    We have been staying in cottages around the UK with the same friends for the past 17 years and we all agreed that this was one of the very best. The cottage is immaculate and really comfortable and cosy as well as being very spacious. It was perfect for us and we didn't ever feel like we were on top of each other. There were two families, a couple and a dog. The kitchen facilities and equipment was fantastic and we had so much fridge and storage space - and two dishwashers! The local area is great with so many wonderful walks right from the front door. We had a fabulous time and can't wait to return. Thank you to the lovely owners who were so friendly and helpful and thanks as well for the lovely welcome treat of homemade scones with jam and clotted cream!!

    The cottage was spotlessly clean and really well equipped. The walks from the door were spectacular. We would definitely stay here again.

    Excellent house with brilliant facilities for two families. The cottage is located on a quiet road, with great nearby walks which showcase the beautiful views across the surrounding countryside. Bridport itself is minutes away, as is West Bay and the location of the cottage opens up many more fantastic places to visit in the wider area.

    Lovely cottage, very clean and cosy. Downfall was the fact that it is supposed to be pet friendly and the dogs aren't allowed to do anything even go to the toilet out the back. There is only a stair gate at the bottom of the stairs so when your child is upstairs you can't leave them (there should really be 2)

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; We are so glad you enjoyed your holiday at Woodbrook Cottage. You had planned to go out for the whole day 3 or 4 times during the week and wanted to leave your three dogs behind. Fortunately, you decided to leave your dogs in kennels each day. It is stated within the booking conditions that dogs are not to be left unattended at any time; this applies to all Agency properties. Often dogs left on their own in unfamiliar surroundings bark or howl the whole time, which is distressing, and dogs often chew the furniture. In your email communications with us prior to your arrival you asked that the stairgate should be put up for your arrival. You had not requested two but if you had, we could have told you that there is only one and you could have made other arrangements.

    Great place for a family or for a group of friends. A nice little park within 100 yards or so for the kids to play in.

    Cottage was very well equipped and well suited for 2 families with kids (4 adults and 5 children in total - plus 2 dogs!!). Kitchen was great and easily big enough for us all. Location was lovely - close to everything but at the same time very quiet. Only problem, and the reason we wouldn't stay at the cottage again is the beds are far too small and inadequate for anyone 6ft or taller. Both double beds were the same. Such a shame as if the beds were better we would book the cottage again

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; So glad you had such an enjoyable holiday at Woodbrook Cottage and appreciated the peacefulness of the area although it is close to the coast and so many places of interest to visit. We are sorry you found the beds too small. They are all standard size beds with footboards except the singles in the room with the three single beds. These are also standard singles but do not have footboards.

    We had a great time at Woodbrook Cottage. It’s very well presented, spacious, and perfect for a large family group. Location was perfect for us for exploring the nearby Jurassic Coast. The owners are lovely and the home made scones were a wonderful touch on arrival. Can’t fault this cottage, would happily stay here again.

    Good house for a family break. It’s a good walk to any facilities- shops, pubs and beach. Owner needs a few lessons in customer service. No sheets or towels available for babies, which is an issue when they have travelled from overseas.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your comments about Woodbrook Cottage. We are so sorry if you are upset about our customer service as we tried hard to accommodate your changing arrival times, and various urgent needs that you had in the few days that you stayed. Unfortunately we do not provide sleeping sacks or towels for babies. We have many visitors with babies from abroad to Woodbrook Cottage as it is family friendly, and there have never been any problems. It is always an idea to read details about the holiday property you book as this tells you what is provided and how far amenities such as shops or a beach are, as well as many other important points, so guests can decide prior to booking whether the property is suitable or not.

    Fantastically well-equipped cottage, well-placed for experiencing all the wonderful sights of West Dorset and further afield. Owners always happy to help in any way. Feels like a home from home.

    A really lovely & very well presented family holiday house, set in a peaceful village, but within walking distance to West Bay. Our family, consisting of 6 adults and 2 young children, thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the spacious cottage, which was extremely well equipped with everything we could possibly need, including homemade scones and jam on our arrival! Would definitely recommend:)
