The perfect place to recharge our batteries. Good access to coastal towns and amenities as well as quieter spots and good walks. The Snug is equipped with everything we could possibly have needed and more. Hosts were welcoming and available but left us in complete privacy. We will definitely be back.

We had a lovely stay at the Snug . Ideal bolt hole for anyone looking to stay in the beautiful county of Dorset . Very clean everything you needed and more including a very nice welcome pack with essentials and treats . The hosts were very welcoming and on hand if needed. Would definitely recommend.

we had a wonderful stay. The snug is so lovely. Immaculately clean. We were greeted with a welcome basket of essentials we may need which was a lovely gesture. It was a proper home from home with everything we needed. Location wise its great if you have a car as its well placed to access Weymouth and other resorts. The road can be a tad noisy but cRead moreoming from a big city we're used to that and it didn't spoil our stay The hosts were lovely. Hide

Loved the cottage. Very well equipped. Owners on hand if any issues or information about the local area required. We arent tall, but feel tall people would struggle with the upstairs headroom. Hadnt realised the road would be so busy and noisy. That said, we had a brilliant week and would most definitely return.
