“Superb space with lovely friendly owners”
Reviewed 19 October 2012 for a stay in October 2012

Stayed with my husband, baby and my parents. Father has mobility difficulties so this space worked brilliantly for us. My husband and I used the upstairs room with baby while my parents used the downstairs room. We all loved the downstairs bathroom as the shower was very spacious. It suited my father perfectly as included a stool attached to the wall for him, but it also folded away for the rest of us. Because it's all on one level in the wetroom I was even confident enough to take baby in. There is also a large bath upstairs if you require it, although we're all shower people in my family.

Hoping very much to return as can see it will continue to be suitable with growing boy as garden completely enclosed and in nice weather with patio doors open we can all enjoy the space without concern. Great to find somewhere that fits the needs of everyone in our group from young to old. Plus with such friendly owners the whole experience was an absolute delight.

Weymouth is just as wonderful as ever it was, great beach, lovely walks and so much to see and do nearby.

“Fantastic Accomodation”
Reviewed 16 September 2012 for a stay in September 2012

Once again in our 4th year at Tidmoor Cottages, which is self explanitory, wonderful accommodation. Excellent facilities for mobility impaired, central location for exploring Dorset. Sarah Townsend is an excellent host, any needs are resolved if possible, will be staying yet again. Wonderful for carers of disabled visitor as you have two separate living areas if needed, wonderful idea as any carer will tell you.

“just what we needed”
Reviewed 26 May 2012 for a stay in March 2012

Stayed in the Barn for a week, whilst enjoying our brand new grandchild. It suited my wheechair-bound husband and my 90 year old mother, and me extremely well - every comfort, clean, well-appointed, everything we needed. And I enjoyed the walks down to the Fleet - so relaxing.

“Lovely place for someone with disabled needs”
Reviewed 3 April 2012 for a stay in October 2011

I took my Mum away to the Tidmoor Cottages in October 2011 and we had a lovely time, the surroundings and the cottage were absolutely stunning. Many of the apartments that I was looking at with disabled access looked very dated and not very appealing but Tidmoor Cottages was the complete opposite, it was modern and homely and still had all the essentials to make Mum's stay as comfortable as possible.

We're already planning our next trip to stay there in the Summer.

“Short break - February 2012”
Reviewed 4 March 2012 for a stay in February 2012

We were very comfortable in the Barn, where we spent three nights in half-term. There was plenty to do in the area, even in winter, so we enjoyed the walks to the Fleet Lagoon (visible from Barn) at Tidmoor Cove, Chesil Beach and to Ope Cove on Portland. The cottage is well-located between countryside and town, allowing easy access to Weymouth (10 minutes to centre).

We dined well on the generous servings at the Turk's Head in Chickerell village, and also at Lulworth Cove as we left.

The Barn is well-equipped and very clean, offering excellent views from the upstairs lounge and bedroom. Parking immediately outside the front door was very convenient with level access. Sarah, her son and their dog made us very welcome, and were available to assist, if required.

Staying again with Sarah & Alan at Tidmoor Cottages in the " Barn" was fantastic. My sister traveeled with us this time she uses a wheelchair & walker but she managed so well in the Barn as everything there was to her needs. I would certainly recommend this cottage to anyone, whether they have mobility impairment or not. it is situated is a lovely setting yet so near all attractions whether coast or country. Sarah & Alan are excellent hosts and will help whatever your request is. Would give this a 5* rating at all times.

the Barn was very very comfortable and we were warmly welcomed
as avid birdwatchers Radipole and Lodmoor RSPB reserves were very close by, also the Fleet and Portland Bill.
Loved visiting the Swannery to see the baby swans and watch the mass feeding at 12 noon.
Hope to return to the Barn
