"Too short a stay"
We booked Moonfleet for a long weekend whilst family members took part in a Triathlon event in nearby Weymouth. Although this was a brief and very busy stay we all had a wonderful time and can't wait to return to enjoy Moonfleet and the area, in a more relaxed manner.
The house is spacious, comfortable and well equiped and is in a wonderful location just a short walk from Fleet lagoon . It is the perfect place for either an active or a very restful holiday.

"Come and look at the views"
A very comfortable home from home. The views and walks around the area were great. We were 6 adults, a toddler and 5 month old twins with room for us all.
Our grandson particularly loved the playroom.!

"Wonderful holiday, ideal place stay in the area"
We had a lovely week away in this well situated property. The house was very clean and tidy with all amenities to hand. The house is in a lovely area with plenty of places to visit without having to travel far. My grandson particularly enjoyed the upstairs play room. The garden was lovely and we was able to enjoy a bbq. We would recommend the Elm tree pub which is 10minutes away for lovely meals out. We had a lovely week with lovely weather we would most defiantly recommend it to any family and would stay again.

"Peaceful well equipped comfortable cottage"
We found the location very peaceful with great views. The cottage was well equipped and very comfortable, unfortunately we had a problem with the tv which Tania sorted out the very next day with a brand new tv. We had a wonderful holiday here, seeing the badgers in the garden next door every night. This was a great base to explore the area from like monkey world, Portland Bill, Bournemouth and the Jurassic coast. We can highly recommend The Marquis of Granby for excellent food and value, its a must and only a ten minute drive away.
