We stayed in Axe Lodge which is a two person log cabin which allows you to take dogs. So far so good. On arrival we were immediately impressed by the spacious grounds around the lodges and a feeling of having your own space. The lodge was really well laid out and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. We usually avoid eating in a lot as it is a holiday. However because we had left it late for the break 6th October we knew eating out in pub gardens would be out, and with two dogs we would have to self-cater most of the time. A goody packed big supermarket delivery booked for our first night took care of that. We found that Lancombe Cottages had all the faciltiies we needed, a pool, a sauna, exercise area for the dogs, a library of dvds and books, games and a laundry. Because it was quiet it was like having a private pool and no one was ever in there when we used it so really felt exclusive.

In the area there is a lot to do, loads of beaches and at that time of year no dog restrictions on any. We went to West Bay and found a really nice fishmongers and bought some freshly caught fish and sea food. There are good dog walks at Frampton, near Cattistock and Hooke through woodlands. Bags of attractions if you have a family - we did go to Monkey World and this was fabulous and really enjoyable.

For non-home cooked food we got chinese take away from Dorchester, and although a 10 mile trip back still had hot food by the time we got it on the table. There is a fish and chip shop in Maiden Newton which is nice. The Pub in Cattistock is good and dog friendly. Local shops for the basic cupboard items are in Maiden Newton but both Tesco and Sainsbury deliver so if you feel inclined put in an order so you get a good selection delivered to the lodge or cottage. There are supermarkets within 10 miles though, if you do not want home delivery.

The weather was pretty poor but because the lodges were cozy, you could have a swim, sauna and go out and about during a clear spell and this was fine for us. If you are looking to be in the middle of a very busy area this is not for you. If you want to recharge the battery and find some tranquility then it is.

We stayed at Lydden Cottage which is a 2 bedroom cottage. A lovely place - we had a "welcome tray" on arrival with tea, coffee, sugar, and biscuits and milk in the fridge which was great.
The owners had left little towels as well as our "big towels" for our baby which was a lovely touch. It was equipped with everything you could need plus the on site swimming pool was lovely! It was a great base for exploring dorset and we were so lucky with the weather!!
We would definately stay here again next time we come to dorset!

Excellant accomodation at Broad Lodge - very peaceful and wonderfully relaxing. We had a lovely stay and were lucky that the sun shone every day. If we are in Dorset again we will definitely book this accomodation again.

We have just returned from a very wet stay at Wey Lodge but even with the rain this is without a doubt one of the most relaxing & scenic holidays we have ever had. The lodge was absolutely spotless on arrival & beautifully decorated with everything you could need for a break provided.. The views from the lodges are one in a million. The facilities were spotless and very clean. As mentioned by others the fox & hound pub in cattistock is a Lovely pub in a very pretty village. We will certainly be returning to lancombe lodges in the future!
