My husband and I stayed in Laurel cottage for one week with our family and grandchildren, 6 adults and 2 toddlers. It was absolutely perfect and there was nothing we could have expected to have there that wasn't already supplied.
The cottage itself is beautiful, spacious and tastefully decorated. I wanted to stay forever. It was equipped with everything and more - especially for the children. There were toys, buggy, travel cot, bed-side, stair gates, DVDs, games, puzzles, ball etc. The kitchen had all sorts of utensils and a very useful cooling cupboard in the kitchen island to cool wine and beer.
The gardens front and rear were secluded, large with lots of different areas to sit and enjoy the sunshine.
Only 5 mins in the car to Weymouth. There was also a bus hourly that turned just outside the cottage.
Lovely local pub with duck pond in front. We enjoyed a birthday meal there one evening and thoroughly enjoyed it.
I cannot praise this accommodation enough. It is in a great location, beautifully presented and equipped to a very high standard.

“ideal in many respects.house and location”

This lovely old house has plenty of charm. Room to move around even with plenty of people. The facilities for a younger child excellent ; we had a 20 month old with us and we didn't have to take any bulky equipment. Kitchen very good, bedrooms spacious. The garden very peaceful to sit out in. The owner very accommodating and fast with enquiries.
The location ideal, just outside Weymouth but easy to travel into. Good walks locally, with other venues easily reached: Corfe Castle, Hardy's birthplace etc.
A note though if visiting the Sea Life centre in Weymouth - we couldn't find admission prices on any info paper or website. Got there and found it was £23.00 + Each. Luckily the youngster is too young to realise we doubled back and went elsewhere, l gather from other sources could be cheaper if you pre book on line.
However it didn't spoil the house or holiday

“You could not ask for more from the cottage or location - just perfect!”

We spent a wonderful long weekend at Laurel Cottage, 4 adults and 4 children (aged 6 and under). The house is beautifully appointed and very comfortable and even provided toys for the children which was an added bonus. Weymouth is only a few minutes drive away and the children loved playing on the beach (even in the chilly March breeze). Corfe Castle and The Swanage Steam Train (imagine the children's excitement!) were slightly further afield but definite highlights and we have a list of other places we could have visited if we were staying for longer! Dorset has a lot to offer!

Sutton Poyntz is a peaceful village surrounded by wonderful countryside and remarkable views of the sea and coastline (a walkers paradise). A visit to The Springhead Pub, a short walk from the cottage and across the duck pond, is a must!

Not many holiday lets manage to tick every box when considering 'a perfect getaway' but Laurel Cottage exceeds expectations in almost every respect. It is a comfortable distance from London for a long (or even a short!) weekend break, and offers excellent accommodation in a location that combines rural village tranquility with the convenience of having Dorset's many attractions within easy reach. What more could you ask for!
