Set in the tranquil Dorset countryside, this property is well equipped, furnished and decorated to a high standard throughout, providing comfortable holiday accommodation.

Situated on the edge of the famous village of Tolpuddle, this charming semi-detached cottage is full of character. With three en suites and a cosy open-fire with log burning stove for chillier evenings, or winter breaks, this home-from-home is able to sleep a total of six people over three double bedrooms. With patio doors opening onto the garden, visitors can enjoy al fresco dining, or just a cool glass of something refreshing on hot summer evenings, surrounded by the glorious local countryside.

This is a great base for exploring all Dorset has to offer.


The cottage was lovely, cosy and clean.The rear garden was small and secure for pets. It was in a historic village with with a nice pub within walking distance. There was easy access to the coast (approximately 25 minutes) and other places of interest were easily accessible.
Mrs Flanagan

We had a great time. Very nice house. Friendly owner. Secure garden for our Grandson and the dog with great rural views over the valley beyond. Plenty to do in the area. Would be happy to book this property again.
Mr Colbran

The cottage was beautiful, in a great location and so quiet. The owners were very welcoming and we have had a great week. Excellent all round.
Mrs Bladen

The location was perfect with spectacular views. The cottage had a lovely warm and cosy ambience. Access to the enclosed garden was nice and easy for the dog we took with us - through the kitchen meant we could easily wipe muddy paws and leave no paw-prints on the carpets! The beds were very comfortable, storage was plentiful and the rooms a very decent size. The fact that all 3 bedrooms had their own en suite bathrooms was brilliant. A downstairs loo as well - the ultimate luxury for three mature ladies!
Mrs Davidson

House was warm (in January), and comfortable. Well equipped to accommodate 6 people. Lots of info about the area. Owners next door if needed, and horse training to watch, to lighten a rainy day. Definitely one to recommend..
