Warm and very cosy cottage in a great location, despite the busy road. Ideal location for lots of lovely walks and close to the sea. Very well equipped. very clean and very comfortable beds.

Tips:

Three good pubs in the vicinity, the George being directly opposite, the Clock just a short walk up the Main Street and the Anchor at Seatown which has great views over the sea and surrounding area.

The cottage was spotlessly clean, well equipped and one of the best we have stayed in. We expected traffic noise due to its location but this is balanced by its proximity to beaches - walking and by car, to local facilities and great walks. The biscuits and milk on arrival were a lovely touch too. I would highly recommend this cottage as do my children and we hope to stay there again.

Tips:

Book into the pub opposite at the weekends. Take a walk to Seatown beach

It was lovely to meet you in person Nicole and have first hand recommendations of dog walks and lovely places to visit. Although I have to say the details that you sent beforehand were equally informative. You had made the cottage a cosy comfortable place to stay with lovely personal touches that we all appreciated.

Tips:

We loved the area in general and there are wonderful beaches and stunning scenery all within a few miles. We caught the bus to Bridport and found it a very interesting town, worth a visit. The food in all the restaurants that we went to was excellent. The George (rude not to as it is directly opposite). The Clock,also in the village, with a heart rendering tale of the dreadful fire that left the family homeless but thankfully unharmed and how the pub rose from the ashes. The Hive Beach a fish restaurant (on Hive Beach of course and be warned we had to queue for about half an hour but it was well worth the wait)

Location of cottage great to explore the area. Cottage has everything you need for a stay away from home. Communication was also great. Brilliant place to stay very dog friendly and the garden is secure for smaller dogs which sometimes you don't always find.

Tips:

Walked every evening down to seatown of course stopping for a drink in the Anchor. Went for a meal in the George opposite very nice meal but felt it was a bit overpriced for what it was. Found Burton Bradstock beach which we found to be a wonderful beach for walking the dogs, and also Charmouth. Such a nice area to explore.

The cottage was cosy and very well equipped. It is only a short and pleasant walk to Seatown beach.There are 3 pubs in walking distance where you can get a meal. The downside is the very busy main road, theA35, which is difficult to get across if you're a pedestrian,and there is no pavemeny on the side of the cottage.However, I realise that this is an old cottage and they were not designed with today's traffic in mind!

Tips:

Lovely meals at the Clockhouse inn, very friendly local pub, not touristy. West Bay is interesting, where they filmed 'Broadchurch'

Absolutely gorgeous cottage, everything you need for a home from home, very cosy! The mattresses were too soft for our taste, and if you’re a light sleeper there is noise from the road quite early.

Tips:

Lovely walk to Seatown..... we loved visiting West Bay, only £2 to park by the beach all day and dogs are allowed on the beach under the cliff. Owners in Clockhouse are super friendly!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The Cottage was well equipped including the Kitchen. Very quaint and relaxing. Lots of places to go from right on the Doorstep if by Car or walking. We will definately return. The weather was kind to us as well. It was booked as a Birthday Treat so was really enjoyed. Many Thanks. Loraine & Bob

Tips:

Lyme Regis was nice. Sidmouth was so lovely with quaint shops and a lovely seafront. So many nice places in the area almost spoilt for choice.

Lovely, cosy cottage with everything you could need. The beds were really comfortable and a splendid welcoming pack! The dogs were also impressed with their welcome pack. Thanks for making us so welcome.

Tips:

We only stayed for a long weekend but managed to do several walks each day. We took our dogs on the walk to Seaton before breakfast every morning then out to West Bay, Charmouth and Chessil Beach. Felicity ' s Farm shop is brilliant for local produce and gifts to take home. Also, fish and chips at West Bay went down well after a long walk.

Beautifully furnished and well equipped cottage.

Tips:

Surrounded by lots of great walks and views. Walk to Seatown with a quick refreshment break at the Anchor! Lovely walk around the national trust woods and onto Golden Cap stop off at Felicitys farm shop. Try the Watch house at West Bay, New Inn at Eype, Hunters Ldge at Axminster if you are travelling around. Without a doubt go to the George opposite the cottage, food is lovely and staff really friendly, Sunday roast is lovely.

We love coming to Pound Cottage-our second time here. It is so cozy and well-supplied. It is by the road so a bit dangerous for crossing over, but great location for walking to Sea Town and climbing Golden Cap.

Tips:

It's a short drive to Charmouth for fossil hunting and Lyme Regis. We really enjoyed climbing up Golden Cap. Great farm shop down the road. The Anchor Inn does nice meals, over in Sea Town. Also a great play ground for kids at West Bay.

Cottage is lovely and cosy and thoughtfully decorated. Chideock is a very nice village with plenty of walks around and obviously the selling point of the cottage is being so close to the beach. Sunsets while enjoying a drink at the Anchor are amazing.

