    “The cottage is a good size which was the only positive.”

    The heating was not on when we arrived and it took 24 hours for the cottage to warm up. The instructions say the heating is on a timer appropriate for the season, I would not say that 2 hours in the morning and 2 hours in the evening are appropriate when the outside temperature is barely above freezing. The shower at the property is poor - tiny shower head with a bracket which doesn't allow you to point it in the right direction. It would probably cost all of £20 to buy a decent shower head. I ...

    The heating was not on when we arrived and it took 24 hours for the cottage to warm up. The instructions say the heating is on a timer appropriate for the season, I would not say that 2 hours in the morning and 2 hours in the evening are appropriate when the outside temperature is barely above freezing. The shower at the property is poor - tiny shower head with a bracket which doesn't allow you to point it in the right direction. It would probably cost all of £20 to buy a decent shower head. I am surprised that Sykes / Dream Cottages would market a property in this condition.

    Thank you for your comments. The heating is maintained on a default setting which can be varied by the visitor. The instructions provided by the boiler control indicate that visitors can obtain additional heating/hot water at any time by adjusting the controls. If this method is used then the cottage is fully heated within 1-2 hours. The shower head is of a standard fitting mounted on a wall bracket. This can be removed from the bracket to direct the water flow in the desired direction. We hope to welcome you back to Dorset in the future. - Sykes owner relations

The property

Steeped in village life, resting opposite the church and neighbouring a 16th century pub is this traditional mid-terrace thatched dwelling, Chestnut Cottage, situated at the heart of the village of Puncknowle.

This characterful accommodation is the perfect setting to come back to each evening and to enjoy all that the Dorset countryside has to offer.

Upon entering the property, you are welcomed into the large sitting room, where the inglenook fireplace takes centre stage before the plush sofas, creating the perfect setting to catch up on your favourite TV shows or read a great book.

Moving through the property will bring you to a brightly decorated kitchen/dining room, which boasts everything you could possibly need to cater for yourselves during a week-long break, plus a dining space where the patio doors can be opened up to filter in a cooling breeze during a summer’s evening.

Upstairs you will find a large double bedroom with views over the garden and surrounding countryside, a large twin with double aspect windows and finally a well-presented double to the front of the property.

If you can tear yourself away from this idyllic setting, spend special occasions within the local pub which comes with a superb menu catering to all tastes.

This delightfully rural village is situated only six miles from the seaside village of West Bay, famous for being the location in ITV’s Broadchurch series and promises to be a superb day out for the whole family.

The market town of Bridport is just seven miles away and you will find all your high street needs as well as lots of lovely local independent shops, cafés and bars.

Weymouth is nine miles away and you can find an award-winning golden sandy beach coupled with shallow waters perfect for a dip in the sea.

Chestnut Cottage is a wonderful choice for a family holiday in Dorset.

The market town of Bridport is only 5 miles away where you can find all the amenities you need including many independent cafes and restaurants.

If that wasn’t enough the village is chocolate box pretty and filled with local artists and craftsmen who have their own shops to explore. St Catherine’s Chapel sits above the village and can be see for miles along the coast line, enjoy the walk from the village to the Chapel and enjoy the reciprocal views.
