“Great little cottage in a fantastic location. I was also able to charge my electric car which is a big bonus. There are two very low doorways which might benefit from hazard tape to remind you to duck but otherwise excellent for an outdoors holiday with dogs”

“I had a wonderful stay at Mulberry Cottage, being short in stature, the low thresholds were fine for me, the little cottage is very cosy and the garden a treat, the dogs settled in well and there are loads of lovely walks from the doorstep. The amenities close by are commensurate with a rural setting and it's a peaceful place to stay. I would be very happy to stay again and indeed may do so.”

“A charming little cottage for two in a small quiet hamlet location. Ideal for walkers and nature lovers with peace and beautiful views. Excellent bus service for those without a car but village shop, one mile away, has closed down leaving just a delicatessen in the pub, so maybe arange a supermarket delivery before you go.”

“A lovely cottage and a nice little garden for my day. I thought asking to pay for electricity 2 days before you arrive was a bit cheeky as Ive never been asked this before. Also for the short time of my stay was expensive.”

“The cottage itself is gorgeous, with the most incredible fireplace that makes the whole house cozy once you get it the fire going. Kitchen was so well equipped, definitely beat my expectations. And the location is incredible, in less than 10 minutes walk from the door you can be overlooking some particularly interesting bits of the Dorset coast. Also a lovely walk back from the two nearest pubs, although I would recommend a torch after dark. We had an amazing time and are already hoping to visit again once summer comes around.”

“Loved our time here and fortunate to have great weather. On a good bus route if needed and walking distance to some lovely places.Cottage would benefit from new bedside lights and an iron as we didnt feel entirely confident with those but overall it was very good”
