    “We were without WiFi for two days as it had been switched off in the adjoining property.”

    Although Sykes were good about sorting this out it should never have happened. Despite a previous review saying the water from the shower came through the ceiling below, this had not been fixed.

    Although Sykes were good about sorting this out it should never have happened. Despite a previous review saying the water from the shower came through the ceiling below, this had not been fixed. The property is very dark and lighting is inadequate. The car parking space for next door is directly in front of the window. As mentioned by a previous reviewer the towel rail is far too small to dry even one towel, never mind two and the plug in the bathroom sink did not work.

The property

Offering an exceptional self-catering holiday experience in the beautiful Dorset countryside is Little Maltings, which can be found at the heart of the quaint village of Milton Abbas.

This superb property enjoys plenty of character, as well as contemporary features and furnishings, a place that you and your partner will be delighted to call home as you explore this part of the country.

Soak up your surroundings of the pretty village before pushing open the front door to discover the immaculate open-plan living room, home to everything you could possibly need.

Make use of the quality kitchen appliances to chef up your own delicious meals before settling down with your partner at the dining table to pop open a bottle of bubbly to toast to a long-awaited holiday together.

Afterwards, relax and unwind into your evening by sinking into the sofa and flicking through the channels of the Smart TV, with the electric fire offering additional warmth during the winter months and setting a tranquil ambiance.

Once the evening has drawn to a close, make your way upstairs to find a plush super king-size bed, that is awaiting to be curled up in after an action-packed day of exploring or choose to soak in the bath to truly relax before catching your rest.

Immerse yourself in your surroundings by taking a walk through the quaint village, featuring a plethora of pretty chocolate-box cottages, the gracious buildings of the Abbey Church and Abbey House, a handy farm shop and a welcoming pub which is less than 5 minutes walk from Little Matlings, and is perfect for enjoying a well-deserved pint.

If you are bringing your canine companion along or you just fancy exploring further, choose to walk part of the Jubilee Trail, a 90-mile route that explores the beauty of the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty or soak up the views from Bulbarrow Hill.

From the cottage, you are just a short distance from the endearing village of Milborne St. Andrew, home to a seasonal stream running down from the chalk downs or travel slightly further afield to the county town of Dorchester, home to a number of shops for an afternoon of retail therapy.

Alternatively, choose to spend your time at the coast, where you can enjoy the delights of Weymouth, West Bay and Lyme Regis, as well as the epic the 18-mile long Chesil Beach.

Little Maltings is a delightful base in which to enjoy this part of England.
