Snooks Cottage description

The cottage can sleep four people in two double bedrooms and a ground floor bathroom. There is a kitchen/breakfast room with a stable door leading into the garden, a dining room, a sitting room with an inglenook fireplace and a woodburning stove, and a second sitting room.

Snooks Cottage is a dream. It is tidy and cosy, quaint and modern. We cooked dinner for four almost every night and had plenty of equipment to do so - including an excellent dishwasher!

Snooks Cottage is the best cottage we have ever had in England. Wonderful setting in a valley opposite the Church (bell ringing practice on Wednesday evenings). Perfect, we will be back.

We had a fantastic week at Snooks Cottage! The Cottage itself was the perfect cosy retreat, set in the perfect location for exploring beautiful Dorset. There's lots of great walks nearby - perfect if you're taking your dog! We definitely hope to return!

The cottage was exceptionally nice and very comfortable with everything you could wish for at hand. Upwey is a great location too, it's so easy to get to and so many lovely places close by.

Snooks Cottage is lovely. It was fully kitted out and everything has been thought of. We enjoyed the use of WiFi, there was plenty of fridge space, a lovely garden, parking, comfortable furnishings and easy cleaning with its wooden floors. We found we had excellent communications with the owners. Overall we found the quiet location was fantastic and very dog friendly.

The cottage is set in the most gorgeous area. Plenty of walks for the dogs and the local people were all very friendly. There was plenty to do within a short drive from the cottage as well as the village having some of its own attractions. The cottage was beautiful and we were made to feel very welcome with a welcome basket. Every thought had been put into making it a home from home. The information folder was of great use.

Snooks Cottage is a hidden treasure. Beautifully situated in the quaint little village of Upwey and ideally situated for visiting all Weymouth and Dorset attractions. The cottage is warm and cosy and there is everything you need for tour stay, even WiFi for your teenagers! This was our second visit and we would definitely recommend it to our friends and family.

The cottage was cosy, warm and beautifully furnished - couldn't be better. There were friendly, chatty villagers who were happy for us to watch a bell ringing session. In a good location for exploring all over Dorset and very good catering at the local pub.

Our stay at Snooks Cottage was absolutely wonderful, I can't fault the place at all. Very cosy, Idyllic setting and in walking distance to a lovely pub and great walks nearby. We've stayed in numerous cottages around the country and this is certainly one of the best overall, we will be returning to Snooks at some point in the future.

We spent one week at Snooks Cottage with our large dog and to be honest we could not fault it. From the very helpful joining instructions and the welcome hamper (including dog treats) to all the little extras such as phone and extra logs should we have needed them (for additional small fee). The location was extremely peaceful being towards the end of a dead end Lane. Upwey has two excellent pubs just 15 to 20 minutes walk along lit streets. The Dorset Jurassic Coast is just a short drive away with some of the best coastal walking you can find. A highly recommended holiday rental.

The cottage was beautiful, everything you could really ask for, it was a home from home and the owners have thought of all your needs. We would definitely go back for another stay at Snooks Cottage in the future. There were excellent views and it was so peaceful, with very friendly neighbours and people in the village. Overall a stunning place and cottage, we would definitely recommend a stay in Snooks Cottage Upwey.
