Where to start? We arrived at Church Gate Cottage after a long and at times harrowing drive. We opened the heavy wooden door and all cares melted away! If you are seeking peace and tranquility, this is THE place. Not all houses have a friendly atmosphere, but Church Gate softly embraces the soul. The restoration of this beautiful dwelling is...

The owner was very helpful and accommodating; he took the trouble to write detailed information, which was extremely useful. The property itself is gorgeous and few people will have the opportunity to stay in such a pretty, historical cottage so we felt quite privileged. A great deal of thought has been put into the needs of self-caterers and, with 3...

We've just had a week's holiday in the cottage and if your looking for beautifully equipped accommodation in a peaceful backwater this fits the bill. There were only two of us in this three bedroomed cottage so naturally we had plenty of room, but the furnishings and equipment are all first class. There is a nice patio at the rear...

Additional amenities & feature info
We have done our utmost best to furnish Church Gate Cottage to a high standard. Not only do we want you to be as comfortable as possible, and enjoy all the 'mod cons' you'd expect to find in a modern home, but we like to spend time there too, which should mean we've not overlooked any details in the equipment we've provided throughout the cottage. It isn't apparent from the photographs, but we have a second WC with wash basin downstairs, a useful addition when the cottage is full. A babys travel cot is available (and does not count towards one of the six beds!) but guests are requested to bring their own cot bedding if they intend to use this facility.<BR><BR>The garden is simple, with a well built, lit patio immediatley outside the back door, raised... more

About the neighbourhood
We strongly advise anyone holidaying in our cottage to bring a car. Whilst it isn't essential, there are so many interesting places to visit within a short drive that it would seem a shame not to take the opportunity. Dorchester, the county town of Dorset, is a must for any Thomas Hardy fan, and though further than Crewkerne from the cottage, it offers a greater range of shops for those wishing to 'scratch a retail itch'. Further afield are other historic Dorset market towns such as Sherborne, Cerne Abbas and Blandford Forum which are also worth a visit.<BR><BR>In the summer we like to head to the coast for days out with the kids. The famous landscapes of the Jurassic Coast are rich with beaches and fantastic scenery. West Bay near Bridport is small, picturesq... more
