  • "Lovely stay at this property,in a nice village with a great pub with very good food."

    Owners and their little dog most welcoming would recommend it for a base to explore the local areas from Weymouth to Bournemouth.

  • "Lovely warm welcome from the hosts on arrival with milk in the fridge and a plate of biscuits."

    The annex is cosy and well equipped with all you need for your stay. It’s in easy reach of the coast and many attractions such as Durdle Door, Lulworth Cove and Swanage steam railway all worth a visit.

  • "Great little garden cottage."

    We used it as a base to work from home and visit family. Great beaches and sights are very close. It was extremely comfortable with all the conveniences thought out. Wifi was decent and bed was super comfortable The host were friendly and the surrounding village was lovely. The only negative is that the shower needs replacing. It's very weak and hard to manoeuvre in the small eaves space. We would definitely return.

    Thank you for your positive feedback. Glad that you enjoyed your stay. As you realize, it is a 'Power Shower' so should be strong. I will certainly check it out and take action if it is faulty. Property Owner

  • "Laurie & Sue really go the extra mile to make sure our stay was comfortable and enjoyable."

    They are very welcoming without being intrusive. We were provided with all the facilities needed and able to relax with a hot drink and biscuits after our long drive. Their love for Dorset is captivating and local knowledge is very useful. The apartment is comfortably furnished and a lot of thought has gone into every detail. We particularly enjoyed being able to sit in their beautiful garden at the end of a busy day. Their little dog Anna was a sweetie and tolerated our more bossy hound. The shower was a challenge for a 6 footer, but we loved Milford St Andrew, the pub, the area with plenty of good dog walks and a very comfortable apartment to return to.

  • "What a lovely, cosy and comfortable cottage, perfectly situated for exploring Dorset and beyond!"

    Laurie and Sue were such welcoming hosts, with a wealth of helpful local knowledge but also gave us our privacy and space. Little England Annex was well equipped, clean and cosy, with a beautiful garden space and footpaths on the doorstep - perfect for dog walking! We didn’t want to leave - there was so much to do in the locality - but we will certainly be back in the future. Thank you for a wonderful, relaxed and restorative holiday.

    BBQ was not available as stated - owners did not expect to be asked for it's use. Would suggest that this property is probably £150-£175 overpriced.

  • "Little England is a lovely cottage set in the garden of a of a beautiful thatched home owned by Laurie and Sue."

    They are a very friendly helpful couple who make you feel welcome from the moment you arrive and are happy to provide advice on the local area. The cottage itself is clean, comfortable and well equipped, you can also make use of the main garden and sun loungers to relax after a day exploring the beautiful Dorset coast and countryside. Milboune St Andrew is a nice village well positioned for visiting the main attractions, it has a small shop and local pub that serves good food. We would certainly recommend staying and will return again.

  • "Such a lovely cottage."

    So clean and peaceful. Lovely owners in the nearby cottage who were lovely; never intrusive and greeted us on arrival with information regarding to the local area. Just a tiny recommendation that a linen basket would have been handy. The weather was so warm, that I could have pegged the washing outside had there been this facility, rather than using the tumble drier. (A washing line behind the kitchen outside would have been ideal). The bed was super comfy. I would therefore highly recommend this cottage

  • "Given the current Covid circumstances we were a little unsure of what to expect in terms of comfort versus cleanliness, but our expectations were totally unfounded in Little England annexe."

    Our hosts were there to welcome us and give us the rundown. Although they had had to remove some items (we assume decor related) to be able to keep areas free for deep clean, it was very comfortable and very spacious, something that we appreciated with our labrador! Would most certainly stay here again when visiting this lovely area.

    Hosts were very welcoming. Main drawback was the low ceiling in the shower. Good location for getting about the Dorset coast & in these Covid times close to quieter country pubs for eating out.

This cottage is situated in the traditional village of Milborne St Andrew, Dorset, resting within striking distance of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

A charming cottage with an excellent garden, perfect for couples seeking to explore the delights of this location or simply looking to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Once in the property step into the open-plan living area, where you will find everything you could possibly need to enjoy a week-long break.

Look forward to rustling up a delicious meal in the kitchen before you unwind in the sitting area, tune into the TV or plan the days ahead.

Take advantage of the shared garden, complete with summerhouse and maybe enjoy a BBQ and drink whilst enjoying the summer sun.

Why not take a walk into the village and enjoy a meal in The Royal Oak serving food with an emphasis on local produce Positioned in central Dorset, you are ideally based to explore all across the local area.

Maybe take the chance to enjoy a bracing walk through the nearby Puddletown forest.

14 miles to the south is Lulworth, part of the world heritage Jurassic coastline, maybe hunt for fossils and explore the geological formations and learn more in the Visitor’s Centre.

Alternatively head to the county town of Dorchester to the west.

It was for many years the home and inspiration of the author Thomas Hardy, whose novel The Mayor of Casterbridge uses a fictionalised version of Dorchester as its setting.

Maybe take the short drive from Dorchester to Thomas Hardy’s cottage.

Little England is a perfect cottage for two in a quaint Dorset village setting with local amenities.
