    A lovely house, sadly on a very busy, noisy road. Downstairs space limited but the garden was excellent as "overflow". Some showers a bit weak. Organisation of Kitchen difficult to get to grips with in a short time but when we found everything it was well equipped and equipment worked. Dorset has so much to commend it and although we travelled 20 mins to get to the attractions the location is quite central.

    Lovely house-spotlessly clean. Fabulous welcome chocolate cake! Shame that the local pub has closed down so had to get in the car if we wanted an evening out. Furniture in downstairs lounge could do with replacing and showers lacking in power-some just a dribble of water. However, overall a lovely holiday home. Would return.

    Our party of 15, age range from 9-80 years had a wonderful stay. The owners provided a welcoming pack which included a huge chocolate cake and more than a dozen farm eggs! Every bedroom was beautifully furnished and had an en suite bathroom. There were two sitting rooms and a large and amazingly well-equipped kitchen, plus a log fire and a piano! The owners live in a separate part of the house, which was reassuring, but they were never obtrusive. The area around Winterbourne Abbas is stunning with much to see and do. We were able to visit Abbotsbury and Lyme Regis and several beautiful local villages. Recommendation to local pub in Portesham was spot on and much appreciated. The house itself is old and really interesting, the children especially loved the two staircases, which facilitated various games. All in all, a superb stay.

    OUR FAMILY GROUP HAD A WONDERFUL CELEBRATION OF OUR 50TH WEDDING ANNIVERSARY AT THE HOUSE WHICH WAS ALL WE COULD HAVE HOPED FOR AND A LITTLE BIT MORE. OUR ONLY CONCERN WAS THE ABSENCE OF A GROUND FLOOR TOILET FACILITY AND WHILE WE MANAGED WITHOUT DIFFICULTY, IT COULD PROVE A LTTLE DIFFICULT FOR LESS MOBILE GUESTS AND MAY BE SOMETHING WORTH MENTIONING IN THE HOUSE DESCRIPTION.

    The cottage is well equipped: being supplied with towels and toilet roll was really useful and the welcome basket with milk, bread, eggs and a homemade cake made settling in much easier. You can tell that the cottage used to be run as a guest-house in a good way with hairdryers and TVs in every room. The only niggle was that the parking was sometimes awkward.

    Fantastic place to stay for larger groups. We took our 2 Great Danes who had a fantastic holiday in the big enclosed garden. Everything you need is at the cottage it's like a home from home. Kitchen is massive and has more than enough equipment if you want to cater for groups. The village is beautiful and a great location for Dorchester, Weymouth and all sorts of attractions. Welcome pack on arrival added a personal touch from the owners and the chocolate cake was delicious. The rooms are all ensuite, very clean and comfortable. Can't wait to return.
