Summer is coming but still snuggle up together on the leather sofa with some Prosecco in front of the log fire Dating from the 1700's, our newly restored "boutique" style stone cottage is in the rural historic Yetminster Conservation Area with a thatched CAMRA pub. The Bothy is in the beautiful garden of our quintessential English Heritage listed thatched cottage You have great access to our lovely Dorset countryside & the Jurassic Coast One fixed price: No minimum stays; No cleaning charges
Bothy Cottage is in a delightful rural location with horses in the adjacent fields, chickens across the road and a dairy farm just up the lane. I am so happy just pottering around our home here. We want you to be warm and cosy during the cooler months (& English summer), so the Bothy is heated with electric radiators (controlled by you) and a wood burning stove. We include electricity, kindling wood, fire lighters and logs for your stay. Help yourself to more logs from the store behind the Bothy, if needed. The kitchen facilities are suitable for modest cooking and include a single induction hob, microwave with grill & oven facilities, small fridge/freezer, electric kettle, toaster, filter coffee jug, etc., plus a washing/drying machine. There are two BBQ's suitable for loose charcoal or plonking a disposable BBQ on top. For walkers, Downs Lane opposite leads to various footpaths and access to the local Vecklands Millennium Wood (Visible from your cottage). The Macmillan Way footpath is 200 yards down Brister End. We can chat about various other places to go using your car. In my view, we are in a cyclist's paradise with loads of lanes and a variety of bridleways (Some very muddy) to suit casual through to the serious on and off road bikers (There is a huge specialist triathlon TriUK superstore in Yeovil). You may lock your bikes in one of our sheds. Once you are off in your car then the Jurassic Coast, the sea, Lulworth Cove, Durdle Door & Lyme Regis are some 40-50 minutes away and then there are the National Trust places, including Montecute House, Stourhead (Fabulous landscape gardens with the Spread Eagle pub for food).
Yetminster is a village with a load of listed buildings dating from the 17th Century, about twelve thatched cottages (The locals could not afford proper tiled roofs) and a Grade 1 listed church (St Andrews). The thatched White Hart pub (Run by Blanche & Alex) has a variety of locally sourced beers and ciders (Local labourers were paid with cider until the 1950's) plus good pub grub. I have cycled to over 100 local pubs so I can give you tips on them.
  • This cottage is an absolute treat! Russell and Liz were so helpful and friendly. The air bnb itself is stunning and so cosy - especially when the we had the fire burning in the evening. The location is great, we didn’t have a car but travelled there by train - there’s plenty of big walks or a local taxi service of needed. Perfect 10/10 stay !!

  • Thank you so much for our stay, shame we weren't staying for longer! It was most definitely cute and cosy and the cottage has a lovely charm about it. We felt very at home and relaxed and were made to feel very welcome upon arrival. Excellent value for the price, we would happily visit again in the future. Thank you again!!

    Lucy2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • What an absolutely stunning little bothy, we couldn’t have been happier with our stay. The decor is amazing and the real wood log burner makes you feel so cozy. We would highly recommend this place to all our friends and family and cannot wait to return in the summer when the garden is in full bloom. The outside BBQ area will also be amazing in better weather. Thank you!

    David2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place, lovely personal touches and a warm welcome. Highly recommended!

    James2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you Russell and Liz for a fantastic few nights. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for somewhere tranquil, stylish and fun to escape to. Will definitely return!

    Jack2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Bothy cottage was such a beautiful place to stay! We had a lovely stay in front of the log burner! Thank you Liz and Russell we will definitely be back!!

    Francesca2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Beautifully clean, extremely cosy, homely and in an ideal location for lovely local walks. Super easy off road parking and a gorgeous wood burning stove and super fast induction job in case you want to cook for yourselves! Russel and Liz even popped a bottle of prosecco and some milk in the fridge for us! Can’t rate it highly enough.

    Joely2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Cosy Cottage was super clean. Wonderful shower too. We drove to pub down the road where locals were all very friendly. My husband said the pint he had was excellent!

    Rural (but not remote!), edge of village hideaway for 2 only 2K from Yeovil, countryside setting with far reaching rural views. Beautifully furnished, White Company toiletries and welcome goodies, it's a charming little bolthole for a couple or those working in Yeovil. A fully equipped kitchen, living area, shower room and heated indoor pool. Enjoy the patio with the BBQ going, watch the goose potter around, enjoy the views or grab a blanket, snuggle up & enjoy a beautiful starry evening.
    Only 10 minutes from the A303 but utterly peaceful, The Little Stable is situated down a quiet country Lane on the edge of the village of picturesque East Coker, only a mile from Yeovil. There are 2 pubs in walking distance and plenty of excellent places to eat nearby and the beautiful Jurassic coast only half an hour away. Please note The Little Stable is not suitable for babies, toddlers or children. It is what it says on the tin so if you’re after something palatial, The Little Stable might not be what you’re looking for!
    East Coker is a quintessentially English village, TS Elliot even wrote a poem about it. Full of great walks and cycling, just potter about in the lanes and follow your nose back to the Stable after a drink or two in one of the local pubs or a fantastic cooked breakfast in our village cafe.
  • The stable is absolutely beautiful and really well equipped with everything you need! Fiona and Jason were lively and really welcoming and the pool was such a luxury! Really keen to return!

