  • "Very pretty cottage situated in a lovely little village."

    Lovely walks and a good location for days out to Abbotsbury, Portland and Weymouth town centre. Lime Regis and West Bay both under an hour away. Well equipped kitchen. Nice spacious bathroom downstairs. Main bedroom has a nice ensuite shower. The beds were firm (not our personal preference). There were plenty of linen and towels and lots of storage space in bedrooms. Pretty front and back gardens. There is a pub/restaurant in the village.

  • "Highly recommended."

    A lovely comfortable, warm and cosy cottage. Well stocked amenities. Great communication from owners. A good number of walks directly from the cottage door. Had some lovely chats with locals on our walks. Welcoming and friendly at the nearby Elm Tree pub. Great food.

  • "A lovely cosy cottage and very well equipped."

    We struggled with a few appliances as there were no instructions, hence 4 stars. Also we couldn’t control the fire which blazes away! On the plus side, we didn’t realise there was an en-suite bathroom which was a HUGE plus and should be in the details. The pub was fantastic and the smithy great for Christmas presents! Very good area for walking too. We will return!

  • "The property was great, the local pub, The Elm Tree, was very welcoming and had a good selection of beer, wine and food."

    If I was to be picky, the only surprise was how unfriendly the locals were, no one was keen to respond to a greeting, only offering criticism whilst we unloaded the cars.

    The trouble is when first arriving at the cottage and trying to unload your belongings you have to block the road. Usually this is not a problem but occasionally some other resident is prevented from driving past. I explain all this to our punters. It has happened to us too but I apologies to the driver and move my car further along where there is room to park and other cars to pass. There will always be some getting upset at having to wait a few minutes. Property Owner

  • "It wasn't made clear on the description of the property that the garden had a shared access for the neighbour and this could have been a problem as we have a nervous dog."

    The cottage was lovely and a great location to visit beaches and visitor attractions. There was a lovely walk down to the Fleet from the cottage which we loved. There was no welcome pack or visitor book which may be due to covid but would have been appreciated. We had a couple of issues during our stay which the owner resolved quickly.

  • "Fabulous cottage."

    Very clean and cosy. In a lovely spot which is enhanced by having a pub next door which serves great beer and food. Everything in the cottage was well thought out and of a high standard. The only thing worth mentioning for future guests is the parking. If you like to have your car near you it may be an issue. There were quite a few cars trying to park in the small area just past the cottages so you could find your car has to be parked a little walk away. Was not really an issue for us but may be for some people.

  • "Everything about the holiday was great."

    Communication from the cottage owner was excellent and they couldn't have been lovelier or more helpful. All instructions were thorough and clear. The cottage itself was perfect and very welcoming (the welcome pack including a pack of Lovehearts was an extra touch that we really appreciated). The location of the cottage was perfect for us, with walks and a really good pub so close by. Lovely, quiet area. The whole experience was very dog-friendly too - our dogs loved it at the cottage. We are already planning our next trip back.

  • "The village and surrounding countryside is beautiful with lovely walks especially down to The Fleet."

    Parking was difficult. The mattress on the bed was not to our liking being far to firm and leaving us with broken sleep and aching bones. The cottage was spacious, very clean and well equipped. The terrace is an excellent addition. Deliveries at 0300 hours were disturbing and suspicious.

  • "We feel that the property is not suitable for two couples."

    Excellent for one couple! In the second bedroom there is no wardrobe, you cannot sit and read in bed as there is no headboard as the bed is against the window. The kitchen sink drains smelt every day. The oven needed cleaning and there were quite a few cobwebs around the property. During this Covid time we expected it to be cleaner. Property situated in a lovely quiet village, excellent pub around the corner and great country walks.

  • "The cottage was beautiful."

    It had everything you need for a wonderful stay. The owners were excellent and the communication was great. The only thing I would say is that the cleaners turned up 15 minutes early and stood in the front garden waiting for us to leave. We were trying to get everything packed and it just seemed a little rushed. They were very friendly but would have preferred them to have popped back when we had left. Overall though I would definitely recommend Stepping Stones cottage to everyone.
