“5* cottage”
Reviewed 14 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014

This cottage is beautiful, it is in the heart of the village of Murnhull. It is one of the nicest cottages we have stayed in. The log fire was perfect for Dec! Traditional cottage with modern touches, iPod Dock, Central heating, TV & well equipped kitchen. Rachel, the owner, provided a hamper with lots of food & the kitchen has lots of little extras. The small touches make all the difference. We will definitely be back.

“A really beautiful cottage and a lovely place to stay”
Reviewed 3 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We had a wonderful stay - the cottage is beautiful both I nside and out, really well appointed, and we felt so welcome with all the little touches taken care of. Shop, butcher and pubs in walking distance.

“Perfect in every way.”
Reviewed 20 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

My wife and I stayed at Primrose cottage and we could not have wished for a more perfect place to stay in this lovely area of England. Primrose cottage offers everything that you could possibly need on a home from home basis. The cottage was extremely clean and very cosy and was easily the best cottage that we have stayed at over the last ten years.....Faultless. The owner was very pleasant and had left a wonderful welcome pack for us upon our arrival. I would highly recommend this cottage if you are looking to visit this part of England.

“Beautiful cottage”
Reviewed 28 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Exactly as described, a beautifully designed and presented cottage with all the comforts of home and a friendly welcome. Marnhull is surrounded by lovely countryside and too many sights to fit in to a week.

“All the luxury of a 5* hotel but with the homeliness of a delightful cottage”
Reviewed 8 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

people found this review helpful

We stayed at Primrose Cottage for 4 nights and it was simply wonderful. We had a such a relaxing break.

The cottage was immaculately clean and has everything you could need, we particularly appreciated the dressing gowns, fresh flowers, welcome basket and extensive selection of guide books. Sadly we didn't get time to make use of the bikes included at the cottage. Rachel really has thought of everything.

The local shop is less than 2 minutes walk from the cottage and is very well stocked. We used the cottage as a base to explore Dorset and the location is ideal to explore all corners of the county.

Overall, we would strongly recommend Primrose Cottage to anyone looking for a relaxing break, we cannot imagine a more perfect holiday cottage.

“A MUST stay. Fabulous!”
Reviewed 7 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We loved the cottage. Immaculate and tasteful, cosy but more than enough room. The welcome basket was a real treat and a well stocked cupboard too. Lovely garden and great location. We would go back in a second!
