Excellent location to get around. Property is on the outskirts of a small village. Single track roads in and out our village. Property accommodation was excellent and rural. Close to Dursleys Door, Ludworth Cove and Dorchester & Wareham close by.

A great location, mostly quiet with the occasional large tractor going past. A single track road in either direction, to get to the cottage but that was not overly an issue. With full occupancy parking may be a challenge, again there is additional parking not that far away. Some of the furniture was a little tired but Overall it was a very pleasantRead more place to stay. Hide

Loved our stay at this cute cottage. We were so comfy and cosy here and were just able to switch off and relax. The cottage was spotless and had everything we could possibly need. Would definitely go back and highly recommend. Lorraine and Eve were very thoughtful and left us a lovely card and gifts. Hope to return soon

A lovely quiet location situated within easy reach of many attractions such as Lulworth Cove. It is isolated so a car is essential but the remoteness for us was an attraction.

This is a lovely, intimate cottage ideal for the three of us. Location is down a very quiet country road but be aware of occasional fast-moving tractors. Well equipped kitchen, comfy sofas and good beds. Given that it is a converted barn it has limited windows and so the views from inside the property are slight but as soon as you step outside you Read moreare in beautiful countryside. The drive into the property is steep - alternative parking in a nearby lay-by if that is a worry. Hide

Very nice peaceful cottage. We maintained except the Currans downstairs and the front bedroom need replacing as a few at the ends were broken and could not close them properly but otherwise very nice.

We loved the little barn. It was clean and everything we needed for our baby was provided. Thank you so much! We will be back.
