    "Lovely comfortable cottage very well located. Great helpful housekeepers who were very accommodating too. Fantastic food at The Greyhound Pub in the village too."
    Confirmed Guest – 19 Mar 2018
    "We were not informed of the road closure in the village which means a seriously long detour to get around.http://s3.spanglefish.com/s/37331/documents/news/road-closure-rev.jpgOtherwise everything was fine."
    Confirmed Guest – 9 Mar 2018
    "Beautiful cottage very clean and very well kept. However there was no mention in the description of the restricted head height on 2 of the doors and on the stairs and my 72 year old husband who is 6' 4" knocked his head several times and actually knocked himself out on one occasion. Had this been mentioned in the description then I would not have booked the cottage"

    "The property was exceptional. I would say that the instruction booklet was hard to locate. Also we had to phone to find out where the logs were as there were no instructions about this"
    Confirmed Guest – 5 Jan 2018
    "A very cosy and character-full cottage for a winter holiday. The kitchen is well equipped, the bedrooms comfortable, and bathrooms have good fittings and are functional. The setting is quiet but close to a great gastropub (The Greyhound) and a short drive from plenty of sights. We loved the touches such as the fire ready to light, Christmas tree, and of course the welcome hamper."

    "Well designed cosy cottage.Needs a brochure of advice on local information.The step halfway down the hall is a bit of a hazard as very invisible."
    Confirmed Guest
    "The television was old and therefore the sound quality was very poor and so we could barely use the tv. The heating was controlled by another house and we were cold at times (It was a very cold weekend). Otherwise it was a beautiful cottage in a lovely village - everything else was excellent."
    Confirmed Guest
    "Cottage was good. On arrival the cottage had clearly been empty the previous week and was cold. We telephone the owners as the control of the heating was not in the cottage. The owners came and switched on but it took at least 24 hours to get the place back up to temperature. No kindling for the inglenook fire. The owner found us enough for two fires and we had to go into Dorchester for fire lighters and more kindling. Logs found behind garage but quite heavy to get into the cottage. Welcome basket OK. We have seen better with RR. All other things very pleasant. We gather the shower is to replaced. At the moment it is useless as many other guests have commented. With an injured leg it was impossible to get into the bath let alone shower. A pity for such a pleasant property. Just needs face lift and better local management."

    "cottage was well maintained except could not find firelighters or kindling for the 2nd and 3rd nights"

    "Let down by the trendy bath as it was too high to use even though we are fit over seventies!! Housekeeping very good. Cottage delightful. Attention needs be paid to accessibility of bathrooms. Walk in showers would meet the needs of every age group. Otherwise draw clients attention to the amenities."
    Confirmed Guest
    "Housekeeping excellent, cottage lovely but bed too small and there is absolutely nothing except for a pub in the village. no shops at all. Had to drive miles every day. footpaths short as major roads intersect and are uncrossable. Will not be staying again."

    "Apart from a few adjustments. No info on where logs are kept,dressing table seat would not go amiss, settee not very comfortable. Loo brush and holder badly needs replacing. These few things would make it even better it does cost a lot of money need to be looked into. Mary Blake"

    "A very pleasant stay in a lovely cottage. Good walks and views. Sculpture by the lakes at Pallington is an amazing place, go on a bright sunny day. Food at the Greyhound is excellent, just a few minutes walk and take the torch!"

    "We loved the cottage and the beautiful village, it was a wonderful romantic Christmas for us. I wanted to take the log fire home with us - what an amazing fireplace! The Greyhound is a must - the food amazing and the complimentary first drink on Christmas morning a lovely touch. We will be back."

    "Lovely cottage. Our second time here this year and as lovely as we remembered. Cosy pretty cottage in a beautiful village. Looking forward to our next visit."
    Confirmed Guest
    "Only here for 2 nights, unfortunatley, but a perfect short retreat in Dorset. The cottage is near perfect and in such a beautiful village. We enjoyed a visit to Athelhampton House and had lunch at the Smugglers Inn, followed by coastal walks to Ringstead Bay. The latter was much more peaceful and unspoilt than Lulworth Cove, though the walk from the cove to Durdle Door was worthwhile. Thank you, we will be back. P&H, Berkshire"

    "We have really enjoyed our stay in this cosy, cute little cottage in its beautiful village setting. It has gone too quickly. The wonderful sunshine all week has been lovely. We have visited Abbotsbury, Lulworth Cove, Durdle Door (and Fossil Forest) Corfe Castle and Linell Beach. Walked parts of the South West Coastal path around Osminter (Smugglers Inn at Osmington Mills enchanting!). Sherbourne and many walks and cycle rides around these areas from the door. We could recommend all of these places for visiting and the Greyhound Inn. Its good for food. A lovely, relaxing stay. A&K, Sheffield"

    "A wonderful location and a superb cottage - thank you very much indeed. Very comfortable beds. Sydling St Nicholas is charming. Lulworth Cove, Cerne Abbas all worth visiting. Good Waitrose in Dorchester. Loved the heather in the garden. A fabulour weekend. W&E, London"

    "A lovely cottage for 2. Shame the weather meant that we could only enjoy the weather for a couple of days. Hive Beach cafe is a must, but get there early - nice potter around Abbotsbury and Sherbourne. West Bay nice for Broadchurch fans. Nice walks around Hardy's Cottage and Lulworth. Athelhampton worth a visit too midweek. Greyhound Inn, lovely, great food and lovely staff. A lovely part of the world for a respite and relax. A&N, London"
    Confirmed Guest
    "We enjoyed the cosy cottage very much; especially when we returned tired from our daily tours. The coast walks were fantastic - Golden Cap - Lulworth Cove - Durdle Door. We recommend a visit to Minterne Magna (house and garden), nice walk from Cerne Abbas to Minterne. A must to the subtropical garden in Abbotsbury - View Point! Good food in Dorchester New Italian. G&W, Bavaria"
