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.

Stayed at moonfleet cottage and had great time exploring local walks in fleet and surrounding area. Ideal for couples and families. Can't wait to go back next year. Couldn't ask for better location and views were amazing. Cottage well equipped with everything we needed and would thoroughly recommend staying there.