    Eloise2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Awsome hosts, Beautiful surroundings, great location and a lovely pool. We will definitely be back.

    Sam2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect little home in a stunning location. Certain to come back again!

    Matt2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • It's the perfect place to get away from it all! My daughter and I had a lovely rest in the relaxed and tranquil setting, just what we needed! Fiona and hubby greeted us at various times with a very warm welcome and couldn't be more helpful. During our stay we had the pool to ourselves as the other accommodation (cottage) was empty, that was lovely! Other than a very friendly dog who came and said 'hello' and a goose as a neighbour we had overall privacy, however in the stable manual it did give contact details for the owners if we should need them. Fiona kept in-touch with me from the initial booking with all relevant details for our stay and even left us some bird seed to feed the goose as my daughter is quite mad for them! There were many personal touches in our accommodation and pool house, a lot of thought has gone into making sure you have all you need. The facilities are fantastic I can see why Fiona is a super host much deserved, we will definitely be stay again!

    Mandy2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful little retreat in the countryside! Spend the day exploring the beaches and countryside then come back for a lovely relaxing swim and a cosy night in! Absolutely perfect!

    Kim2020-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • Great peaceful getaway in a lovely home from home.

    Nathan2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • The little stable was a perfect getaway spot in a beautiful rural setting. We enjoyed our stay very much and although we didn’t get to meet our host, had great communication and response before, during and after our stay. Thank you!

  • Lovely house in lovely village. Jackie was very helpful and accommodating and we had a very relaxing overnight stay - taking refuge from the one night of wet weather after 4 glorious days walking the Jurassic Coast path. Lovely friendly well behaved dogs added to the welcome! Great breakfast and lovely strong coffee

    Catharine2019-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • Jackie's house is beautiful and located in a wonderful little village close to Weymouth and the Jurassic coast! We had a great welcome and we look forward to plan an other road trip and stay once more in Jackie's place!

    Marco2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • Great rooms within easy reach of the coast path. Beautiful views and excellent facilities.

    Alex2019-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • The accommodation is lovely, immaculately clean, but everything feels easy going. The setting was ideal for us to visit lots of different places in the area. It could not have been more perfect.

    Claire2019-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely property with great views. Fab place to stay for 5 nights with our dog. Lots of lovely walks and cycles if you like hills! Jackie and her husband are great hosts. Would definitely recommend.

    Ruth2019-08-30T00:00:00Z
  • Abbotsburry is beautiful and very well located. The same goes for Jackie's house with the wonderful garden. Usually we book the whole accommodation through Airbnb, so we are self catering. I was skeptical how that would work out. It was great. Jackie spoiled us all around. She and her husband were very open and very helpful; We all felt very well. Highly Recommended.

    Gudrun2019-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • Highly recommended, fab host, amazing scenery, beautiful surroundings and very comfortable and lovely house! I will certainly be back!

    Middle Cottage has three bedrooms with a lounge on the ground floor with a breakfast bar. Shower room on the ground floor with another wc upstairs. Basic accommodation generally used for school groups for field trips. No school groups will be at New Barn during your stay. No Kitchen. Set in the middle of 20 acres of our wildflower meadows and woodland, on top of a hill overlooking stunning dorset landscape, yet only 5 mins to Dorchester.
    Extremely quite and mellow, with lots of footpaths for country walks, yet the busy seaside town of Weymouth is only 30 mins away or for more serious shopping Bournemouth is around an hour away and Southampton just beyond that.
  • Fantastic place! The animals are amazing - check out the iron age hut. So cool. Highly recommended and great value.

    Joanna2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Brilliant stay! Matt was a great host, very responsive and welcoming. Exactly as it was advertised and ideal for our stay.

    Matt2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Easy to talk to. Very welcomong. Does what it says on the tin!

    Taimoor2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • The accommodation and Matt are brilliant, I definitely recommend it for travellers looking for a spot off the road

    Arnaud2019-11-30T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect stopover if you are walking the Frome Valley Way. The Field Centre is a really interesting place - we took a peek around the Iron Age village in the morning before we left. The accommodation is advertised as without kitchen but it does have one with fridge, kettle, sink, toaster and microwave (no hob) - great for rustling up a quick brekky. The local pub is a gem.

