"Perfect in Every Way"

This cottage was a wonderful surlprise. It was beautifully and practically decorated, and its location really excellent...very close to all facilities. The owner, Ashley was both very friendly and helpful, and her thoughtfullness of providing fresh produce and town/area information for us on our arrival was unexpected and very much appreciated. The cottage was luxurious and its facilities helped make our stay totally comfortable and happy for the entire week. It was excellent value. We definitely plan to return to such wonderful accommodation, delightful town and stunning area at some time in the future.

"Great location and sweet cottage"

The cottage itself is sweet. The main bedroom is quite spacious with the second one being on the smaller side. The bathroom and kitchen are very modern and everything is in good condition. I had a very comfortable stay, the house was very clean and well kept. The location is great for pottering round Shaftesbury and also for getting out and about via car. The owner was lovely to deal with, very sweet and helpful which was really appreciated as I was travelling alone with 2 young children.
