Located within the rolling picturesque Dorset countryside, this is the perfect spot for guests looking for a relaxing break in peaceful surroundings, with an array of walks from the properties that lead over the picture postcard landscape. With their central location, these cottages are ideal for guests looking to explore the wider area, from Cerne Abbas with its famous giant carved into the chalk hillside, Weymouth Sea Life Park and Marine Sanctuary, Abbotsbury Swannery, to the awe inspiring World Heritage Jurassic Coast that is a must for guests visiting the area, to name but a few.

Friendly hosts, nice touches - flowers and fresh bread in the cottage, stunning grounds for walking the dog. The property is not for those who wish to do a lot of cooking.

Gemmas Cottage is a very comfortable holiday cottage in a beautiful quiet location. The owners were very friendly and Dennis our dog adored the garden.

Lovely cottage with balcony and large garden . But cottage needs attention. WiFi wouldn't work. Super king bed was very comfy!!

Reviewed by Michael, 13th July 2018

The cottage was very clean and well equiped. There was a beautiful large garden which was perfect for our dog and the veranda from the first floor bedroom was a lovely place to sit and take in the views.

Delightful cottage in a lovely location close to coast & countryside. It was lovely to sit on the verandah in the evening & watch the sun go down. Would we recommend this property to a friend? Sorry, but no, not in its present condition.

lovely quiet location - a base for exploring - no amenities in the immediate area but have to travel to the next village: not an issue really. Hosts very welcoming

Reviewed by Glynn, 1st June 2018

A lovely cottage in a great location. Loved the bedroom, which opened out onto a balcony with far reaching views over the owner's land and the countryside. Every comfort available and great Wi Fi. Lots of good walks from the cottage and a great pub in nearby Cattistock with good food. Very importantly for us, it was dog friendly- as were the majoriRead morety of pubs in Dorset we found. Great location for visiting Dorchester, Lulworth Cove (we loved it!) and Lyme Regis to name a few Hide

This was a returning holiday with our two dogs. So peaceful, idylic location, friendly owners and locals in nearest pub (good meals) and local shop. Ideal base for visiting many of Dorsets attractions, Tyneham Village, Lulworth Cove and Durdle Dore to name a few. We will be back.
