Sleeping eight guests and two pets, Woodmans Cottage is brilliant for that special family gathering or group of friends.

These delightful holiday cottages are set in the peaceful conservation village of Puncknowle, an AONB. The Jurassic Coast is just 1½ miles away with superb scenic walking, along with use of 4 acres of grounds and footpaths. Each cottage is finished to a high standard offering very comfortable holiday accommodation and is set in the same smart courtyard area as the owners’ homes. The ‘chocolate-box’ village of Burton Bradstock is 3 miles with a good small beach. Abbotsbury, along the coast, has its famous swannery and sub-tropical garden. Further east is the Victorian seaside town of Weymouth, with Blue Flag beach, sea fishing, windsurfing, Sealife Centre and two RSPB nature reserves. Monkey World and the Tank Museum near Wool are great places for a family day out. Dorchester, the county town also known as Thomas Hardy’s ‘Casterbridge’ is 30 minutes’ drive and has a lively weekly market and beautiful Maiden Castle. To the west is the market town of Bridport which was Thomas Hardy’s ‘Port Bredy’ and has the twice weekly market as featured in the popular TV programme River Cottage. The picturesque harbours of West Bay are a great place for fishing. Lyme Regis is an attractive seaside resort which enjoys a dramatic setting with high cliffs, landslips and handsome harbour, known as The Cobb. Both Lyme Regis and Charmouth are renowned for their prehistoric fossils which are displayed in the local museum and on sale in the fossil shops. Local pub serving good food 250 yards.

    Great find, we looked for a cottage that would fit three couple for a birthday weekend. The house was full of character, spacious, well equipped, clean and a pleasure to stay at. We had great fun. The location near a pub was ideal, and a great area for walking. The owner, Alan was very helpful. The location in on a farm in a very rural location was ideal. We would definitely return.

    We had a lovely stay at Woodmans cottage. It was fully equipt with everything we could possibly need. Very spacious and comfortable for us all which included 2 adults, 2 young children and 2 dogs. Even with another family staying with us, the would've still been plenty of room. For us, location was perfect. Local walks around the village and only a mile drive to the nearest beach but also very central to get to many costal towns. My Fry was very hospitable, and we would def return. First time to Dorset, and thoroughly enjoyed it.

    We loved this cottage. It worked perfectly for 4 adults and 3 small children and was large enough and sufficiently equipped for us to entertain 6 other family members to dinner. The location is delightful with easy access to great walks, wonderful beaches, a super farm shop, and a terrific gastropub. On top of which we were blessed with beautiful weather in the last weekend of October. Mr Fry was very friendly and helpful. We would love to visit again.

    Lovely cottage. Double duvets on the single beds not comfortable. Wifi essential to be installed especially as mobile coverage so patchy. We had an emergency with our dog and communication with vet very difficult. We have stayed at this lovely cottage twice but will go to a different area next year. We will not book another cottage without wifi.

    Great welcome from owner on arrival with biscuits and tea most welcome after a long drive. The cottage was perfect for three generations of our family. The beds were very comfortable and The kitchen was well equipped too. In a quiet village but great location for the beach and easy to reach many local attractions. Can't wait to return.

    My family and I (a party of 7 adults and two dogs) spent a wonderful week at Woodmans Cottage in early August. The accommodation was very spacious and all the furniture and equipment was really good quality which is quite unusual for a holiday let - especially one that takes dogs. The village and surrounding area is beautiful and, even though the weather was a bit hit and miss while we were there, we had a great time. Alan (the owner) couldn't have been more friendly and obliging and was very patient and accommodating - even when the 'youngsters' (all in their 20's!) kept kicking the football into his garden! We would recommend a stay at Woodman's Cottage to any family who want good quality accommodation, beautiful scenery, lovely walks and a landlord who just wants you to have a great time on your holiday.
