Lovely, comfortable cottage in a good location. Back garden is a real suntrap. Easy to visit other areas. If you are over 5' mind your head.

If you want a cosy, quiet get away, this is the cottage for you! It is quaint and pretty, in a beautiful little Dorset village, but Dorchester and Weymouth are near by. 5 stars!

Excellent location, good value for money and the cottage has everything you need.

Beautifully clean on arrival, nice little touches of milk and bikkies - and we thoroughly enjoyed it.

This chocolate box cottage was both beautiful to look at and to stay in. Great quiet location in a lovely little village, good local shop and pub. Great place to be based to explore Dorset.

Very Nice and cosy cottage with a large kitchen and Nice bathroom. Very good to exploire the countryside!

This is a sweet little cottage with lots of character, yet still manages to provide everything people need in a small space. Lovely quiet situation opposite the church and the little patio garden at the back was an extra bonus. We enjoyed exploring the local area, where there is a lot to see, and we found everyone we met very friendly.

A beautiful little cottage, with great character, well situated for walking holidays. We loved it. The view from the cottage is Puddletown church, looks lovely, and it was lovely to hear the church bells ringing too. ??

Wonderful cottage in a lovely peaceful location

This was a lovely cottage in a great location which we would definitely go back to. The owners where very attentive ensuring we got in ok and that everything was fine. The cottage was also lovely and cool on a very hot week!

Lovely cottage, in an fantastic, quiet location with easy access of main routes to coast. Very comfortable and cosy and superbly equipped with everything you’ll need. A small local shop and a good pub (dogs were permitted in a part of the bar) were a five minute walk away. It was perfect for our needs and thoroughly enjoyed our stay, thank you.

A delightful cottage with character. It was comfortable and quiet, and perfectly located for exploring much of Dorset. The church opposite scores highly in Simon Jenkin's book of best English churches - an added bonus.
