These delightful holiday cottages are set in the peaceful conservation village of Puncknowle, an AONB. The Jurassic Coast is just 1½ miles away with superb scenic walking, along with use of 4 acres of grounds and footpaths. Each cottage is finished to a high standard offering very comfortable holiday accommodation and is set in the same smart courtyard area as the owners’ homes. The ‘chocolate-box’ village of Burton Bradstock is 3 miles with a good small beach. Abbotsbury, along the coast, has its famous swannery and sub-tropical garden. Further east is the Victorian seaside town of Weymouth, with Blue Flag beach, sea fishing, windsurfing, Sealife Centre and two RSPB nature reserves. Monkey World and the Tank Museum near Wool are great places for a family day out. Dorchester, the county town also known as Thomas Hardy’s ‘Casterbridge’ is 30 minutes’ drive and has a lively weekly market and beautiful Maiden Castle. To the west is the market town of Bridport which was Thomas Hardy’s ‘Port Bredy’ and has the twice weekly market as featured in the popular TV programme River Cottage. The picturesque harbours of West Bay are a great place for fishing. Lyme Regis is an attractive seaside resort which enjoys a dramatic setting with high cliffs, landslips and handsome harbour, known as The Cobb. Both Lyme Regis and Charmouth are renowned for their prehistoric fossils which are displayed in the local museum and on sale in the fossil shops. Local pub serving good food 250 yards.

    2 Sawmill Cottages was a home from home and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. It had everything we needed and more. We were sorry to leave and will certainly be back. Alan is a gentleman and on hand if you need anything - which you won't, believe me. The location is wonderful and there are a few walks from the door if you have a dog. Bridport is just down the road if you need supplies. Unfortunately we didn't have time to try "The Crown" but will do the next time. I can't recommend this cottage highly enough, we loved it. Thanks Alan, see you sometime next year.

    We had a great few days with our two dogs. Great beach at Burton Bradstock. Great pub food at the Three Barrels. Made very welcome by the owner of the cottage.

    We absolutely loved our stay at Sawmill Cottages, the cottage was lovely and warm on our arrival and the owner was very welcoming. We were surprised at how spacious the cottage was and had a very comfortable stay. Thank you! We would definitely stay here again.

    We loved the spacious kitchen and living room! The bedrooms were cosy and the bathroom were fine. Alan was very kind and helpful, and the place was spotless. The only reasons for decreasing a little my overall evaluation are the strong smell of kerosene in the hall (fortunately we could close the door to the kitchen and limit the smell in there, and the fact that the flue of the boiler exits directly on the seating area outside. A flue extension seems necessary!
