  • "We were looking forward to a break over the new year and a couple of friends had stayed at this cottage previously and had described it as cosy."

    All in all the cottage was cosy however, we left early as the bedding was so inadequate. The quality of the towels were lovely and they were beautifully white - a pleasure to use. The duvet was without doubt the cheapest most horrible item I have seen in a long time. We used the ensuite room and my sister used the other double. she also said it was thin and inadequate and had to get the duvets off the twin room as she was so cold. I could not face another night under such bedding and left a day before we were meant to. The bedding should surely be the same quality of the towels? When I stripped the bed the duvet reminded me of something from a student flat or bedsit and not the quality you would expect at the price we paid. The kitchen is fine but cluttered - why two stick blenders? It would be so much better if refreshed and thinned down. I sound like a whinge but the quality of bedding is so important and when I think about our stay the good points are heavily overshadowed by the discomfort and lack of warmth. Both sets of friends stayed in the summer and this was not an issue to them. We have friends in Loders and went to look at another rental in the village and I have to say the quality was far, far superior. I am sorry for what must read like very negative but it did disappoint. I suspect you will not be publishing my feedback.

    Thank you for your feedback. I am so sorry to hear you felt the bedding provided was inadequate. Unfortunately due to Covid we have removed the additional quilted bedspreads which we normally provide for each bed as it would be very difficult to clean and dry them between guests. Sadly we cannot provide feather duvets which would be warmer due the possibility of having guests with allergies. We are due to do the annual overhaul of the cottage and will look into getting a new set of duvets specifically for the colder winter months. Property Owner

  • "Superbly well equipped kitchen and a very comfortable cottage that felt like a home rather than a clinical rental property."

    Much more spacious than expected which was great for 4 adults. Good sized bedrooms and bathrooms which are very roomy. The sitting room was charming with the open fire and made a perfect space to celebrate Christmas. We appreciated the tree and decorations. Dorset is wet and muddy in December and with the door opening straight into the kitchen it was impossible to keep the floor clean. We would have liked to have had a mop and bucket so we could clean the floor properly but the only mop we found was broken. A lovely cottage and we'd be happy to return, perhaps in the dry season!

    Thank you for your feedback. My apologies that the mop was broken. I will arrange for a new one to be provided. We look forward to welcoming you again in the future. Property Owner

  • "Lovely house enjoyed our stay very much extremely quiet and peaceful, very well equipped everything there that you could possible need."

    Good location for visiting Jurassic coastline. The only point I would comment on is that the garden could do with a prune as a bit overgrown otherwise excellent property

    Thank you for your feedback. I am so glad to hear you enjoyed your stay at Pippins Loders. I have since been down and cut the garden back so I do hope you will find it a bit less overgrown if you stay with us again. Property Owner

    En-suite was great. Loved the fireplace. Parking a bit tricky and garden overgrown and needed a good sweep. Front room Carpet stained but the room was clean and smelt fresh. We spent a lovely week here in September and none of the above put us off.

  • "Beautiful cottage in a quiet village location, just a few miles from Bridport."

    It has been well maintained, the furnishings, towels and linen were all of a high quality. Only gripes were that the garden was quite overgrown, the grass was about 12 inches long. The BBQ was also very rusty and we felt unusable.

  • "We would be grateful if the following feedback could be given to the owners: 1."

    The lighting in the kitchen and lounge is poor. The lighting in the kitchen is so poor that its not possible to see to properly wash up at the sink when it is dark; 2.The bed linen and towels are all very heavily perfumed, we imagine as a result of the powder/ fabric softener used; because this was our 2nd visit and we were aware of this we brought our own bed linen and towels; 3. It would be nice if the cleaning products available could be expanded; eg there was no hob cleaner and it was v.difficul to keep the hob clean. There were also things that we really appreciated, including: - the view from the bedroom above the kitchen - what a joy to wake up to each morning - the position in the village - our favourite part of Loders/Uploders - the inglenook fireplace, although we didn't light it this time - the garden, in bloom with daffs and other blossom while we were there.

  • "1.The cottage was freezing cold on our arrival ."

    It would have been nice if someone had thought to have turned up the heating 24 hours prior to our arrival. 2. The lighting for reading is poor in both the lounge and the kitchen. This is especially a problem during the short winter days.

  • "We loved the location, comfort, layout and amenities provided within the cottage."

    It was delightful and met our needs, thank you. It also felt well within the needs of Covid precautions. We felt it was slightly let down (but not to the detriment of our experience, for the purpose of feedback only) by the lawn not being cut and by the lack of cleanliness of some of the less important fixtures and fittings. For example, light shade in the kitchen and window edges very spotted by fly droppings. Hairs from other people’s dogs on cushions (we have dogs and so understand the difficulty, but always hoover up after ourselves). All minor points but possibly worth your consideration for future visitors. One equally small point, we felt it would have been more generous to leave one additional rubbish bag. Overall, a lovely holiday, great experience and we would happily go back to Pippins at Loaders, so we thank you for the opportunity. Kind regards Sue Crinson

  • "A beautiful cottage which is very well equipped."

    The beds were so comfortable and the pillows even more so. I had a sneaky peek at the make as I really need one! The bedding and towels were a very high quality and smelt amazing. Lovely traditional lounge - it smelt a bit musty but I assume the cottage is old. We had plenty of room for the 4 of us and our 2 dogs. The garden was safe and secure with a large table to relax. The views from the bedroom window were incredible and waking up to the sound of cows was lovely. The information we were given by the owner was great, really detailed instructions for walks and where to eat. The village has 2 pubs, Loder's Arms - the closest - was lovely. Very friendly with a lovely big garden and amazing food, tapas was gorgeous. The Crown Inn, about a 10 minute walk, was smaller, definitely book, pie night on a Wednesday was amazing!!! Lamb and mint pie was delicious, again very friendly. Both pubs are dog friendly. We had a fabulous week in Pippin's. Definitely recommend it and Skye cottages, communication was excellent. Thank you.

    There is plenty to do and see in this part of Dorset and some good walks from the cottage. Practical bonuses were the decent sized fridge/freezer and the downstairs loo! We’d definitely like to go back again in the future.

    Cottage is more spacious than it looks and there was hanging wardrobe space in all 3 bedrooms, something that isn't clear from the photos. The christmas tree, decorative lights and ornaments were very much appreciated. We took 2 cars and managed to park one right outside the cottage on the (very quiet) road as well as using the rear parking space. Would not hesitate to return here.

    It was quiet, yet not far from everything you need. The local scenery is beautiful. The view of the green rolling hills at sunset from the pub garden at Spyway will stay with me as the autumn arrives. The house was very clean and cosy. The thick wall kept the front room cool as the weather warmed up, and the sunny garden was lovely to relax in.

    The bed’s were really comfortable and clean, had a good sleep every night. Only downside is that I couldn’t clean the property very well before we left due to there not being any cleaning things only dettol wipes. Just wish the weather had been better so we could take advantage of the nice garden.

About the location


Lyme Regis 10 miles; West Bay 2 miles.

The attractive market town of Bridport grew up around the River Brit, and was shaped by its extensive history of rope and net making. The long, wide streets and alleyways between the houses were once where the flax strands were twisted into rope, while today those streets are filled with an interesting variety of shops, restaurants and inns. Bridport’s market is regularly featured on the River Cottage TV programme. 2 miles south of Bridport is the dramatic Jurassic coast at West Bay, now a World Heritage Site, home to the backdrop for TV's Harbour Lights and the coastal setting for popular Broadchurch, whilst the picturesque resort of Lyme Regis is within 10 miles. A superb base for exploring wonderful West Dorset.
