  • "This cottage was perfect for a stay in lovely Cerne Abbas for a few days as a small group of 3 people."

    The village store, the 3 pubs and the tea room were all in walking distance, as was a view of the Cerne Giant. We used the location as a base to explore southern Dorset. The kitchen is well equipped and the cottage is light and sunny. The outdoor courtyard is appealing. Would be happy to stay again.

  • "We booked this lovely cottage at the last minute when our original booking was cancelled due to 'plumbing problems'."

    We are so pleased as this was in a much better location than our original choice and the property owner had added lovely touches like leaving us some milk, tea, coffee - and biscuits! Also the location was superb in Cerne Abbas within an easy walk of 3 excellent pubs, a village shop and a tea room.