    Jon2019-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing little place in a gorgeous location. Mathew was amazing at welcoming us and letting us visit the farm as well as feed the animals. This was perfect as a stop on the way back from Cornwall but we d definitely recommend over the summer for a longer stay. Great pub close by!

    Celine2019-11-01T00:00:00Z
  • A great place to stay for a large family and ideally located for exploring the Jurassic coast.

    Alan2019-10-29T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at Matthew's place whilst attending a wedding and it was perfect! The setting was beautiful, the accommodation itself was basic but exactly as described and extremely good value. We really enjoyed meeting the piglets, sheep, goats, and llamas. Matthew gave us a brilliant local recommendation for a pub. We had a great time.

  • Nice place to have a city break

    Vladimir2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • The Annexe is a lovely, quiet place to stay. It is comfortable and cosy despite the terrible weather when we were there. Sally was a thoughtful and warm host. Nothing was too much trouble and her communication was excellent. We even had delicious eggs from the her hens who provided us with much entertainment gambolling around. The pub did a great evening meal and is just a short walk away. Would like to return!

    Charlotte2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at Sally's was great. it is a great space and Sally was really really lovely and the communication was faultless. It had all the amenities you would need and location is central so able to get around and explore different areas. Thank you for a lovely stay.

    Steph2019-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic host, fab location and a gorgeous little annexe. Extremely comfortable with lots of thoughtful touches. We'd definitely stay again and will recommend for friends coming to stay in the area. Thank you.

    Jodie2019-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • Gorgeous annexe for a last minute weekend away. Ended up staying in both nights as the place was so cosy and chilled, travelled to Weymouth and Abbotsbury during the days (about 25-30mins away). Sally was a helpful host, easy check in and lovely property with a view of the back garden, loved seeing all their pet chickens romming too! Thanks :)

    Jo2019-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely place to stay if you're looking for a relaxing break in the countryside.

  • Thank you Susie and Hywel for a great stay! We had a lovely time in this beautiful part of the world. Communication was good throughout. We ate at The Kings Arms on the first night and had an excellent meal, also nice to sit by the fire place (5 min walk), we also enjoyed breakfast at the farm shop (very short walk) and Susie made us breakfast one morning which was fantastic. We did a good bit of walking along the coast path. Thanks again, would come back again for sure. Christina and Adam

    Portesham, England, United Kingdom

    Either a spacious double bed room or one with twin singles. Max 2 people in a very old farmhouse. Private bathroom, bath & hand shower. Barn for bikes etc. Free parking on the drive. Central in Abbotsbury, a small, pretty village near Jurassic Coastal Path, Chesil Beach, Ridgeway Walk. Simple breakfast: cereals, toast, a boiled egg and tea or coffee. The main road may be busy at night with local farm traffic. NB we charge by the room - see 'Lovely Old House' for 2 bedroom option max 4 people.
    You have a choice of a room with a double bed or a different room with 2 singles ( If you want two separate rooms for up to 4 people see /www.airbnb.co.uk/2404112/details) in our old farmhouse, which is in the centre of Abbotsbury Village, on the Jurassic Coast of Dorset and access to the Chesil Beach and the Ridgeway Walk just above the village. We provide bed and breakfast, we do not offer self-catering or cooking facilities but guests are welcome to boil a kettle for tea or coffee at any time in our cosy kitchen. There is no TV or kettle in the bedrooms. Parking is off the road on our driveway behind the house. This is an ideal place to get away from the hurly burly of city life. Great for walkers, cyclists, golfers or sailors or people who just want to relax and explore the beautiful country and seaside. Abbotsbury has many more hours of sunshine than the UK average because we have a micro-climate, thus there is the local award winning Abbotsbury Sub-Tropical Gardens. Nearby are Weymouth and Portland with the Sailing Academy in one direction or West Bay, venue for 'Broadchurch' and the nearby lovely golf course, and Lyme Regis in the other (see useful website gps-routes), or visitors to the many beautiful gardens in the area, including the Abbotsbury Sub-Tropical Gardens. There is also the Swannery here where the cygnets are due to hatch during early May. This is a charming and vibrant village to relax in, with quaint houses, country walks and is on the famous Jurassic Coast Path as well as the Ridgeway path. There are beautiful walks to St Catherine's Chapel, the Fleet and the coast. Our part of the Chesil beach is used extensively by fishermen, but is unsuitable for swimming, and from there you can walk along the shore for miles. On the way you might find a fossil! If you are interested in surfing or sailing the well known Sailing Academy is about a twenty minute drive away, and we can store your equipment in our barn overnight. Abbotsbury is unusual because although small, (only about a hundred cottages) it has a number of thriving businesses: a fabulous farm shop selling local meat, cheeses, butter & eggs, two shops; two pubs; teashops serving delicious Dorset cream teas or apple cake; an art gallery, Dansel, well known for a large range of local craftsmen's products in wood; a post office; and a bus, X53, service running between Exeter and Poole, via Lyme Regis, Bridport - a pleasant market town, West Bay and Weymouth, a 200 years old seaside resort. Suppers or lunches at the Ilchester Arms pub or the Swan Inn, both a few doors away, or a short drive to the Manor House at West Bexington, and village pubs at Punkenowle, Langton Herring or Burton Bradstock. The nearest towns are: Dorchester, Bridport, Weymouth, West Bay, each about eleven miles away. Slightly further along the coast are Charmouth and Lyme Regis, Durdle Door, Lulworth, Wool, Wareham. Further inland are well known places such as Cerne Abbas, Mapperton, Forde Abbey, Beaminster. Thomas Hardy has long association with this county, as he lived and wrote here, and set his novels and poems around rural life in the lovely farming countryside and small market towns. Sorry, we can't accommodate children under seven years old as there is a small stream in the garden and an ungated driveway, besides which our house is not well adapted for toddlers. Also sorry we don't accept pets. There is ample parking on our driveway behind the house.
    The highlights: The beauty of the countryside made world famous by Thomas Hardy; the dramatic coastal views and walks; the mild sub-tropical weather; the ancient sites in the landscape from bronze age, the Roman invasion right the way through to WW2; our lovely farm shop which supplies very locally sourced food; fresh fish caught locally off Portland Bill, and available in many nearby restaurants; a post office and village shop open every day including Sundays and Christmas Day; two pubs. A lively church, remainder from the old Abbey site, where many weddings take place, and one can hear the bell ringers practice at least once a week. A nearby popular wedding/party barn.
  • Barbara and her husband are a lovely couple with a gorgeous house. We had a short stay (one night) when we visited the Jurassic Coast for a fossil hunting trip. The house was lovely and our room/bath room were nice and clean. The breakfast in the morning was good and we had nice chats! Barbara gave us helpful tips were to go and what to see (the little chapel on the hill in Abbotsbury is worth a visit and you gave a great view). Thank you and I definitely recommend Barbara's Airbnb!

