My wife and myself, stayed in Droop Farm Cottage to familiarize ourselves with Dorset, and to visit possible rural locations for a property move from Surrey. The cottage is ideally situated to explore Dorset, it is extremely rural with all the advantages of wildlife, countryside, and peace, and yet it is not far from the Dorset Jurassic Coast, or neighboring County or local attractions.The cottage is extremely well appointed, there is plenty of space, the beds are comfortable, and honestly, it wants for nothing. The owners, David and Tracey are extremely helpful, friendly, and genuine people, and their dog Alfie is a joy. They were extremely generous with their unexpected welcome pack, which included a “Jar-Of” Tracey’s award winning marmalade, and a delicious home baked cake. We recommend Droop Farm Cottage to one and all, you will not be disappointed.

“Dog Owners do not miss out on this Cottage”
Reviewed 14 February 2017 for a stay in January 2017

This is a must for those dog owners who love excellent walks from the door ,in a quiet picturesque location and staying in a cottage that is truly a home from home for both humans and dogs alike. In addition you get the fabulous touch of a welcome basket from the owners containing Dorset cereals, biscuits, home made marmalade, Dorset Tea, bread and treats, toys and poo bags for the dogs. The cottage itself has a good layout with large kitchen, shower room/toilet, double bedroom and lounge downstairs with a further 2 bedrooms and a good sized bathroom upstairs. It was well decorated and very clean throughout. It has a large secure lawned area attached to it that was perfect for our two busy spaniels with large open fields literally 50 metres walk away.
Thank you for an excellent break.

We booked this cottage for a long weekend over the May bank holiday and were very glad we did. The location was great, quiet and peaceful but with places to visit, (including the coast) and plenty of walks in the area. The garden and outside were well kept and there are terrific views from the patio area.
We received a very warm welcome from Tracey and Alfie, (the dog) and felt immediately at home.
The cottage was wonderful, with a well equipped kitchen, comfortable sitting room and spacious comfortable bedrooms. Everything was spotless and the cottage was full of thoughtful touches. The welcome basket of bread, milk, Dorset cereals and Tracey's wonderful Ajar of marmalade was very much appreciated.
If you are considering a break, short or long, with friends, family old or young, this place fits the bill and we were sad to leave.
Thank you David and Tracey for your wonderful hospitality and beautiful cottage.

This is a beautiful cottage with all the modern facilities that you could ask for. The gardens were excellent and a great place to just sit and relax. There is plenty to do if you enjoy the countryside and the coast and other attractions are only a short drive away. The owners, Tracey and David made us feel very welcome. I would certaintly recommend this venue for anyone that wanted to visit Dorset.

“Amazing Accomodations”

Fantastic, remote location but provides easy, drivable access to Stonehenge, Corfe Castle, and other interesting locations.
The home itself is fully equipped with everything we needed for a lovely four day stay. The kids loved the open garden, Alfie the dog, playing croquet, and being surrounded by nature. The quiet location really gave our family time to relax, read, talk, and spend quality time together.
The owners are exceptional. They balance privacy and accessibility for questions about the local area. They also create a really incredible batch of jams, marmalades, etc....highly recommended.
This stop was one of the most enjoyable and memorable during our trip around the world, including several thousand miles of driving in UK and Ireland.
The whole family wants to return for another holiday.
