Perfect holiday rental
We stayed in this "picture perfect" cottage in May 2021 and I am sorry that I have only just got around to writing a review. The cottage is exactly as described and photographed and immaculately presented. We were made most welcome by our host who lives less than fifty meters away. Parking is easy and right outside the cottage. There is no dedicated space but not once during our week did we have any problem parking. The cottage is within walking distance of all village amenities. Although only the two of us, we loved having two bathrooms, especially as my wife prefers a bath whilst I favour a shower. We were also able to use the single room as an overflow wardrobe and "baggage room". The kitchen is well equipped and very well thought out - as is the utility room. A big bonus was the private garden. Overlooked by no one and well maintained. Too often we have taken rentals based on the pictures of beautifully maintained gardens only to find that the reality is much different. All in all a great week. A very good location for exploring Dorset. A charming village (the New Inn is a delight) and a 5 star rental. I do feel that we shall return and have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending it.

The Perfect Holiday Cottage!
This is a wonderful holiday cottage! Looks beautiful from the outside and doesn't disappoint inside with everything you need provided. There was a welcome tray and a pint of milk to make a cuppa and have a biscuit when we arrived and some lovely flowers. Very comfortable and well equipped, there were three of us and we had plenty of room. There is also a lovely private garden with sun loungers provided and you can park easily right outside which in a village like Cerne is a massive bonus! The Owner is lovely and very helpful and provides lots of info on where to go, where to eat etc as well as all the usual instructions to make your stay enjoyable. The location is excellent being within easy reach of Dorchester, Sherborne and Weymouth. The Jurassic Coast is also close at hand. The village itself is your quintessential English Village with three pubs and an excellent tea room and there are plenty of walks to be had from the doorstep.. Highly recommended!

Perfect cottage in a beautiful village
Lovely thatched cottage with good high ceilings downstairs at least. Perfect for 2 looking for a quiet walking break, with a choice of 3 pubs and a tea shop within a couple of hundred yards. Sophie lives 2 doors away and was very helpful before and during our stay. Just what we wanted.
