We had a wonderful time in this lovely Village, The hosts were very welcoming, the attention to detail in the property was spot on, and we needed for nothing.
Would definable recommend this property and its owners to friends and family, and we hope to go back there in the not too distant future.
We stayed for a long weekend in November and though the weather was mixed we couldn't fault Garden Cottage.
Well equipped and decorated (and gratefully stocked with milk and nibbles after a long drive and late arrival).
Very handy location too. We visited Weymouth, Portland, Swanage and Dorchester - all within easy reach.
I came across Garden Cottage whilst searching for some centrally located accommodation for our whistle stop tour of Dorset. Luckily this most charming cottage was available. We received concise and clear instructions from the owner on the cottage's location and were greeted most cordially and shown around the property which is located behind the owners residence. Whilst the proximities of the properties are close, the feel of the cottage is very private. Located in the pretty village of Tolpuddle, Garden cottage fits in beautifully with the rest of its chocolate box surroundings. The cottage is extremely well equipped, infact it felt like "home from home" and we were very grateful of the welcoming drinks left by the owners and all the neccessities required to help us with our self catering accommodation. Obviously this fine late September early October weather also only added to a most relaxing and enjoyable stay. Thank you :)
We stayed for 5 nights and found the cottage very comfortable and the Hopkins very friendly owners. The cottage was very convenient as it was close to all the places we wanted to visit i.e. West Bay, Chesil Beach, Portland Bill, Cerne Giant, Thomas Hardy's cottage and Max Gate, T E Lawrence (Lawrence of Arabia) resting place not forgetting the lovely walk around Tolpuddle and learning about the Tolpuddle Martyrs.
We would recommend the cottage to everyone who needs time out to just relax in place which is home from home.
