    “A nice cosy cottage which was spacious and well presented, in an excellent quiet village location, acting as an ideal base for exploring wider Dorset.”

    A couple of points to note: ...

    A couple of points to note: i). the heating, which was needed in the evenings, did not work consistently in all rooms per the instructions and seemed overly complicated. ii). we were very surprised that there was no separation of rubbish, recycling and glass in order to be dispossed of in the "normal" way. We noted the council policy re rubbish collection, highlighted in your welcome brochure, which seems very strange. Having stayed in several cottages for May half term in recent years, in Norfolk, Devon and Northumberland, there has always been a normal collection of rubbish and separate recycling by the council and given the size of the property is approximately equal to a normal family home I canot understand why the council would not treat it in the same way as others in the village in order ot promote recycling. It did seem odd that we had to throw everything away in 1 rubbish bin, given the current climate of promoting recycling as much as possible. However other than this the house was a great place to stay for our week away.

Located in the picturesque village of Langton Herring, this beautiful stone cottage offers delightful accommodation for all the family.

Boasting two sitting rooms, both with woodburners it’s sure to delight all year round.

The modern and spacious kitchen means you can work together to prepare your family meals, and the separate dining room gives you space to ignore the washing up for the evening, you are on holiday after all.

The enclosed garden with it’s sunny aspect, gives you the chance to relax with a nice drink and a good book.

Relax in the comfortable beds and wake refreshed for another day of Dorset advenutures.

The village is situated in a unique part of South West Dorset, just a short distance off the South West coastal footpaths perfect for observing the fauna and flora at the nearby Fleet Lagoon (the largest natural inlet of sea water in England) a haven for wildlife.

At the heart of the village, The Elm Tree Inn provides local ale and food, has a beer garden as well as being pet friendly.

A short drive to the east is the popular resort of Weymouth which has a golden sandy beach, numerous good restaurants and fine shopping facilities.

To the west is Abbotsbury, one of the quaintest villages in England and home to the famous Swannery - the only place in the world where you may walk through a colony of nesting mute swans, a true sight to behold.
