Great place very clean and tidy lots of televisions for those with a larger family
It needs a few serving /salad bowls and a larger dishwasher if there were more than 2/3 people and perhaps some sun loungers but apart from that Great would go again any time

An excellent cottage, very clean, comfortable and well equipped. Two seating areas in the garden which were great for a sunny day. Enclosed garden which was perfect for the dog. Many lovely walks nearby with the coast not far away. The owners are friendly and we very much look forward to returning next year.

We just arrived back from a 3 day stay at Albert Cottage. It is a beautiful place with bags of character and plenty of room. It is a minutes walk from Beaminster and perfectly located for the Dorset coast and villages. The beds were really comfy and my daughters loved the big toy chest. Everything we needed was provided including a travel cot and stairgate. The cottage was really clean and the garden was gorgeous..

“Well fitted out cottage in a lovely village”

Albert cottage is lovely- it's a nice period cottage but recently refurbished to a high standard. The master bedroom is huge and gets great light throughout the day. It has a nice garden and is in a nice village which is near the coast. John and Elaine, the owners, were very helpful and invited us to use the facilities at their other cottages nearby. Strongly recommended.

“Beautiful little cottage in a great location”

We absolutely loved the cottage - beautiful decor throughout, spacious yet cosy, a great shower, spotlessly clean and it had everything we needed. The little treats on arrival were a lovely touch!
The cottage has such a lovely feeling about it, I have no doubt that we will try to visit again.
Highly recommended and great value.

“Quirky,but clean character cottage in beautiful countryside.”

I stayed at Albert cottage with my husband and our three children.It was spotlessly clean ,well equipped,especially in the kitchen but still maintained the quirky old-world character of a period building.The house is full of lots of interesting historical decorative features and the beds are really comfortable.The master bedroom has the most fantastic bed frame which I believe was made by a local craftsman.There is an usual feeling of space for a period cottage and the tv's in the bedrooms and lounge -very handy with teenagers to entertain.The walked garden looks like it would be a lovely sun trap when it gets a bit warmer.The off road parking definitely a bonus.
The town of Beaminster is just the right size -with enough facilities of pubs,restaurants and foodshops-not to forget the shops to potter round whilst still feeling as if we were getting away from it all!.
The surrounding countryside is a walkers paradise whilst the kids loved the beaches and fossilising. We had a lovely time here and hope to return in the summer if its available!!
