  • "This cottage is just perfect."

    The owners have thought of everything and it is just right for two. The decor and fittings are all to a very high standard. The garden is a suntrap and great for relaxing. The location itself makes a great base for getting about. We have stayed twice and will definitely be back. Wonderful!

  • "WOW! This cottage is just gorgeous."

    Very well appointed, extremely comfortable and upon arrival it was absolutely spotless. Nice welcome pack too (thank you). I can't fault it. The parking space is, as the listing says, tight but part of the fun was seeing if I could get my Yeti into a space that was Yeti plus 6" first time. If you're thinking about booking this cottage; think no more, just book it! You won't regret it. The village itself is beautiful and surprisingly quiet and the natives are very friendly :)

    We couldn't have wished for a better cottage to stay at this Easter weekend. Fabulous hospitality from the Hosts, Wonderful village location with easy access to all the tourist spots. Immaculate cottage packed with everything you could wish for. Totally blown away with the level of detail. We will certainly stay again and will be recommending this cottage to all our friends and family.

  • "The cottage is lovely."

    Everything you need is there and all is pristine. We did have a slight problem with the shower. The temp gauge was very stiff. The location is good. The parking although a little tight was fine for our Fiesta. All in all a wonderful stay.

  • "What A lovely holiday home."

    It was perfect for our winter break, with all facilities high spec and immaculate. We certainly enjoyed the welcome pack, in particular the lemon drizzle cake enjoyed with the complimentary wine! There was no issue parking,:we have a fairly big car and just loaded tge car up in front of tge cottage. There are plenty of local walks and the local shop is well stocked. A real treat for us was the local pub The Greyhound; the ‘locals’ were so friendly amusing us with stories about the village as well as useful information.. We will definitely return!

  • "The cottage was ok, but was very disappointed about the promised parking - the space and access to park was extremely tight because of the small parking space and narrow lane outside - probably possible for a Fiesta-type, maybe possible for a Focus-type with great care and difficulty, impossible for ours (Passat) ."

    .. of 13 comments in the guest book this year, 6 were critical of the parking ...nothing on the website suggested there would be any difficulty, and the photographs of the drive are out of date and misleading (the neighbour has erected a fence alongside the drive, adding to the problems) - cottage information definitely needs updating.

  • "Cosynook Cottage is absolutely fabulous and aptly named."

    The interior has been refurbished to an extremely high quality and loved the tartan / country theme down stairs. The kitchen was extremely well equipped and you felt like you were in your own little haven with plenty of walks on the doorstep. Would also like to mention about the parking - several comments below have said it’s not suitable for their vehicles- we didn’t struggle at all and managed to park our medium sized saloon on the parking space every day, we are sure you would even be able to fit a small 4x4 their too, so please don’t let that put you off! We would love to come back to cosynook very soon

  • "Loved the cottage, it was sparklingly clean and well appointed."

    The quality of fittings and fixtures was superb. It was obvious that a great deal of time and thought had gone into the furnishing of Cosynook. We are used to the high standard of Holiday Property Bond accommodation so we were delighted that this cottage equaled that standard.

  • "Clean modern well appointed Holiday cottage."

    Owners have spent time and money on a recent update. Parking adjacent to the cottage is tight but is not suitable for large vehicles! Minor criticism kitchen cutlery is difficult to clean due to bonded surfaces type design also the addition of basic butter/dinner knifes in addition to the steak knifes supplied would be an improvement. May return at some point but only out of peak season.

The property

Tucked away in the peaceful Dorset village of Winterborne Kingston, beside the River Winterbone, is Cosynook Cottage, a characterful end-terrace property that provides the perfect getaway for a couple wanting to enjoy the tranquility of rural Dorset, whilst also being within easy reach of the coast and its bustling seaside towns.

Park your car on the driveway and make your way inside this picturesque thatched cottage, hanging your coat and kicking off your shoes in the hallway, before discovering an inviting living/dining room, thoughtfully styled with matching tartan print on the walls and armchair, making you feel right at home as you sink into the sofa and flick on the Smart TV while the cosy log burner effect gas fire fills the room with warmth.

Set the dining table and join together for a romantic evening meal, lovingly prepared in the newly fitted kitchen, housing all of the appliances you could wish for, or open the patio door onto the enclosed garden and enjoy an alfresco meal in the evening sunshine.

The spacious double bedroom boasts a luxurious carpet, ample storage and a handy en-suite basin and WC, while the main bathroom on the ground floor offers a P-shaped bath with shower over, so you can grab a refreshing rinse or take time for yourself with a long soak in the tub.

The Greyhound Hotel is just at the end of the road and serves food, should you feel like taking a night off from cooking, while a community shop can also be reached in walking distance, perfect for picking up any last minute essentials, while nearby Bere Regis offers a pub, an ice cream shop and a garage/convenience store.

Here you will be within easy reach of a host of attractions, including a paintball centre, for those feeling adventurous, while animal lovers will enjoy discovering Higher Hyde Heath Nature Reserve, home to a range of rare reptiles, and Monkey World - an ape rescue centre, home to endangered primates.

Be spoilt for choice by beach days out, with Poole, Bournemouth and Weymouth all within 20 miles.

Poole's beaches are closest, along with its RNLI Lifeboat Museum, performing arts theatre and harbour, from which you can access Brownsea Island, the largest of the harbour islands, owned by the National Trust and partly managed by the Dorset Wildlife Trust, home to a castle and wildlife centre.

Bournemouth's vibrant Victorian pier and Oceanarium will provide hours of entertainment; stroll along the seafront towards the picturesque sandy beaches of Alum Chine and Sandbanks Beach, which boasts incredible English Channel views and is particularly popular for watersports such as kite surfing.

The market town of Blandford Forum is a short drive north and provides the perfect gateway to the Cranborne Chase AONB, where walkers will be rewarded with unspoiled views and picture-perfect villages, and Dorset AONB, which encompasses dramatic cliffs, rolling hills and glorious sandy beaches.

You will not be short of wonderful day out opportunities from this idyllic couple's holiday cottage.
