This is a wonderful cottage, very spacious but cosy and warm. The location is fabulous, quite isolated and surrounded by fields and woods, so if you want to be near civilization it’s probably not for you. If you want peace and quiet and to be away from it all however it can’t be beaten. You need a car so that you can get to nearby villages, pubs, supermarket etc but there are also lovely walks from the doorstep.
The cottage is extremely well equipped with everything you’re likely to need in the kitchen. The central heating is very effective and there is the option of an open fire too. The beds are lovely and comfortable and there is plenty of hot water.
All in all I would not hesitate to recommend this cottage and we are very likely to stay there again.

we loved the setting of this house and we couldn't have wished for a better venue. The house was very toasty - fantastic central heating. Would love to visit it in the summer.

ideal for someone who wants something a bit special.

Old Down Cottage is a place of absolute silence and recreation. I spent hours in front of the house or on the terrace hearing nothing but buzzing bees and twittering birds.
Mrs Scott July 2016
Wonderful holiday cottage in secluded location but within easy reach of Dorset's delights. Well appointed and very comfortable for a family holiday. En suite ground floor bedroom was most suitable for my 85 year old father who appreciated the patio doors onto the decking. Well recommended.

Our best country holiday yet - perfect in every detail. The cottage was fabulous, the views beautiful, and the owners couldn't have been more helpful. We didn't want to come home!

Delightful cottage in fabulous setting in a beautiful part of the country. Spacious and comfortable. With 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms it was perfect.

Excellent Holiday, accommodation extremely comfortable clean, appreciated the well collated local information. The pheasants that block the drive are very slow to move, allow plenty of time to get out!!

Mrs Clarke October 2013
A beautiful cottage, in a stunning, quiet location. Very well equipped and maintained to a high quality. The perfect spot for a relaxing break; located near enough to local towns for exploring and shopping but also surrounded by rolling countryside for quiet walks. We enjoyed a fantastic stay and created a wealth of happy memories.
