  • "Bransmead is a clean, well equipped house with an attentive owner ."

    The location is excellent for us and very peaceful. The only drawback is the sitting room where the position of the tv to the sofas makes it hard for more than 2 people to be comfortable. It hasn’t stopped me booking twice but I may hesitate over a third booking . It the only drawback in an otherwise great house that meets all our needs which is a shame .

    Hi Suzanne, thank you for your feedback. Best regards, Mike Property Owner

    It was comfortable and quite roomy. The garden was a lovely sunny space. The bedrooms and sitting rooms were good and again, quite spacious. The location was ideal for walking to Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door. The owner of the property was very helpful and friendly. We would be very happy to stay there again.

  • "Mike the owner sent us a text at 13."

    16pm to say Bransmead was ready for us and we could go in early. On arrival the house hadn't been correctly prepared - bed in ensuite bedroom not made properly, dirty worktops, dirty floors in kitchen/hall, dirty carpets, fridge/freezer unclean, dirty/broken recycling bin etc. etc. So, as we didn't want to complain to Mike as he had always been so nice and helpful, our holiday began by cleaning the place up. We have been to many Sykes places before and never had problems like this. In spite of these problems must say the house is in a superb location for everything and the off street parking is a plus. The beds were very comfortable, but the sofas and armchair are very tired and uncomfortable. Also the stairs are very steep/slippery and would not be suitable for the elderly or infirm.

    Thank you for your feedback. I've discussed it with my Housekeeper who would have been happy to return if informed at the time. I'm pleased you liked Bransmead's superb location. Mike Property Owner

    Couldn't get the water hot enough and so sometimes used ensuite shower, but there was 5 of us.This was reported a few times but nothing was done about it. Plumber was called to drains as toilets water levels were rising up when flushed but didn't deal with shower. Otherwise nice accommodation.

    However 3 toilets is a blessing. Drive does take 2 cars, just. Good fairly quiet location, nice decking for sitting or eating outside. Contained garden if taking young children or dog. Easy walk 15 mins to Lulworth Cove, though some pavements lacking in village (use footpath just up Binden Road). Accommodation is good 4* (not 5*) as reflected in price. Good communication from Sykes and excellent from owner, thanks.

The owner, Mike, was super helpful throughout and great communication - even went to check on our supermarket delivery when we were delayed with traffic on the way down. Castle Inn in the village is very good - download the app before you arrive to make ordering easier - and takeout pizzas good too. Very hot week - a more extensive sunshade and loungers might just complete what was a really pleasant stay in a beautiful part of Dorset.

    On arrival we found a thoughtful welcome card and goodies for us and our dog which were much appreciated. The cottage has three good sized bedrooms and the double bedded room has its own en-suite with shower. There is a good sized bathroom with shower upstairs and a cloakroom with toilet downstairs. The utility room is ideal for storing your boots, shoes and coats and has a large fridge freezer and washing machine. The snug is good if you have children or teenagers who want to watch something different on TV. The living room is cosy and comfortable with a log fire and it was an added bonus coming home from long days out to watch Sky cinema. There is a good sized dining table looking out over the well enclosed garden. There is a lovely seating area in the garden which catches the afternoon sun, there was a patio heater which we didn’t need but ideal for cooler summer evenings. The kitchen has everything you could need away from home, plenty of crockery and cutlery including a good sized oven, hob, fridge and microwave, coffee maker, milk frother...the list goes on. Bransmead is located close (2 mins) to a pub called the Castle Inn which serves fab food and local ales/ciders. You can take an easy walk from the cottage to Lulworth Cove such a beautiful place to take in the sea air and scenery or to Durdledor. We found the cottage to be a good base to go and visit Corfu Castle, Swanage, Weymouth, Wareham, Wool, Studland Bay and Durdledoor. It is not far from the tank museum and monkey world too.

About the location


Wareham 9.1 miles; Weymouth 14.7 miles

West Lulworth boasts some of the most dramatic geological features on the Jurassic coastline and arguably the most photographed locations in the UK. Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door sit at the heart of this area and really are a must see. Lulworth Cove has many little café’s and beachside shacks serving local seafood, ice cream and other delights, as well as several restaurants and pubs from which to choose. There is an Lulworth estate information centre which offers an insight into how the cove and Durdle door were formed and Jurassic history of the region. If you tire of Cove and cliff top walks then Lulworth Castle is a short drive away and offers another glimpse at some more recent history, along with Tyneham Village, and Corfe Castle. This is a really special area and the village retains a lot of it’s thatched cottages and has a real air of a rural retreat.
