    A good quality cottage, with a fabulous kitchen, loads of free space (very unusual) to store food items and reasonable sized lounge which can squeeze a table and chairs in to make a lounge dining room. The staircase is compact and very unusual, but it is comparatively easy to go upstairs. The bedrooms are a good size, the master is accessed through the twin bedroom. The only real negative is the downstairs bathroom/toilet, though they are again very good facilities. Highly recommended for a few days or a week or more.

    My husband and I had the most amazing time last week at Tranquility Cottage in Winfrith Newburgh, Dorset. As soon as we pulled up, We couldn't believe the beauty of it. Something out of a fairy tale. And it was ours... well... for a week! Our four legged fur baby, Stella absolutely fell in love with the cottage., particularly the log fire. My husband enjoyed his evenings chopping wood up ready for the evening fire... which we all spent the entire day look g forward to! Kate, the fabulous fairy house mother ensured that we were supplied with he essentials (toiletries, fresh linen, towels, tea, coffee, biscuits etc) and the delightful added extras of the white wine and the box of chocolates which were there to greet us on our arrival. Such lovely and thoughtful touches which added to the luxuries of this gorgeous pad! Since we have come back to our home on the Wirral, we have the serious 'holiday blues!' We have been on the same website we booked this cottage through looking for other stays and we can not help comparing every cottage to Tranquility Cottage and nothing even comes close! We have been on and will contknue to use in the hope that something similar will catch our eye! To us, it was paradise! A beautiful way of life! My husband and I cant wait to return and Stella can't wait to get her paws toasty by the fire again! Thank you for a magical week!

    I don't want to appear too harsh, but this cottage is not everything that it says on the tin! Granted it is very quaint, and we enjoyed our week there, albeit we spent all our days out and about, but I feel that it is in need of some serious TLC from an absent owner, with particular attention to the frontage and the patio/garden. I've no doubt that the housekeeper does all that's required of her, and apart from the fact that the three piece suite needs serious cleaning, we had no issue with the overall cleanliness. Additionally, had we known that there was no designated parking for this property and the bathroom was downstairs (no problem if you're young, but an issue at night if you're the wrong side of 65), we probably would not have booked.

    It was a really nice and quaint place to stay. Being so close to the road and given its peak season there was quite a lot of traffic noise and we did have a few issues with flies during the week. The only issue with the actual cottage was the stairs. They are described as steep but these are really more like a ladder. We have young children and getting them upstairs was a little challenging. Wine and chocolates was a lovely touch.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for choosing to stay at out lovely cottage and for taking the time to write a review. The stairs are characteristic of many cottages of this age but ours are fully carpeted and have handrails as shown in the photos.

    Beautiful cottage but lack of parking and paths are not great for children.

    Our family of four throughly enjoyed our week long stay at Tranquility Cottage. The cottage was spotless upon our arrival and the 'welcome' items were wonderful. The equipment provided is second to none ; literally everything that anyone would need. The garden is large and secure. The Village Shop is close by and stocks most items needed. It is a 'friendly' village with helpful residents. There are two PH's within a one mile walking distance they serve reasonably priced food. The front door is right on the roadside, which was always very busy with the associated road traffic noise being able to be heard inside the cottage but not sufficient to put us off from a return visit. We would certainly recommend the cottage.

    The cottage was beautiful, exceptionally well stocked with everything that you would need & more. The only downside was the traffic speeding through the village late at night! I would imagine during the height of the season this is even worse. The village & surrounding area was beautiful. The village shop was well stocked with all the essentials & the Red Lion (10min walk away) served food all day & was reasonably priced. Was great base for exploring the Jurassic coast
