“Lovely cottage to spend a winter week in.”
Reviewed 3 January 2012 for a stay in December 2011
person found this review helpful

Great cottage - really olde worlde, with huge log burner, sofa you can't get up out of and kindly the owner provides a log store from which you can help yourself. The bedrooms are lovely, cosy and comfortable and everything clean. The bathroom slightly lets the cottage down as it is relatively basic, but everything works. The hamlet is very rural - we found it was a bit like staying in a ghost town! - but the area is amazing - straight out of the cottage onto the lane and up over the hills to Durdle door with incredible views of the Weymouth bay and portland to Lulworth once you're up there. No problems with the owner or the arrangements - altogether a very enjoyable stay.

Glad you enjoyed your stay and found the cottage cosy and comfortable. We always try to supply a good store of logs (free of charge) for the log burner, as that is one of the many delights of staying at Stable cottage and provides a lasting and memorable experience.
