Superb location, comfy cottage, friendly welcome and the most comprehensive folder of local attractions we've ever found.

This was our first visit to Dorset and we could not have picked a better cottage or location. The cottage is spotlessly clean and well equipped and the garden is a delight to walk around and to sit and enjoy the view across the fields and hills. The location is perfect for local walks and is within 30 minutes of the coast and many other attractionsRead more in the county. The owners are friendly and helpful, but unobtrusive. We intend to stay again next year. Hide

We have stayed in many cottages around the UK but The Linnie beats them all hands down. To wake up every morning in such a peaceful setting, beautiful gardens and a delightful house with a million dollar view is just unbeatable!

The best cottage I have ever stayed in without doubt. Perfect quiet location looking over the hills with the Jubilee trail on the doorstep. Lovely, comfy, warm and well equipped with extremely friendly and helpful owners next door. Can't wait to go back in the spring! Thank you.

A beautiful cottage, immaculately clean and well equipped. The photos do not even begin to do the setting justice. Peaceful, relaxing and just what we needed. The hosts were very welcoming, making sure everything was just right. Our best cottage holiday experience to date.

The cottage was very nicely decorated and very clean. I am very fussy and cleanliness is important, I couldn't fault it! The owner was very friendly and informative, full of knowledge about the local area. The area was very central to all the places we wanted to visit. If we ever visited Dorset again we would definitely book the Linny.

Reviewed by John, 8th July 2016

This is probably the best cottage we have stayed in. From the warm welcome from Eric and Jane to the delightfully peaceful setting surrounded by the beautifully maintained garden. Eric and Jane are a mine of information about Dorset/Wiltshire's many attractions which are easily accessible from this location.
