    Everything about the cottage was excellent and one of the best we have stayed in. It is well equipped and felt very homely. It is in an ideal position for touring the surrounding areas. We would definitely stay there again if we visit Dorset again. Complimentary breakfast pack was a lovely touch and very tasty.

    We had a really lovely stay at this cottage. Very clean and everything inside you could need, kitchen equipment and even down to books, games and dvds. Only reason we didn’t give top marks on location was because of the busy road which you could not hear within the property but was a bit hard to get out onto when going out. Lovely welcome pack more than got us through until we ventured to the Supermarket (only five mins down road). Very friendly and helpful owners and we would highly recommend and definitely come again! Thanks for a lovely time.x

    Hill View was perfectly situated for visiting the major tourist attractions in Dorset. It was very comfortable and we had everything we could possibly need - and more. The Welcome Pack of bacon, sausages, eggs and homemade jam was a lovely surprise, as was the vase of fresh flowers. What a warm and friendly welcome too.

    Awesome central location for discovering Dorset within driveable distance of Bournemouth, Poole, Weymouth, Dorchester, Stonehenge, Monkey world and the Tank Museum. Quiet relaxing location. Hosts are very accommodating and are very honest hard working people not like most people who own cottages that are snobs, although they live next door they are very quiet and give guests their privacy. They are true animal lovers. its like a mini farm but with a gravel drive, none of the mud !! The cottage is very clean and all the mod cons. a sort of welcome pack is left for guests which includes coffee, tea , sugar, milk, biscuits and apricot/vanilla homemade jam which is gorgeous which I think goes to show the thought put into their guests stay.
