It was perfect. The owners have clearly thought of everything. Lovely and warm. (we went in November) The log burner was easy to use. Well equipped kitchen although we ate out most nights in Wareham. Would highly recommend.

Excellent location, well provisioned, easily accessible to local area.

Reviewed by Diane 1st September 2017

The cottage is extremely well equipped, well maintained and very comfortable. But it is rather small - two people and two small dogs filled all the space. We wouldn't have wanted to share the cottage with two other adults - children would have been fine, I imagine.
