a challenge 🤣 they were well behaved. Lots of info available regarding the area. Would definitely recommend and stay again ( if the owners will have us 🤣)

High Quality Venue with Privacy and Good Facilities
We chose the cottage because of the ideal Dorset location just 25 minutes from the coast and with good shops in the village. It had comfortable beds and seating and an excellent power shower. Of particular note was the easy access to the cottage and the space in the rooms which made it ideal for visitors with infirmities. Allocated off road parking adjacent to the cottage was generous and easy to use. The owners from the village were available if needed and responded immediately to a query which we had. We will have no hesitation in booking again.

Dog friendly
A lovely little cottage, clean, well equipped, small but secure garden for my greyhound, located in a very nice village with walking trails on the doorstep and within easy driving distance of many attractions. Hottub was fabulous too.

Pet Friendly Cottage
The cottage is well equipped and very comfortable located in a quiet village in Dorset near the river Frome, with the secluded hot tub it made a relaxing end of the day for us. Plenty of walks near by for the dogs and places for us to see, the amazing sub-Tropical gardens at Abbotsbury is a must see as was the facinating Poundsbury near Dorchester. Weymouth worth a visit with dogs allowed on (part) of sandy beach.

Hidden gem
Going away for Christmas was daunting with 4 people and 4 dogs. The cottage was warm, very, welcoming and well stocked. All the essentials were available. Mark and Karen had thought of everything. Tucked away it felt like you were in the middle of nowhere. Hot tub luxurious. Obviously no expense spared on the whole set up. The village is lovely with easy access to Cerne Abbas giant and the beautiful village it sits in. Definitely an area of natural beauty that we will return to .
