What our customers are saying about our Self Catering Holidays In Dorset.
ROSEBLADE - verified booking
"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"

"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."

"Would I return, probably not as we like to explore different locations. Would I recommend The Stables - ABSOLUTELY, 100%. We spent a truly memorable Xmas week here. A lovely property in a lovely location. Sufficiently remote yet close enough to "civilisation" (Dorchester!!!). Our whole family, myself, my wife, our 3 children, their partners and our six grandchildren aged 16months to 12 years. The kids loved watching the cows being milked and feeding the pigs. The whole team at the farm made us feel extremely welcome and pretty much gave us free access to the whole farm. The walks around the farm provide some wonderful views, especially if the weather is fine. The lovely cake awaiting our arrival also doubled as a birthday cake for our eldest son. So, anyone reading this please treat yourselves to a stay at The Stables. I would be very surprised if you were disappointed in any way."

"We had an very nice stay at the Old Forge.There were a couple of minor maintenance issues (broken oven door handle, several blown bulbs and a non functional radiator in the main bedroom). The two bedrooms that adjoin the road next to the pub are not well insulated from the cold or sound so we found it nippy at night (we stayed in late October) and woke a few times around midnight as people left the pub.However, with the log fire lit, the house was very cosy and it was a great base for exploring the area. We visited Charmouth, Abbotsbury, Weymouth, Portland, Dorchester, Lulworth, Corfe, Studland and Swanage without much trouble or traffic problems.There are plenty of nice walks from the property and we never had a problem with parking. Overall, we were happy with our choice to stay here and would probably stay again. A few little issues, but good value for money."
