"Lovely accommodation, well equipped, welcoming."
We stayed at the Stables. Sarah greeted us warmly on arrival, letting us in through the remote control secure gates. We were given a fob or could use the keypad to let ourselves in & out during our stay.
The Stables is well equipped with all you need, it's clean & tidy with excellent facilities for the disabled. The bathrooms with the monsoon showers are fantastic. The kitchen has all you would expect from good self catering accommodation, with plenty of cupboard space for food (I have been to some places where they have thought of everything except a space for food storage!). There is a Morrisons and an ASDA a short drive away plus there is a local shop within walking distance.
A couple of things would have made it a 5* like an up to date flat screen TV & WiFi really is a must these days.
All in all a good location, easy to get to places like Portland Bill with a fantastic view along Chesil Beach, Lulworth Cove with Durdle Door is well worth a visit.
Thank you for taking the time to write a review, we are glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Wifi is our next improvement plan.

"Great Location for Seeing Dorset"
The property itself is really nice - clean, well equipped and comfortable with great views from the upstairs lounge over to the fleet lagoon. We were especially taken with the upstairs lounge (there is a downstairs one too) which was something we had never experienced. Just watch your head on the ceilings (took me a week to get used to it - ouch!).
The location is great for touring Dorset. Either east - towards Lyme & WestBay, or west - towards Lulworth & Swanage. With the weather good we spent most time on the coast path. Weymouth & Portland are worth a look as well. Easy to get out to the roads from, there is a bit of traffic noise but wasn't disturbing us unduly.
We'd certainly consider this again next time we holiday down here.
