Wat een heerlijk knus huisje dat van alle gemakken voorzien was! Je voelt je helemaal zen... zeker om in de serre te zitten met uitzicht op een prachtige tuin. Hele aardige en zeer gastvrije eigenaars! Gelegen in een rustige, prachtige en landelijke omgeving!

Lovely peaceful setting, good outside space. Great hosts. Bathroom bit of a squeeze, but on the whole lovely well equipped accommodation.

Yet another wonderful relaxing stay. Alan and Belinda are fantastic hosts and gave us lots of information about places to go in the area. The garden was again looking lovely with all it's trees, bushes and wildlife. We had lovely weather to enjoy the beautiful scenery in the area.

Lovely cosy cottage and lots to do in the area

What can I say? A charming cottage set in a beautiful garden with lovely wildlife to watch from the conservatory especially whilst watching the sun go down with a glass of wine. The surrounding countryside was spectacular and was a pleasure to drive through. Belinda and Alan were very welcoming and we especially like the goodies they left us. The cottage was very well equipped and we were sorry when it was time to leave. We had a lovely relaxing time.

Very lovely little cottage tucked away in beautiful surroundings. The owners where very helpfull and very knowledgeable of the area. We enjoyed our stay and so do our dog Bonnie.

A very good "cottage", which is a garage conversion with a nice conservatory. The location is ideal for being central in Dorset for visiting all the well known attractions.

The hosts were friendly and helpful. The furnishings and decor was tasteful and simple which was appreciated. As we enjoy cooking we were pleased that the kitchen was sufficiently equipped. It's a good base from which to explore Dorset and Somerset. Our dog enjoyed pottering in the garden and it was all fenced with gates so secure. Thank you.

Excellent staycation Peaceful setting and perfect getaway

Very pleasant owner's, accommodation to a high standard including soft furnishings and a comfortable bed( didn't need my mattress topper!!) Peaceful and quiet, ideal for a short break or longer stay. Intend to return again.

Hosts who live inadjacent cottage very welcoming and helpful. Perfect holiday retreat for a couple. Very highly recommended

Owls Nest Cottage is cosy escape away from it all. Great location with tons of lovely walks to explore. It is certainly a little nest of comfort and tranquility that we would highly recommend.

Ideal for a couple seeking a peaceful stay in a lovely rural location but within easy reach of Dorset highlights.

We really enjoyed our week at Owls Nest. It was bijou but perfectly formed and extremely well equipped. The owners were very friendly and helpful and the peace and quiet of their garden was very relaxing. We would definitely book again if we were visiting the area.

We found the Owl's Nest to be a delightful retreat for two, yet well placed for the many attractions within the area. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend the cottage to others. Belinda should be proud of her creation !

A lovely, peaceful property

Very happy overall with our stay.

Cosy and compact in a very quiet setting.

Small but cosy cottage in peaceful surroundings. The garden was a delight and we were able to let our Labrador wander around without any worries.

Quiet location with large garden. Our hosts were helpful and very kindly provided an arrival pack of essentials. Great location for travelling in and around Dorset.

Great place to stay and a good size garden for our dog to play in. The owners were the best in every way.

Lovely cottage in lovely peaceful garden. Ideal place for somebody living and working in a busy city who are in need of total peace and quiet .

Owl's Nest Cottage is the perfect holiday location if you need peaceful surroundings. We enjoyed our stay and we will definately return. The Owners Alan and Belinda are the perfect hosts.

The cottage and garden was lovely, very well equipped, could not think of anything the could possibly improve it.

A lovely compact and comfortable cottage with friendly hosts. Extremely well equipped. A perfect base especially if you enjoy long walks!

Wonderful owners - so friendly and welcoming. Had such a relaxing stay here, enjoying the views of the garden and the chickens! The bed was so comfortable it was difficult to leave it! Absolute peace and quiet and yet good facilities within easy reach. Could not have been more satisfied with everything. Will come again.
