    Location and style of cottage was lovely. The kitchen was very well equipt. The kitchen and bathrooms were clean but the rest of the rooms very very dusty. It would have been helpful to have some instructions from the owners eg expectations re recycling, where to leave the key, heating management, how to use the front door (or an instruction not to if that is the preference).

    A lovely location, which a fab kitchen and level of equipment and benefitting from two bathrooms. The creaky floorboards can be problem if you are a light sleeper and some might find the one double bed too soft. Matt who greets you is a really nice guy.

    Train track was a little noisy, bed was really uncomfortable and held up by bricks. Area was nice and the cottage was lovely. Perfect for a weekend away but couldnt do longer. Owner was really nice popping in to see that we settled in ok. Other than couple issues mentioned above it was really enjoyable and recommended

    We liked this cottage. It is a lot bigger than the photo so we were pleasantly surprised. It was nice have a selection of dvd's to watch in the evenings. In fact every home comfort was here really - even down to a blanket on the sofa. The best we have stayed in so far. The cottage has its own unique style and as a holiday cottage it was perfect for our family. (we have kids age 3, 12 and 13) The only 'blip' for me was the bed which was a bit too soft for me - saying that my husband was ok with it. Lots of places to go, Bournemouth - Weymouth, Oceanarium, Monkey World, beach etc... I recommend staying here.

    Everything was fine apart from the beds, which weren't very comfortable, and the lack of natural daylight which meant we had to have the lights on during the day.

    Bed in master bedroom is very uncomfortable. Mirrors are not over the sinks in the bathrooms, which is annoying. Rather cluttered. A pack describing local restaurants etc. and providing operating manuals for kitchen kit would have been welcome.

    A lovely cottage, a good central place to stay. Excellent access to train station (just at the end of the road) providing short journeys to Wareham, Weymouth and Dorchester. Also very short car drive to catch the steam train to Swanage and 10 min drive to Lulworth Cove/Durdle Door. Two pubs within easy walking distance. We would definitely stay again

    Lovely property. We did however find that all the nicknacks about caused us a problem with young children. Also we felt that the sloping roofs in the bedrooms were not fully explained in the property description. However there were potential hazards with the floor due to proud screws and poor joints. Need to be aware of this.
