  • “Het is een mooie plek voor iedereen ...”

    Het is een mooie plek voor iedereen die van rust houd. David en Jean zijn erg gastvrij. De accomodatie is ruim genoeg voor twee personen en buiten heb je in de tuin veel privacy. De locatie ligt midden in een geweldig wandelgebied en ook de weg naar de kust is prachtig. Iets langer dan een kwartiertje rijden door een prachtige omgeving en je bent in Bridport, een vriedelijk badplaatsje. De rest van de kust leent zich voor wandelingen met prachtige vergezichten.

    Het is een mooie plek voor iedereen die van rust houd. David en Jean zijn erg gastvrij. De accomodatie is ruim genoeg voor twee personen en buiten heb je in de tuin veel privacy. De locatie ligt midden in een geweldig wandelgebied en ook de weg naar de kust is prachtig. Iets langer dan een kwartiertje rijden door een prachtige omgeving en je bent in Bridport, een vriedelijk badplaatsje. De rest van de kust leent zich voor wandelingen met prachtige vergezichten. Kortom, genieten van een heerlijke relaxte vakantie. We liked our holiday. Jean and David, the owners of 'The little school' are very kindly. The accomodation is big enough for two persons and in the garden you have much privacy. The location is perfect when you like rest and if you like to walk. When you leave the little school, you can immediately start walking several public footpaths in the hills of Dorset. When you drive ca. 18 minutes you arrive in Bridport, where you can go to the beach. The way to Bridport is beautiful. We walked over the cliffs of the Jurasic coast on several places. The views are astonishing everywhere you go. So we had a very pleasant holiday. Thank you so much.
