A beautiful little cottage, perfect for up to a family of 4. Very cosy and warm. The wood burner is fantastic and really gives out some serious heat. We were very comfortable there. Great location and only short drives to Dorchester, Weymouth and Bournemouth.

The property was exactly as depicted on the website. Having the pub next door was a lovely bonus. We found the staff friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Would gladly stay again :)
