This accommodation is amazing - lovely and spacious with fabulous countryside around. So well situated close to picturesque Wareham, with many seaside and countryside walks nearby. Many thanks to the owners for our stay.

Provision for the dogs very safe and adequate around the property, with a 'dog walk' across the road. In the countryside, yet a few minutes drive to Wareham for shopping and interest visits. Many attractions in the area.

pros first. good location near wareham and easy to find. Clean and roomy. Cons: old lumpy mattresses, duvets too high a tog, boiling in the hot weather. Not enough crockery and cutlery, frying pans awful and worn. It was dark in the cottage and in the garden overshadowed by oak tree and high laurel hedge. outside table needs replacing. Dvd didnt woRead morerk. Garden esp the gravelled bit very overgrown. some noise from bypass near bye. Hide
