Old Sandpitts Cottage was the most beautiful cottage we have ever stayed in. We arrived on 22nd December and the owner had very thoughtfully put up a lovely garland, with lights, over the fireplace and also a decorated Christmas tree in the corner of the room. Talk about walking into instant Christmas! Thank you, Mrs May.
The kitchen is wonderful, with every appliance one could possibly need and the all-singing, all-dancing shower is an amazing experience!
The cottage was warm and cosy and we had the most relaxing time. Having its own long driveway really makes you feel you are totally isolated and away from the rest of the world.
Lastly, a big Thank You to Les for helping us out with a couple of things. You’re a star!
We shall definitely return. Thank you. Kate & Gerry Elston, Bradford on Avon

The kitchen was really well equipped. The cottage was in a superb location and felt incredibly private. I’m not sure how many people can stay at a rental with its own private driveway. We would love to return again.

Beautiful cottage, immaculately clean, fabulous crazy shower! everything you need to make a comfortable stay but a freezer of some sort is really needed . As was advertised on site with a freezer. Although I was informed of this, it was a bit late in the day to be told as was due to go within a few weeks . It would have been something I would have considered not booking the property because of this . A freezer even a small compartment in a fridge I would say is a must on a self catering holiday . Mattress in the main bedroom is extremely hard ! I admit I’m not a good sleeper away from home but even my husband who can sleep any where found it uncomfortable . Had to take the quilt off the other bed and sleep on that which did solve the problem . Overall lovely place in beautiful grounds . Lovely and peaceful exactly what we wanted

Thanks so much for taking the time to review Old Sandpitts Cottage. We're sorry that you were disappointed with the mattress in the main bedroom - we do find that mattress comfort can be a very individual preference and it can be difficult to find something that ticks the boxes for everyone, but we'll certainly pass on your feedback to the owner for their consideration as well as your suggestion of providing a freezer. We're so pleased that you enjoyed you stay overall and hope to welcome you back soon. Tressa, Customer Support

Beautiful cottage, very quiet location. The all singing all dancing shower was amazing, kitchen well equipped and lig fore was very cosy. Couldn’t fault anything! The pub within walking distance served excellent food too. Definitely planning another stay here next year

Old Sandpitts Cottage is a beautiful cottage set in beautiful grounds. Fully equipped even down to salt & pepper! Everything thought of and all to hand. The furniture and bed is comfortable and the whole place spotless. A wonderful base to explore Somerset, Devon & Dorset! We had the most wonderful break after a long spell without a holiday, just what we needed.

A lovely relaxing week in beautiful West Dorset, this cottage was a peaceful and comfortable base for my young family.
