Wonderful location, lovely thatched period cottage and generally well equipped BUT it comes with serious issues. The main concern being the long term rat infestation. The owner was very reluctant to admit to the problem but the burrows were long established and the people sleeping in the downstairs bedroom were kept awake four nights out of five with the sound...

Management response:

I am very disappointed by this review after a long summer of excellent reviews and happy customers and must apologise to my customers for our failings in this case.

Additional amenities & feature info
Rose Cottage is a typical old world thatched cottage with beams and low ceilings. The bedrooms are fully furnished but not spacious. Extra cots are a possibility in the three double rooms but camp beds would be a tight fit. The twin room could accommodate an extra bed and the single has a small pull out bed making this a child`s twin. There is bed space for 9 adults but numerous children could be fitted in as well. The cottage is a remarkably spacious family house and absorbs large numbers comfortably. All rooms have Freeview television with DVD. There is no terrestrial signal for television in Lulworth which means a Sky dish brings in the signal but there is no Sky package. There is free unlimited WiFi. A USB socket can be found at the kitchen breakfast bar.
