Almost perfect

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was beautiful. Very clean and well equipped. Disapointed with the hot tub as it broke down after just one day but did not spoil the holiday. Pub in the village of West Knighton brilliant and excellent meal.

The property is stunning and very clean! I spent a few days here and enjoyed every minute about it. The views are so beautiful and you can walk for hours! It a good place to go if you want to get away and be somewhere peaceful! Will definitely recommend it!

A rambler's delight. West Knighton is a wonderful base for ramblers and exploring Dorset and for outdoor activities including walking, horse riding, sailing and cycling. Ideal for families.
