Warm Welcome from owners with home made cakes, milk, sausages , butter and bread all waiting for us which was a lovely gesture. Cottage is well placed to explore Dorset and we thoroughly enjoyed the homely feel to the cottage. Three toilets for 2 bedrooms - wonderful! Well equipped and clean. Particularly recommend for those with a disability as all aids (and a wet room) in place, including a ramp. These facilities must be rare in holiday cottages.

Barbridge Cottage is well worth a visit, aware of the fact that in the distance, there is the background noise of the traffic on the main road. But in the evenings - this is compensated by the peace of the surrounding countryside and views. We have booked to go again.

June 2017

Really lovely cottage well cared for , and lots of nice touches such as welcome pack and produce from the area.

May 2017

The cottage is in a lovely spot, so handy for not only the coast, but also for exploring inland. It is so peaceful, and yet not far from all amenities. It's a gem. Having been to many cottages over the years, this is definitely our favourite. It feels like a home rather than a rental property which is not always the case, and the welcome given by the owners, Justin & Sally Walton is so friendly, helpful and attentive - nothing is too much trouble. This was our fourth visit, and we hope we will be back for many more. We love it!

This is a superb cottage with friendly welcoming owners. A real home from home - we love it! It is our favourite holiday cottage having been going to cottages for over 30 years.
