  • "Bramble cottage is a beautifully presented property in a lovely location."

    The local beaches have ample parking and are easily accessible, most are dog friendly at least in one direction. The cottage was absolutely immaculate with all necessary facilities. The beds were very very comfortable. Before we arrived we were slightly concerned with some previous comments regarding the parking/busy street and garden. We managed to park on the street opposite the property every time we went out and came back, there was never any issue parking (early July). The road is busy but I wouldn’t say it was too noisy. The garden is absolutely lovely, we had perfect weather and spent time in the garden every day. We have 2 dogs, one of which is a professional escape artist, the garden is 100% secure. I was never concerned about letting the dogs out. Overall I wouldn’t hesitate to book this property again. The only negative - not enough coat hangers

    Dear Jane So pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Bramble Cottage and for your kind and informative comments. We will order some more coat hangers. Hopefully you will visit Bramble Cottage again soon. Best wishes Nick & Sally Property Owner

  • "Pretty cottage in picturesque village with 2 great pubs serving lovely food."

    The cottage was everything I anticipated it would be and can highly recommend it. I chose it for the location as I wanted to visit Lyme Regis, Weymouth, Portland and Lulworth Cove. All areas were well within reach and the coastal journeys to them were beautiful. We will return!

  • "I was surprised by the lack of Covid-19 preventative measures at the cottage, for example hand gel inside doors."

    Having stayed at another Sykes property earlier in the year, I felt the measures here were a little lacking.

  • "The cottage is lovely!"

    Well stocked with nice quality, comfortable furniture and well equipped in the kitchen. It was tricky to park near the house at times due to its position on the road but this wouldn’t put us off returning. The location is beautiful and we loved West Bay and fossil hunting on Hive beach. Easy distance for visiting Lyme Regis and other lovely surrounding areas. Two big thumbs up from this family of four!

  • "There was traffic noise at the front of the house and no pavement on that side of the road."

    Getting across the road could be tricky especially with young children or those who are less mobile. Parking was sometimes hard to find and not always available near the cottage. On the positive side the cottage was very well equipped especially in terms of kitchenware. It was comfortably furnished. The big plus was being able to walk across the fields to Hive beach. A lovely cottage in a very picturesque village in a beautiful area.

  • "Lovely cottage."

    The garden was amazing and very dog friendly. Garden furniture was the best we have had at a cottage. Parking wasn’t an issue mainly got on the road outside . Plenty of walks from the house and we used the books provided. We managed to eat at the top marquee at hive beach cafe twice, anchor inn and the three horseshoes would recommend all of them but do book well ahead because of the covid restrictions. We had a lovely 2 weeks.

    The weather was awful but the cottage was gorgeous and the pub next door was great too.

  • "As keen domestic waste recyclers we were disappointed that there were no separate collection boxes for glass, plastic etc."

    In addition the instructions around disposal of rubbish in black bags was incomplete/ misleading. More clear instructions and help in recycling waste would be a real plus for us. Otherwise, the cottage was perfect and we would recommend this property.

  • "The first thing to say is that this is a lovely, extremely well equipped cottage within a short walk to the beach, with other lovely walks nearby."

    There is, of course, a but.......don't be lulled into thinking "it's a village, how much traffic can there be"! Parking and the traffic noise are a nightmare. Not only is the cottage right on the road running through Burton Bradstock, it is also where the road narrows allowing only one car through. Subsequently you have cars and lorries outside the window idling in a queue, or revving up to rush through. Traffic noise can start early, and two of the three bedrooms are at the front of the house and are unsuitable for light sleepers. Even those of us who normally slept well were woken early (we are talking 5.30 one morning and certainly by 7.00). As the cottage is right on the road, trying to get to the other side of the road where the pavement is can be tricky and time consuming, particular with dogs (equally I can imagine with young children). I looked for Donkey Lane where one site said to park and frankly this is illusionary at best, a narrow lane for single file traffic. Parking on roads nearby was a bit hit and miss and, I suspect during holiday season a parking space would be a rare find. The garden is lovely but you do have to pass the kitchen window and lounge of the cottage next door which feels a little odd, particularly at night when taking the dogs out for a last wee. Despite the lovely cottage I would not book again, and neither would any one else who stayed with me. Lack of sleep and parking do not over ride the plus points of the cottage itself.

  • "Had an amazing time and are already planning to return next year!"

    Cottage is amazing and situated in a beautiful village with incredibly beautiful walks around the area. My only criticism is that I feel the 5 o clock check- in is far too late and think 3 o clock is much more suitable, especially if you have travelled a long way!

  • "Cottage was beautiful and very comfortable."

    Large back garden which was great especially as we had a dog and a 10 month old baby with us. Although the cottage has no parking it is easy to park on near by roads. Great location to visit many beaches, pubs and cafes. Will be looking to book again next year.

    Both cottages are very well furnished, clean and very comfortable. We will definitely be back as not only do the cottages exceed expectations but both the pubs less than 2 minutes walk away do amazing evening meals.

  • "Lovely cottage - everything was just as stated."

    I do think it Soho’s be worth flagging to customers that the cottage is on the main through road of Burton Bradstock. We have 2 young children and it was a bit nervewracking crossing the road with them. Also a real shame that you can’t recycle paper and plastic. You’d think Dorset would be a bit more progressive!

    As a family it ticked everything on the box. After a crazy, busy time for us we have all reconnected as a family, enjoyed playing cards and monopoly, walked to the park, pub and beach. Breathed in fresh sea air and spectacular scenery. Eaten good food (and bad) and embraced all that sunny Dorset had to offer. Thank you and we will be back. We didn't want to leave!!

  • "Everything was perfect, all new furniture and fittings and incredibly clean and loved, new carpets and pristine bedding and towels."

    The garden was immaculate and plenty of room for our miniature schnauzer to play. Location is excellent, central to village with 2 pubs serving good food, a post office and petrol station and beautiful dog walks through the field to the beach or a circular through the village. We were fortunate to have wonderful weather, so got to the lovely beaches and cafe's in Dorset every day. Dream cottages were superb and accommodating and would definitely book again- Stayed July 2017
