A really delightful cottage set in the heart of rural Dorset. It is an ideal base to visit the many attractions Dorset has to offer. We were made very welcome and would certainly visit again in the future.

The property was clean, light and airy, well laid out, modern and very comfortable. The location is stunning and we enjoyed every moment of our week. Would recommend this holiday to all.
