    The welcoming is person centred and we were gifted with a bottle of bubbly to celebrate our anniversary. The cleanliness is outstanding as well as the comfort of the home. (I've even taken photos of the bedding and bed to get at home). We never knew the owners had been in the garden to maintain the hottub, privacy is 100%. If I could recommend anything, it would be to have some lighting where the allocated parking is. We couldn't check in until 17:00pm, therefore the parking area was very dark and feel it would benefit from a security light to help identify which parking space is yours and when unloading the car...but it's only a suggestion. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone seeking a relaxing home from home experience with extra perks of the hottub!! The Royal Oak and Drax Inn pub are a gentle 30 minute stroll away, the river walk is pleasant and idyllic. Both pubs cater for you and your dogs and had a warm, cosy and friendly atmosphere.

The property

This wonderful cottage is located in a tranquil, rural setting in the picturesque hamlet of Shitterton within the village of Bere Regis.

A very well-appointed barn conversion with vaulted, beamed ceilings, creating a modern retreat in keeping with its country theme.

Perfect for families or friends to come together, Oak Cottage provides tradition and charm, reflected through its quality furnishings and thoughtful décor.

Enjoy spending time in the sitting room with the woodburning stove warming up those wintry evenings and your very own (not so) mini bar* is the perfect opportunity to relax with a glass of something refreshing accompanied by a tasty treat.

The kitchen features painted dove grey units and granite counter tops, with a dining table close by, providing seating for six people.

For those extra facilities that you may need, a helpful utility room is on hand, equipped with a washing machine and dryer.

As the night draws in, you will be spoilt for choice between the delightful bedrooms on offer, from a ground floor king-size bedroom, to the additional king-size and twin rooms positioned on the upper level.Ample storage and stylish furnishings provide somewhere of quality to enjoy a peaceful night's sleep.

A family shower room, ground floor en-suite and ground floor cloakroom complete the accommodation, matching that of a hotel standard.

Once you have explored indoors, spend a lazy afternoon in the enclosed garden, a spacious well-maintained area with gravel and lawn sections, a barbecue for a sunny day, and a hot tub for pure relaxation.

This holiday cottage really does provide a luxurious holiday base from which to seek out all that this lovely area has to offer, from the local historic market towns of Dorchester, Wareham & Wimborne to the stunning Jurassic Coast or the Blue Flag beaches of Poole & Bournemouth.
