    • “A very comfortable property, albeit rather overlooked by surrounding properties, in a very pleasant town. I would emphasize that when they say 'Parking for one small car' they mean exactly that. Luckily for us our car is small!”

    Mr Carran, CREWE, June 2018

    • “Charming cottage in a wonderfully friendly village, surrounded by beautiful countryside. The cottage was very well equipped, the village of Beaminster had a good selection of shops, butchers, green grocers and a good Co Op.”

    Mrs Birch, HORSHAM, April 2018

    • “Helpful holidays has that personal feel that so few companies have now a days. They always deliver!”

    Mrs Cox, April 2018

    • “We had a lovely weekend at Fiddlesticks Cottage - perfect size and shape for a family of four, and all mod cons.... Beaminster is a lovely little town - lots of pubs, nice shops, a Co-op just round the corner, for those last minute items, and the Beaminster Museum is a wonderful place to spend an hour or two on a rainy day...or even on a sunny day! The Giant Man at Cerne Abbas, and the beach at Lyme Regis are only 30-odd minutes away,,,two nice trips with lots of fresh air and walking, followed by cream teas and local ice-creams, respectively. Couldn't recommend it more - I'm sure we'll be back...”
