    Although made to feel very much st home we only saw the hosts twice, when we collected and returned the keys. The cottage is ideally located for lots of Dorset and Somerset attractions. Crewkerne is nearby with all the amenities (Waitrose and Lidl) and the village shop in Mosterton was well stocked. The very quiet roads meant that driving at a sensible speed with due caution made it a pleasure. So all in all, everything anyone could need within a reasonable distance and a fabulous cottage. We definitely would consider going back. P.S. we were struck by what a dog-friendly area Dorset is. Albeit cottages that are 2-dog friendly were a bit thin on the ground. Thank you for trusting us with your cottage and our dogs. They loved it too.
