We had a wonderful stay at HIghlea. The cottage is beautiful with everything you could possibly want. The owners went the extra mile to make sure you were comfortable and happy. They let us have free use of their garden and even found some toys for our children to play with in their garden. The views were amazing. We feel we have found a real treasure in Dorset and will definitely be back. Fantastic value for money.

A warm and cosy quiet apartment in the heart of the beautiful English countryside with wonderful views to meadows with sheep, rabbits and pheasants - one could not wish for more. But there was even much more - an exceptional hospitality and willingness of both Doreen and Dennis who had welcome their guests with the most delicious cakes and scones and even Easter eggs for children. It was an unforgetable experience and a very pleasant stay. We simply felt like at home.
I stayed at Highlea with my 2 daughters at the end of June 2014 on the first leg of my summer trip from Singapore. It was wonderfully peaceful and comfortable making jet lag recovery very easy. The huge chocolate cake baked by Doreen helped a lot too! There were plenty of towels and hot water. The kitchenette was very useful to provide independence and the little sitting room had a lovely view over the well-kept garden, open fields and an Iron Age fort. Dennis was very helpful and chatty with all my questions and even donated a large bag for my packing efforts on the last morning. Highly recommended.
We all thoroughly enjoyed it and thank you both for your friendliness, making us so welcome and your hospitality...esp considering the three kids I had in tow!
Lovely location so quiet with great accommodation...I hope to be back one day.
Highly recommended and a great location for Poole/Bournemouth, Weymouth and the New Forest.
