  • "I had stayed the previous week with family and this second week was booked with friends."

    I can only reiterate on my previous feedback. Arne RSPB and Sculpture by the Lake are recommended to visit and are within 5-6 miles of the cottage. The communication was excellent with the owners. The cottage is a delightful find and will definitely book again for a 5th time once dates are released for next year.

    Thank you again Dinah - so great that you enjoyed your 2nd week at Oak with your friends. Many thanks for you feedback. Chris & Julie Property Owner

  • "I had stayed at this beautiful cottage on 2 previous occasions with friends, however this week was with family."

    They loved the cottage with its great location to visit lots of gorgeous bays and surrounding countryside. The hot tub was a massive hit and was used every day. A very well equipped cottage,with the owners leaving us some goodies for our arrival. Great communication from the owner Julie. We're keeping an eye out for availability dates in 2025.

    So pleased to hear that your family enjoyed the cottage as much as you do - thank you so much for your feedback. Many thanks Chris & Julie Property Owner

  • "Great little property with a fantastic size garden."

    The owners have gone to great lengths to make the stay as easy as possible. Suppling eggs, bread, milk, butter, tea and coffee as well as dishwasher tablets and washing pods and even dog treats and dog shampoo, and ice. The size of the property is cozy and ideal for the two of us with our large dog. The owners had made sure the hot tub was hot and ready for our 4pm arrival (this doesn’t always happen in other properties!) The only down side is the traffic noise from the very busy A35 next to the property. It didn’t stop us having a great time while in the garden but I can imagine in the summer it may cause an issue. Also the gravel in the garden was an issue. The dog had the small stones in her paws and would bring them into the house. We would swear and curse treading on them bare foot going to the hot tub, so bring flip flops. We did sweep the path but the gravel gets everywhere. The location is fantastic for anyone with a dog with a walk right on your door step and we were never more than 30 minutes in the car from tourist spots. We had a great time and would definitely recommend

  • "Our second stay at Oak Cottage."

    This cosy and comfortable cottage is very well equipped. The log fire and hot tub are great for relaxing after a day out. The secure enclosed good sized garden is great for the dog. This cottage has so much to offer with lovely walks from the doorstep around the village and around the woods. Ideally situated for day trips out to various places of interest including the beach. The owners are hospitable and friendly. Loved the welcome packs for us and the dog. The guest information folder is a wealth of information and user friendly.

    For once an "enclosed garden" was just that. It was great having a utility room. The house was well equipped & cosy, the hot tub was lovely, if a little temperamental. Plenty walks nearby & a lovely area to explore. We'd certainly like to return. For info parking is a little tight. We went as 2 couples, I think any more than 4 people would be a little cramped but possibly not in the summer as the garden is very spacious. The time on the clock above the table is still 2:45!

    So pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Oak Cottage. If you do return then we can offer additional parking if needed. Thanks for the reminder about the clock. Really appreciate you taking the time to give us feedback - much appreciated. Many thanks Chris & Julie Property Owner

    We travelled as a family - 2 adults and our 2 children aged 12 and 10 years. The welcome pack and (not so) mini bar is a fantastic touch. This is a great property to explore the may things around Dorset and the surrounding area.

    The layout is not what I imagined, but yes plenty big enough for 6. The mini Bar, although a nice touch, we did not use it and for us, more room in the lounge would have been the preference.

    Perfectly located in peace and quiet, but close enough to main routes to get anywhere in Dorset. Comfy beds and sofa, a good smart TV, great wifi. Well equipped kitchen, with all you need to cook anything, with instructions for appliances in the welcome book. We loved the welcome basket, and the hot tub was just fabulous.

    The area is beautiful , lots of interesting places to visit. We enjoyed the boat ride up the river at Wareham especially. The family visited the tank museum, and the monkey sanctuary and we all visited the village taken from the people during WW1 and never returned to them. The pub in Bere Regis is great, the food and the staff were so good. We were allowed to take our dog in with us. The village shop is excellent and has all one would want. And last but not least the Welcome pack was great and even included a bag of dog biscuits . The accommodation was clean, comfortable and had every thing you could possibly want. The hot tub was certainly enjoyed by the children. The garden is totally safe for our dog. The area is super for walking. The neighbours next door were so friendly and we enjoyed the chats. A beautiful property amid beautiful countryside. Thank you for a lovely holiday.

