  • "Willowbrook Cottage is a beautiful cottage in a very pretty part of Dorset."

    The cottage is kept to a very high standard of cleanliness and comfort. It is a credit to the owners. Every effort has been made to make our stay as easy and comfortable as possible. There are many delightful walks and a farm shop nearby. We were very happy and have already booked a return visit.

    We did not lack for anything in the kitchen and appreciated the welcome package. There are very good local walks and pubs and we enjoyed sitting in the garden listening to the stream and looking at the view with a drink. The neighbour and dogs were also very friendly.

    We are so pleased you had a lovely holiday and absolutely delighted you have already booked to return next year, thank you very much, kind regards, the owners Property Owner

  • "Communication with Louise the owner was great and she couldn’t do enough for us knowing we were travelling with a 2 year old."

    The cottage was a home from home and was very comfortable. The garden was secure (essential for a toddler and dog!) and had beautiful views across the countryside. Neighbour’s who live there permanently were really nice and had dogs also so we weren’t worried about our dog woofing. Location was great for pub across road and only a mile walk to pub in Puncknowle too. Only 10 minute drive to West Bay and Bridport. Would definitely stay again if we were staying in West Dorset.

    Thank you for your lovely feedback and so good to hear that you had a comfortable stay. It was kind of you to mention about your little one and the secure garden which will help potential future guests. We hope you will return to West Dorset again. Kind regards, the owner Property Owner

  • "We had a wonderful stay at Willowbrook, we couldn't have hoped for a better place to spend our Christmas."

    Louise and Dave had so kindly decorated the house, it was such a surprise and added a really lovely touch to our break. The treats both for me and Paddy and for Toby were a really nice touch too and very thoughtful. The house itself was spotless and the best equipped holiday home we stayed in. Really comfortable bed and very quiet so we slept really well and it was a very warm and cosy house too, we really like how the living room was set up and the sofa was very relaxing. The local area was great with lots to do and the walk directly from the cottage was great too, I even went for a swim in the lake around the corner..

    Thank you so much, your feedback means a lot to us, it was lovely to hear you had such a good break; the lake is a beautiful place to visit and we’re impressed you had a swim, kind regards - The Owner Property Owner

  • "I can wholeheartedly recommend Willowbrook Cottage."

    Beautiful views of countryside and hills from the peaceful garden which is well fenced for your dog's safety. The cottage itself is very clean and modern with a traditional exterior. It's furnished and equipped with great attention to detail. The beds are comfortable in roomy bedrooms, in fact the twin room is much bigger than it looks on the photograph. Towels are large and fluffy. There's plenty of storage for clothing and empty shelves in the kitchen for your food items. The owner is always on hand by text to help with any query in a most friendly manner. I've tried in this review to detail some of the things I look for in a holiday cottage, hope this helps.

    Thank you very much for your comprehensive review of Willowbrook which means so much to us and will be very useful for prospective guests; we are absolutely delighted that you are returning next year. Kind regards - The Owner Property Owner

    Lovely bedrooms, modern bathrooms, very comfortable lounge and a well equipped kitchen. We visited in early November and it was always warm and cozy. We found a number of excellent farm shops with local produce and the local pub is just steps away. The outside space at the front of the cottage is enclosed so safe for kids and dogs and there is off road parking and storage for roof boxes and bikes. Highly recommended.

    We had everything we needed on the doorstep. Beautiful places to visit and glorious sunshine. We couldn't ask for more. My family and I were all really happy with it and feel that it certainly has the wow factor. My daughters 12 & 13 loved their twin room and how it was beautifully furnished. The fire alarm was a little too sensitive and we set it off a few times but that could be my cooking.
