  • "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.

  • "The owners were welcoming and informative of the area."

    It was a great location close to all the places we wanted to visit. The cottage had everything that was needed and was perfect for our young dog as well. A great staycation for the three of us to explore Dorset.

  • "Nice comfortable accommodation."

    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

  • "The photos of this gorgeous little holiday home do not do it justice - it is roomy and beautifully presented."

    Everything you need is there. And it is within easy walking distance of a pub that does excellent meals. Ideally situated to explore the lovely county of Dorset, we visited many different places during our stay. We hope to stay again soon!

  • "A cosy little cottage run by a very lovely and friendly couple."

    Just a perfect size for 2 people, in a quiet village with some nice local walks. Perfectly located for many of Dorset's attractions, including Monkey World, National Trust properties and local landmarks.

  • "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.

  • "It may look like a garage but on the inside it’s very nicely fitted out and equiped with everything you could need."

    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.

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.
