Don’t judge this property by first impressions , if you do you’ll miss a real treat.

August 2020

The cottage is very spacious and has a lovely feel to it. It's so well equipped and really feels like home! We had a great week staying there and exploring all along the coast as well as the beautiful countryside.

July 2020

Celtic Blessing is a very comfortable cottage in a beautiful location. The views over the valley at the back from the garden room and balcony are peaceful and beautiful. We saw deer every day at the back and the front of the house, as well as many birds, rabbits and a fox. The cottage is very well equipped, with an excellent TV, and a very good selection of maps, guides and local information. We were welcomed with beautiful roses, biscuits and a tea tray, and very soon felt the lovely sense of peace that stayed with us for the whole holiday.

December 2019

It was our third stay at the cottage so it is certainly somewhere we like!

September 2019

This cottage has a wonderful calm feel to it; lovingly cared for it is more like a home than a holiday cottage, its views restful and calming, and at night such a delight to see all the stars in the sky! The pretty garden is filled with wildlife, and we saw rabbits, deer and a variety of unusual birds; such a tranquil setting. A return visit is definitely on the cards!

July 2019

We so enjoyed the peace and quiet and beautiful surroundings while staying here for a week. Sitting on the veranda at the back was a joy and to eat meals outside in the lovely weather was a treat. The cottage is a nice size and very comfortable. It's a nice quiet village and it's easy to drive to lots of beaches and other villages and towns. We miss the fields and hills now that we are home.

June 2019

Superb location, beautiful, clean comfortable property. If you are visiting Dorset, this is the place to stay.

December 2018

We had a lovely stay over New Year in this very cosy cottage which was decorated for Christmas. It was nice to have the wood burning fire to sit around in the evenings. It was also very relaxing to sit in the garden room and watch the birds. The cottage is in a good location to visit the beach at Burton Bradstock and in easy reach of restaurants at Bridport.

October 2018

A warm, comfortable cottage for an autumn visit with lots of thoughtful touches that make all the difference. We felt very welcome. Gorgeous views especially to the rear. Well-equipped kitchen, excellent shower, comfortable beds. A lovely base for a few days spent happily exploring a wonderful part of the country.

October 2018

Lovely Victorian cottage very well equipped in a pretty village setting. It had all the comforts of home including binoculars to watch the wildlife!

September 2018

Celtic Blessing is an ideal property and location for anyone wishing to explore the beauty of the Jurassic Coast and surrounding countryside. It is in a quiet rural location but only minutes away from the main road from where access to local attractions can soon be reached.

August 2018

The cottage was extremely comfortable and one of the best I have stayed at for all the extras eg, plenty of cleaning products when needed, tissues supplied, plus flowers in several rooms, milk in the fridge etc. those little touches mean a lot and make life so much easier. The housekeeper very kindly and swiftly replaced the toaster and dealt with a hot water issue. I have no complaints and despite the poor mobile phone reception, we all managed to text, or send emails or Whatsapp messages, plus there is a pay phone which came in handy a couple of times. I would heartily recommend the cottage and would love to come again, it was a peaceful place and had a beautiful setting.

August 2018

Lovely place to stay. Felt like a home from home. The owner and housekeeper had gone the extra mile to make us welcome and our stay extremely comfortable. Thank you so much.

May 2018

The property could not have been better. We both said that we could live there as our main residence. The rear garden outlook was magnificent from the garden room and terrace. The rooms were spacious and the bed very comfortable. One of the best English holidays we have ever had, perfect in every way including the weather.

March 2018

November 2017

We loved the log burner, the choice of soft furnishings and the spacious master bedroom

October 2017

Comfortable cottage in lovely village. The log burner added a real feel of cosiness in the evening.

September 2017

This is a nice, well equipped cottage in a very picturesque village. Only a few minutes walk from a smashing pub with great beer and good food. The views to the rear are beautiful. It's a delight to sit in the sun room and watch the sheep and deer and listen to the jackdaws croaking. It's a quiet location, yet handy for Bridport, Charmouth, Lyme Regis etc. I would recommend Celtic Blessing for anyone wanting to unwind and de-stress, do some walking, some sight seeing, some eating out or just chilling.

August 2017

Ideally located in central Dorset within easy reach of many attractions. We explored the whole county from Corfe Castle over to Beer which is just in Devon. Recommended for families young and old. Nice to be i the countryside where we hear owls and saw bats.

We had a wonderful summer week in Celtic Blessing. Perfectly located on the edge of a very pretty village, the cottage was an excellent base for exploring Dorset countryside and beaches. The cottage was surprisingly large, with lots of rooms to relax in, including a very charming conservatory with a terrace over the garden. We would certainly stay in the cottage again.

Very good location and the owner has tried to provide all of the essential items that you would need during your stay.

March 2015

Celtic Blessing is homely and comfortable - very 'familiar' to those who grew up in the '50s & '60s, but everything updated to a standard to suit the modern generation. It has a lovely atmosphere and we very much hope to visit again.
