    "This was my second visit. It's a perfect cottage for both a family gathering and a weekend away with friends. I look forward to visiting again!"
    Suzanne ‐ 19 Sep 2018
    "The whole family had a lovely time, our dogs loved the garden, cottage was lovely and big enough for 7 adults and 2 collies, very friendly locals, such a beautiful place with lots of things to do close by. Look forward to returning!"
    Geraldine ‐ 4 Aug 2018
    "Very comfortable, spacious, well equipped but please lose the carpet in the bathroom!Friendly owner and well situated for Dorset beaches and attractions. Blackout blinds/curtains would have helped get the kids to bed."
    ADRIAN ‐ 22 Jul 2018
    "We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and would recommend the cottage to friends."
    Andrea ‐ 14 Jul 2018
    "This Cottage was one of my all time favourites, the Cottage is much bigger than it looks in the photos, all the bedrooms were big and had their own en suite or bathroom facilities and also had a great enclosed garden, so no need to worry about kids or dogs getting out. The owners were so lovely and even emptied our bins outside (a large family makes a lot of rubbish) every day for us! The local pub is a 2 minute walk and the food/drinks and staff were all amazing. Will be going back here again as me and my family absolutely loved our time there"

The owner is very welcoming and had lit the wood-burning stove for us before we arrived.The kitchen is well-equipped and the dining room roomy and perfect for eight to sit around the large table.The pub is just down the road and very family and dog friendly - we had a lovely meal there on Friday evening.We are recommending this cottage to everybody!"
    Chris ‐ 8 Jan 2018
    "A great cottage - very warm and cosy for a winter break. The cottage has four good bedrooms, a nice sitting room with a wood burning stove and a well-equipped kitchen. The village pub is great and it is short drive to the shops in Bridport. Great coastal walks and beautiful scenery."
