We were able to relax in the conservatory which was very warm and had a lovely view.

It was out in the sticks as we say, but that added to the charm. When I looked out over the field and saw a deer with two young ones, made it perfect. Nice and quiet. Very good.
Mr Walter, Fareham, September 2012
A comfortable and clean cottage. The owners were friendly and on hand but didn't interfere in any way. The above made for a very relaxing and pleasurable break. We would definitely consider going there again, or to the other properties let by the owners.
Mr Perry, Gloucester, June 2012
Property was warm and everything worked beautifully. The kitchen was particularly well stocked with all mod cons and cooking equipment. The owners were very welcoming but did not intrude. That part of Dorset is lovely and so quiet and peaceful. Local pubs serve very good food and the markets and farm shops are excellent. As it was Winter the seaside places were 'closed' but West Bay beach is glorious.
