  • “We enjoyed our holiday and the location of this property, Fi the owner was very welcoming, we enjoyed watching the donkeys in the fields adjoining the property and would have to say that the bed was the most comfortable we have slept in a holiday rental.”

    ...

    We did however have one negative with reference to taking our dog which was partly our fault for not reading the full terms and conditions, reading clause 7a after receiving the full information when we had paid in full we realised that we were not allowed to leave our dog in the property alone at any time, after realising this we decided against taking our dog as it would have been to restrictive as we like to eat out and this would have prevented this, I feel that this particular restriction should be highlighted on the page that states pets welcome for example with a note “see clause 7a” This would put me off using Sykes Cottages again unfortunately.

About the location

OKEFORD FITZPAINE

Sturminster Newton 4 miles.

Surrounded by a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the village of Okeford Fitzpaine boasts a local shop and pub, with further shopping facilities at nearby Sturminster Newton. The small market town of Sturminster Newton is set on the banks of the River Stour, reached via a graceful, six arch 15th century bridge, carrying a warning of deportation for those who damage it! The whole area acted as inspiration for the works of Thomas Hardy, who wrote Return of The Native whilst living in the town. The region is dotted with thatched cottages, rural walks, stunning country views, and fascinating towns, such as Sherborne, with its abbey and castle, whilst the beautiful Dorset Heritage coastline is also within easy reach, making this an ideal base all year round!

Note: This property does not accept children under the age of 8.
