I loved this cottage. Its very cozy, warm when it needed to be and everything works. What a wonderful location. Wi-Fi not a necessity. Plenty of information about access, so we brought a small car.

Heath Cottage is a rare architectural gem adjacent to beautiful Dorset heathland. If you are seeking a tranquil, warm and comfortable hideaway (and can live without super fast wifi ) then Heath Cottage is for you. Easiest to park at the front of the cottage. Studland beaches are some of the best in UK.

Lovely cottage in an outstanding location so close to beaches and Heath yet remote enough to feel peaceful and notice the silence. Great kitchen for customers who actually cook while away. Thank goodness it takes a dog.

We loved this gem of a place - such a great location with walking from the door - the garden is peaceful, the fire was fabulous and we had a super relaxing time. Nearly put off by the parking reviews - no problem you can just park in front of the hedge in front of the House if you do not wish to use the driveway - so glad we went and hope to returnRead more soon. Thank you very much, Sam, Chris and BB X Hide

We loved the house with all its quirky period features and its relaxed and cosy atmosphere. Lots of nice touches including flowers and biscuits on arrival, beach equipment in the garage, and plenty of books, games and DVDs. A real home from home in a beautiful peaceful location. A few minor niggles: parking is a challenge unless your car is small; Read morestairs are steep; no shower (just a bath attachment and no curtain or grab handle) and the washbasin is microscopic. Didnt spoil our holiday though! Hide

Deers come every day to the garden which albeit lively definitely does not make it dog friendly but quite stressful. Position of cottage is amazing but cottage itself is dark and very basic. First time I have ever left anywhere early simply because my house is nicer

The cottage is in a lovely location, well placed for walks and exploring the area. It is comfortably furnished and the kitchen is well equipped. The garden is a pleasant place to sit and observe the deer when they call in for a graze on the lawn. The lack of WiFi and a shower are drawbacks.

Cottage provided the perfect break, the cottage is one of the best equipped I've stayed in with everything we needed and a beautiful garden to relax in after many long walks. The location makes it though with amazing views of the bay and walks on the heath from the back door. Buses are frequent and reliable meaning we did'nt have to drive anywhere Read moreduring the week! We also arrived to fresh flowers and cookies which was a lovely touch, we would definitely book again! Hide
