We hired the two semi-detached cottages for a family holiday. The cottages were lovely, just what we wanted! The owners were helpful and the location was beautiful!

We had a great week in Woodpecker Cottage. It was our second time there and we enjoyed it greatly. Nowhere is cheap in July but we felt it was worth it. The cottage is very comfortable and welcoming and being in a farm with a lovely green area that has a stream running through it was lovely. On the very hot days of the heat wave we sat under the trees by the river and kept cool. An added delight was being visited by ducklings. We enjoyed walking in the area and indeed walked into Sherborne on a footpath which saved on using the car. We'd definitely recommend the cottage and hope to be back again sometime.

We had a lovely week at this very nice cottage which we have stayed at before. It is in a wonderful location and very close to Sherborne which is a beautiful town.
