Jasmine Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Jasmine Cottage was a delight! We were 4 adults, 2 kids, 1 toddler and 2 black labs. Property was clean and well maintained. Location is perfect for exploring Dorset. The oven element went on the cooker. Chris and Marielle were right on it and had an electrician replace it straight away (on a Saturday). We would recommend this property.

Jasmine Cottage

  • 4 of 5

This cottage is ideal for a group of people as the layout of the bedrooms means you can stay together but have your own space. The cottage is well equipped with a large kitchen/dinning room, the table is big enough for a party of 8 to eat together and it has a secure garden for dogs. There are many walks straight from the cottage so there is no need to drive. You can also easily walk to The Smugglers Inn for food and drink and if you fancy tea and cakes there is a farm just across the road which is also a deli.The owners are very helpful and there is parking for at least three cars. I would definitely go back to Jasmine Cottage.
