“Deceptively spacious & well-equipped cottage in delightful Dorset village - & added bonus of the hot tub!”
Reviewed 3 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Beautiful Dorset with its rolling countryside right on the doorstep! Village pub serving delicious food (we had a great pub lunch AND fab Saturday dinner there) within a very short walk of Cob Cottage. Fantastic coastal & countryside walks nearby.
Our minor queries were sorted out immediately with the housekeeper and we found the house was very clean with fresh white linen and fluffy white towels and a well-equipped kitchen. The hot tub "manager" arrived shortly after us to check all was ok for our first dip!
A great family reunion was had by all!

“Cozy cottage in rural location”
Reviewed 14 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Wow. Spent 4 nights at Cob cottage and it had everything we needed to enjoy a relaxing few days in this wonderful part of the UK. Very clean and spacious with a huge garden.
Our days were action packed so only had the evening to enjoy the comforts, there is also a wood burning stove which we didn't need as the weather was fairly mild.
Only negative was no private parking, we had to park the car jammed up against the hedge as there was hardly any room for other vehicles to pass to access their properties. However this did not spoil our visit one bit. Thank you to William and Sabine for allowing us to stay with our three dogs.... we had a great time !

Delighted to have you as our guests and very pleased that you all had a wonderful time. The parking directly outside the house is tight (rural village life!) but further up the road there is more space. We do hope we can welcome you and the dogs again soon. Many thanks for choosing to stay with us.

Just returned from a super weekend at the cottage. It was clean and well situated in a lovely little village. We really enjoyed exploring Weymouth, Lulworth Cove and the local pub! The hot tub was an added bonus!

“Charming holiday cottage!”
Reviewed 3 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Very good customer service during booking and leading up to stay. Keys easy to access and cottage very clean. Slight problem with hot tub but owner kept in touch to sort problem. Village very quiet but suited us as a good base to travel between Swanage, Weymouth, Dorchester and Charmouth. Would recommend as an all year round holiday.

“Cob Cottage”
Reviewed 3 September 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We rented Cob Cottage for a week, for two families - each with a 2 year old child.

The cottage itself was clean, tidy, and very child friendly. The kitchen area was very well equipped for cooking large meals, with plenty of table space for eating in a group. The nice big garden was ideal for toddlers to run around in; and a well proportioned hot tub is available too - which was fantastic. The cottage came with one stair gate (on request), but we found it better to take another along as well to allow one to be in place at both the top and bottom of the stairs.

The location was perfect for our week - 30-40 mins drive to the various beaches & tourist spots from Lyme Regis to Weymouth, easy access to other tourist places / museums / etc, 15 mins from a supermarket, & 5 mins walk to the village pub for a Sunday roast.

All in all, highly recommended! 5 stars!

Liked best: Quiet, and central location. Owner very easy to deal with and responsive to any questions.
Liked least: A little expensive for a 1-week stay (but during school holidays) so would rate the overall price value as 'ok'

“An excellent homely base for exploring Dorset”
Reviewed 18 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We had a lovely week's break staying in Cob Cottage. 4 adults and 2 children stayed in a deceptively spacious house. Everything was extremely clean and we felt really comfortable there. The location is ideal for exploring large parts of Dorset, and Weymouth was about a 15 minute drive away, with Dorchester being even closer.
