  • "Warmwell Lodge was an ideal base from which to explore the area."

    The cottage is very well equipped, lovely and clean, and full of character. The area has a lot to offer - stunning coast and interesting history. We had a super time.

  • "We had a lovely stay here."

    The place was clean and we'll equipped. we had nice weather and the garden was a little sun trap also the garden was enclosed and we didn't have to worry about the dog. The two horses in the next field was always glad to see us. Thanks to the owners.

  • "This is a lovely period property with single glazed leaded windows, but thick blanket curtains."

    The log burner and central heating kept it warm enough throughout and warm in the main room. Having a toilet by the back door and bathroom by the front door provided luxury!

  • "A fantastic place to stay - we really enjoyed our time at the lodge."

    Facilities were great - the entire place was lovely and warm, and the log burner was a much enjoyed bonus. The cottage had everything our family and four legged friend needed for a wonderful stay. Location is ideal for great countryside wanders and stunning coastal walks.

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Warmwell Lodge."

    The accommodation was very comfortable and in such a peaceful setting. The location was great for visits to Lulworth Castle, Athelhampton House and Wolfeton House. There are plenty of lovely walks in the area; the coast path to Durdle Door being particularly spectacular. A circular route incorporating Hardy's Cottage was a good choice too. Thank you too for the bunch of delicious homegrown grapes!

  • "Lovely cottage tucked away- once I got used to our new friends (the spiders) it was an amazing holiday."

    We went with our young children who loved there cute room, the garden and seeing the horses every morning. We had a car so everything was only a short drive away. We can’t wait to go back again, maybe a winter break so we can make use of the gorgeous fire.

    The garden must be at its best at this time of year. The sun shone for us for the whole week.

  • "What can I say?"

    What a perfect cottage for a few days away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The lodge was clean, well appointed, warm and comfortable. The best compliment is to say that we booked to go back next year. The walks locally were fantastic for us and the dogs. The lodge is well situated for days out as well. We can't wait to go back.

  • "A pretty Lodge ,nice garden with lovely views over fields with sheep and cows horse riders ."

    Good off road parking . lovely walks . comfortable beds , lots of cleaning products supplied also welcome pack of tea and a pretty bunch of flowers . awful armchairs different to the ones in the add , backs tilted back so one can not sit up straight sofa just as uncomfortable , crippling to sit down , 2 of us ended up sitting on the floor and my husband sitting on a dinning chair ,it's not ideal for this was the reason we decided to cut short our stay and leave early . strong smell of damp , a dehumidifier has been left but does not help much , windows downstairs do not open window up stairs does not lock ,moldy walls around window . at night scurrying and pattering of something ,may be mice could be heard in the band bedrooms . it is a listed building and I am aware allowances must be made for it's age .

    Thank you for your comments. With regard to the armchairs we agree they are low and quite reclining so we will do our best to improve this. We often stay at the property and find the sofa comfortable so are surprised by your comment. A musty smell during Winter is inevitable if windows are not opened...the downstairs windows do, in fact, open so it is a shame you didn't contact us for help. Property Owner

  • "A characterful cottage in a picturesque setting with all the facilities we needed."

    A beautiful arrangements of fresh flowers from the garden welcomed us. It was great to be able to use the log burner on colder evenings. For us the best thing was the safe and enclosed garden which meant we could let our dog out without worrying. Also beautiful walks straight from the front door. We felt reassured by the procedures in place to guard against the spread of Covid-19.

    A good informative folder provided with plenty of walks, tea shops and pubs to visit. All information was dog friendly which helped with our planning of trips out. The lovely enclosed garden meant our dog had a safe holiday too. Walks round the estate added to enjoyment of our stay. Would highly recommend as a central base for exploring Dorset coastal areas.

    A stunning little cottage surrounded by horses and a beautiful church opposite. It was exactly what we had hoped for and more, super comfy bedrooms, cosy sitting room, gorgeous garden that was completely enclosed so safe for our french bulldog to scamper about in and play football with our daughter. Lovely personal touches with a welcome note, tea and biscuits. We will definitely be back, thank you!

  • "What an amazing lodge house!"

    We had a lovely stay with our four year old; having horses right outside and pheasants wandering the garden was amazing. The lodge itself is lovely and far roomier than we were expecting; a bathroom with a toilet and a separate downstairs toilet which makes life easier! Also didn’t realise there was a tumble dryer as well as a washing machine and hairdryers too! The welcome tray of Dorset tea and biscuits was very welcome and the information pack containing maps of walks around the estate was incredibly useful. Such a special holiday!

    Warmwell Lodge is a beautiful little property renovated to a really high standard. It's cosy and comfortable with all amenities thought off.

  • "Warmwell Lodge is a beautiful cottage finished to a very high standard, we found the little instruction notes scatterred around quite amusing, but actually very helpful!"

    One very minor point was the lack of cooking equipment, as people who enjoy to cook whilst on holiday, it was a struggle with the equipment supplied, although the housekeeper did bring us a stockpot when we mentioned the fact. It will not put us off returning though as we would just bring our own in future. (We normally bring knives & a multi-purpose pot anyway, but didn't this time as it was only a mini-break).
