We had a fantastic week staying at West Lane Cottage. The accommodation was first class! Would highly recommend to anyone who wants to stay in this beautiful part of Dorset.
West Lane Cottage is a delightful place to stay. The cottage itself is both welcoming and homely. We stayed here for a week with our two sons and our working Cocker spaniel.
Helen was wonderfully helpful throughout - from our initial contact when booking, right through to our arrival, supplying us with useful information, and helpful advice regarding our stay, and with ideas for days out.
We really loved the location of The cottage. Located in the beautiful picture postcard style village of Piddlehinton, the thatch roofed houses and river piddle running through make for an idyllic setting, yet only a 10 min drive to Dorchester.
The cottage is extremely well equipped, there are stacks of local information and local knowledge, games and jigsaws, books, DVDs and the all important wi-fi access!!
The kitchen is great, as are the bedrooms and bathrooms. We enjoyed BBQs in the courtyard using the BBQ provided in the shed! Lovely.
The boys both enjoyed the Millenium field, and playing in the river catching fish, whilst the dog and I loved discovering the beautiful rolling hills of the surrounding countryside.
Thank you Helen, we thoroughly enjoyed your cottage.
One of the best rentals I've ever been to. The cottage was fantastic, well equipped, clean and a fantastic amount of information supplied for Dorset. We loved every minute and the dogs loved the bridal path!
We loved our stay at West Lane and have lovely memories to take away with us. The cottage is very comfortable and ideally situated beside a bridle path for dog-walking. I found the kitchen well-equipped and the sitting room was cosy, with a second sitting room just made for some secluded reading. The bedrooms were great and there are also three bathrooms and fabulous showers. The cottage was so easy to find and the key safe meant we weren't tied to an arrival time, which was great as we came a long distance. Despite the rural licat o on, the cottage is close to Dorchester and we enjoyed mixing our outings between coast and inland trips. Lulworth Cove and the Durdle Door are stunning and so is Kingston Lacy, so we found the central location of the house very handy. The owner was really helpful from the first contact we made to the last, even emailing a list of July events in the area before we came.
We have just spent a great week at West lane cottage. The beds were very comfortable and the shower was excellent. It was the best equipped cottage we have stayed in, ideally placed for visiting Dorset and Devon. The bridal path right next to the cottage was great for taking our dog a walk.The help and advice from Helen before we arrived on things to do and places to visit was very helpful. The tea, biscuits and milk were a lovely touch upon our arrival. Overall, I would not hesitate in recommending the cottage for a stay in Dorset. We loved it that much that we are going to stay in Wren cottage next year, also owned by Helen.
