“Lovely little cottage”

Reviewed 7 Aug 2016

Very comfortable and very we'll equipped cottage. The village very quite with just a local pub very short walk away there is no local shop but a Londis couple of miles down the road there was no cash machine nearby that we could see. Everywhere is close to drive to we found some lovely walks nearby and corfe was a lovely place to visit. There are plenty of booklets in the cottage of places to go and visit. We were lucky the weather was great made such a difference for visiting the beaches etc. The driveway into cottage was tight wouldn't cope with a large vehicle but parking on road would b ok the owner was very welcoming all in all we really enjoyed our stay.

Thankyou for your very positive and constructive review. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. As you say, most of Dorset's attractions are within easy reach of the cottage.
