Lovely comfortable cottage in a beautiful area. Great welcome pack.
Mrs Peacock May 2022
This is a lovely, warm, comfortable cottage in a really quiet location. Don't be put off by it being roadside - hardly any traffic at all. So much to do nearby and some lovely walks without using the car at all. We would definitely return. It was great to see a holiday cottage with an air source heat pump too. Thank you for a lovely stay.
Mrs Mayes March 2022
This is a lovely well equipped, comfortable and tastefully decorated property in an excellent location for accessing the best of Dorset.
Mrs Botha December 2021
We really enjoyed our stay at Tolpuddle Cottage! It was the perfect last minute family getaway after covid cancelled all our previous plans for abroad. The kids enjoyed the games that were available to them and visiting all the wonderful places so easy to get to from the cottage.

Lovely property that is well equipped.

Overall very comfortable.
Ms Daruvala September 2021
First booking with Classic Cottages and impressed with their high standards and friendly booking staff. Highly recommend this cottage. Quiet location; you can follow the history of the Tolpuddle Martyrs on an audio trail through the village. Perfectly situated for trips to the Jurassic coast, Milton Abbas, Dorchester. A very welcoming clean thatched cottage with high quality as new furnishings, tastefully decorated, very comfortable beds and soft leather sofas. Fabulous arrival hamper of milk, local beer, wine, biscuits and teas/coffees. Little patio area for morning coffee in the sunshine. Good safe parking space behind the cottage.

We had a wonderful stay at Tolpuddle. The cottage had everything we needed, it was so well equipped and it was spotlessly clean. The beds were lovely and comfortable and the parking was very easy which is a rarity in this area. It’s a fantastic base for getting to a range of lovely beaches and there are great restaurants and shopping options nearby. We have already booked to come back next year!

Mrs Wain August 2021
A lovely property that was clean and well equipped. Car needed for shops and restaurants, as there is nothing in Tolpuddle itself other than residential properties. Many coastal places within an hour (Weymouth, Lyme Regis, Swanage).
Mrs Clappison May 2021
A beautiful cottage with a classic style but the luxury of being nearly new, in a stunning rural location.
Mr Chaplin May 2021
The cottage was immaculate and comfortable as described on the website. Plenty of parking. A great base for exploring the area. Would definitely return.
Mrs Hooker October 2020
The cottage is beautiful, providing us with everything we needed. It's very welcoming, cosy and very comfortable. The location of the cottage was ideal for walks and places to visit.
Mrs Retallack September 2020
A great location, as the cottage is so near to many Dorset places we wanted to visit.
Mrs Ainsbury September 2020
We had a cosy time in Dorset, very relaxed and good fun. We followed many of the recommendations, which were really helpful ideas of what to see and do and the cottage exceeded our expectations.
Mrs Gilbey August 2020
Beautiful cottage in a quiet location. 30-40 minutes drive to nearest beaches. Car essential. Excellent customer service from Classic during our stay.
Mrs Ducker July 2020
A nicely decorated property in a convenient location. Lovely spacious bedrooms and plenty of toilets and bathrooms.
Mr Thompson July 2020
A wonderfully furnished cottage that had been very thoroughly cleaned and provided a homely, comfortable base to explore Dorset!
Mrs Fowler August 2019
We absolutely loved our holiday in Tolpuddle cottage. It is a beautiful cottage and was well equipped and beautifully furnished. It was totally suitable for me with my 4 older children. The location was perfect for most of the major attractions being within a half hour drive of most. The pub in Puddletown provided the best food for our tastes. The Martyrs Inn was within walking distance and was pleasant enough although the food quality was adequate.
Mrs Waugh May 2019
We thought the location of the cottage was excellent. The peace and quiet of a village, but so many places within very easy reach. My granddaughter loved the play area, virtually over the road from the cottage. Highlights of our week. Monkey World, an amazing "rescue" centre for primates, they do a fantastic job. We enjoyed the Swanage to Corfe Castle steam railway. Excellent afternoon tea at Athelhampton House, literally just down the road, can recommend the Dorset Apple cake! We loved Dorchester and Weymouth has an excellent safe beach for children. We did not do all that we had planned,so will have to return and would certainly consider staying at Tolpuddle cottage again.

The cottage certainly offers the best of both worlds with plenty to do in the area but a lovely peaceful retreat to return to in the evenings. We think a second visit is a must, especially for another slice of that famous Dorset Apple Cake! Tanya, Customer Support
Mr Tompkins March 2019
Cottage was great (apart from heating); super king bed was nice, location is great, Netflix was available and enjoyed that, it is really quiet there, Dorset is wonderful. Athelhampton discount card was very useful, it is a great place.
The heating isnt a flexible heating system and not really suitable for holiday let where different people have different ideas about how warm a room should be in cold weather.

We're delighted that you enjoyed your holiday in Tolpuddle Cottage and liked the lovely Dorset location. We're really sorry that the cottage took a bit of time to warm up for you - underfloor heating can be a little slower to react but the housekeeper will make sure all is cosy for arrival in future, and guests can adjust the temperature thereafter on the room thermostat. Thanks so much for letting us know. Kari, Customer Support
Mrs Blyde September 2018
Lovely quiet cottage in a lovely village. Great pub within walking distance. Lovely comfy bed and beautifully furnished. Lovely soft towels also. Highly recommend. Thought it was a bit expensive though.

The cottage was lovely, very well equipped and modern, a home away from home, a lovely base to explore Dorset. We definitely recommend Tolpuddle cottage for a lovely break away.
Miss France September 2017
This cottage had far more in the way of equipment than any other in which we've stayed. Very well equipped and spotlessly clean