    Nora2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Splendid b&b with very hospitable couple!

    Floris2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Unfortunately, stormy weather prevented me from getting to Abbotsbury to actually stay with Barbara's place, so I can't review the actual place (though I feel pretty certain it is lovely). What I can do though, is review how lovely it was to deal with Barbara. She's very flexible, reasonable and kind!

    Suzy2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Barbara and Peter are excellent hosts and we look forward to a return visit sometime soon. Their house is charming and the location is perfect for visiting this lovely part of Dorset.

    Guy2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • Barbara's home is charming and so is she. We had a lovely room and the bathroom was sparking clean with thoughtful items for our use if we needed them. Breakfast suited us very well with home made jam and fresh fruit.

    Lyn2019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • Warm hospitality in a village with plenty to see (and the stunning coastal path).

    Cath2019-09-18T00:00:00Z
  • Very good location , wonderful and caring hosts. Will definitely come again if we are in the area.

    Adrian2019-09-17T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed a pleasant stay at Barbara's quaint and comfortable home. Barbara was kind and extremely knowledgeable about the local history. The location was perfect for beautiful walks and exploration of the countryside.

  • Jane was a thoughtful and kindhost and our stay was lovely and peaceful and we had all we needed, thank you.

    Kate2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Such a comfortable stay. Bed really comfy. Shower bigger than it looks. Four legged friends catered for beautifully. Excellent WiFi. Walks are spectacular and plenty available without taking the car. No light pollution so star gazing is incredible. Local shop with opening times until 9pm that stocks anything you might need in one direction of the village and petrol station with a spar in the opposite direction. I will definitely be returning 😄

    June2019-11-19T00:00:00Z
  • A great little find. We were looking for somewhere to stay whilst visiting my sister and her newborn. Janes communication from the beginning was great and the place was in a perfect location for us, nice and quiet but close to amenities, shop, pub, transport. Inside it was a perfect size for us, nice and clean and cosy and warm. Jane met us on arrival and was very helpful when we got a little bit lost on our way. She showed us round and gave us a couple of tips on where to eat and drink in the village. Easy check in and check out and we’ll certainly be back in the new year and will be recommending to other family and friends going to visit

    Jess2019-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • Staying at Pumpkin View with my dog was wonderful! Jane went above & beyond for us. She is a fantastic host! The place was very clean and incredibly comfortable. A brilliant place to have some peace & just relax. The local area is lovely and peaceful with easy access to so many other wonderful places. A great place to stay if you’re using public transport as well. I would highly recommend Jane & Pumpkin View as a wonderful place to stay.

    Jennifer2019-11-08T00:00:00Z
  • Jane is an amazing host, with a lovely guest flat that’s perfect for a getaway as a couple with (or without) dogs. The area is beautiful, very dog-friendly and, all-in-all, it’s a great place to recharge your batteries!

