Very well presented to a high standard little cottage in the grounds of the owners property. Very good kitchen with everything that you could need for your stay. Everywhere was clean and tidy and well presented. The owners are very nice and can't do enough to make your stay a pleasant one . This was an excellent base to explore the Jurassic coast, south Dorset ,Poole with many things to do all year round. It was always nice to get back to the log fire at the end of the day.

Orchard House Cottage is very comfortable and has a peaceful ambiance. The owner is very welcoming, friendly and helpful. We had a lovely, relaxing time here.
Ms Kerr

It was a lovely property in lovely surroundings, and it was lovely and peaceful.
Mrs Hext

The cottage was a very comfortable base for us to travel from. The bed/living room was spacious and very user friendly, and the kitchen had everything we needed. The setting was lovely and the location was excellent for travelling around southern Dorset. All in all, an excellent place to stay - we also had a very warm welcome from the owner when we arrived.
Mrs Hooper

A very nice and comfortable cottage. The setting is ideal for a peaceful, quiet holiday. The daily visit from the dog, ducks, rabbits and horse added to the delight. There was lots of walking in the area as well as being within easy reach of places of interest.
