We have been to many holiday cottages but none have matched this on furnishings and equipment. The whole holiday was fantastic. We love Dorset and you have such a central location here so it is great to explore the coast and other areas. We will definitely be visiting again and recommending you to our friends. Your cottage could not have been bettered!"
