Thanks for your review of West Lane Cottage. The Thimble Inn has a new landlord (chef) and landlady with effect from late March 2012 and we visited for Sunday lunch on April 1st. A small menu but we tasted a good range between us and all was obviously fresh, home made and delicious. The chef told us that the only thing that had come out of the freezer was our ice and that all that could be home made, would be, and the menu certainly reflects this with homemade bread and brioche, and home cured salmon evident on the Sunday lunch menu. There was also a good smattering of locals in who proclaimed the new residents most welcome and friendly and we agree!
Rectory Road is a small road at right angles to the B314, the High Street running through the village. We do get some farm traffic (especially at harvest time) and some commuters. There is a 30 mph speed restriction, the cottage is double glazed throughout and very few people comment on the traffic. However, if holidaymakers feel that a peaceful lie in is particularly important to them, we would suggest our sister cottage Wren Cottage, Tolpuddle which is beautifully quiet and also offers a countryside view from the bedrooms!
