Very good location, only 4 miles from Bridport. The cottage /kitchen was well equipped, it looks as if it has been recently refurbished. The decor was very good with a lot of light pastel colours in the furnishings - Stayed January 2018

Mrs L Vickers
From the moment we walked through the door I felt totally at home. The open plan layout gave a feeling of space but without loosing the cosyness of the cottage. We found the cottage well equipped, clean and comfortable. The location was lovely being in a hamlet with close proximity to the A35, Burton Bradstock and West Bay. Also we visited Lyme Regis, Charmouth and Bridport without having to travel too far at all. I very much hope that we will be able to stay in this delightful cottage again and soon.

Very nice cottage in a nice quiet area. Very comfortable stay. Nice pub nearby. Would stay here again if in the area - stayed August 2017

Mr A Watson
We really enjoyed our stay at Wheatsheaf Cottage. The bedrooms were very comfortable and the bathroom clean with a very good shower. Plenty of equipment in the kitchen and a very nice lounge. My only slight complaint would be the lack of wifi but that certainly didn't spoil our holiday. Askerswell is a lovely village and an excellent base to explore Dorset. We hope to be back! Also the weather was fantastic, better than the Med! Stayed June 2017

Mr & Mrs Lisk
Returning guest we have been many times. Everything perfect about this cottage and it was as good as ever. Stayed September 2016

Mrs J Jew
Cottage located in beautiful unspoilt village. Had everything we needed spotlessly clean small grassed garden at side of property sat outside as weather on some days was lovely. Not really explored Dorset before had super week with plenty to see would definitely return and use cottage again. Nice touch to have tea coffee milk and biscuits provided together with nice bottle of wine. Stayed July 2016

About the Location

Askerswell is a simply beautiful and unspoilt part of Dorset. This village is the perfect place to unwind amongst the chocolate box cottages and a pub which used to be an old smugglers inn dating back to 1745. Soak up the magnificent views across the Dorset countryside, go for long walks and then relax in the cosy pub with oak beams and log fires. The makings of a perfectly traditional English countryside getaway.
