Review – “A great summer holiday”

September 3rd, 2018 | Posted in Reviews

Had a delightful week here – cottage is charming with lovely views towards the Ridgeway from the back and a pretty garden at the front. Great dog walks all around and very easy to get into Weymouth – 10 minutes on the bus from the end of the road. Many interesting and attractive places to explore along the coast – Ringstead Bay, Golden Cap, Lulworth Cove -and we enjoyed walks along Weymouth Bay and playing tennis at the Greenhill courts – £5.00 for an hour and a spectacular view! Boys (and the dog) had fun at the Weymouth summer carnival too. Cottage was extremely clean, well-equipped and very comfortable. A great summer holiday.

Holiday Cottage – Review – “The cottage was so clean and comfortable and well placed for exploring Dorset”

October 17th, 2016 | Posted in Reviews

Hi Sam,
Just to let you know that we had a great week in Dorset, staying in your cottage.
The cottage was so clean and  comfortable and well placed for exploring Dorset, and we appreciated the art work!
We had some great weather, sunny and dry and managed some really good walks both locally and along various parts of the Coast- so impressive.
It was our first visit to Dorset and we will certainly be returning
Thanks for providing such excellent accommodation.
Best wishes
