Lovely cosy cottage that has everything needed for an enjoyable stay. Very quiet and peaceful but only a 10 minute walk along the river into town. Great area to explore, Thomas Hardys homes, birthplace and Max Gate (which is walkable) and Clouds Hill are well worth a visit.

We found the cottage to be exceptionally well equipped & the location was ideal for visiting Dorset's attractions. We would make a return visit.

The cottage has everything you might need, everything is carefully prepared and thought-out. It's very clean and in a perfect location. Handy having private parking too! To be able to sit on the balcony and listen to the gurgling brook, while swans glide past is just wonderful. We spent 5 days there and now really miss it.

Good location for Devon and Dorset and entire Jurassic Coast. Cottage has everything you need even for a long stay. The welcome tea and biscuits was a lovely touch when we arrived after a long drive. We definitely recommend this place to anyone.

Riverside cottage is perfect for a couple who want a convenient base to explore Dorchester and the surrounding countryside. A 5-min walk from the town centre, very quiet and overlooking the River Frome from the kitchen balcony. The cottage is small but with excellent facilities and everything you could ever need for a self-catering holiday.
