5 of 5 stars Reviewed 8 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We stayed in Barnes Cottage (part of Ellwood Cottages) in late May / early June.

In the group was myself (driver), two carers and a disabled lady in a wheelchair.

The owner John greeted us on arrival and showed us around the facilities. the cottage is in excellent condition and the disabled facilities were perfect. We were warned that mobile phone reception was patchy, but we found that it worked OK in the garden at the back of the cottages. WiFi worked fine and was fast!

We spent a week traveling all over Dorset with Barnes Cottage as a base. Wonderful!

Many thanks to John and Ann for a lovely stay!

The owners helped us unload our luggage from our car and showed us round the amenities on our arrival. The cottage was very comfortable, spacious and well equipped. The situation is beautiful in the Vale of Blackmore, with a lovely garden looking onto the fields and hills. It is very rural, and the lanes are narrow but traffic is sparse. The indoor swimming pool is well heated and the air temperature very warm, so very pleasant for swimming. Disabled people who need flotation devices for swimming, e.g. woggles/noodles, armbands, etc, should bring them. Broadband reception is fine; mobile phone reception problematic but I did successfully make a call from the garden. As the cottage is some way from shops and supermarkets it is advisable to bring some food; however, frozen meals can be ordered in advance from a firm in Blandford and they were delivered to the cottage before we...
