“A Gem”
Reviewed 11 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Without reiterating all the positive points from the other reviews, just add them together for this review.
A good place for exploring Dorset.
Skim through the "History of Beaminster" book in the cottage's "library" before exploring the village.
We took our own duvet as we tend to find the owners duvet is usually to high a tog for us, which it was in this instance.
Had a really good week, thanks Michael & Laurence.

“The best equiiped, cleanest and most comfortable ever”
Reviewed 24 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We have stayed im many properties in the West Dorset area and this is the best we have visited yet. Beaminster is a friendly little town in easy reach of Bridport, West Bay and Lyme Regis. Every property we have stayed in before has been missing soemthing that we needed - often trivial - hwever - we could not fault this - bed comfortable, superb shower and a wonderfully equipped kitchen. Every thing was spotless and the garden beautiful. We will, hopefully come and stay again.

“oodles of storage”
Reviewed 28 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

The only downside to this property is its location on a busy main road. If we'd thought about it before we booked, we might have missed out on a delightful holiday cottage, so not all bad. We appreciated the high quality fittings and linen as well as the amount of storage space. Beware, there is a small step from the living room to the bathroom, and another down into the kitchen, so dodgy for anyone with walking difficulties.

Thank you for this constructive feed-back. Yes, we are on a main road and unfortunately that particular week it was busier than normal because of local road closures.
The steps are one inch high and are mentioned in the access statement, and we acknowledge the point that it could be awkward for somebody with walking difficulties.

“Charming setting, convenient location, gracious accommodations”
Reviewed 16 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

A Cote is a lovely self catering cottage in the charming town of Beaminster. It is a short walk to the town center with an abundance of services such as bakery, restaurants, food store, post office, atm's, pharmacy and even hardware store. Bus services provides easy transportation to neighboring cities. Hosts, Laurence and Michael are friendly, helpful, non-intrusive, meticulous in their preparation of A Cote for its visitors and go to great lengths to make their visitors feel at home. The lovely garden provides an exquisite background for relaxing on the patio. RH

“Welcoming and relaxing”
Reviewed 28 July 2014 for a stay in August 2013

I ditto that of all the other reviewers. Firstly the cottage is squeaky clean, an absolute must when you're on holiday. The cottage has everything you need. Small things make a difference: tea, milk, biscuits left for you plus some dishwasher tabs and washing liquid....important things being a wife and mum! Also Egyptian cotton bedding and WiFi! The owners could not have been more accommodating. They were really friendly without being intrusive, treating us to Pimms on the terrace one evening. They were there if we needed them but left us to our own devices. The garden is shared with the owners but you have your own patio/terrace and we were often in the garden undisturbed (the garden is beautiful by the way). The owners were also great with our 9 year old son, looking and taking great interest in the fossils he collected. The cottage is also 2 minutes walk from the heart of Beaminster and is excellent for all holiday travellers whether you're after coast, countryside, relaxing or more energetic adventures. I'd thoroughly recommend 'A Cote' to anyone.