Absolutely everything was perfect except that we did find the traffic from the main road rather noisy, but the windows were very good so I expect it would not have been a problem except that we were there at an unusually hot time of year so we had to have all the upstairs windows open to sleep. Also the traffic on the main road made the journey to the beach bridle pass a bit harrowing. Everything else was ideal though - lovely garden (although rather noisy to sit out in), comfortable furniture, appealing decor, well-outfitted kitchen, helpful local guides in the guest binder.

Tips:

The George is excellent! Lovely food and nice pub all round. We also very much enjoyed eating at the Hive Beach Cafe which was quite near, and Brassica in Beaminster. The Abbotsbury Sub-Tropical Garden was a nice, shady place to spend a very hot day, and has good views of Chesil Beach. In addition to the local farm shop the one at Burton Bradstock is very good - it sells raw Jersey milk that is delicious.

Booking was very easy and if needed you were only a phone call away. Accomadatino was described accurately and even more than we expected. Thank you for a wonderful holiday.

Tips:

The George inn opposite is a excellent local pub and does great food. If you want a takeaway we would recommend K.Yuen in Bridport which is 5 minutes away by car. We also found a trip 15 minutes away to Hive beach is great if you have your dog with you, it is run by the national trust and has a great cafe to have some lunch at.

Most holiday homes - no matter how good - feel like ... holiday homes. Walking into this one felt as if we were stepping into someone's home, which they had only just momentarily vacated, leaving behind, everywhere, thoughtful touches : personal objects at your disposal, even a highly sophisticated fishing rod, logs for the fire, a very large good quality flat screen TV, immaculate bedlinen, excellent towels, all in tastefully decorated spaces. Usually, when we go, we like to leave a house cleaner than it was on arrival; on this occasion, it wasn't possible!

Tips:

Walk along the coastal path from Seatown to Eype and stop off for lunch or tea at Downhouse Farm. Fabulous setting on traditional farm, delicious, wholesome home-cooked food. Also walk from the house to Golden Cap for some amazing views.On a rainy day Dorchester Museum is a lovely, compact provincial museum in a beautiful old building (the galleried room alone is well worth the visit). Dinoland in Lyme Regis is another gem if you are into fossils.

The actual location as in coastal area was fantastic - very easy to get to different areas of Dorset. Location as in village was very noisy from constant traffic but it did not detract from this chocolate box cottage.

Tips:

The George Inn opposite cottage has not long been taken over the food is very tasty but it is advisable to book also The Anchor Inn at Seatown is worth a visit well worth walking there, don't forget torches. We visited Corfe Castle and village thats well worth a trip quite away but loads of places to visit on the way back if you set out early enough, Swanage Old Harry Rocks to name but a few.All these places were quite happy for our dog to visit as well.

We had a lovely few days in Dorset. Pound Cottage is equipped with everything you need and the extras like tea/coffee/biscuits/soap/towels etc are something you wouldn't normally find in SC accommodation. It was also spotlessly clean and I am fussy so would highly recommend it. Not really an issue but it is on a main road so families with young children would need to take care - there is a gate however.

Tips:

The pub opposite serves great food. A walk up to 'Golden Cap' is worthwhile for the views. We also did a nice walk from Charmouth to Lyme Regis.

What a cosy cottage! We really enjoyed our stay and loved all the extra touches. It's a really well supplied cottage in a great location. We hope to be back again.

Tips:

There is a great little 15 minute walk to the beach at Seatown. The kids loved the play area near the East beach of West Bay. Also Lyme regis with mini golf and some sandy areas of beach was a good day out. Also very close was the Chocolatiers cafe in Bridport. There's a farm shop down the road to the west which sells logs etc and we even found gluten free pasties there!

I booked Pound Cottage for my wife's birthday weekend. 2 young kids and our Whippet could not have picked a better place. Dreadful weather, I mean dreadful, but the cottage saved the weekend. Great location and a real home from home. More than everything you need and super comfortable and homely. Seriously do not look at anything else, if the cottage is available...book it.

The George opposite was fantastic and Jamie is very welcoming. Hive Beach Cafe is a few minutes away and well worth going.

Excellent cottage. clean and homely. Everything you need for a family of four, including, games, CDs and DVDs a plenty! Not that we used much as too busy exploring!

Tips:

Park less than 5 min walk away on way to beach, safe fenced in play area and additional field for football or other sports. Walk to beach suitable for taking kids bikes and scooters if a bit up hill on way back. Kids didn't complain! Pub on beach (the anchor inn I think) nice food, fantastic views & George inn (pizza night Thursday's - pre book) Morrisons 5 minute drive. Village shop open 8-8 for essentials! visiting West bay is a must!
