I am writing this review following a third stay at Wren Cottage. Returning to this lovely cottage is very much like ‘coming home’. It is one of those places you rarely discover where everything is perfect. In every respect a stay at Wren Cottage is ideal. It is clean, very well appointed, nicely located both within the village and the... more

I feel somewhat overwhelmed reading this! Thank you! It sounds cheesy, but I can't be on holiday in beautiful Dorset then the next best thing is allowing other people to enjoy it as much as we do. When our daughter was small, we used to regularly stay in a lovely cottage near Penzance and so I really know what you... more

Wren Cottage is a large, modern two bed house situated in the quiet village of Tolpuddle. The cottage is immaculate with a home from home feel. It has everything needed for a family self-catering holiday. Al Fresco breakfasts were enjoyable in the sun trapped back garden :-) The local pub serve delicious food and the drinks discount given made evenings... more

Management response:

Thank you for taking the time to post here as well and pass on your thoughts to other potential holiday cottage travellers to West Dorset! We do try to provide all that is needed and... more

We were so lucky to find Wren Cottage and it be available for the limited dates we had. A perfect holiday cottage in an idyllic village set in a very accessible location to all the Dorset "must sees". We have 2 and 5 year old girls and a miniature schnauzer and Wren Cottage was absolutely ideal for us. Beautifully decorated... more

Management response:

Thanks so much for your review and for telling people how much you enjoyed both Wren Cottage and the village, including pub (it does offer great food and very reasonable prices doesn't it?) As you say, we are very well placed for visiting many of the great attractions in West Dorset and we have tried to make our cottage a... more
