  • "Had problem finding washing up bits, so contacted the owner who helped: the bits were behind a door which looked fixed but was in fact hinged."

    The train noise was not a problem but the traffic on the A37 could be heard if the windows were opened. There are no short walks nearby so a minimum of about 4 miles for a loop.

  • "A lovely cottage."

    It was far enough away to feel like you were in the middle of nowhere but so easy to get on to the main road to explore the local area. The cottage itself was super cute and quaint, the facilities were everything that was needed with great Wi-Fi.

  • "We totally enjoyed our stay at Pippins, it's a lovely cottage with charm and character, situated in a beautiful location within driving distance to Towns and attractions and the number of beaches."

    The rear garden was ideal for dogs, enclosed with a long grassed area and beautifully landscaped with a suntrap patio area. The cottage was clean and comfortable and from our experience offered great wi-fi coverage and the facilities to make our stay extremely enjoyable. We will definitely be returning in the future!!

  • "Need to update some info as there was a microwave which meant I brought different food."

    Also some new good sized mugs would be nice, I ended up using Costa coffee cups. The 4 mugs supplied were not good. Cottage was ideal for my trips out.

  • "The cottage does not have wifi, which was a nuisance as I had wanted to use it to find details of places to visit, etc and to receive emails."

    It was not the ideal house for two ladies in their eighties, mostly because of the rather awkward stairs but otherwise it was great. We particularly enjoyed the garden which was quiet and secluded.

  • "Would have been good to have WiFi and a dishwasher would have been useful."

    The fences in the garden were a bit low our labs could have jumped over them. Most of the facilities were very good for such a small cottage. Not too good if the weather is bad as there weren’t many books or games and the tv channels were limited. Cosy lounge we found the heating to be good and the bed comfortable. Parking was a bit cramped but ok. Enjoyed the break .

  • "We won’t be going back."

    It was poorly appointed, ancient TV, shower was a joke, kitchen tatty, poor lighting. Steps down to property too narrow for ordinary use. No WiFi isn’t acceptable either.

  • "Cottage was lovely."

    Nice touch was the welcome pack of juice and biscuits. Only downside was fridge was under the stairs and there was no light in there so had to use the torch provided to find anything as it was so dark, the other was there was absolutely no where in the bathroom to put toiletries, we had to put things into the bath. Otherwise perfect . Would definitely go there again and use Sykes

  • "Appreciate that the cottage is an old property but when you have to empty a dehumidifier twice a day and the place smells damp and the sofa in the lounge feels damp and smells of wet dog, it's not what you really want."

    Shower in bathroom was impossible to use as you basically had to climb over the toilet to enter! Just as well there was a bath. The location was good and there was no disturbance from the trains passing at all. Would not book this cottage again.

About the location

DORCHESTER

Weymouth 7 miles.

A trip to Dorset is not complete without visiting the market town of Dorchester, with its Roman roads, museums and a wide selection of pubs and restaurants. Enjoy a scenic walk around Maiden Castle, the largest hillfort in England, or visit the County Museum which has a room devoted to Thomas Hardy, born just two miles away in Bockhampton. Just seven miles away are the glorious gently shelving beaches and picturesque harbour of Weymouth, and the rugged peninsula of Portland, linked to the mainland by Chesil Beach, part of the breathtaking World Heritage Coastline. In fact, you’ll find yourself so intoxicated by Dorset’s magic spell, you won’t want to return home at the end of your stay!
