    “The cottage was vey lovely , very well equipped, and the couches and chairs were very comfortable indeed!”

    Thank goodness for the electric stove in the living room as the week we stayed there, the temperatures outside were freezing. Having the heat go off during the day meant we had to rely on the electric heater more than normal, The garden was the only let down of the property. The levels are a bit dangerous, particularly for my partner who has a visual disability. Also, having no where for a dog to pee and poo is a drawback. Thankfully grass was nearby where we had to take our dogs to in the ...

    Thank goodness for the electric stove in the living room as the week we stayed there, the temperatures outside were freezing. Having the heat go off during the day meant we had to rely on the electric heater more than normal, The garden was the only let down of the property. The levels are a bit dangerous, particularly for my partner who has a visual disability. Also, having no where for a dog to pee and poo is a drawback. Thankfully grass was nearby where we had to take our dogs to in the morning and evening. Overall we enjoyed our stay and really loved exploring the area.

    Thankyou for your lovely feedback, we are so pleased you loved our cottage. We do include handy information in the guest welcome folder about how to adjust the cottage heating, etc and are always on hand to help during your stay. We do show the different levels of the garden in the photos, for guests to be made aware of this before they book. We hope to welcome you back to Dorset again soon. Property Owner

The property

This lovely, detached 19th-century home, Fiddlesticks Cottages, is located in the vibrant Dorset town of Beaminster.

Fiddlesticks Cottage welcomes four guests and their four-legged companion to enjoy a tranquil getaway to Dorset.

It has a stone façade and a delightful interior.

Kick off your shoes and settle into the plush sofas in the welcoming sitting room, which features a TV and an electric flame-effect stove, while the assigned chef prepares delectable dishes in the light-filled kitchen/dining area.

As you plan your upcoming days, gather the family around the dining table for a meal and toast to a wonderful holiday while cracking open a bottle of champagne.

If you don't feel like cooking, go upstairs to find a roomy bathroom, and take a relaxing bath or energising shower before going to the neighbourhood pub.

As the evening ends, retire to one of the two charming bedrooms and pick between a king-size or a twin bed to get some rest before another day of exploring the neighbourhood.

When you're ready to go exploring, stroll into the town to find a wide variety of eateries, cafes, pubs, and shops, as well as the fascinating Beaminster Museum.

In the area, you can join Donkey Walking Adventures for a fun afternoon that gives you the chance to interact closely with these adorable animals.
