Located within the rolling picturesque Dorset countryside, this is the perfect spot for guests looking for a relaxing break in peaceful surroundings, with an array of walks from the properties that lead over the picture postcard landscape.

A lovely calm cottage with privacy, where we had a very warm welcome. This is a nice place to start journeys in South West England or just to walk in a beautiful surrounding. For us it was the perfect combination of relaxing and exploring a great area. Combined with impressive fogey calls during night time.

We stayed in Willow cottage and were blessed with wonderful weather for November. The cottage has a wonderful large bedroom with a south facing balcony which must be fantastic in the Summer.

A car definitely needed as very rural location, no village shop or pub within walking distance, but lovely and quiet and although the owners were only next door they left us alone to enjoy our holiday but were very approachable if needed!

If you like the quiet traditional English countryside then this is for you. Located in a tiny village with a main trunk road nearby (but out of earshot) you have all the peace and quiet you could wish for but good links for days out. Outside space is great and there was even a secure shed for bicycles. Much to visit locally - historic villages, natRead moreionally recognised cycleways and walkways and the Jurassic coast.

In a quiet,pleasant village without its own pub. The cottage is well situated for visiting the Jurassic Coast, walking and visiting many pubs with good food. We found the property offered an adequate kitchen, a bijou shower room, and very spacious bedroom and sitting room with an excellent outlook over a large garden and farmland.
