The Perfect Break

  • 5 of 5

A delightful cottage in a delightful village. The ideal location ,quiet and peaceful yet a good centre for exploring the area; coast ,villages,towns and countryside. The cottage itself was very comfortable and well equipped and a few minutes' walk to an excellent dog friendly pub and farm shop. We would certainly be happy to stay again, which is surely the best recommendation.

Pretty little Tardis

  • 4 of 5

You think it is small, but it is not. Pleasant neighbours, lovely local pub, silence.

Comfy bed, well equipped. Free wifi, good TV. Everything as you would want it. The only down side is you have to park 50 metres or so away. But as the weather was amazing during our stay this was never an issue.

Quaint quiet cottage in pretty village

  • 4 of 5

This cottage is very centrally located to visiting the Dorset/ Devon coast. It's in a pretty quiet village with a farm shop & pleasant pub in walking distance. The cottage has spacious rooms with a lovely comfortable king size bed & twin beds. It is very well equipped for a stay in the countryside.

It has use of a shared garden too.

The only thing missing for me were logs for a fire or an electric fire to make the lounge more cosy, as it was quite chilly weather when we were there, even though it was June!

Owner's Response: We are delighted that you liked the cottage and enjoyed your stay in Dorset! The log basket is not left in the house as late as June, but is available in the shed. There are also some portable electric heaters available in the house for when a little extra heat is needed. We would encourage visitors to give us a call during their stay if there is anything they need as we can often help.

Light, airy, clean, spacious and cosy. Great location too.

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time - the area is full of local interest and the countryside and Jurassic Coast are beautiful. The owners laid on some nice touches with washing up liquid, cloth, sponge etc. which one never knows whether to bring, and all was well. We'd definitely go again. Thank you!

Welcoming, Homely cottage

  • 5 of 5

We was instantly at ease in this lovely very clean homely cottage. Our week was relaxing we had the old quaintness of the cottage with modern added bonuses like wifi. The village of Portesham is just as I remembered it as a young girl.

Hübsches Cottage

  • 4 of 5

Hübsches Cottage in einem netten Dorf in guter Lage in Dorset.

Die dörfliche Umgebung ist schön und ruhig, guter Pub in 3 Minuten zu Fuß erreichbar.

Die Schlafzimmer sind sehr gemütlich, das Wohnzimmer und das Esszimmer angenehm.

Die Küche ist funktional und gut ausgestattet, teilweise sollte die Küchenausstattung verbessert werden (nur kleine Töpfe vorhanden, Pfanne für Elektroherd ungeeignet, ...).