    Matthew2019-10-21T00:00:00Z
  • My second time staying at Pumpkin View this year, but with my Granddaughter this time. The perfect stay for us, easy for getting to the coast east, south and west, to explore. The loft is cosy and warm with everything we needed for our stay. Jane and Nicky are great host's warm and friendly. Great to see Robbie and the gang again. This is one of those places I shall keep coming back to.

    Carol2019-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • Just what we wanted for planning our walking holiday next year. Lovely and warm and clean. Jane and Nicky gave us a lot of helpful information and were so welcoming.

    Steven ‘Frits’2019-10-18T00:00:00Z
  • We loved the room at Wendy's place. It has big glass doors so you can watch the sunset and enjoy the weather, plus a beautiful patio space that you could relax on in good weather. There is still lots of privacy with the big light-blocking curtains and separate entrance. Coffee and tea-making, and a nice clean bathroom with hot shower. Luxurious carpet. Lots of space. Easy and ample parking. Highly recommend!

    Gina2019-10-14T00:00:00Z
  • As other guests have reported, Wendy’s place was excellent. Safe off road parking at the end of a very quiet cul-de-sac. The room had its own private entrance and a deck to sit out on when the weather is nice, which sadly it wasn’t whilst I was there. For anyone visiting the Dorchester area this is a nice place to stay and I’d happily stay there again when I’m next in the area.

    Geoff2019-10-13T00:00:00Z

    My house is in a quiet road in Maiden Newton which is a friendly village in the Frome valley. In the village there is a garage, Spar, village stores, fish and chip shop, newsagents, coffee shop, GP practice, railway station, small restuarant and a pub. The village links with many cycle and walking routes and is popular with people who enjoy getting out and about in the countryside. You can take the train to Dorchester or Weymouth or easily drive to West Bay and Bridport.
    My home is an end of terrace with views over hills at the back and a valley in the front. I have decorated my home in calming colours and comfortable furnishings. On the ground floor I have my art studio, kitchen/diner, lounge and conservatory. The gardens are mature and in the back garden has a summer house which is available to use in good weather. Upstairs there is a bathroom with a shower over the bath, an office, my room and the guest bedroom which is decorated and styled to be comfortable and stylish.
    The village is surrounded by farmland, it is central to many attractions including the beach at West Bay which was featured in the popular tv series Broadchurch. Bridport is a 15/20 minute drive and is the home of street markets and a thriving artists quarter. Dorchester is also a 15/20 minute drive and has museums and places of interest. Dorchester and Weymouth can be reached by train from Maiden Newton station which is 5 mins walk from my house
  • Amazing little place

    Snuggle up in a warm cabin on a winters day or stroll to the riverbank and toast marshmallows by a fire. With our selection of wellies, feel free to borrow them and head off over the fields or down the lanes, stopping at the local pub for a welcome fireside drink. A perfect get away for those looking for a break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
    The studio is newly fitted throughout. The bedroom has a very comfortable double bed, contemporary oak hanging rail, stool and chest of drawers. In the living room the sofa converts into a sofa bed, table, chairs, console table, Smart TV, WiFi and very efficient oil central heating. The kitchen is well equipped with an induction hob, cooker, microwave, fridge and dishwasher. The bathroom has a large 1700mm shower with rain head and detachable head, wash basin, loo and heated towel rail. Outside, the decking offers spectacular views. Deer, partridge, pheasant, swallows and house martins can all be seen. There are garden chairs, benches and a table. It is not overlooked and very private. Your own parking is immediately next to the studio with a utility room housing a washing machine and dryer.
    Cruxton is a small hamlet with a handful of dwellings. The river Frome meanders its way through the fields next to the Lodge. In the opposite direction, a mile down the lane is the village of Maiden Newton with a newsagent, fish and chip shop, garage, restaurant and a shop which supplies fabulous local produce. The main line station runs trains to Bath, Bristol and Weymouth. Pubs don't get better than the Fox and Hounds in Cattistock or the Saxon Arms in Stratton. There are many wonderful places to eat, not least The Riverside at West Bay, Summer Lodge Hotel, The Hive Beach Cafe, The Club House, Hix Oyster and Fish House and even an Indian takeaway van every other Thursday in Maiden Newton! The Jurassic coast line is a 20 minute drive. Only 8 miles away is the old town of Dorchester with a market, cinema, coffee shops, Waitrose and Lidl to name a few. Explore West Bay where Broadchurch was filmed and discover the places that inspired Thomas Hardy's classic novels.
  • I cant recommend this place enough. Andrea is so lovely and friendly. There is anything you could possibly want in the place and it is immaculately clean. We had the best sleep we have had in a long time and will gladly return. Even though we had a storm while there, we were happy to watch movies in the comfort of the place. We even got a cake on arrival. There were lots of well thought out amenities.

