“We struck gold!”
Reviewed 25 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

A very last minute booking and how lucky we were there was availability at this delightful cottage. Last minute emails and phone calls were dealt with very promptly. John, the owner could not have been more helpful. The small town of Beaminster is a perfect setting and near to the beautiful coast. The cottage itself is very homely and fantastically equipped with everything you will need. Having a washing machine is a great bonus too. The master bedroom is huge and the bed very comfortable. The second bedroom is compact, which might be a problem for two couples. However my son and his wife joined us for the weekend and there was plenty of space in the room for them.The garden is lovely with two seating areas and we were blessed with unusually good weather to be able to make use of them. Having little extras provided like loo rolls, washing up liquid, hand soap is very useful when self catering. Not to mention milk, tea and coffee for when you arrive. Wifi is another bonus. So all in all you would struggle to find better and feel comfortable and relaxed in a holiday cottage. We needed a tonic and that's exactly what we got.

“Well Equipped Cottage in a superb location”
Reviewed 6 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We stayed at the Cottage for week in March 2015 and can thoroughly recommend it! It is well equipped with everything guests are likely to need--all the equipment is modern, good quality and almost new! The cottage was spotless on arrival and we immediately felt at home as it was extremely comfortable.
The town of Beaminster is a good base to explore the Jurassic Coast and has enough shops, pubs, retaurants etc to make it uneccessary to wander too far if the mood takes or the weather is not kind to you!
The owners take a peronal interest in the property and are very friendly and do their utmost to ensure the stay is both comfortable and trouble free--the leaving of milk, tea coffeee and biscuits was most welcome on arrival!
I am pleased to say that the weather was terrific for the time of year and we got out and about for each day of our weeks stay and found many interesting places nearby such as Bridport and West Bay, Lyme Regis, Durdle Door and National Trust properies such as Hardys Cottage, Montacute House and Clouds Hill together with the NT coastal areas nearby such as Golden Cap and Burton Bradstock--it all added up to a very satisfying weeks stay!
We can thoroughly recommend Albert Cottage as a place to stay if you wish to explore the Jurassic Coast and environs!!

“Lovely cottage”

We really enjoyed our stay at this lovely, characterful cottage. It has been recently renovated, and is very clean and extremely well equipped. It has a nice garden with a barbeque for sunny evenings. The beds are very comfortable. Games and DVDs are provided. The owners are very friendly and helpful. Beaminster is a pretty town with shops for all everyday needs and good places to eat. There is lots to do in the area with many lovely walks - we particularly enjoyed Golden Cap, Hive Beach and Mapperton Gardens. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the cottage and the area.

“Excellent”
Reviewed 5 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

I have no problem at all in recommending this cottage. Based in beautiful Beaminster, nestled amid the lovely Dorset countryside, Albert Cottage has been restored to a high standard. It's an old cottage with all the mod cons. Character, but with everything you could possibly need. Would definitely stay there again.

Great place very clean and tidy lots of televisions for those with a larger family
It needs a few serving /salad bowls and a larger dishwasher if there were more than 2/3 people and perhaps some sun loungers but apart from that Great would go again any time

An excellent cottage, very clean, comfortable and well equipped. Two seating areas in the garden which were great for a sunny day. Enclosed garden which was perfect for the dog. Many lovely walks nearby with the coast not far away. The owners are friendly and we very much look forward to returning next year.

We just arrived back from a 3 day stay at Albert Cottage. It is a beautiful place with bags of character and plenty of room. It is a minutes walk from Beaminster and perfectly located for the Dorset coast and villages. The beds were really comfy and my daughters loved the big toy chest. Everything we needed was provided including a travel cot and stairgate. The cottage was really clean and the garden was gorgeous..
