  • "A well equipped cottage in a beautiful garden setting which feels homely rather than a holiday let."

    Friendly owners who provide everything you need and more besides - the cream tea was delicious - and lots of information about places to visit. Thoroughly recommended for a relaxing holiday.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to give us feedback we really appreciate it. So glad that you enjoyed your time at the cottage and were able to get the relaxing holiday you were looking for. Hope to see you again at some point. Kind regards Angela and Steve Property Owner

  • "An excellent place to stay for a quiet holiday in the Devon countryside."

    Well equipped with everything you need and the hosts even supplied a bottle of wine and some eggs from their hens in the garden on arrival. We had a superb Sunday lunch at the Kings Arms in Stockland which is 20 minutes walk away.

    We are so glad that you had a lovely time and that you enjoyed your stay at the cottage and that the chickens didn't take too many liberties by coming in the house as well as visiting!! We will pass on to the Kings Arms about how you liked the Sunday lunch. We look forward to seeing you again sometime. Kind regards Angela and Steve Property Owner

  • "Beautiful cottage in gorgeous surroundings, it was spotlessly clean and was a cosy home from home, we enjoyed lighting the fire each evening and feeding the birds in the garden."

    Bird watching each day nearly stopped us going out! The cottage is fully equipped with everything you would need. Our hosts were very welcoming and provided us with essentials to start our stay as well as a voucher for a cream tea which was divine. The location is perfect for exploring the Dorset coastline and further afield. We really didn't want to go home. Really hope we can return one day soon.

    Thank you so much we appreciate you writing a review for us. We are really pleased that you enjoyed your stay. We are so glad that you felt the cottage was a home from home and is a great place to get away from it all. We look forward to seeing you again in the future, Angela and Steve. Property Owner

    The cottage itself was fairly big, it had a small library, conservatory overlooking the big garden which was full of birds, squirrels, pheasants etc. The kitchen was a good size with everything you would need and a big walk in fireplace with log burner which we lit every evening so was really warm and cosy.

    I received a very warm welcome - along with a goody tray of refreshments and wine! They visited daily to ensure everything was OK and that I had plenty of wood for the log burner - they even brought freshly laid eggs for me. Their visits were reassuring (particularly as I was on holiday alone and got was snowed in) - they were certainly not intrusive. The cottage itself was exceptionally clean and cosy - even better than it looked in the photographs. The setting was very beautiful and serene, with pheasants and a plethora of small birds in the garden. My only criticisms are that the upstairs shower was not very powerful and had my husband been able to join me for the weekend we may have found the bed a little small - mind you, we are both fatties! The booking process and communication was simple. I would definitely recommend Lane End Cottage at any time of year and I hope to return soon.
