A perfect first adventure for us and our 6 month collie puppy. The owners were very welcoming and helpful . Views of the sunset were superb and the pub attached very welcoming. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property.

Could do with a set of coasters! My wife is a stickler for preserving nice furniture! Cannot fault the studio room at all. Perfect with own garden. Heidi is lovely! We would definitely return next year. Visited West Bay, Lyme Regis, Haines Motor Museum, Cheddar Gorge plus all the local villages including Beaminster. One word of warning, avoid SheptRead moreon Mallet if your other half is partial to a Mulberry!!! Our dog also had the best time helping us in our search for prehistoric fossils. Pub is ace! Hide

I was in Cheddington 3 years ago and stayed in the village and happily walked to the pub for Wifi occasionally - this time I was in the apartment next to the pub and loved the views! The most serene area and good memories from both visits.

Second year here. Nice, friendly staff/ management. Lovely food. Very dog friendly. Would definitely recommend.

Reviewed by Barbara 5th May 2018

Fantastic location. Great food wise that it's next to the inn which serves up excellent fare. Brilliant for the dog because it is completely enclosed outside and has a lovely woodland walk next to it. The cottage itself is small but has everything you need inside. We had a lovely week there and would definitely recommend.

In spite of all the minus points, it was a beautiful location and the staff were very friendly. We would probably go back again if the above points could be rectified.
