The cottage is set in a peaceful location with great views from the lounge. The owners are most helpful and take great pride with the garden that surrounds the cottage.

The Kinney is a perfect holiday retreat, a real home from home. Erik and Jane are the most welcoming and considerate of hosts. The goodies on the welcome tray were a real treat. We certainly wouldn't look for anywhere else to stay in Dorset

A perfect property for us in a very peaceful countryside setting with plenty of lovely small towns and villages nearby. The owners were great and respected our privacy.

This cottage is a real home from home with great attention to detail paid to making it as comfortable as possible. The views from the living room are exceptional and the peaceful location very relaxing. It is in a great location for exploring the area with local walks on the doorstep (literally) and plenty of places to visit only short drives away.Read more The owners local knowledge is invaluable for planning your trips!

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

Reviewed by Michael, 16th June 2017

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
