Pound cottage is as excellent as always, we were extremely confident that the cottage would be spotlessly clean and covid safe. Diana and Mike are fabulous hosts and we look forward to our next visit soon

September 2020

Very helpful owner. Cottage in a good location making for a relaxing and enjoyable break.

August 2020

It has its own secluded garden.

July 2020

I can’t recommend this cottage enough. Mike and Diana are charming, helpful and very welcoming. The cottage is delightful in every way, full of character and a perfect size for 2 people. It’s situated in a beautiful quiet village and has its own drive. It’s spotlessly clean and has an inglenook fireplace that houses an electric wood burner (as the cottage is thatched). Diana’s attention to detail is very evident both in the equipment generally which is of good quality and with practical touches like a night light for navigating the stairs if a trip to the bathroom is called for! The utility area is spacious and useful for keeping shoes and walking gear in with a washing machine, tumble dryer and a freezer which proved useful, as we didn’t want to keep going out to the shops. The garden is spacious and lovely to sit out in with nice wrought iron tables and chairs. We’ve stayed in a number of Classic Cottages and Pound Farm Cottage is definitely our favourite. We’re already planning our next visit !

July 2020

We had a lovely, relaxing stay in this beautifully located and well appointed cottage. The owners Diana and Mike were welcoming and ensured we had everything we needed for a great holiday. Highly recommended!

Diana and Mike were most helpful with information about the local area, the cottage is so well equipped - Diana has thought of everything you might need during your stay. The cream tea on arrival was most delicious. We shall definitely be booking to return in the future .

August 2019

The attractive cottage was in a peaceful location looking out onto open countryside. It was comfortable, well maintained and spotlessly clean and the owners who live next door were very pleasant. It is the second time I have stayed there.

August 2019

The best vacation spot that one can find, in the heart of the English countryside, beautiful landscapes, an absolutely dreamlike environment. And the house met all our expectations and exceeded them. If we ever return to this part of England, we would like to return to this area. For us who are Spanish and from the south (Seville), we were impressed with everything (perfect weather for summer), with the surroundings (green fields) and with the quality of accommodation (although in Spain there are also very good ones). But what ended up conquering us, were the owners of the house: Diana and her husband, who are more wonderful, charming and willing people. They were waiting all the time that we did not lack anything and to explain ourselves with great detail and interest of heart, what we could visit in the surroundings. Really, what spectacular people. Congratulations to Classic Cottages because in addition to knowing how to choose accommodations, you know how to choose the hosts. Mychas thanks friends.

August 2019

A beautiful thatched cottage which is very well equipped, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. An ideal location in the heart of the countryside with lots of places to visit in Dorset. We even went into East Devon to the Donkey Sanctuary which was about an hours drive to get there. If you get the chance to visit make sure to go. As an added bonus it is Free.

May 2019

What a little gem. A beautiful period cottage, full of character. Warm, cosy and sympathetically restored to a high standard. Pound cottage proved to be the perfect holiday rent, and one well paced to explore both inland and coastal Dorset. Unreservedly recommended. We very much enjoyed our stay.

March 2019

Very well equipped cottage, warm and cosy and made very welcome on arrival

December 2018

This cottage is cute outside and cosy inside. It is beautifully decorated, very clean, and warm in winter. It is well placed for access to Sherborne, the south coast and several National Trust properties. The owners are welcoming and available if you need anything, but otherwise leave you to enjoy your holiday.
