It's rare for me to give a 5 star review but Ivy Cottage was really spot on - super comfortable, clean and well equipped - and the secure garden was brilliant for the dog.

Thanks so much for your fabulous review! We'd love to welcome you back soon. Julie, Customer Support

Ivy Cottage was very easy to settle into - parking right outside the front door, lots of storage space and a nice, lawned garden for our two pugs to enjoy running around in. The whole cottage felt nice and warm, and the log burner was a welcome addition on the cold evenings. The smart TV, induction hob and shower were all excellent too. We enjoyed a late Sunday lunch and lunch again on Monday at the Fox and Hounds, where the staff were very kind to our dogs, one of whom is a fairly nervous rescue dog. We hope to return....

Ivy Cottage is without doubt the best provisioned cottage I have ever stayed in. Very comfortable, lovely local pub and shop, and lots of places to visit. Everyone was very friendly.

The cottage exceeded our expectations! It was lovely and warm, tastefully decorated, well-equipped with all mod-cons yet retained its country cottage feel. Comfortable furniture. We met the owner near the shop and he encouraged us to let them know of any problems. There were none! Village interesting and we had a delicious pie at the Fox and Hounds pub on Monday. Just a shame not many people there. Happy to give them custom as the staff were friendly. Village shop/P.O. Very useful, well stocked with basics and more unusual treats as well as hand crafted gifts managed by helpful staff. Fascinating church. We would definitely return as there are plenty of places to explore....

Lovely cottage in a nice, friendly village and well located for exploring Dorset, a lovely county. Plenty of things to do and see and good places to eat out. Thoroughly enjoyable holiday.
