Ideally located in the countryside, but just a very short drive to the sea - it's a perfect base for exploring the beautiful Dorset coastline. The cottage is situated up a lane just off the Wareham to Corfe road, so it's safe for children to play. There is also a large playing field/playground nearby. The cottage is well equipped and comfortably slRead moreeeps 4 adults and two children. The single storey layout and open plan lounge/dining room/kitchen is ideal for young families. We'll be back!

Good location. Cottage spotlessly clean, attractively decorated. Spacious lounge, diner, kitchen - meant we were were all together in the same living area. Dog friendly - garden is dog secure, but quite small. Nice and quiet in the evening. Ample off-road parking. Good local pub just down the road (also dog-friendly).

The beds were actually quite comfortable and the sofas too. The TVs were a nice touch and the big open space was great for my son. If you take a baby that needs the travel cot I would take a mattress as well. My in laws loved it so much they want to go to the cottage next door just them next. There was a lot to do and Wareham was a close walk. It hRead moreas a market on Saturdays. We were so close to a lot of things and we didnt even have to travel far or long for Sea Life. Hide

We had a great week and loved the proximity of the national park as we took our dogs with us. The barn was lovely, clean, bright and spacious with a big living room and plenty of space for the 6 of us and our dogs. The kitchen was well equipped but could have done with a few more plates and cutlery. Its always handy to have a dishwasher and a washiRead moreng machine with kids and dogs! The beaches and surrounding areas were lovely, we could walk into Wareham which had shops, cafes and restaurants. Hide

Provision for the dogs very safe and adequate around the property, with a 'dog walk' across the road. In the countryside, yet a few minutes drive to Wareham for shopping and interest visits. Many attractions in the area.