    Megan2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Andrea’s hospitality made you feel like you’re at home & her recommendations from where to eat to what to do around the area makes the trip so much easier. You cant ask for more from a west country escape!

    Martyn2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great 4 nights stay at the cosy and warm cottage. We have had some amazing stays and hosts in the past via Airbnb but this stay was made all the more special by how welcoming Andrea and her husband were and all the thoughtful touches. The cottage itself is well located not far from the Jurassic coast. The place is sparkling clean with a modern shower, kitchen and well appointed for both staying in, sleeping and cooking. The shower is nice, powerful and hot. Wifi is pretty fast and you can sign in to your own Netflix, prime accounts on the TV for those wet days if you stay in. The cottage is in the owner's property and they are at hand for any needs but there is absolute privacy as well. I would thoroughly recommend this stay. Our boy still talks about Nala :)

    Sub2020-02-21T00:00:00Z

  • Robbie's place is really great for both long and short stays. It's conveniently close to the train station while being situated in a very quiet and green village. It's not an easy walk to shops so would be handy to think ahead for groceries if you don't have transport, but there is a local pub with a fire and good food. Robbie himself is an easygoing, kind and really straightforward person to communicate with.

Julie was kind enough to suggest I use the large room for no extra cost as I was there for the week. The room was comfortable and spacious with a sofa and freeview tv as well as large wardrobe and bedside drawers with dimmable lamps. The double bed was comfortable and I slept really well from the first night which is unusual for me. Both the bathroom and kitchen are clean and easy to use. They have a lovely sized shower and well equipped kitchen with a separate fridge for guests. There’s free internet which worked really well the whole week. Julie and Mark have a real love and extensive knowledge of the area and have tonnes of information and maps galore. They provide breakfast free of charge which is a great addition. Although they have two lovely dogs, Julie and Mark are very thoughtful and considerate of guests who may be a little nervous of them. My nervous little dog didn’t see them at all the whole week and was as comfortable as she gets in a new place. Julie’s place is ideal for a peaceful getaway, with beautiful countryside and coast nearby. I recommend it as a great base from which to explore this beautiful part of the country.

  • Julie and Mark were fabulous hosts and made us feel very welcome! We stayed in a family room with the kids in winter and it was warm, clean and comfortable. They were very relaxed about our muddy shoes and thoughtfully helped us dry them after our long wet walks! We had a lovely stay.

    Tastefully decorated, the Old Barn is the perfect place to relax and explore the Jurassic Coast and surrounding areas. Nestled in a sleepy valley the cottage is 20min drive from Bridport and the beach. It is the ideal place for walks without the use of your car and reading by the wood burner. In summer the small farm is a beautiful place to picnic. The two bedrooms are en suite with baths. I am happy to receive grocery deliveries earlier on the day of your arrival and unpack and put away.
    The two single beds can zip together to make a comfortable kingsize bed, giving you two double rooms.
    There are views of open farmland and plenty of walks along lanes, woods and riverside from the front door. Next door is the Kingcombe Centre with a cafe in the summer months. Google for any interesting courses you might like to join. Restaurants and pubs in the area include Watch House Café in West Bay, Hive Beach Cafe at Burton Bradstock Beach, Ollerod in Beaminster, River Cottage Canteen in Axminster. I also love The Anchor in Seatown and locally, The Fox and Hounds at Cattistock.
  • Great place to stay! From start to finish Mandie is a gracious and thoughtful host. From a courtesy bottle of wine, to offering to book us in to the local pub for dinner. The accommodation is a cosy home from home with everything you will need to enjoy your stay, along with great tips on the local area. Thoroughly recommended!

    Angela2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • My husband, dog and I had an absolutely lovely stay! The barn was perfect for us and incredibly warm and cosy. The extra touches of wine, milk, and the log burner burning away for us when we arrived just made us feel all the more welcome and at home. Mandie’s invaluable advice on the best places to go was so helpful in utilising our short time away so much more effectively. It truly was ‘home-from-home’. Looking forward to our return visit.

    Lucy2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • A hidden gem of a place that was the perfect retreat for us and our dog. Wonderfully quaint in a beautiful location with some stunning local walks nearby. Perfect for getting away from the hustle and bustle although the more tourist areas (like the Jurassic Coast) are easily accessible about 45 mins away. The barn was exceptionally spacious and the log fire didn't disappoint. Mandie was extremely charming and was well organised having left a book and notes with lots of useful tips of places to go. The small added touches like the wine and hot water bottles made for a really welcoming stay. We would love to stay again! Thank you Monica and Clive x

    Monica2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Mandie’s cottage is remote and beautiful - the perfect place for a relaxing getaway amidst the rolling hills and valleys of Dorset. She went out of her way to make our stay comfortable and relaxing, giving us helpful local advice on walks and restaurants. The wood burning stove in the sitting room gave us a roaring fire that kept us warm all weekend - definitely a highlight! Would recommend and stay again.

