    “We stayed at Dormouse cottage during the Feb half term.”

    Here are our comments: Good points: Able to get into the property easily, and actually got an email the day before saying it had already been cleaned so we could arrive whatever time we wanted. Beds all very clean and comfy, we all slept brilliantly Cute, traditional cottage, with many features you would expect (this properly has steep stairs and low beams as you would expect a cottage to have) Bathroom clean with a brand new seal on shower screen, so no leaks when using the shower ...

    Here are our comments: Good points: Able to get into the property easily, and actually got an email the day before saying it had already been cleaned so we could arrive whatever time we wanted. Beds all very clean and comfy, we all slept brilliantly Cute, traditional cottage, with many features you would expect (this properly has steep stairs and low beams as you would expect a cottage to have) Bathroom clean with a brand new seal on shower screen, so no leaks when using the shower Fully enclosed rear garden to let our dog out into, this was great Good TV that worked well, and really good wifi even with multiple devices connected Microwave, fridge, cooker and other kitchen appliances all clean and worked fine. Warm and easy to heat to the temperature you want Arrived to a bottle of wine, tea and coffee making things and pre packeted biscuits waiting for us, this was a lovely touch! Not so good points: Other than the basics you would expect some areas of the cottage needed a good clean. I think this isn’t helped by all the decorative items around the cottage. I went prepared and wiped round with detox wipes. The sofa wasn’t great and was covered in dog hair. We spent about 20 minutes hoovering this. It did have a lot of scatter cushions and blankets on it so we removed these and didn’t put them back on then gave it a good hoover. The front door was quite stiff and needed a good pull / push to make sure it was shut properly. Others have commented on the noise from the windows, we didn’t really notice this too much and it definitely wasn’t an issue for us. Overall we had a great stay. It was comfy, we slept well and could easily sort food etc. The location is also great with plenty of things to do in and around the village. Plus our 7 year old son also really enjoyed it and slept well. Since returning the owner of the cottage contacted us for feedback and was genuinely interested in what we had to say and how he can make improvements. Again, Another great touch! Thanks for a lovely stay, we are booking for a return visit later in the year!

The property

This quaint holiday cottage rests in the popular coastal village of Burton Bradstock in Dorset and dates back to the 16th century.

With exceptional period features, including wooden beams and an inglenook fireplace, Dormouse is a quintessential village cottage in an ideal location for both country and coastal lovers.

A charming, well-equipped cottage style kitchen, and a snug sitting room complete with dining table for two invites you to prepare and enjoy a romantic meal, whilst the enclosed patio area is the perfect secluded area to sit and enjoy a drink.

When you’re ready, head out to explore Burton Bradstock and visit the famous Hive beach café or savour a meal in one of the local pubs.

Spend time taking in the stunning local coastline or take a drive to West Bay, which is less than two miles away, giving you a chance to explore the colourful fishing harbour and to sample some of the locally caught crabs and lobsters.

A drive to historic Abbotsbury is also highly-recommended during your time in the region, after you have explored the village and you have paid a visit to the sub-tropical gardens and Swannery, you can journey along the Jurassic coast road which spans the whole of the Chesil beach and view the breath-taking coastline from the top of Abbotsbury Hill.

A perfect location for exploring all across Dorset, Dormouse cottage is the perfect cosy cottage for a break.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.
