    Lovely cottage, warm and cosy in December. Very quiet and peaceful. Really comfortable bed and sofa. Kitchen very well equipped. Private, even with the shared garden and a fabulous place to enjoy the stars on a clear night. Great access to the coastal path and all in all a perfect holiday.

    Freshwater bay view is the best equipped and cleanest cottage we have ever been in. Good central location for anywhere in Dorset and Portland is a delightful island to explore. Would recommend this cottage, do yourself a favour and check it out.

    Can't fault the cottage. It was lovely and snug when the weather wasn't being kind to us. Beautiful walks right on our doorstep and ideally located to visit lots of attractions. Good local friendly pub serving an excellent Sunday Carvery. Peter and Gillian were caring and considerate hosts who helped make our stay most enjoyable. Would happily recommend this cottage.

    Freshwater Bay View is one of the best cottages ive stayed in.. Peter and Gillian were very welcoming and even though they live next door they were not in anyway intrusive . The welcome gifts of produce from their greenhouse and milk on arrival and other little extras was very much appreciated after a long drive. Its in a very quiet and peaceful spot with sea views from the window. Beautiful garden and patio area to sit out. Although the village did not have any shops etc the nearest ones were only a 5 minute drive away. Its a real home from home and lovely to go back to after a days sightseeing. I would highly recommend Freshwater Bay View to anyone who enjoys peace and quiet .

    The cottage was spotlessly clean, comfortable and extremely well equipped. The owners were wonderful hosts and we had glorious weather. All in all a splendid week.

    Great cottage with every home comfort. Peter and Gillian are always on hand, if needed. This was our third visit and we will most certainly visit again.

    Could not fault the cottage everything you wanted for a good holiday, mind you I am not going to mention the weather. Would certainly use the cottage again.

    This was our second stay at this cottage, and probably not our last. It is a real home from home. Peter and Gillian are perfect hosts, there if you need them, but never intrusive. The welcome goodies are thoughtful, fresh eggs from their hens a treat. Highlight of the week? Scallops!!👍🏻 The cottage is comfortable and it's nice to be able to sit and enjoy the garden and the various bees that the planting encourages. We would not hesitate to recommend staying here. A lovely place to relax and get away from things. Thank you Peter and Gillian. Hope to see you next year. Jan and Trev

    Loved the location, Peter and Gillian were lovely and helpful, only suggestion larger towels , I.e bath sheets and also extra towels in a drawer so can wash them less.

    Lovely place to get away from it all. Exceptional! Especially seeing a family of dolphins playing and breaching just a few hundred yards from the cottage.

    Lovely welcome from caring hosts who were available if needed but did not intrude . The cottage is decorated & furnished excellently. It is an ideal base for walking this beautiful area or for sightseeing Would highly recommend
