    A very nice cottage, very clean and welcome and cream tea on arrival was excellent. Dog walks across the road, if it's dry enough, it wasn't when we were there. However, the road is very busy and noisy and difficult to get onto whether by car or on foot. We found the cottage wasn't very private, needs a bigger fence around the back garden but the shared drive doesn't help.

    A n enjoyable comfortable break, would definitely go back for a short stay.

    Fantastic homely and friendly owners

    Croft Cottage is an excellent location for exploring Dorset by car. Lydlinch has few amenities but it isn't far to drive to local shops or pubs. Nancy is an excellent host and had even made scones for us.

    Very comfortable and relaxing with private garden

    One of the best of many cottages we have stayed in. Many places of interest within a short driving distance. Friendly, informative owners.

    Beautiful, spacious and comfortable. All the extras you could want, and the hosts were lovely. Excellent location for our dog with open countryside all round outside. Great for exploring surrounding area as long as you have a car.



    out of 10

    Lovely cottage with plenty of thoughtful touches. Ideally located close enough to explore both Somerset and Dorset. We wouldn't hesitate to book again if holidaying in the area in future.

    Welcoming, fully equipped cottage (even TVs in both main bedrooms). The garden is a particularly attractive feature with the terrace facing west providing a sunny area in the afternoon/evening to sit at the comfortable chairs and table with sunshade if you need it. Many birds are attracted to the generous feeders. The hosts, Nancy and John, are helpful and attentive without intruding. A charming base to explore the locality.

    Great cottage. Very comfortable and clean. Well equipped. Lovely hosts who were on hand for any help or information. Very good enclosed garden for the dog with gas bbq and garden furniture for us! The clotted cream tea was lovely to arrive to, thank you.

    Beautiful cottage and garden. Very well equipped. Owners very helpful and friendly. A car is essential as nearest shop about three miles away.

    Croft cottage is really well equipped can’t think of anything that wasn’t there. Hosts Nancy and John were brilliant so helpful. Would highly recommend for a home from home comfortable break.



    out of 10

    Nancy and John's cottage is really lovely. It's very well equipped with everything you'll need. The garden is totally enclosed and private but a magnet for birds. John's feeders attracted a pair of woodpeckers as well as plenty of other birds too. Nancy and John are very welcoming and helpful without being intrusive and the cream tea was a nice touch when we arrived. We found lots of good walks and nice pubs for food in the area (with John and Nancy's help). Croft Cottage certainly provided us with the perfect base for a great week of walking our dog and chilling out. Thank you Nancy and John.
