A perfect cottage for a family get together after lockdown this year. The cottage was located in a quiet area which we loved. The dining area and facilities inside were great for our family.

We were 4 sisters with our husbands and 92 year disabled Mum. The property was ideal for Mum with all facilities for her on the ground floor. Equipped to a high standard, very comfortable and we loved the Eco vibe. The Greyhound Inn was a 1 mile easy walk and was a great local pub with delicious food. Definitely recommended

This is a wonderful property in the heart of rural England. Everyone in the group commented how well they slept at the property. The beds were very cozy and the surroundings very quiet. It's a fantastic place for a short break, or a longer holiday - we are already talking about a return visit in the summer.

For a group of seniors on a walking holiday in Dorset, Lamperts Dairy was a great base for some superb walks. The property was excellent in all ways, accommodation with en-suite rooms first class and the equipment lacked nothing except a second teapot.We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and have rebooked for next year.
