    This questionnaire is not brief and easy and I will not spend time filling it in. The cottage was fine and the holiday enjoyable

    We loved staying at the cottage - it had everything we needed (we often need to shop for bits and pieces during out stays) and the fire was great!

    Beauttiful cottage with everything you need and more. Very quiet for a working farm and a lovely posistion. Great for the family with lots of walks and nearby attractions. Will be trying to book again as it would be hard to find a nicer place to stay. The owners are really friendly and its much nicer than the pictures.

    Only problem a very long wait in getting Hot Water to kitchen sink. Also if using SATNAV post code a long way out.

    Spent 4 nights with my family in this very clean, comfortable & we'll equipped cottage, very peaceful & quiet despite being on a working Dairy farm, very friendly owner & pets !! (welcomed with delicious homemade brownies). Beautiful rural location, surrounded by open countryside. We had a lovely time & would not hesitate to stay here again.

    We were in need of a quiet (post-operative for my husband) break and were so lucky to have found this cottage to be available. It was in a tranquil location attached to the farmhouse in a hamlet outside lovely Sherborne. It was beautifully decorated and equipped and we wanted for nothing, apart from better weather! However we were still able to get out and about in the mornings, have a pub lunch then settle back into the cottage before the rain began to spend the afternoons reading, playing scrabble etc and couldn't have been happier or more comfortable.

    Lovely property, very well equipped. Owners were very helpful & friendly & it was a nice touch to be greeted with cakes on arrival. Very pretty location. Only slight downside for us was that the local pub was not really within walking distance at night, as the roads were unlit & uneven & it didn't seem to be possible to get a taxi easily.

    Lovely cottage for a short break for 2 ... very clean, comfy and warm with everything you could need whilst you were there, handy . Good location for trips out in Dorset. Lovely quiet setting which was quite surprising as the cottage is on a farm.
