  • "We spent a very pleasant week at Little Acre."

    The property is in a private location with good parking and good wifi. During the week we visited Weymouth by train, Studland beach, Kingston Lacy, Lulworth Cove and the other two days we went for walks in the beautiful countryside around Wool and the river Froome. A property to be recommended.

  • "The cottage was super and in a lovely quiet location within good distances for the area, walks, beaches etc."

    The owners Lyn and Dale were warm and welcoming and gave us lots of new places to visit even though we have been to Dorset many times.Their garden was stunning and it was so kind of them to let us share it and enjoy quiet shady afternoons from the heat of the day. A real credit to them and a great addition to the sykes cottages portfolio. We were so happy we have already booked for next year! Tony Susan and Annie Skellern

  • "Forgive me but I’m not sure what Dream cottages added to our experience/visit over what the owners could have done ( and perhaps do) themselves other than convenience of advertising and of course adding to the overall cost to us!"

    Although all communications were helpful and the phone ones enjoyable and friendly. We were very happy indeed with our stay. Little Acre was great, warm, comfortable in the main and well equipped. Lyn and Dale were kind and helpful hosts. It gave us the relaxing break we needed and the lovely garden, amazing bird life and patio to enjoy the sunshine from were all bonuses. The added treats of tea bags, coffee, milk and biscuits were a generous treat! Thank you! Two minor negatives that didn’t really detract but might for others - the bed was not too comfy and it was good to get back to our own perhaps it needs replacing at the end of this season. Also all the pans are large especially for two people at least one smaller one would help to cook porridge, scrambled egg, mushrooms and other things which do not need much space. Admittedly we couldn’t dine out fully because of Covid regs but even so cooking for two needs facilitating as well as possible. To repeat - we had a very good and enjoyable stay and are grateful to Lyn and Dale very much for that. We would return willingly.

    Thank you for your valuable feedback, we are pleased that you had an enjoyable relaxing break. We are sorry that you found the bed uncomfortable. The owner will look into this as the bed is only a year old. We look forward to welcoming you back to Little Acre soon. Property Owner

Lovely and central for the Jurassic Coast too. Five stars all round!

    The garden is beautiful and a great place to sit out for breakfast. Wool is on the main Weymouth to Waterloo rail line and there are local buses that take you to the coast, so you can beat the traffic stress! The tank museum is within walking distance and is an excellent museum even if you are not military minded.
