What our customers are saying about our Beach Self Catering Holidays In Dorset.

Marcella - verified booking

"Quaint, would recommend with reservations, the cottage was not particularly clean on arrival and the oven and kitchen utensils contained burnt - on food matter. The crockery and cutlery had been washed but food residue remained. The courtyard had gutter protectors laying spike end up which could have been stood on. The Shower even with the hot water supply running with ample hot water barely got to Luke warm temperature ranging to Arctic cold.The cottage is advertised as being able to use the immediate forecourt with a bench to utilise, this was provided however; this was impossible to use as the overgrown weeds and nettles made it prohibitive. Coupled with waste food bins and other refuse bin boxes being in the same space attracting flying insects.If you desire a holiday whereby you are not concerned by parking your vehicle within a 1/4 mile distance to this location then this will be fine for you. We had read the reviews on the parking issues and accepted that the car would need to be parked on the road where you could find a slot..... However; the local population were hostile to parking issues that tourists cause and this made for parking resulting in a nightly search with angry exchanges if you parked near a locals residence.Overall the cottage is tired requires maintenance and could be almost idyllic. If this had been cared for and readied for this years season of holiday makers and not appearing as though it was at the exhausted state one would find at the end of last years summer season. Consequently we have not rebooked for next year but should the areas mentioned be rectified this cottage would be worth considering.Almost forgot there once was a pub now a block of flats and there is a corner shop..... That never opens!!!!Again not as advertised it is possibly worth reviewing the locations amenities as it would appear that in one Season so very much had changed?!"

"I'm conflicted in this review but want to be totally honest (otherwise what is the point of these reviews...)The cottage location is excellent and we had some stunning walks down to the coast and then along the coastal path (which to the east follows the top of the downs). We also had an excellent dinner at the local pub, enjoyed the Christmas morning church service in the village church and cooked an excellent Christmas dinner in the cottage's well equipped kitchen. In addition the cottage is set back from the road through the village, has good parking and has good access from the garden. So lots of positives.The negatives are few but important. The cottage is like going back in time to your grand parents, its needs new flooring downstairs (the carpets look old, as does the three piece suite). Equally the shower in the bathroom has good pressure but no real mixer & no thermostat, hence the temperature wanders around. The worst thing though are the beds whose mattresses are old and spongy. We started in the main room but I slept poorly because at 6 feet and with a foot rest it was hard to get comfortable. I also woke up with backache - something I never suffer from - presumably because of the spongy mattress. We then moved rooms to the one with two single beds, they were a bit better but we all left the house after 4 days grumpy because the sleep quality was poor. Note that I spend probably a week away per month in hotels around the world so I'm used to different beds, however I really think that sleep quality is important and hence IMO the mattresses all need replacing. To conclude I wouldn't return to this cottage until the above negatives had been resolved."

Lisa - verified booking

"The location was absolutely stunning, surrounded by fields, and was so quiet and peaceful. The cottage was exactly as pictured and described on the info provided. It was impeccably clean and had everything that we required. The beds were clean and comfortable. A lot of storage options for clothes etc. Temperature was great especially as the temperature outside was so hot. The host was friendly and approachable.The parking was a little further from the cottage than preferred and had issues with parking one day. The shower pressure was not great but this is common for the area. The cooker was not clean which was a stark difference to the rest of the property. The size of the cups provided were a little on the small side for our taste and no hand towels provided."

Steve - verified booking

"Overall a nice cottage, however the shabby chic decor can’t disguise the fact this property is lacking in general maintenance.The bins were full and there was some confusion as to which bins had to be put out. There was two sheets of paper with conflicting instructions!Our break was ruined somewhat as we were greeted with scaffolding erected outside our front door. Workmen were using our front porch area to transport their materials up to the rooftop. After speaking to the workmen, it turned out they were doing chimney restoration on next doors property, and they were told that this property would be empty for the duration of the work!!For this reason we left a day early as you don’t expect this when you go away for a few days break!"

Angela - verified booking

"Lovely, well thought out, cosy and clean accommodation. We had a great relaxing stay and the property is a good base to explore Dorset. In response to previous reviews - On street parking wasn’t an issue for us. We parked outside each day.There is a good bus route near the smugglers pub too. If you go left from the house, then right at the top of the hill you can get to to the shops, pub and bus links. The owner of the property was always friendly and responsive to our communications. The shower worked fine, the left control just needed turning. The shower controls are a bit tight but nothing we couldn’t sort."
