“Wonderful location”
Reviewed 26 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Hill view is situated in delightful peaceful setting .accommodation downstairs is large with lots of comfortable seating. Upstairs is smaller but adequate. Only means of cooking and boiling a kettle is the aga,there is a bread maker but no toaster which would have been useful.
It is the first holiday cottage we have stayed where there is no welcome pack eg. Milk etc. Something to bear in mind if arriving late , also no tea towels provided and no one to greet us despite ringing prior to arrival as requested.
We enjoyed our stay very much but if staying in warm weather remember the aga is in constant use .

Thank you for your positive review. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay in Hillview Cottage.

The AGA is fabulous for all cooking needs, including making toast and boiling the kettle. Our cottage guide includes details on how to use the AGA and there are a number of AGA recipe books to provide guests with additional ideas. The kitchen is also equipped a microwave.

Tea towels are provided as standard. If any items are missing, our housekeepers will provide them. Contact numbers are provided by email prior to arrival.

“Beautiful and comfortable cottage in a peaceful setting”

We had a lovely half-term holiday at this beautiful and comfortable cottage. The setting is extremely peaceful and the cottage has a pretty garden which would be lovely in the summer. Our girls (aged 4 and 7) loved exploring the garden and the nearby wood. The main attractions of this part of the country (Lyme Regis, West Bay, Dorchester etc) are only a short drive away.

As an extended family of six we had a lovely stay in this beautiful old cottage. Situated in wonderful rolling hills of Dorset and within a reasonable drive of the jurassic coast we found Hillview Cottage to be a fantastic base. We enjoyed thel character features, the AGA, the stove and the family kitchen and socials areas downstairs. Excelllent find, would recommend and would return. Thank you.
