    “Although the 2 small bedrooms were shown by photograph in the brochure that did not prepare us for just how tiny they were.”

    Is it not pushing it a bit to describe them as double bedrooms except perhaps for 2 children in each. Apart from the bed being just about impossible to get in and out on the low-ceiling side, there is inadequate wardrobe space or elbow-room in general for more than one person per room ...

    Is it not pushing it a bit to describe them as double bedrooms except perhaps for 2 children in each. Apart from the bed being just about impossible to get in and out on the low-ceiling side, there is inadequate wardrobe space or elbow-room in general for more than one person per room The bathroom likewise is very tight, the minimal-sized shower cubicle might prove impossible for anyone even a bit overweight or of restricted mobility. Luckily there were not 6 of us and it was not too unsociable for one couple to have separate rooms.You should be prepared for more adverse comments through this year ? Otherwise the place was well decorated, well equipped, clean and comfortable, and in a lovely position i.e.excellent

About the location

TOLPUDDLE

Dorchester 8 miles.

The delightful village of Tolpuddle lies deep in the heart of Hardy country, just 8 miles from the bustling market town of Dorchester. Full of character, this village offers a tasteful combination of modern and thatched properties, surrounded by glorious countryside. The lush meadows, watered by the quaintly named 'River Piddle', and the nearby chalk downland provide lovely rural walks. This tranquil village is probably best known for its six famous Martyrs who held the first Trade Union meeting in 1831, and the local museum tells their story. There are plenty of other local attractions including Lawrence of Arabia's cottage, Athelhampton House, The Tank Museum and Monkey World, all of which are well worth a visit. With the delightful towns of Dorchester, Poole and Bournemouth, and the stunning Jurassic Coast also easily accessible, this is an ideal base for a varied holiday.
