Wonderful cottage and in lovely village

  • 5 of 5

What can I say! Victoria's cottage is just lovely and ideal. It is very roomy and comfortable and has everything you could possibly need. The kitchen is so well equipped. We went there for Christmas and we all had a fantastic time. The local pub is great. You are not far from Lyme Regis which is just lovely and also a host of other great places. A bottle of wine was left waiting for us which was so nice and there is a great wood burner. All in all this is a gem of a place and we will definitely return. Thanks Victoria for a great stay!! Irene and family

Quiet and homely

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was just what we had hoped for: very good facilities, good sized rooms throughout and close to the coast and within beautiful countryside. The village people were friendly: the local shop (run by volunteers) in particular.

The parking was opposite the cottage so that was convenient. The cottage had toys and games for our grandchildren (aged 4 and 7) and the 2 bathrooms (one ensuite) was very welcome in addition to the downstairs toilet. The back yard allowed for drying facilities.

There was plenty of useful information and a welcome bottle of wine!

Very comfortable for two adults plus two children or three adults

  • 3 of 5

As the weather was very hot for several days we would love to have had a parasol on the terrace but there wasn't one sadly.The kitchen was good but turning burgers over and bacon a pair of tongs would have helped but it didn't have them,these are minor complaints as overall we were happy.

Very Comfortable Dream Cottage

  • 4 of 5

We arrived to find a thoughtfully modernised cottage with spacious rooms halls and an easy staircase. There is loads of equipment, ample parking and an attractive sunny rear garden with ample room for relaxing, eating and clothes drying. Reluctantly I have to advise that we found the dishwasher was very noisy when in use and sounded as though the pump was about to blow up. Also the shower temperature and flow rate was affected by any other use of water by machines, loos, people in the house. An electric shower may be ideal but we got round the problems by closing the kitchen door when dishwashing and letting others know when showering (until they forgot-oops sorry!) Otherwise 5 stars. We really did have a great week in this lovely friendly accessible village. Thank you!

About Victoria Turner

We are a married couple living in Surrey with two young children.

Victoria Turner purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Victoria Turner chose Broadwindsor

We loved the pretty village, it has a rural feel, but with lots of places to visit nearby. The cottage is within walking distance to the local public house. We liked the idea of being close to things, but not having to put up with the noise and traffic.

What makes this cottage unique

The village has a great community feel, we are always getting vegetables offered from the local allotments. Our children love the beaches, there are plenty to chose from, even in peak season they don't get packed and easy to park.

We love going for walks, both in the countryside and along the coastal path. Our walks normally involve a pub lunch!

Dorset is a food lovers area. Lots of great public houses and restaurants, we find the food to be of a high standard and generally fresh produce. You cannot beat fresh seafood, with a sea view!
