Crowthorne is an excellent holiday destination within easy reach of everything you could want. The facilities are very good and the few tiny issues we had were dealt with very quickly and did not detract from the stay. The cottage was large enough for all 8 of us ( and the two dogs) and was not crowded at all, but due to the weather most of the time was spent in the large garden with the BBQ getting a great deal of use. Very good pubs nearby with good food and only a short drive to Dorchester and the Jurassic coast. The wildlife hide was well worth a visit, it was the first time that we have seen live badgers (ended up seeing 5 at once!).We would definitely go back.

“Cracking Cottage, Great Position, Ideal for Wheelchair Users”

Absolutely agree with other reviewers - this is a really well-thought out holiday rental, very well equipped, spotlessly clean and comfortable, with plenty of outside space.

It's not easy to find a quality rental that can accommodate a family, one of whom is a wheelchair user - so many 'disabled' accommodations are pretty poorly decorated and spartan, but the owners of Crowthorne have got it absolutely right, so full marks to them for that. They are also very pleasant and welcoming, and keen to make sure everything is OK.

We had a great time and will be going back.

“Great location, lovely cottage”

We holidayed at Crowthorne with our young daughter, Labrador and friends who have a young son.
Crowthorne's in a great position, nestled in gorgeous countryside and close enough to Dorchester to make day trips easy. There are some lovely walks right from the front door.
The cottage itself is well decorated, clean and very nicely furnished with very comfortable sofa's and beds.
The 4 bedrooms, each with its own en suite, made bedtime with 2 young children a breeze.
The garden is lovely, and well secured with fences and a gate which allowed the adults in the group to relax as the children, and dog, played.
The owners were delightful to deal with, and couldn't have been more helpful.
We didn't make use of the hide or games room as we were out every day.
For larger family groups, or friends with young children this is perfect.
