Wayside Cottage is a lovely thatched cottage in an idyllic and extremely tranquil village location. Fairly central to many parts of Dorset. A super pub is literally at the bottom of the garden. Parking is a problem and local residents are territorial over it. We were disappointed that entry to the property was delayed by over 1.5 hours, without prior notice, and that some electrical items were not working properly. While the property itself was very clean, the garden was a little unkempt.

Lovely thatched cottage in pretty village but the on road parking is an issue as there are few spaces and much demand

Lovely cottage in a perfect location for walking and visiting local places of interest and beaches. Nice dog safe garden with a great pub up the road. Highly recommend.

We had a wonderful stay at Wayside Cottage. Beautiful cottage in a gorgeous location. The cottage was spotless on arrival and had everything we needed for a very comfortable stay. Thank you Classic Cottages for another fabulous holiday!

We loved our stay in Wayside Cottage. It is in a great position for walks and for the coast and I don't think I have heard so much small bird sound all day for many years, it was incredible. Hope to return!

Lovely comfortable cottage for 3, well equipment kitchen in picturesque village. Very clean. Perfect for recharging with lots of walks and places to visit nearby. We'd like to return.

Property was wonderful - well equipped kitchen, logs for the fire and everything was nearly refurbished but the owners have manged to also keep the old cottage charm.

A lovely thatched cottage in a hidden Dorset village, just perfect for my mid-week escape. I spent 3 nights at Wayside cottage and I will be back! Two bedrooms (a single and a double) upstairs and plenty of space downstairs with a small enclosed garden, it proved a comfortable living space and a secure area for the dog. You are close to the coast but this is a superb base for exploring the Dorset countryside, just step out the front door and you’re in Marshwood Vale. Wander up out of the village and find Lewesdon hill, the highest point in Dorset, it’s stunning. Head south and discover the unique holloways (Hells Lane!) Finish the day with a pie and a pint at The New Inn (I did) An exceptional property!

The cottage is situated in a beautiful village, with plenty of adjacent walks for our four legged friend, Jasper. The New Inn is literally at the bottom of the garden and this is a friendly pub, with excellent food. The cottage is warm, very clean and comfortable. The cottage has a very beautiful garden, with a stream at the bottom. We were able to sit in it, with our coffee's even in mid October.

A really lovely cottage with everything we needed supplied. Beds were super comfy and the shower was perfect. The New Inn round the corner (a whole 2 minute walk away) does delicious food and there was so much to see and do in the area. Will definitely be returning!
