    “The overall appearance of the cottage was good, nice secluded garden and lovely hot tub, the house is beautiful.”

    There were adequate white goods for a comfortable stay and it was clean and has lots of bathrooms, lots of cutlery, plates, baking trays etc. A few basics for cooking in the cupboard which was good. Sam and Martin text me on the night before and were very approachable if you need anything. ...

    There were adequate white goods for a comfortable stay and it was clean and has lots of bathrooms, lots of cutlery, plates, baking trays etc. A few basics for cooking in the cupboard which was good. Sam and Martin text me on the night before and were very approachable if you need anything. However the bad points :The AGA converted to electric was a real pain to use as the only form of cooking (Apart from microwave and bbq). The radio didn't work and there was poor tech facilities, if you are going and expecting to dance around the kitchen with your kids - take a bluetooth speaker, I wish we had. The TV is not a smart TV so no logging into Amazon Prime or Netflix, maybe we could have used a laptop and an hdmi cable if I knew I would have taken ours. No recycle bin available. Draw handles falling off drawers, broken windows etc. a little shabby for a five star. We did enjoy the hot tub and as the weather was so hot the week we went, we took a paddling pool for the kiddos and used the hose to fill-up. There were no kitchen scales and Sam and Martin were quick to supply some which was fab. The local area was very nice and can recommend the Indian restaurant turned takeaway in Blandford next to The Crown Hotel. Overall a good stay.

About the location

BLANDFORD FORUM

Thornicombe 2.7 miles; Child Okeford 6.5 miles; Moors Valley Country Park & Forest 17.9 miles.

Blandford Forum is a market town in Dorset, England, situated by the River Stour. Notable for its Georgian architecture, most of the town was rebuilt in the 18th century after it was destroyed by a fire in 1731. King George II made a donation to rebuild the town centre with designs from local architects John and William Bastard. The Blandford Georgian Fayre is an annual event held in the first week of May and celebrates its Georgian heritage, with presentations, historical re-enactments and music and dancing. One of the town’s biggest events takes place on the late Bank Holiday weekend, the Great Dorset Steam Fair. A largely colourful festival with over 2,000 exhibits and an old time steam funfair. Offering a wide selection of independent store, supermarkets, pubs, restaurants, cafés and a Georgian tearoom. So much to visit within this quaint town and makes for a wonderful tourist attraction, whatever the season.
