It's in a great, quiet (apart from the gulls) location for exploring the area. The cottage inside a gated courtyard makes you feel safe. Downside is that you have to pay for WiFi and it wasn't that great.

"Cosy" needs replacing with "very small". You dine 6ins from the rubbish bin. They provide you with only 2 of everything. No use for dishwasher. Bedroom cramped, bathroom tiny. No place for hanging bath towels. Had to use clothes drier, would be difficult if needed to dry clothes. No direct access to patio area. Food had to be taken round side of hRead moreouse to minute table. One bin bag and a small piece of cleaning cloth provided, but no cleaning agents for bathroom or kitchen. Worst property ever. Hide

A secluded, key-fob secure set-up of cottages, of which Ammonite is possibly the smallest only sleeping two. We loved it. It was fresh, it was very clean, and it was comfortable as well. Two pubs within walking distance (once lockdown allows). The Freeview tv signal sometimes dropped out on the two tv's. Minor problems. I doubt we would go back as Read morethere are so many other places to see in the UK. But for someone wishing to visit the Jurrasic Coast I would certainly recommend a stay here. Hide

The cottage is pretty much as described, although a fact that we did not appreciate at the time of booking, and is not really a reflection on the property, is that if the weather is poor, which was unfortunately in our case, there is no view and nowhere to sit for a nice drink in the evening, especially as all communal areas are closed at the momenRead moret.
