    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

    We didn’t want to ever leave. that’s how much we loved it there. It felt like home. So welcoming, beautifully furnished, warm, comfortable beds and pillows and soft sheets. Quiet, great wifi, welcome pack, a garden and a warm bathroom in the mornings and the village was friendly. We found it an absolute haven and only wished we had been there when it had snowed. Would be super at any time of the year. And it was immaculate in every way. A credit to the owner and those that manage it.

    Our short break in Tranquillity Cottage was a last minute plan and this was our very first thatched cottage and we were loved every minute of our stay. The cottage was perfect for us, as it had really comfortable beds, was well equipped and very clean. The cottage has also been tastefully decorated to a high standard and in keeping with the period it was built in. The location of the cottage is in a lovely little little village in Dorset with a conveniently short drive to the cliffs of Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door. As we were staying there in the winter, our days out walking were short, cold and wet and so it was absolutely lovely for us to return to such a cosy cottage with toasty central heating, a lovely open fire, an abundance of hot water for soaks in the bath and a generously sized kitchen for us to cook our meals. The garden is also delightful and was much longer than we had expected, to the delight of our little dog, and it was well equipped with garden furniture and a summer house, so I am sure it will be a perfect place to relax in the summer with al fresco meals. The Wifi provided worked very well and we were surprised that we had very good mobile network connection (Virgin), so weren't cut off from the outside world I had thought that we would be. Now that we have discovered our perfect little thatched cottage, we are sure that we will return again.

    What a lovely quaint cottage. So relaxing and welcoming. We'll equipped kitchen, lovely fresh bed linen and great garden for our dog to have a run about in. The stairs are definitely something to get use to, but they give added character. Brilliant stay and highly recommended
