If you want a cosy cottage with stunning views and a good pub within 100m, you cannot do better than this. Clean, tidy and as advertised.
We stayed at the Old Reading Room at the beginning of Dec & it's absolutely delightful! After a very cold walk on the beach we enjoyed a cosy night in front of the fire! The cottage has a very welcoming feel to it, has a lovely quirkiness & has everything you need! We'd definitely book again in warmer weather so we could enjoy the garden & amazing view!
The Old Reading Room Cottage is beautiful, comfy beds, pretty log fire, good wi-fi, amazing views from the secure dog safe garden. Everything has been provided for you to have a perfect stay. We stayed with our 2 dogs and especially enjoyed the walks from the cottage to the coastal path. Amazing countryside on your doorstep. Pub next-door was convenient & friendly. Cheryl was very kind & helpful. Will certainly be looking to stay again.
My wife, dog and I spent a couple of nights at the Reading Room this summer and had a fabulous time.
The house, garden and facilities were exactly what we needed and Cheryl couldn't help but be perfectly helpful.
Location is great for visits to the beach, tank museum, monkey world and the blue pool.
We definitely plan on returning in future!
This cottage is the perfect summer house - sitting in the garden having a glass of wine and watching the sun go down over the Purbeck Hills is magical. We spent most of the time we were 'at home' in the garden; having breakfast on the raised decking, listening to the cricket sitting in deckchairs, and enjoying a BBQ during the best Bank Holiday weekend for decades. We also had meals in the garden room, with the doors open to catch a breeze. Our daughter was married in the magnificent church in the village and the reception was held in the Kingston Courtyard just down the road. Everything was perfect, and the bride and groom stayed with us before and after the wedding. The cottage is also very well equipped with everything you could need - from a washing machine and tumble dryer to hoola hoops ( we had a family challenge to see who could hoola for longest!). Great place to stay. Fabulous walks from the door in any direction.
