    When we first opened the front door there was an overwhelming smell of bleach. The landfill bin was full with two bin bags placed on the top both of which had been punctured by what we can only assume as vermin. The smell was naturally unpleasant. We were instructed in the manual to carry the rubbish out on a Wednesday night. This we did in good faith, in the knowledge that none of this rubbish was ours. One of the bath towels had a large rip down the side. The upstairs toilet was filthy round the rim. Poorly equipped dirty plastic green garden furniture. One of the chairs had a split at the back and thus unusable. Parking was a minor problem but manageable. The location was quite good set in a repose full village setting. The Local pub was excellent. The accommodation ruined our holiday. It made us reluctant to use the kitchen as most things needed washing, or worse replacing. For the money we paid it was way below the standard we would have expected and therefore a great disappointment.

    Cottage smelt damp in the kitchen and conservatory for several days, then we obviously aired the cottage sufficiently so that the damp smell disappeared. There were quite a few wood lice downstairs on the floors which were relocated into the front garden each day. Cottage was comfy and pleasant.

    Perfect setting, pretty garden, very pleasant neighbours. The cottage was always warm, we also enjoyed the sun room. Being so near an excellent , friendly pub was a big plus! A better frying pan for an electric cooker would have been a good idea, and the owners need to be told that only 3 rings work on the cooker. Certainly recommendable.

    Very happy with our stay at this beautiful little (actually huge) cottage. Parking is a bit of a pain but you can park a short walk from the door. It was lovely and cosy and I miss waking to the cows every morning. Literally cannot complain about anything, there is pretty much everything you need in the cottage although I put in our little leaving note that a high chair would be good to have. We will be booking again one day!! I think I may even have to visit during winter just to get the little fire going. I was totally amazed by our visit & really appreciate the owners renting it to us. ☺️

    The house is in a good location in a pleasant village. We enjoyed local walks as well as driving a bit further afield. Unfortunately the oven in the cottage broke down on our 2nd evening & although we didn't intend to cook every evening it did make things more difficult, especially as there weren't many microwavable containers. The owner arranged for someone to look at the oven the next day but it wasn't mended during our stay. The smoke alarm was very sensitive so that when making toast someone had to stand below the alarm and keep wafting to silence it. I don't know if any adjustment to, or repositioning of, the alarm is possible so that it doesn't keep giving false alarms. For these reasons I have given a lower ranking to "comfort & equipment" than would otherwise have been the case.

    fantastic location for exploring Dorset Cottage is ok, not the best one I have stayed in. The garden is not what you expect. I would describe it as a shared garden. One half belongs to the cottage, the other to the neighbours but there is not divide. I went with a three year old, difficult to stop a child that age playing in the neighbours garden. Also if you had a dog it is not ideal. The TV does not work. Despite the fact we were out all day. If you have children you can't go out in the evening. So a TV that worked would be nice. It seems like some areas of the cottage are not finished. The downstairs toilet has lots of pipe work on display. There is no shower, I feel this would help update the cottage. The cottage could do we with a deep clean, cobwebs etc evident Despite going in September it was cold at night. I could not get the storage heaters to work. There is an open fire but not evidence of any wood. The care taking details left at the cottage need updating regarding points such as this. Finally you can not park outside the cottage the road is too narrow. Parking is very limited and you need to park some distance from the Cottage.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your feedback. We were sorry that you were dissatisfied with some aspects of the cottage. The TV and the heating do work, if you had alerted us to these things during your stay we would have acted on this immediately. The basket of wood for the open fire is supplied by us for bookings from the end of September but taking your comments on board we will provide this earlier next year. We seek to improve the cottage each year and a shower is being installed this winter. Cleaning is monitored on a regular basis.