    Alexandra2019-12-23T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay at Mandie’s place! The place was very peaceful and cosy and had everything we needed (plus super comfy beds which was a big plus!). Lots to do near by and interesting things to explore on the farm for our children. Loved it!

  • Mandie is a conscientious, friendly and helpful host who made us feel really at home. Although nothing was too much trouble during our short visit, she also gave us privacy to relax and enjoy her beautiful home. Just like the other reviews mention, the house is spectacular- a perfect countryside retreat with a trio of gorgeous ‘sturdy’ Westies. The kitchen is really well equipped and the beds are comfy with good quality sheets and bed linen. We loved our weekend- thank you Mandie!

    Emma2019-11-03T00:00:00Z

  • My wife and I stayed for a weekend getaway and this place was absolutely perfect for us. We were welcome with a cake by the host which was lovely and were able to enjoy it out on the deck. Although we stayed over a rainy, wintry weekend, the views and location were absolutely brilliant: Some lovely walks in the gorgeous countryside, good pubs within a short drive and the Jurassic Coast not far away at all. We cannot highly recommend the place enough and will look to book again over the summer.

    Tom2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Myself and my boyfriend stayed in Cruxton Lodge for the weekend. The place was lovely and Andrea was very welcoming. It had everything we needed for a great weekend. Thank you for the cake, it was delicious!

  • We had the most incredible time at Andrea’s studio. The apple cake on arrival was such a lovely touch and Andrea was so welcoming and lovely. We explored all around the local area which Andrea helped us with, giving us recommendations and ideas. She even came straight over when we couldn’t work the oven properly 😂 the studio was spotless and had absolutely everything you could possibly need, even shampoo and conditioner! we can’t wait to come back again, it was the most relaxing place we could’ve found.

    Abi2020-02-18T00:00:00Z

  • We have just spent four days at Oak Tree Cottage over the Christmas holiday and it was idyllic. The cottage has been renovated and decorated beautifully, the stylish and comfortable furnishings including super comfy beds with lovely bed linen. The cottage is perfectly equipped for a family break and the large kitchen diner great for entertaining. The lounge with it's log fire is somewhere cosy to relax in the evenings. Thank you so much for the very thoughtful touches of the Christmas tree and hamper - very kind. We had a wonderful stay - would highly recommend. The surrounding areas are so picturesque - would be good to come back and explore when the weather is kinder!

    Richard2020-01-02T00:00:00Z

    Salma2019-10-31T00:00:00Z
  • We had such a lovely time staying in this fabulous house. The location is perfect for exploring the Jurassic Coast and is just a short walk from the beach. The rooms are very spacious and there's a nice garden too. Our group was comprised of two families and so having an en suite bathroom for every bedroom was wonderfully convenient! Our host offered us lots of useful information about the area which was really helpful. It was very easy to feel at home in this house and we'd very much recommend it.

    Marc2019-10-23T00:00:00Z
  • This place was a brilliant find - even better than in the pictures. I was with my husband, our 2month old baby and my husbands mum and dad. We wanted a base for a few days to explore the Jurassic Coast, we had a car so were prepared to drive around the area. Jo's place was exactly what we were looking for. We spent a day in the village and on hive beach (hive beach cafe was lovely and is maybe a 20min walk - I would have been quite happy taking a book there each day and looking out at at sea!). The house is a short walk into the village and to the local pubs. The village and pubs are lovely. I would definitely reccomend.

    Lizzie2019-09-25T00:00:00Z
  • Another great stay at this lovely house in a fantastic location. The perfect place for our family, age 2 to 72! Lovely and clean, comfortable beds, great showers and well stocked kitchen. Hopefully we’ll be back!

    Abbeystone Cottage is a traditional 17th Century cottage situated in a picturesque Dorset village that lies on the magnificent Jurassic Coast, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. With original features such as a large fireplace and woodburner, wooden floors and beams it offers a tranquil escape to the country. Within easy walking distance of many amenities and attractions within the beautiful village it is also surrounded by stunning countryside and lies only a mile from Chesil Beach.
    Abbeystone Cottage is a cosy cottage with low ceilings and a traditional yet modern feel.

Outside is a small garden with both a grass and patio area with table and chairs for enjoying the sun! The kitchen is well equipped with microwave, washing machine and fridge freezer but there are plenty of lovely places to eat out locally.
    The village of Abbotsbury is very pretty made up entirely of traditional stone and some thatched cottages. There are a selection of tea rooms to choose from, two pubs, art galleries and a shop. There is also the amazing Abbotsbury Botanical Gardens that have a wonderful October event - The Enchanted Illuminations, and Swannery within easy walking distance as well as a children's farm.

