A lovely cottage very well situated for touring Dorset. The cottage (well, modern house really!) is very well equipped and comfortable. Kitchen/diner and lounge downstairs, and 2 bedrooms upstairs with a bathroom and a shower room (not ensuite, but just outside each bedroom). The only thing I found odd here was that only the bathroom had a toilet; the shower room did not, which I have never encountered before! However there was a second toilet downstairs.
We found all our dealings with the owner (phone or email) to be very welcoming and efficient, and the cottage had masses of leaflets/books/maps about the local area. Free wi-fi as well - very helpful as I didn't have a very good mobile signal (O2).
The village of Tolpuddle is extremely quiet. No shop (closest one is 2 miles away); but with a very nice pub - the staff were extremely friendly. I can recommend the Monday curry night - all you can eat plus a drink for under a tenner - great value! We also went back another night and ate from the main menu. Nearest supermarket is in Dorchester.
Places we enjoyed visiting nearby (all within 30mins or less) were Monkey World, Swanage Railway (plus Swanage), Corfe Castle, Kingston Lacy (national trust), Weymouth, Dorchester and Kingston Maurward.More
