Lovely setting overlooking fields, peaceful and a nice setting. The cottage was equipped with everything you needed and nice and clean. The king size bedroom with walk in shower was ideal for disabled as my wife has problems walking. The cottage was ideal sites for trips to Weymouth and the coast also I land to Salisbury. Great holiday, Thanks.

This is a relatively new property on a site with several other cottages, presumably all under the same management, and we were very happy with the comfort and facilities provided. Situated a couple of miles from Blandford Forum, it is ideally placed with only short distances to travel to the coast and the other amenities of Dorset.
