“holiday”
Reviewed 21 May 2018 for a stay in May 2018

having just returned from water meadows, cottage very nice few disadvantageous, very small hand basin in en-suite. no where to hang your wet clothes etc. swim wear
when getting out of the hot tub, which is very nice indeed.
also you have to watch your head in kitchen as very small.
other wise lovely size lounge and bedrooms and nicely decorated.

“Lovely stay in well equipped cosy cottage”
Reviewed 21 April 2018 for a stay in March 2018

person found this review helpful

We had a fantastic stay at this cottage. Using it as a base to explore the Jurassic coast. The cottage is very modern and was always warm. (Stayed in Easter when it was cold)
We only used the hot tub once on the last day and it was great. Wished we'd used it more. perect for resting after a lot of walking.
The village itself is very nice and quiet with enough shops to get the basics.
This was the perfect stay

“Perfect place to stay in quaint Maiden Newton, Dorset”
Reviewed 18 April 2018 for a stay in March 2018

We had a wonderful stay the last week of March. The house was fully equipped with everything we needed to cook our own meals, have a perfect night sleep and the hot tub was an extra fabulous bonus. Mark and Karen had provided us with information about many beautiful walks, local eateries and attractions. It was perfect.

“Very comfortable cottage with added bonus of hot tub.”
Reviewed 3 April 2018 for a stay in March 2018

The cottage was lovely with everything we needed for a relaxing holiday. It was clean and comfortable and it was great to have an ensuite attached to each bedroom. The hot tub was most welcome to relax at the end of the day. The location of the cottage was very good for touring Dorset. The only slight difficulty we found was the slope from the parking area to the cottage. My husband has injury to his legs and our friend who accompanied us has breathing problems so they both found some difficulty with the slope. I had no problem with it.

“Hidden gem perfect for a getaway with the dog.”
Reviewed 2 April 2018 for a stay in February 2018
1
person found this review helpful

We would highly recommend the Water Meadows Cottage for a base to explore Dorset. The cottage is spacious, comfortable beds (which is good for a bad back) and the hot tub was an added bonus even in Feb. The garden is a lovely place to relax and our Mini Schnauzer loved exploring the garden which was fully enclosed. The information given about walks in the area and where to eat was perfect for getting to know the area quickly. The local pub (Chalk & Cheese) was a hidden gem. The locals were welcoming and great for giving advice of where to visit and walk away from the usual tourist places. We loved our 3-night stay at the cottage and are now trying to decide when to visit again.

“Lovely cosy cottage to be in for Christmas”
Reviewed 25 January 2018 for a stay in December 2017

We had a great Christmas stay in the cottage. It was warm, cosy and had everything we needed. Mark and Karen had made it very festive and the children loved the novelty of having a Christmas hot tub experience! Many thanks

“Cosy cottage”

Lovely cottage. Warm and cosy. Lovely power shower and comfortable beds. Kitchen abit small but ok for a few days. Close to Dorchester and Weymouth. Had a nice meal in the local pub the Chalk and Cheese. Locals friendly and pub dog friendly as well. Nice touches with the dog treats and toys in the cottage we do appreciate that very much.
