The cottage was lovely and unusual. We loved the lighthouse and went up there every night to see the sunset. The owners were very helpful and friendly.

From the friendliness of the hosts on arrival and throughout the holiday, nothing was too much trouble. The site of the property was excellent and so special; it been an old lighthouse with access. Our son particularly liked the heated pool and it also had a great private outdoor area with seating and BBQ. We wanted for nothing everything had been thought of.

A very comfortable cottage with friendly and helpful owners next door. Great views from the attached lighthouse and walks from the door. A good base to explore South Dorset. In a peaceful relaxing location with an excellent superstore within a few miles. Perfect for us.

A superb Cottage in a wonderfully peaceful location, it felt like a real home from home. We had many great walks directly from the doorstep. The history surrounding the property is so interesting and the views from the tower are incredible. The holiday was everything we hoped for and more! There's loads to do in this part of Dorset and we hope to return to the Lighthouse in the future.

Hosts helpful and friendly. Location at top of cliffs amazing, views in all directions plus the lighthouse to sit in; my granddaughter age 16 thought it was amazing to sit up there most of the time we were in! Swimming pool and jacuzzi warm, sheltered with plenty of seating. The whole ambiance of the two cottages was fantastic: peaceful, relaxing with good WiFi for the younger ones and a close drive to excellent supermarkets and local shops. A good variety of places to eat, great for walking and photography. Also not far from Weymouth etc for other pursuits. Excellent and would recommend it to everyone. We hope to return ourselves. We had both cottages as a family group of 6 but would be equally as good for a couple or four friends.

Smashing location! We hardly left the island all week as we found plenty to do there. A good supply of brochures were available had we wanted to venture further afield. There are local food shops which made things easier too. The owners are a lovely couple who are very welcoming, and having use of the old lighthouse tower was amazing!

The cottage is spacious and at the same time cosy. The room in the lighthouse is spectacular. The owners are very friendly and helpful.

Liked the peace and quiet, and the wonderful coastline. The Cottage was so wonderful, I would recommend to all ages.

The owners have put their heart into this lighthouse conversion - and it shows. The most welcoming property we have stayed at. We went seriously out of season when the other cottages weren't booked and so we had the lantern to ourselves. Maybe not glorious sunshine but it was so nice we didn't need to go out. Will be back soon.

The cottage was just perfect, particularly the sea views.

The property was too cold and the heat was only rationed by the owners. They had the heating on and off as it suited them. The owners had painted the property interior wood work with solvent based paint and had not ventilated the rooms. As a consequence we kept inhaling the chemicals to the point that one of us experienced burning sensation in the chest. We could not open the windows to ventilate as the gales were in the region of 80 miles per hour. The owners were aware of the weather warnings but were more interested in maintaining their booking. We had to leave earlier because of the cold, intrusive winds hammering against the windows all night long, extreme noise and the chemical inhalation. We feel very disappointed in the fact that the property owners showed such inflexibility and imposed such conditions to innocent holidays makers like us.

Very comfortable, fantastic position surrounded by cliffs and sea, yet only 10 minutes to the nearest shop. Owners very friendly and helpful, very welcoming when we arrived. Amazing lighthouse that the owners had totally rebuilt themselves.

A unique property, well placed for exploring Chesil beach and the Dorset coast. Enjoyed walking around the island.
