Had the most wonderful time at this beautiful cottage. Excellently equipped with everything we could have possibly needed, comfy beds, great bath and shower facilities and a lovely hamper to top it off. Communication was second to none and the owners were super friendly. Hope to return in the future.

Spacious, warm cottage with comfortable good quality tasteful furnishings. Generous welcome package made up of local food items. Easy for larger groups to enjoy personal space or congregate all together. Good for Weymouth and Portland as well as coastal walks along popular Jurassic Coast sites. Local fish and chips were good.
