The cosy cottage is in a lovely rural location (easy to find) with roughly an hours drive to Bournemouth. It is a modern cottage, it has everything you would need with such a comfy double bed you wouldnt want to get out of.

A lovely comfortable, fresh, light and airy modern cottage with everything you could need for your stay. Sian and family were very welcoming, and we had a really enjoyable stay. You will need a car, as everything is a short drive from the cottage.

Spacious and very clean, lots of parking space, nice views and quiet. In the evening you had deer come into the garden to eat the fallen apples. Thoroughly recommended.

This cottage is situated in an ideal location. It was in a clean condition and the beds were very comfortable, however, the owners did not make any effort to welcome our family and their were little details which made our stay only satisfactory and improvements are necessary.

The cottage was bright and airy, clean and well decorated. The main bedroom was spacious with plenty of storage and both the en suite and main bathroom were a good size. Location was good,in the countryside but not too far away from the shops and local pubs.

Excellent master bedroom, cottage comfortable light and airy.

Reviewed by John, 22nd April 2017

Nice bright cottage in a nice location but not as quiet as we would have liked as it was along side a busy country lane having said that the location of the property was convenient for many attractions. Did not meet or see the owner at all the whole week which was a bit odd.
