This is a delightful attached barn conversion, within the grounds of the owner’s home and set in the rural Dorset hamlet of Tincleton and can sleep four people in two bedrooms.

The Old School Cottage is a wonderful, attached barn conversion, within the grounds of the owner’s home and set in the rural Dorset hamlet of Tincleton and can sleep four people. The cottage has two eaves bedrooms, a double with an en-suite basin and WC and a twin bedroom, a ground floor bathroom, a fitted kitchen, a sitting room with dining area, a woodburner and stairs to the bedrooms. Outside there is off road parking for one car, lockable bike storage and a shared lawned garden and patio with furniture.

The Old School Cottage is a lovely base for your holiday in Dorset.


Mr Carter, Hucknall, July 2018 ?BEWARE!- Multiple businesses on site, not only a "small" gallery. Concerts, Yoga, Life drawings and art exhibitions. Open to the public and strangers hanging around near the windows of the cottage, making your dogs bark, to which the owner complains! On arrival, you will be issued with a plant pot and stick to dispose of your dog waste in the neighboring Cornfield! Blinds down all week for privacy as shower room is downstairs also. The outside bin was small, full and had maggots. Door does not lock from the inside only outside. Definitely would not recommend to anyone, especially if you have children or dogs.

Absolutely Terrible Standard!
We stayed at the Old School Cottages and from the outside the building was lovely. Inside the standard of equipment was terrible. On arrival we decided to make ourselves a drink but all the mugs had brown stains on them. The microwave door smelled awful and after opening it the interior of it was rusty and deteriorated. The non stick pan was really scratched and in a very bad condition. The hob and oven was also in need of a good clean. The dining chairs were very old and not the ones shown in the images on the website. The log burner was in need of a good clean along with all the windows. On booking this cottage it said it was suitable for more than one couple. To enter the bedroom upstairs you had to pass through an open area with a double bed to get to the bedroom with two singles. This was not ideal in terms of privacy for both couples. The bathroom didn't have it's own light switch. The light switch which controlled the bathroom also controlled the bedroom lights. Not ideal if someone wanted the toilet in the middle of the night. In terms of storage there was one set of drawers for four people. There was no wardrobes or any rails to hang clothes. Eventually after four days after asking for a replacement microwave and some new clean mugs they turned up. We had to buy new mugs and a frying pan as we needed them for the first 4 days. We did not enjoy the stay as the standard of the equipment inside the cottage was very poor. It spoiled our holiday and we will never book these cottages again. Please be warned!

Mr Bardsley

We were made to feel very welcome by the owner. The cottage was perfectly located to explore the Jurassic coast. This was the perfect, cosy cottage stay that we wanted. Thank you.
Mrs Burrows

Very relaxing and loved the wood burner! We had a fabulous time walking and visiting the coast.