  • Perfect place to visit the coast, gorgeous village and lovely walks 👍

    Helen2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • This is the perfect base to walk to the local beach or drive to Lyme Regis, West Bay or any of the other local sites you wish to visit. Great to get back and put the log burner on.

    David2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • My family and I had a fantastic stay at Abbeystone Cottage.A charming and cosy cottage with everything a family could possibly need for a great holiday.Everything was clean and in perfect working order with great little tips on the local amenities.A nice walk to the beach and a lovely rural village.We will definitely be visiting again.Highly recommendable

    Wayne2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Superb value for money cottage in the heart of Abbotsbury village right ont eh high street. Just 5 second walk to the farm shop, 20 seconds to the pub, 45 seconds to tea rooms and 60 seconds to the Spar shop. Add in the numerous dog walks, local rev field and kids play area, church, old chapel, wonderfully friendly locals, beautiful countryside and houses, this village has it all. Naomi’s cottage is cute and warm with log burner and central heating. Very clean, comfy and cosy, and has all the kitchen essentials covered. The dogs had plenty of space to relax after the long wet walks, and the spare dog blankets came in handy when we’d soaked through our own drying them both! Nice hot shower/ bath in the lovely bathroom at the back of the kitchen. Comfy firm mattresses and plenty of quality pillows. The TV, range of DVDs, board games and WiFi were useful for the wet weekend we had! Only odd thing was lack of blinds in the bathrooms, especially the upstairs toilet which has a low clear window right behind the toilet. Very revealing for night time trips to the loo! Fortunately the little garden is fully enclosed all round so hopefully no voyeurs caught a cheeky flash. Would throughly recommend Naomi’s cottage for couples or a small family!

    James2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • My girlfriend, nine-month-old son and I had a lovely three-night stay in Abbeystone Cottage. It’s a great space for a small family to use as a base when exploring the area and we really made the most of the living area, as the big sofas blocked some routes off for our crawling son!! Some of the floors upstairs are slightly sloped and the doorways are quite low, but you soon adapt. It’s nice and quirky rather than any inconvenience. It was very cold when we were there (early Feb) so we used the heating a lot and found that the downstairs bathroom remained cold. Again, not the end of the world and we still gelt comfortable bathing our son in there, it just means the floors are very cold and you’d be wise to have clothes ready on one of the radiators for when you come out. As others have mentioned, the shower lacks power but does the job, so isn’t an issue for a short stay. We loved our time in Abbotsbury, it’s very picturesque, and will look into a return visit in a few years time. Also: We cooked breakfasts and dinners in the cottage and made the most of the farm shop two doors down (great bacon, sausages and longhorn burgers!) and Spar round the corner for essentials. Both pubs in the village are nice, though we spent more time in the Ilchester Arms and would strongly recommend visitors do the 1.25 mile walk to Chesil Beach down the pathway alongside Spar. The scenery is spectacular in parts and it’s only a bit muddy (don’t bring the buggy!! We used a papoose).

    Samuel2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • A fabulous cottage in an equally fabulous location. Highly recommended.

    Julie2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • We love staying here. It's spacious, cosy, in a great location and there's a pub and farm shop within 30 seconds! The perfect place for a cosy winter break and exploring the coast!

    Daniel2019-12-10T00:00:00Z
  • A charming little cottage, clean, tidy and cosy, with everything you might need for a comfortable stay, checking in was a breeze. Well situated in picturesque Abbotsbury, a little farm shop right next door for stocking up on good quality local produce, and a nice pub across the road to relax in. Bring your walking boots as there are some stunning walks through the hills and along the beaches. If you have time, a short drive to Seatown to do a spot of fossil hunting on the beach there, followed by lunch in the Anchor Inn is highly recommended. It was our second visit here, so thanks Naomi for having us again, we’ll definitely return again soon. Lovely touch putting the Christmas tree up in the living room! Alex & Katy

  • We love AirBnB. the locations, the people running it, and the great value for money. But we are sad we have to leave our dog, Sam, behind. not any more. Mark and Julie are not only OK with you bringing your dog(s), they love it. They made us and Sam so welcome (even a little treat bowl in the bedroom, nice touch Mark) You get loads of space to relax, a well-stocked kitchen, and time for a natter. Mark and Julie, you are lovely hosts, we will be back!

  • I stayed at Julie and Mark's cottage the night before my short fossil hunting trip to Burton Bradstock's beach, and I couldn't have been treated better. Julie and Mark are wonderful hosts, they made me feel like at home, visiting some friends, although it was my first time to meet them. Place was sparkling clean, with much more than I needed for my short one night stay. It was nice to relax after my long drive there, having a glass of wine and a nice chat with this lovely couple, before to sleep. Room was great and comfy and the following morning the include breakfast was all I needed before to head to the beach. Thank you so much, surely I'll stay at yours whenever I decide to come again. And, btw I found some interesting fossils in the end :-) Paolo
