We absolutely loved our holiday in Tolpuddle cottage. It is a beautiful cottage and was well equipped and beautifully furnished. It was totally suitable for me with my 4 older children. The location was perfect for most of the major attractions being within a half hour drive of most. The pub in Puddletown provided the best food for our tastes. The Martyrs Inn was within walking distance and was pleasant enough although the food quality was adequate.

We thought the location of the cottage was excellent. The peace and quiet of a village, but so many places within very easy reach. My granddaughter loved the play area, virtually over the road from the cottage. Highlights of our week. Monkey World, an amazing "rescue" centre for primates, they do a fantastic job. We enjoyed the Swanage to Corfe Castle steam railway. Excellent afternoon tea at Athelhampton House, literally just down the road, can recommend the Dorset Apple cake! We loved Dorchester and Weymouth has an excellent safe beach for children. We did not do all that we had planned,so will have to return and would certainly consider staying at Tolpuddle cottage again.

The cottage certainly offers the best of both worlds with plenty to do in the area but a lovely peaceful retreat to return to in the evenings. We think a second visit is a must, especially for another slice of that famous Dorset Apple Cake! Tanya, Customer Support

Cottage was great (apart from heating); super king bed was nice, location is great, Netflix was available and enjoyed that, it is really quiet there, Dorset is wonderful. Athelhampton discount card was very useful, it is a great place.
The heating isnt a flexible heating system and not really suitable for holiday let where different people have different ideas about how warm a room should be in cold weather.

We're delighted that you enjoyed your holiday in Tolpuddle Cottage and liked the lovely Dorset location. We're really sorry that the cottage took a bit of time to warm up for you - underfloor heating can be a little slower to react but the housekeeper will make sure all is cosy for arrival in future, and guests can adjust the temperature thereafter on the room thermostat. Thanks so much for letting us know. Kari, Customer Support

Lovely quiet cottage in a lovely village. Great pub within walking distance. Lovely comfy bed and beautifully furnished. Lovely soft towels also. Highly recommend. Thought it was a bit expensive though.

The cottage was lovely, very well equipped and modern, a home away from home, a lovely base to explore Dorset. We definitely recommend Tolpuddle cottage for a lovely break away.

This cottage had far more in the way of equipment than any other in which we've stayed. Very well equipped and spotlessly clean
