What our customers are saying about our Open Fire Self Catering Holidays In Dorset.
George - verified booking
"The overall rating is justifiable in that the whole experience was better than expected in most aspects, and even the couple of minor issues were dealt with immediately, in a manner befitting the top class service that the owners provide.From the moment we entered the area, we were surrounded by a peace and tranquility that started the holiday mode immediately. Entering the cottage, and following the very helpful instructions and guidelines that were sent by email, we were taken aback; the pictures online did not do Jasmine Cottage justice. It was so beautiful, cosy, and warm, with a welcome package that included a delicious sponge cake!Both myself and my wife were so inspired by the Cottage, that it wasn’t long before we were unpacked, and either lounging in the conservatory, with accompanying birdsong, or in the sitting room, in front of the real log burner; in both cases, a book in hand, and a plan of doing absolutely nothing!There was only a few cars that passed by, but other than that, just the sounds of nature. There was even the hooting of an owl each night, which was a special treat.To finish the day, we had a choice of either a walk-in shower, with lots of room, or a chrome clawed roll-edge bath, which again, was an indulgence that is the whole “Jasmine Cottage Experience”.For the times we needed to top up our shopping, It was only 10-15 minutes by car to the local Tesco, or maybe a touch more to either Blandford Forum, Sturminster Newton, or Dorchester.Highly recommended."

"The cottage provides a very comfortable accommodation for couples and is well located to cover both east and west areas of Dorset. The location is quiet although it just a mile or so away from the A35 main road. Dorset provides a varied interest to visitors and most of these can be reached from the cottage in under the hour.The lounge, bedrooms and bathroom are very well presented and provide a welcome return after a day out. We cooked most of our evening meals and found plenty of utensils etc available to use. The absence of an average freezer means slightly more trips to the supermarket which are about 20 minutes away. The cottage had a small garden which, given the weather, is an excellent spot to relax down.Like in all households problems can suddenly present themselves. What is important is how these are dealt with. In our case an issue raised was very quickly resolved by the owner.The cottage is semi detached and there is no dedicated parking area hence parking is at the side of the roadway. Could become difficult for two cars.Overall the accommodation provides good value for money"

"Beautiful barn conversion on the Dorset/Somerset border. Very comfortable and well equipped. The owners provided a welcome pack of coffee, tea, biscuits and milk which was a nice touch. They live across the garden, so are on hand if needed. The barn offers plenty of room for two families to get together and not fall over each other! Sherborne is less than 10 minutes away by car with all amenities on hand. Pleasant high street for shopping and a visit to Sherborne Abbey is a must - one of the most beautiful churches in the country. RNAS Yeovilton is about 20 minutes away by car and well worth a visit, especially if it's wet. Good walking, running and cycling from Higher Farm Barn's door. There is a train line fairly close by, but it's not that busy so the noise from it was not intrusive. This was our third visit to the Sherborne area and we love it - my brother and sister-in-law like it so much, they are considering moving to the area! If you've not visited this part of the country before, Higher Farm Barn is a great base to start to explore it. We hope to be back soon."

"Overall we enjoyed our holiday stay at Swiss Cottage. It is in a good location for walks down to the sea and coastal walks, which we enjoyed with our dog. The garden is good for people with children / dogs as it is enclosed. We loved the sun room overlooking the garden for chilling out after walks in the evening. The pub round the corner ( Clockhouse Inn ) serves good pub food and means you don't have to get the car out for an evening meal. There were a few small issues with cleanliness. The kitchen bin was very dirty when I removed the bin liner to empty it, and the last visitors cigarette nubs were still in the garden. Also a toy was under the sideboard in the dining room and the floor was not very clean in there. The front door lock was very stiff when entering with the key. The back door was also very stiff to lock from the inside. The settees in the living room were very 'sinking'. However the beds are very comfortable and all the linen very clean.Thank you."

"Whilst this cottage is spacious it was generally dirty, the dishwasher still had food in it, the saucepans and glasses had to be washed before we could use them and the whole place feels uncared for. The sun room was nice when we finally managed to unlock the door, but there were slugs on the wall and the windows were dirty, I wrote my name in the dirt. The shower doesn't drain away and floods after a while as does the outside kitchen drain. There was no visitors handbook with instructions and when we contacted the owner the answer was that a previous tenant had taken the book and a new one was being prepared! This is rated as a 4 star cottage which it definitely is not and the owner was less than helpful with our complaints so we left early very disappointed and feeling cheated and upset. All in all my advice is to avoid it because until it has been thoroughly cleaned and updated it is more like an expensive 1 or 2 star."
