    We used Churchview House as a base for a group of 10 friends playing golf at various courses nearby. It worked brilliantly for us - an affordable 9 bedroom house with plenty of baths/showers in range of beautiful seaside golf is not so easy to find. We were worried about road noise, but found it not too bad. Parking is awkward if you have more than 5 cars. The lack of a downstairs lavatory is annoying, and anyone taller than 5'11" might consider bringing a crash helmet. Owners live next door, were very helpful and made an excellent cake.

    Well equipped house with lots of rooms. Ideal for multiple family's. Lots of bathrooms but they weren't great but definitely did not impact the holiday. Welcomed with a yummy chocolate cake to. Only thing missing was handsoap which is easily solved!

    Nearer a busy road than we realised, so had to watch the children when they went out to the cars - but well equipped and a good base for an extended family get together

    Booked this accommodation for a family get together for our golden anniversary. The house was very well equipped and had plenty of room for everyone. The bedrooms were very comfortable and were en-suite apart from 1 and we had a choice of rooms to use. The owners were extremely welcoming and helpful.

    This is an old, quirky cottage with lots of character. It was very well equipped and the welcome pack and chocolate cake were very much appreciated. The location was great with lots of amenities close by.

    Had a great weekend with 14 members of our family. Bedrooms were plentiful and a good variety of bed set-ups which allowed for young and old and singles. The kitchen is very large with every utensil you can think of, plenty of cooking implements, pans etc. A 5 ring gas hob and a total of 3 ovens. There is a large fridge and a small freezer plus another small fridge in Dining-room - ideal for drinks. Are TVs in every bedroom and in the 2 lounges - with basic freeview. Parking for 2 large or 3 small cars in back and 2 cars out in front of house. Road in front of house is a busy one even in winter probably worse in summer but not noisy - you couldn’t hear the traffic in the house if windows closed. Ample bedding and towels, all bedrooms bar one en-suite. Small garden at rear with little lawn and summer house. Would certainly use again if we decide on another family break in Dorset. Big Tesco in Dorchester 5 minutes drive, Monkey World, Bovinton Tank Museum, and Weymouth attractions all within half an hour drive.
