Cottage Review:  

We liked the location, the welcome pack and the toiletries.

The cottage smelt unclean as soon as we entered and it was very dirty on inspection. We had to wash all cutlery, crockery, glasses and cookware. The inside of the kitchen cupboards were disgusting with grease and dirt on the shelves. Top and bottom of microwave had a film of grease over it. The internal kitchen bin was filthy with bits of food and drink spills down the sides of it. The kettle had not been emptied and was dirty on the outside. The toaster was dirty and had not been cleaned. The skirting boards throughout were dusty. Underneath the lampstand which was corroded and dirty, and behind the sofa was dirty with many dead insects. Some of the bedroom drawers smelt stale and we couldn't use them for clothing. Carpets were grubby and need replacing. The windows and frames inside and out were disgusting and obviously had not been cleaned for some time. The two roller blinds in the kitchen and bathroom were dirty with mould and dead creatures stuck to them. The bedroom curtains were also grubby. The sofa looked worn and tired as others had commented previously in their reviews. I am glad that we took our own throws to sit on. The tall candle holder was full of cobwebs inside and there were used candles in all of the holders. We brought scented candles to try to improve the horrible aroma within. The small patio area was full of weeds and above the front door were overhanging bushes which made it difficult to stand to unlock/lock the door. There was a small bistro set in front of the cottage but unfortunately this was rusty and dirty so we did not use it. Overall, the cottage was dirty which is sad as with a deep clean and replacing worn items it would be beautiful. We could've spoken with the owners who live next door but in the light of them ignoring previous reviews it's clear they are not bothered. We left the cottage cleaner, tidier and smelling fresh on our departure

Cottage Review:  

Liked ˇ We liked the location as it is near my daughter and that is why we chose it. The bathroom is lovely and the bedroom is comfortable. We liked the wood burner and the welcome basket, thank you.

Disliked ˇ Unfortunately downstairs is just not clean. We know the cottage is an older building but we live in an older building too so know it could be better. The smell of damp was there all the time. The sofa and footstool need a good clean or just replacing, as does the little dining set, the cushions are stained on both. The light shades were dusty and dated and full of cobwebs , to be honest they really let it down. Then there were the stains and mould on the blinds, even in the bathroom. We went and bought some new bedding as the one on the bed was worn and the pillows were old and flat. Kitchen roasting tins were greasy and the cooker plate cracked and worn. We left a day early as we just couldn?t stay any longer as it just didn?t feel clean.

Cottage Review:  

Lovely cottage in great location for holidaying in Dorset. Luxury bathroom and inglenook fireplace with wood burner. Owners provide a very friendly welcome with a basket of locally produced goodies. The cottage is very well stocked and the owners have provided many extras. The local pub is less than 5 minutes walk and is dog friendly and very welcoming proving good selection of ales and great food at good prices.

Cottage Review:  

This is a small cottage but it is perfect for 2 people. Downstairs an adequate kitchen, dinning table, settee and TV etc. Also a very good log burner. Upstairs a good bedroom with lots of storage and a lovely bathroom.

As is often mentioned the welcome basket was very nice and meant that a late arrival would not have been too much of a problem as there was enough to make a meal.

The bathroom was also excellently suplied with shampoo etc.

The only negative thing was that we planned to go out for a meal at the King's Arms in the village only to find that it w

As soon as we arrived it felt as if we had come home. The welcome pack and doggy treats were a lovely touch. The owners were easily accessible but unobtrusive. Top marks for luxurious bathroom products and what a bathroom!!

Location is ideal for exploring the area, there are some lovely local walks, well signposted. Hop on the train to go farther afield and no parking issues.

Sherborne is quaint with some lovely shops and cafés. The castle grounds and cafe are well worth a look around on a nice day.

Would be nice for the front garden to have been enclosed

After reading all the glowing reviews for this quaint cottage I went ahead and booked but the biggest let down to what should have been a quiet relaxing stay was the very busy noisey road running past the cottage. As the weather was extremely warm and no fan was provided it was uncomfortable not to leave the windows open and I have to say in what is supposed to be a sleepy village the noise was very oppressive! forget a quiet sleep in! The only other bad comments I would make is thepoor quality bed linen (polyester) also didnt aid a good nights sleep and i
