A lovely cottage very well situated for touring Dorset. The cottage (well, modern house really!) is very well equipped and comfortable. Kitchen/diner and lounge downstairs, and 2 bedrooms upstairs with a bathroom and a shower room (not ensuite, but just outside each bedroom). The only thing I found odd here was that only the bathroom had a toilet; the shower... more

We enjoyed a lovely week staying in Wren Cottage, Tolpuddle. The cottage is very clean and well equipped with everything you need for pleasant stay. Beds and sofas really comfortable. The location is very quiet and peaceful and The Maryty's Inn just around the corner has friendly staff and the food is very good. There is no shop in the... more

Management response:

As you say there is not a shop in Tolpuddle so you can either visit Dorchester (7.5 miles) for a choice of supermarkets) or Puddletown. This village is 2.5 miles away and has a very good shop with fresh bread and pastries daily,... more
