    This is an incredibly well kept cottage which has been decorated really well with very comfortable beds and sofas. The owners have put a lot of thought into what people need on holiday and everything is provided so I had to pack a lot less than usual, they were also very helpful over the phone before we arrived. The area is lovely and our favourite activity was watching the sun go down on Chesil Beach just a short walk away. There is plenty to do in the area so we didn't have to travel far for days out on the beautiful Jurassic Coast. A lovely place to stay, we were sad to leave.

    The cottage exceeded expectations- the photos don't do it justice! The décor is outstanding- extremely tasteful with lots of quality decorative touches. The two bedrooms are very spacious. There are two bathrooms -the first floor ones is enormous, luxuriously decorated and with a free-standing, double ended bath. The downstairs room are compact. Thee house is on several levels with extremely steep stairs, twisting stairs, meaning it would not be suitable for anyone with mobility or balance problems. The gated back yard was great for hanging sailing kit and storing bikes. The front terrace is lovely, with sea views. There is a drive but due to the steep narrow road it is tight parking an estate car - going on forwards is easiest - I could do it in one manoeuvre by the end of the week! The owners were extremely helpful.

    Great view of the sea from the seats on the terrace, only a few minutes walk from a great beach-front cafe where you can sit and watch the sunset. Good location, supermarket and fish and chip shop just found the corner. Beautifully presented house, very clean and everything you could need is there. Large TV with Netflix if you get stuck inside during bad weather. Great communication with the owners who were very helpful. Highly recommended.

    Lovely cottage, cosy and comfortable and was equipped with absolutely everything you need. Very helpful owner was available for help and information if needed. Welcome basket of biscuits, ale, cider, sweets, chutney to name a few was a really nice touch. Only stayed for 3 nights but wished we'd booked a week.

    We had a lovely stay at Samphire Cottage. It’s modern and clean and fully equipped. Really nice, and the owners are helpful and friendly too. The stairs are steep to the top floor, but we all managed fine, and the stairgate was an extra precaution at night time even though we have older kids. People with physical disabilities may want to contact the owners before booking though, just to be sure. Some might find the parking space a little awkward especially in a larger vehicle, but we managed and have a large people carrier. It certainly shouldn’t stop anyone staying at this lovely cottage.

    We had a lovely week at Samphire Cottage. The cottage is on a very steep hill and you can see the sea from the top bedroom. The property is decorated and finished to a very high standard and is equipped with everything you need. There was a lovely welcome basket from the owners to greet us which we enjoyed very much. The beds were very comfortable and we all slept very well barring my partner who is a light sleeper and was kept awake most nights with noise of the seagulls which were nesting on the roof. Not much you can do about that though! The area was very hilly, very good if you like walking with lots of lovely coastal walks all around the Island. We enjoyed days out at Swanage, Lulworth Cove, West Bay near Bridport and the Tropical Gardens near Abbotsbury.
