Holiday was perfect
Orchard cottage met our expectations. Friendly owners, everything you need in a holiday home was present. The house is nice and spacious to stay with 4 people.
Broadwindsor is a beautiful and quiet village with a small shop for the necessary groceries and a cozy cafe where you can also eat well. From here you are fairly easy at the various attractions in the neighborhood, near the sea and larger supermarkets.
And the weather was more than good!
Full of character , above average amenities . Peaceful setting.
Wonderful property, lots of lovely walks on the doorstep. Child and dog friendly with own enclosed garden. Owners very friendly and above all clean and well stocked. Lots of added extras. Would recommend.
Brilliant cottage in stunning area of Dorset.
Orchard Cottage is a lovely comfortable and very well equipped cottage in a lovely village in a most attractive part of Dorset.
The cottage is spacious and decorated and furnished in an attractive rustic manner suiting its period. Most importantly to us are the king size beds with superbly comfortable mattresses. The view from the main bedroom is wonderful, and a delight to sit in bed in the morning with a cup of tea looking out onto the village, and watching an array of birds including a pair of woodpeckers. All the equipment is high quality including very up to date Bosch dishwasher and washing machine. Flat screen TV,s in the bedrooms and sitting room.
We have a small dog who was made very welcome, and the nearby town of Beaminster is very dog friendly with two pubs and two Cafes welcoming them.
Only a short drive to the beach, our favourite is Burton Bradstock as there is a huge part of the shingle beach that is dog friendly all year.
John and Elaine are extremely friendly and helpful and readily available if needed.
We have stayed three times before in their property in Beaminster, Albert Cottage, and this is also of a very high standard, and thoroughly recommended.
Always go to Lyme Regis when in Dorset, and recommend the Royal Lion hotel for a drink and lunch.
We are very pleased to recommend Orchard Cottage, and Albert cottage.
Peter, Rhona, Catherine and our little dog Rufus who loves the garden.
A very comfortable cottage furnished to a high standard and very nice and friendly owners.
Following a traumatic few months, my wife and I wanted to get away on our own for a completely restful week. At Orchard Cottage, we were able to do just that. Thoroughly recommended.
We spent a wonderfully relaxing 3 weeks in Orchard Cottage, surrounded by beautiful scenery. We had a lovely warm welcome and John was extremely helpful and very friendly throughout our stay. The cottage is absolutely stunning, it has a very rustic warm feel to it. It is very spacious and has a lovely garden. We are very much looking forward to staying here again soon!!
MEMORIES ARE MADE OF THIS!
As soon as I step into the cottage I smile, it truly is a home from home, stone and wood floors, traditional furniture perfectly mixed with comfortable beds, powerful showers and Sky TV. The welcoming pack of tea, coffee, milk, biscuits are a lovely and pleasant surprise. Although we stayed for a couple of days last summer it is still fun to explore and each room has its own special feel, mixing the traditional with modern comfort. Outside my 10 yr old daughter makes quick and renewed friendship with the three goats at the bottom of the private garden.
The cottage is picture perfect, as is the village of Broadwindsor. A pub, a community general store, a craft centre and café all a short walk from the cottage. Lewesdon Hill, the highest in Dorset is opposite the entrance to the cottage and is well worth an afternoon stroll to discover a magical wood and breathtaking views across Dorset.
David and Elaine the owners manage to strike the right balance of being there when you need them, but leaving you to your own space and time.
West Bay is about 20 minutes drive away, a pebbly beach and golden cliff familiar to anyone who watched Broadchurch. Crabbing around the harbour is a great way to spend a late afternoon, early evening. Lyme Regis is within easy reach. A traditional English seaside resort pretty shops, cafes and a local brewery lead down to a lovely bay, safe to paddle and swim.
David, Elaine, Ryan, Rosie and Barley the dog give you a big booming welcome when you arrive, it puts a smile on your face and it doesn't leave until its time to go home - still there is always next year...
