  • "Great little cottage for the 2 of us in a superb location."

    The facilities were sufficient for our needs and everything was clean and in good condition. We managed to park the car close all the time but it may get difficult at busy times. We really enjoyed our stay here and I thought it was great value for this accommodation, we would consider booking again if we are coming to the area in future. Thank you

  • "Though compact, the cottage is well thought through, and in the centre of a pretty village."

    The fairly close pub is friendly, the food average with several good restaurents within a 10 minute drive. Lots of nice walks close by.

  • "We had a nice time, the property IS small!"

    We seemed to acclimatise and the size didn’t cause us undue problems. Our only issue was that with a small dog, last thing at night, the garden just wasn’t any good for its last visit before bed, so one of us had to remain ready to go out and we never brought a torch, the street was very dark,plus, just our luck, major waterworks we’re taking place and large pits were in the road which hadn’t been brought to our attention beforehand. So, a torch on-site would be useful. The bathroom was fine, I think it may have problems in the future because it doesn’t have an extractor, nor an opening window that’s easy to get to so steam is going to cause damp I suspect. The sink area could do with another mirror, same size as is there, just on the side wall as trying to square up to see myself for a shave or contact lenses was awkward due to shelving. The towels are of good quality, an additional hand towel in the kitchen would help as washing dishes occurs regularly and a tea towel is needed for the dishes not our hands. The beds were hard BUT, don’t worry too much, they grown on you as well and my Fitbit showed my sleep patterns to be better than my average at home, they are good. Location wise, the crown pub ( two doors up)is tidy, no noise, serves standard pub food but I have to say, my gammon chips egg and a side salad was very good and at a good price, plus the real ales are really nice and cheaper than average as well.

    Thank you for your helpful comments and we are glad to hear that your sleep patterns were better than your average at home! There is a torch available for guests (it is a lantern torch and can be seen in the photograph of the sitting room, on top of the fireplace) - maybe you didn't notice it or thought it was an ornament? We love the pub in the village too - friendly and great value. Property Owner

  • "The basin in the en-suite was a very small cloakroom size, difficult to even get two hands in it."

    For a cottage of this rating, in my opinion not acceptable. To obtain any fresh air downstairs (apart from having the front door open) it was necessary to stand on a chair to open the kitchen window. I am 5ft7ins so not exactly small. Cannot understand how the above have got past any inspection by your staff. Would make me hesitate about using Sykes again. Finally the grill pan had certainly not been cleaned, it contained congealed fat. A small pair of steps a necessity for safety. A more accurate photo of the en-suite would be more honest.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry you didn't enjoy you stay at Little Burwell, we do take pride in our little cottage, and were we aware of the issues you experienced we could have rectified them for you, unfortunately with regards to basin in the en-suite this is the standard size for that particular bathroom, and the kitchen window and back door do open fully for fresh air into the property. Regards Property Owner

Pronounced ‘Punnle’ this is a great location for exploring the Jurassic Coast and surrounding countryside. You can enjoy beach walks with spectacular views along the famous Chesil Beach, Hive Beach and Cogden Beach. 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.
