“Have just returned from our 3rd holiday at lovely Orchard Cottage.”

We have just returned home from our 3rd holiday at lovely Orchard Cottage and I am very pleased to state that the property and area remains as lovely as our previous visits. Furthermore, the owners David & Elaine have added some great new extras to the cottage such as revamping the kitchen and also adding a brand new conservatory which has enhanced its features even more. We were very lucky to have experienced lots of sunny days when the rest of the country was unfortunately suffering floods. This meant that we were able to explore the wonderful coastline near to the cottage such as Lyme Regis, Charmouth, Beer and Bridport. We also had an enjoyable meal in a Masterchef winner's restaurant in nearby Beaminster and got to meet him in person. Once again the owners were very warm and friendly towards us both, so much so that when they found out it was my boyfriend's birthday they presented him with a bottle of wine.

Management Response
19 Oct 2012
We feel compelled to respond to this review because it contains a great deal of mis-information. We meticulously check furnishings and appliances on every changeover. The bed in question was checked on changeover and was in good condition. It was reported to us on the second day that the bed was broken. The bed was fixed immediately on Saturday evening. A number of supporting timbers had been broken. Two teenage girls had been sleeping in the bed. Whilst the repairs were being affected, a stain to the bed linen was noticed by us. This had not been reported to us by the customer. All linen is freshly laundered and checked in situ. It is impossible for dirty or stained linen to be put on any bed. We make every effort to greet guests on their arrival, these guests were met in the cottage shortly after arrival. Clear directions and entry instructions are provided to all guests prior to arrival. A community shop is due to open in the village shortly.
