    We took our daughter and Grandchildren for a holiday in Dorset and we were all very pleased with Riverside Close cottage. The cottage was spacious and ideal for a young family with beaches within 30 minutes. The village of Cerne Abbas was delightful with three pub/ restaurants all within walking distance of the cottage. Next to the cottage was a playing field and play park that were a real bonus for the children. The cottage owner was very welcoming making us feel at home from the outset. The cottage was clean and well maintained with a conservatory where we enjoyed all our evening meals. We would definitely recommend this cottage. James Oxford.

    We found the cottage everything we wanted in a beautiful village. With two pubs, one cafe and an hotel serving food within five minutes walk it is ideal after returning from busy sightseeing. Some of our meals where a bit hit and miss but where ok, The Giant being best for food and the Royal Oak for drinks. The cottage is very spacious with a lovely garden and appears much older on the outside than its 16 years. Large modern television was much appreciated and large choice of DVD,s and Cd's. Now a few things would make perfect: New single mattresses, both old and uncomfortable . The double bed was the same and replacing with new king size would be fantastic. A good nights sleep is so important ! The sofas in the lounge are very saggy and need refurbished or replaced. A hair drier would be good and socket put near mirrors and stools to sit on. Also a small welcome pack with milk would be good for guests arriving too late for thr local store. Would definitely return but think we saw most places, Lyme Regis, Weymouth, Sherborne , Shaftesbury etc. Avoid Poole.

    A lovely cottage in a lovely location. Well equipped and spacious. A problem with a leaking conservatory/ dining area was an issue due to heavy rain. As the village seems to have no mobile phone service and the cottage had no telephone or internet, it is somewhat cut off. For us, this was important as we needed to remain in contact with elderly relatives back home. Some care would be required for very young children with regard to the outside space.

    Super quiet location, in a village environment with all facilities close to hand. Very relaxing house and gardens. House furnished to the owners particular taste but very clean and comfortable and the owner very welcoming. No mobile phone reception in village or in house Wi-Fi available but Wi-Fi freely available in local pubs etc.
