  • “The cottage was not as clean as I would like.”

    Basins in both bathrooms appeared to have had a cursory clean however dirt and debris behind taps. Shower had dust/sand in the bottom and around the outside ledge. Skirting boards in shower room were also very dusty. ...

    Basins in both bathrooms appeared to have had a cursory clean however dirt and debris behind taps. Shower had dust/sand in the bottom and around the outside ledge. Skirting boards in shower room were also very dusty. The sofas in the lounge were dreadfully uncomfortable, sagging and no support whatsoever. However we did report this and Sykes’s made the owner aware. She came to see for herself and was very apologetic but obviously was unable to provide replacements whilst we were there which we understood. We have stayed at Hedge End cottages previously but felt that they are now a little tired and in need of refurbishment. Definitely not worthy of a 5 ✔️ rating. On the plus side we did feel that both Sykes and the owner had taken our complaints seriously. Also a nice comfy bed. The cottage is surrounded by lovely countryside and is in easy reach of lots of coastal resorts and beautiful villages.

Just 3 miles away is the pretty village of Milton Abbas, with its beautiful Benedictine abbey and exquisite, whitewashed, thatched cottages, often featured on Dorset picture postcards. Tour the striking Georgian architecture, visit the fascinating Fashion Museum, or sample real ale at the local brewery at nearby Blandford Forum.
