My husband, daughter and our two furry babies spent two weeks in the lovely garden cottage. The welcome gift of a beautiful cream tea when we arrived was a perfect finish to our long day of travelling. We spent many days in the lovely garden sunning ourselves and found the piece and quite of the village location rejuvenating. It was also the perfect base and location for us to explore many beaches and towns along the coastline. The couple who own the cottage couldn’t have been more helpful. Thanks

This apartment is in an ideal location for exploring the Dorset coast. Bridport and West Bay are well within walking distance and there are excellent longer walks from the door. The apartment is well equipped and comfortable. A major drawback is the noise from the upstairs apartment. Every footstep can be heard and seems to reverberate around. There was also a dog upstairs when we were there and we could frequently hear its tail thumping on the floor.

We arrived to a bright ,light modern looking apartment. The owner welcomed us and the apartment was warm and cosy . We could see it was spotless ,The bedlinen was of good quality and clean the first impressions were great . A lovely cream tea with home made scones was very welcoming and a great start to our mini break . However we found the sounds from upstairs very off putting ,you could hear the upstairs guests using the bathroom and every one of their footsteps .We also found the bed too firm for us and we both found it difficult to get comfortable. The second night was a little better because their wasn't anyone in the upstairs apartment. The kitchen well equipped however i found the open shelve with the pots and pans and crockery on it, not to my taste, (a little worried how it would work in summer with flys on the glassware and crockery) useful additions would be a microwaveable jug and glass bowels/ Casserole dishes , I am sure the owners would have supplied us if we had asked but it's only when you are cooking you find out what's missing . This is not on the itinerary of the apartment but a hairdryer would be a useful extra and often supplied in cottages we have stayed in . I have had to mark down our stay because of the above issues with sound it is a shame because it was in a great location and owers gave us a very warm welcome.

Good location, lovely owners, fab Home Made scones, well equipped. Nature Reserve with super walks on the doorstep. Ground floor ideal as we have a dog & had safe use of the back garden. Only a couple of negatives - we could hear the people upstairs moving about, even for the middle of the night toilet breaks, & it would have been better if there had been a King Sized quilt, not a double, otherwise all good.

Lovely flat, we had the bottom flat, and the only problem was the noise from the people upstairs. Not that they were noisy, but you hear them walking everywhere, I layed in bed and could hear them getting out of bed walking to the bathroom and peeing then them going and walking back to bed! Every time !!!! We could hear there dog walking across the floor, everything.... plus the bed is only a double with a very hard mattress! !! There are also two very steep steps into the garden, so wouldn't go back again we left on the friday, as neither of us slept well at all.

This cottage provided a good base for seeing a lovely part od Dorset. The cottage is fairly isolated with lovely views and locally has excellent walks with the dogs. The owners live on site and were helpful but not intimidating. The garden is really safe for the dogs and very peaceful to sit in However my brother and I like to cook and we were a little disappointed in the provision of cooking utensils. There were no local maps available and usually there are books, games and dvd's available but there were none here
