A really quintessentially English chocolate-box cottage in a beautiful setting. Lovely homely feel and very well equipped. Perfectly situated for everything we wanted to do around the Studland/Dorset area (although not enough time :-)) and more - would highly recommend for families as the garden is very substantial even though we didn't use it muchRead more. The whole family loved it and we would definitely stay again. Hide

What a gem! From the outside this beautiful thatched cottage with its secluded garden is a picture of times gone by. Inside has all mod cons and is tastefully decorated and furnished. The owners kindly left us some scrumptious goodies as a welcome pack. Thank you

Fantastic Cottage, very picturesque, great location and very much appreciated the welcome hamper. We will definitely come again!

Reviewed by Elaine Derry, November 2016

A comfortable well-equipped cottage in peaceful surroundings. Owners are down the drive if needed but the cottage is very private with a wonderful garden. We didn't have children with us but it would be a fantastic place for children with the garden to explore and a paddock to play in.

Reviewed by Lucy Newman, November 2015

We absolutely loved our stay in this beautiful cottage. Such a lovely location and every detail of the house itself was perfect and so cosy. The kids absolutely loved it all as well. Highly recommended .

Reviewed by Paul Sharp, September 2015

Really enjoyed staying in the cottage. Our 2 year old boy loved all the toys and the play equipment so much that he didn't want to go out! The groceries left by the owners was a very nice touch.
