    • “Cottage lovely and warm very cosy. We felt at home on arrival. Everything you need and more. Pub across the road with great menu and Large G/F choice. Well stocked community shop. No real bus service we drove to Bridport to use bus service.”

    Mrs Walsh, Bolton, October 2018

    • “We enjoyed our stay and Blackbird Cottage was lovely. We particularly liked the log burner. The bedrooms were clean and functional. The kitchen was so well equipped with everything you might want. We did find the large sofa uncomfortable to sit on and also the fact that hot water only comes on twice a day made us nervous about using the amazing bath in case we used all the hot water up. Lovely pub across the road. Shop was great.”

    Mrs Whitehill, Leicester, October 2018

    • “We know that Helpful Holidays work to a very high standard so that is why the property met rather than exceeded expectations. There were a couple of tiny details which we mentioned in a note left at the cottage. All in all a delightful cottage in a stunning location. Loved the friendly pub over the road. Loved that there was an enclosed garden for our dogs.”

    Mrs Kotarska, COLCHESTER, September 2018

    • “Great little village, lovely countryside and a beautiful cottage.”

    Mr Whitman, EASTLEIGH, August 2018

    • “A wonderful stay in a very comfortable and well appointed cottage. Beautiful village with a very friendly (and dog friendly) pub 50 yards away.”

    Mrs Williams, Chester, August 2018

    • “The cottage was lovely, very comfortable and well furnished with a lovely private garden. It was also very well equipped; from cool bags, ice packs in the freezer, a cupboard full of board games and DVD’s to all the kitchen utensils and equipment you could need. The negatives were - the hot water was scolding hot, we had to supervise our 3 yr old every time she washed her hands. The fan on the oven does not always come on when you turn on the oven, had to switch it on and off to get it to work. Also the small parking spot is tricky to manoeuvre into.”

    Mr Hopkins, SWINDON, August 2018

    • “Having stayed in about a dozen Helpful Holiday cottages over the years, this one ranks as probably the best. It has the feel of a home rather than a holiday let, is beautifully furnished with quality fittings and every gadget you could possibly require. The west facing terrace, overlooking the unspoilt Dorset countryside makes an evening watching the sunset accompanied by a BBQ and a glass of fine wine, a delight. Very comfortable bedrooms and high quality bathrooms make for the perfect cottage. In short, I couldn't recommend this property more highly and will surely rebook at some point in the future”

    Mr Hancock, Hove, June 2018
