A fantastic cottage for a girly weekend away - well equipped and plenty of attention to detail. Warm and cosy with a bottle of fizz to greet us - a thoughtful touch thanks Jane. Really handy to be able to agree a shorter rental. Close to coast and Hardy country - Sherborne worth a visit - less impressed with Athelhampton House but expect the gardens worth a visit in Spring/Summer.
My sister and I hired Rose Cottage for a week as a present for our parents - we therefore had high hopes and we weren't disappointed! The cottage is beautiful, immaculate and very homely but with so many extras that make it a real treat to reside in - the kitchen, complete with AGA, provides a real hub and the sitting room has a gorgeous wood burner. I cannot emphasise enough how much charm and original character the property has, which the owners have tastefully preserved during their refurbishment. The grounds are beautiful and provided us with lots of stunning walks, whilst overall, the location was well-placed for trips further afield. The owners were very welcoming and dealt with several queries and requests before we'd even arrived. After one fabulous week we are already keen to return, so I would highly recommend Rose Cottage.
We stayed at Rose Cottage twice in the winter, each time inviting friends to stay. We found the setting idyllic and the cottage cosy, warm and very comfortable. The welcome from our hosts was warmly sincere and unobtrusive. The cottage was peaceful, well-furnished to a high standard and ideal for exploring the Dorset countryside. It suited our needs for country-style self-catering away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
