Our party consisted of grandparents, parents and two children aged 5 and 3. The cottage is well-equipped and has all the facilities you can reasonably need - at least if the weather is good. We received welcome gifts of milk, eggs and a bottle of wine. The owners are friendly and helpful, and the farm animals provide interest and entertainment for the children, who have plenty of space to run around. The situation is quiet and peaceful, but there are pubs and other eating places within a ten-minute drive, and restaurants and takeaways in Dorchester which is only 15 minutes away. There are good facilities for cooking your own food. Lots of places to visit within about 25 miles and good beaches at Weymouth and elsewhere.
The cottage has triple glazing and a vast solar heating installation, and it's worth asking for advice about the best way to run a bath as the heating system produces slightly different outcomes from a gas boiler or immersion heather.
Note that the location shown under the "directions and map" tab on the website is a couple of miles out.
We all enjoyed our stay very much.
