We had a lovely stay at ''rest a while'' cottage, the property was very warm and cosy even on a chilly day. We did not use the bar and take away , so can not comment on that. We would stay again as the location is great for all of Dorset's attractions and Charmouth beach is a short walk away.

My husband and two energetic kids aged 7 and 10 really wanted a holiday home close to the beach, near to other attractions in the area and somewhere quiet to enjoy some quality family time. Our cottage was just that with all of us making use of the free covered outdoor heated swimming pool just yards away.

It is pleasant accommodation with the bonus of a fully adapted wet room for someone who is disabled. On the couple of occasions that we needed help, the staff were extremely prompt, helpful and friendly in their response.
