A wonderfully appointed cottage in a glorious rural English setting but within easy driving distance of Dorset's towns, villages and spectacular coastline.

Wonderful cottage and wonderful hosts cannot recommend this cottage highly enough. Beautifully kept and so well equipped. The gardens are beautiful and the children play area a bonus - wonderful setting that should not be missed.

We had a fabulous stay in Gardener's Cottage at Dominey's Yard Holiday Cottages. An outstanding cottage experience in every way, probably the best we've had. The hosts were welcoming, friendly, and disposed to assist in any way, yet also unobtrusive. All cottages, including Gardener's Cottage, were completely renovated over the past year. The interior and fittings are all new, and everything is tastefully decorated and comfortable. Very high standard of cleanliness. Cake, bread, eggs, butter, milk, and Nespresso-type coffee pods (and machine) awaiting on arrival. Very good wifi. Beautiful grounds with natural and formal gardens, pool (unfortunately already closed for the season by the time of our visit), and children's play area. Excellent central location for exploring all aspects of Dorset. Highly recommended.

We had a very enjoyable short stay at Gardeners Cottage which is in an excellent location for walks without having to get in the car. Adele welcomed us personally and gave us a quick introduction to the cottage which was useful. We found the cottage very spacious and well-appointed, and it was lovely to wander through the extensive garden immediately outside the cottage and beyond to where the swimming pool is.

We recently stayed in Gardeners Cottage and can highly recommend. Beautiful rural holiday home, very well equipped with a high level of cleanliness. Description does say there are low beams so anyone over 6ft needs to take extra care. Lovely grounds to stroll around including pool and games area. Pub at end of the lane. Owners live opposite and were very welcoming . We would definitly recommend staying here.

This is a lovely cottage one of the best we have every stayed in. It is in a lovely setting, it has beautiful gardens which you can wonder around, and there is very impressive heated pool! You are made to feel very welcome by the owners a real home from home.

Well designed and equipped for a memorable family holiday in beautiful Dorset.

Beautiful gardens and great amount of space for families.

We had such a wonderful stay in Gardeners Cottage. It was much bigger than expected, was well decorated, and had high quality furnishings. There was literally everything included that you could think of - like dishwasher tablets, cleaning products, coffee pods, and some food supplies! - delicious bread, cake, milk, and freshly laid eggs. The beds were very comfy, and the wifi good. The heated pool was perfect for an afternoon- we had it to ourselves! And there was a lovely children’s play area, with a slide etc (that was not mentioned in the description). The owners were very friendly too! We will definitely return. The only thing I’d mention, is that the stairs are very steep and narrow. We didn’t have a problem, but some elderly people might.

Good or bad, we publish all the reviews left by the guests who have stayed in this cottage, with the few exceptions stated in our Review Guidelines.
