Beautiful cottages with everything you need
Our third time here its great Chell & Rich are ace and have become real good friends our 2 dogs loved it with plenty of walks around the area and great location for a base to get to the coast.

What a little gem!
It's not always easy to find accommodation accepting 3 dogs but this cottage was just perfect - cosy, well-placed for touring and spotlessly clean. We enjoyed trips out to the coast and there were also some beautiful local woodland walks nearby. We were aware when we booked that the owners, Shell and Rich also had dogs but we never heard them bark other than when we walked past them on our way in/out of the property - not surprising really! It was actually ?doggie heaven? as far as our dogs were concerned - they were included in the lovely welcome pack we received as much as we were and had an enclosed private garden to play in as well as access to the owners' land. Highly recommended.

If you don't mind!!!
If you don't mind an extremely noisy road If you don't mind extremely yappy/barking dogs 24/7 If you don't mind been unable to utilise all facilities!!!

This little cottage was just perfect for us, with 4 dogs it's never easy to find anywhere. The cottage was clean and cosy with an enclosed garden, no having to stress at all about the dogs barking. The owners were so lovely and helpful and we will definitely be booking again. Knowing the area well as I used to live here there are also plenty of great dog walks (duncliffe woods 5 mins away and is perfect) Dorset truly is a beautiful place so I can not only recommend the accommodation but the area.

We had absolutely brilliant sunny week at Majestic cottage. The owners couldn't be more helpful and kind. We felt very welcome there. Everything was perfect, cottage was clean and very warm even we were there in the middle of the February. Lovely garden and fields full of horses and donkeys. The location of the cottage is perfect to visit Stonehenge, Old Wardor Castle, Westbury White Horse, Osmington White Horse, Durdle Door, Avebury, Ladram Bay and Charmouth Beach for fossil hunting, Kimmeridge Bay etc. We definitely would love to come again. Thank you! S&J
