Description

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.

    This is a very well equipped cottage with ample space for a larger party and with a good range of facilities provided. The owner lives on site and is very helpful. There is a pub very close by which allows dogs and has a good selection of food on the menu and there are other pubs within a 2 mile radius. No real shops available although the local pub does double up as a community store. The area is beautiful with lots of beaches and seaside towns within easy reach. A bit of a nightmare to get to if you live in the North of the UK due to all the major roadworks on the M6 and M5 but well worth it once you get there. I would definitely recommend this cottage to family and friends and would be happy to revisit in the future.

    I have to say this was the best cottage holiday we have ever had. This review is going to sound like we are part of the owners family, but I can't praise the cottage or Alan enough. So often you see pictures online and are disappointed when you get there. This was not the case when we arrived. The cottage was fantastic, and well equiped and Alan met us on arrival and was incredibly accomodating when we turned up with a 7 meter boat. He helped get it off the back of the car and into a secure overnight parking space. The cottage is beautiful, a good combination of cottage feel and modern decor. Alan couldn't do enough to help and nothing was ever a problem. Its a lovely location not far from Bridport and about 30 mins from Weymouth. The village pub is a 5 minute walk away. You must stay here! ...our little boy wanted to add he liked playing in the garden

    Plenty of room for 3 generations of our family. Stair gates were welcome. Lovely village. Enclosed garden was great for children.

    We were very pleased although we did find a pair of men's pants behind one of the single beds.

    We were a group of mixed ages from mid 20's to mid 80's and we all thoroughly enjoyed our holiday at Woodman's Cottage. The cottage was beautifully clean, very well equipped and was comfortable with period charm and a lovely inglenook fireplace. The owner and his family were friendly, welcoming and helpful. A delightful village in a peaceful spot, we enjoyed drinks and meals at the Crown Pub only a short walk from the cottage.

    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.
