“Best view in Purbeck”
Reviewed 1 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

An amazing, beautifully maintained and spacious cottage. Everything you could possibly ask for is available and provided - especially liked the fresh coffee grinder and the well stocked chest full of toys which delighted the little ones! Add all this to the fact that you have a large garden with one of the finest views you could ask for and your holiday is complete!

“A gorgeous country cottage for a young family”
Reviewed 20 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We have just returned from a super weekend break in Dorset with our young family (2 daughters aged nearly 3 and 15 months) and the Old Reading Room was the perfect place to set up base! It is very well equipped for families with high-chairs, toys, books, travel cot, ready-bed, children's cutlery and crockery and a beautiful secure garden with amazing views. Having spent the days at local beaches and towns it was lovely to come home to a peaceful house and share a bottle of wine in the cosy lounge. I hope to return soon.
