    The owners were very friendly. We were though very disappointed with our holiday cottage. On arrival, we found the farmyard in complete disarray (not nice to look at). Going in to the cottage, it was dark, cold and smelt. It was clean but an old person's cleanliness. The furnishings (furniture, bedding, towels, etc.) looked as if they had been bought in the 1990s). The armchairs and beds were very comfortable though, and there was plenty of hot water. It was equipped adequately but we felt we had to wash everything before using. To sum up, it wasn't a cottage that we liked to return to, and did leave a day early (although in fairness, the Royal Wedding, FA Cup and the M25 was a deciding factor). The farm was very hard to locate. The sat-nav stopped short and it eventually took us 45 minutes before we could find our destination.

    We really enjoyed our stay in this secluded farm cottage. Our host was most gracious and the cottage provided a great base for outings in Devon and Dorset. The family loved our stay at Tripps Farm!

    We really enjoyed our time in the countryside. The landlady was really kind and sweet. She received us with a delicious cake and a little flower arrangement. She respected our space and privacy but being at the same time friendly and kind. The kids had the chance to be closer to animals such as a pony, ducklings, ducks, cats and two beautiful dogs. The cottage was very comfortable specially the beds. The shower was great. The cottage was very spacious and had basically everything. We had a BBQ and enjoyed the quietness of the surroundings. The cottage is just 10 minutes away from Sherborne, a very nice and well kept village. The only thing is that you need to have a very good sense of orientation as getting to the place was just a bit tricky and there is not only one way coming from the main road. On the whole, a great place to stay because of its comfort, space and location (for those who like quietness and nature).