    The cottage has been decorated to a very high standard and was spotless on arrival. The main thing I want to mention is how welcome dogs are! The listing says "dog friendly" - this is an understatement! Every detail has been thought about; stair gate, enclosed garden, dog towels & blankets, treats, poo bags and dog bowls, and location could not be better for dog walks. The only suggestion would be a more significant door mat at the back door to catch the leaves, gravel and wet paw prints! Really enjoyed the hot tub (between showers) and the pantry was a much-welcome addition. We'd love to come back! Thank you for a relaxing break.

    We loved the private garden and hot tub, the beautiful kitchen and bathrooms. Within walking distance (10-15 minutes) to 2 pubs and a local convenience store in the village. The owners have really thought about their guests comfort and we appreciated this! We would love to see the return to the mini bar , and think the only improvements the owners could possibly do is tidy up the tv cables, and possibly add the tv to a moving bracket so all chairs can view. When in kitchen perhaps a pedal bin would be more user friendly and the large knives could do with sharpening (my son is a bit of a chef and these tiny minor things frustrated him!) Would highly recommend to anyone!

The only issue and if feel this should have been mentioned is the proximity of the A35. The noise in the garden is quite loud all of the time, I measured it on a decibel meter and it registered an average of 62 decibels (the amount a washing machine makes).

    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.

    Thank you so much for your lovely comments and we are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Oak.

The owner Julie is also really responsive and accommodating if you need to ask anything. Nothing was too much trouble. Highly recommended and a great base for exploring the beautiful county of Dorset - visiting Wareham, Lulworth, Weymouth, Chesil beach, Portland, Bovington Army, Tolpuddle Martyrs, Dorchester, Bournemouth, Poole, Corfe Castle, Kingston Lacey, Wimbourne Minster to name a few. We will definitely return.

    Showers were the best we have ever had and the cottage was nice and clean throughout. The only downside was that the A35 road is quire close to the cottage and there was road noise which you could hear when sat outside in the garden. Also the flags to the front of the property were quite uneven and I would think could be quite dangerous for small children. The owners live next door in the adjoining farmhouse and were very pleasant to deal with. I would rate this cottage very highly.

    It was warm, with modern bathrooms. The beds were very comfortable. However there were a couple of issues that need to be mentioned. There is constant noise from the A35 behind the property, more noticable from the bedrooms. Also, you appear to be using the back entrance and this area lets the cottage down. Some paving slabs are uneven and wobble and dandelions abound. The gutter over the entrance drips when it rains. Improving this area would match the quality of the interior.

That said, the hamlet in which the cottage is located is charming with any number of wonderful walks from the door and we had a thoroughly enjoyable week’s stay. The garden IS completely - and properly securely - enclosed, so even if you have “escape artists” as we do, you can book this cottage with confidence.

    It is now obvious as to why only the front door of the cottage is shown in the pictures as the farmyard in which it is located is generally shabby and the area is shared with other properties. The cottage is quite dark inside and this means that the lights have to be on during the day. Being located on a farm, there is a big problem with flies, which means that food has to be covered at all times. Additionally it is not very peaceful with a lot of road traffic noise coming from the main A35 trunk road. Overall a very nice cottage with the advantage of having a hot tub, but the location lets it down.

The garden is great for a dog but the highlight has to be the hot tub and we used it every day whilst we were there despite it pouring with rain. There was a lovely welcome pack with eggs, bread, milk, butter, coffee, tea, sugar and local biscuits. Another great idea is 'the not so mini bar' which was hard to resist with all the chocolate, sweets and drinks in there all at very reasonable prices. A local shop is only about a 10 minute walk away and there are walks in the countryside directly from the cottage. This is probably the best cottage we have stayed in and we will almost definately book it again.
