This was our second stay at Phoebes house, and it exceeded our expectations again!

August 2019

Beautiful setting, private location, well equipped cottage, lovely touch to have bread, milk, butter and wine and much much more. No need to rush out for anything when we arrived. Useful local area information. This was an ideal location for a long weekend, we loved it.

August 2019

We had one problem with the oven which the owners came and sorted out very promptly.

July 2019

A lovely cottage on a working farm. Beautifully decorated, excellent equipment, comfortable furniture and very spacious. An added bonus was a very comprehesive "welcoming pack" with bread, butter, wine, etc all of good quality which made you feel instantly at home. An excellent place for a break away from it all.

May 2019

Phoebes house is a real home from home. It is done to a very high standard and the extras are amazing! I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone.

April 2018

A beautiful cottage with stunning views. Lovely personal touches, homemade bread on arrival and wine in the fridge! What more could you want?

December 2017

A wonderful place for a wonderful stay, just take yourselves away from the hustle of working life and relax here, words cannot describe how you feel when you return after the break at Pheobes House.

an ideal comfortable,country retreat, thoughtfully presented, and excellent location for country walks and coastal visits alike.

August 2017

Lovely cottage with very high standard. Full filled fridge with food, wine, beer and fresh baked bread. The owners gave us a very warm welcome. Beautiful view over Dorsets hills.

July 2017

The cottage was fantastic. Pretty much everything was provided for by the owners and some lovely touches such as having milk and butter in the fridge and a fresh baked loaf. There was even a bottle of wine. It was much appreciated.

The cottage is of a high standard with all the things you would have in your kitchen at home.

May 2017

We had a wonderful time at Phoebes House - a warm, very clean and comfortable cottage, with a very high standard of fittings and finish throughout.

Phoebes House is perfectly located for visiting some of our favourite places in West Dorset and the Somerset borders. The views from West Farm are stunning.

Jan and Matt's attention to detail in the house is superb - we were made very welcome, with so many thoughtful touches - wine, flowers, coffee, chocolates, cereals, biscuits and Jan's fantastic homemade bread.

Definitely all 5* Thank you again for a wonderful stay, We do hope to re-visit soon.

April 2017

Would recommend this to anyone, couldn't be better. Easy reach of coast and countryside.

March 2017

Phoebes House is such a lovely place to stay for a holiday in Dorset. The owners give you everything required and more! It is the best holiday cottage we have ever stayed in. The beds are very comfortable and the owners leave little treats with which to greet you on your arrival (even a chocolate on each pillow!). There is nothing at all to say that is not good about Pheobes House.

December 2016

lovely cottage with very high standard of decor and equipment, we enjoyed the wood burner and cosy atmosphere! excellent location for exploring the coast as well as inland walks, market towns and of course Dorset's excellent places to eat.

October 2016

Phoebe's Cottage is a little gem! It's 5* in every way from the quality & content of the food & wine left for us to the wonderful coffee machine, from the comfortable beds to the quality of linens, towels, toiletries and general high quality decor of the place. The views and peaceful location are beautiful and such a gorgeous little private garden to enjoy it in. Shame to be there in October when it wasn't quite warm enough to sit out but on the plus side we got to use the cosy log burner!

TV & DVD player in the twin bedroom was great and meant we didn't all have to watch TV at the same time. The selection of games, books and DVD's was also a wonderful addition.

Would highly recommend this wonderful, high quality, extremely good value for money cottage!

September 2016

It was exceptional well finished off and you wanted for nothing. I would recommend it anyone if they wanted a wonderful place to stay and it was easy to get to all the surrounding area. Just keep up the good work We have been going with classic cottages for over twenty years and never had a bad place to stay.

Good base for visiting the jurassic coast and River Cottage.

November 2015

We enjoyed four sumptuous nights in this stunning property on a remote Dorset Farm. The delightful owners Mr & Mrs Cooper gave us such a friendly welcome and prepared the cottage beautifully together with fantastic treats. Home made bread that was so good!, a bottle of very nice NZ white wine, great ginger biscuits, Classy Dorset cereals and even top quality chocolates on our pillows! There were so many other lovely things left out, far too many to mention. This property is kitted out to a five star standard it really is, everything in it was of top quality. The bed and pillows were so so comfortable! Bathroom was gorgeous and kitted out with super bath products. We actually brought our own best towels thinking that they wouldn't be great as has been the case in the very many cottages we've rented in the past. But don't bother!! I've not used better than the ones here, far better than ours! This cosy cottage had ample heating along with a wood burner that was a dream to use I managed to fire it up with the first match every time and it was extremely controllable. We absolutely loved our stay here and will certainly return if you'll have us! Thank you so much for making our short break just perfect!

November 2015

Beautiful property with everything we could have wanted and more. The cottage has been decorated to the highest standard with no expense spared. Very friendly owners who welcomed us on arrival and left us some very nice groceries, including bread and biscuits. I think it likely that we will return to this property.

November 2015

This is a delightful property in a secluded position. Jan and Jim are very welcoming and attentive. The welcome goodies included home baked bread and other delights. The standard of equipment and furnishings is excellent and we enjoyed the wood-burner very much. We recommended this cottage and look forward to our next visit!
