“Little bit of luxury”

Reviewed 7 Jan 2014

As soon as we arrived it felt as if we had come home. The welcome pack and doggy treats were a lovely touch. The owners were easily accessible but unobtrusive. Top marks for luxurious bathroom products and what a bathroom!! Location is ideal for exploring the area, there are some lovely local walks, well signposted. Hop on the train to go farther afield and no parking issues. Sherborne is quaint with some lovely shops and cafés. The castle grounds and cafe are well worth a look around on a nice day. Would be nice for the front garden to have been enclosed but other than that a 5 star holiday.

“Comfort to an exceptionally high standard”

Reviewed 8 Nov 2012

Beautiful little country style cottage, ideal for couples.The reception pack we received was excellent - the contents of which were of a very high standard, icluding two small bottles of wine, which were very welcome.The locally sourced biscuits were superb. The cottage itself was finished to a very high specification and extemely comfortable. As with the rest of the cottage,the bedroom and furniture were quite luxurious.Although a road runs right outside the cottage, there was hardly any traffic to make it feel noisy or uncomfortable. The outlook from the bedroom window was indeed very pleasant,overlooking the tree lined road. The small kitchen was adequate enough to enable decent meals to be cooked for two people (although, the local pub, only 5 minutes walk away, served lovely meals) The general feel of the accomodation was very relaxed and welcoming. The owners made us feel welcome from day one and were available if we needed any assistance. The village itself was extremely nice, and I would say was a typical Dorset village - beautiful properties in a beautiful county. The cottage is ideally situated to enable you to visit just about any other location in Dorset and beyond, without too much hassle.There are no motorways in Dorset, so getting to some of the beautiful villages entails driving along country roads,which have beautiful scenery. There are plenty of places to visit, includinge the typically English village of Cerne abass, with the legendary Cerne abbass giant carved into the hillside.Lovely walking country. The highlight for us was a visit to abbotsbury sub tropical gardens - absolutely fantastic. Also not too far away is the famous Chesil Beach, which again was beautiful. What we liked best was the fact we were made to feel very welcome, not only by the owners but also the locals. A very friendly lot - and the local pub served some very decent real ales - highly recommended. We have recommended this cottage to friends, and we will definitely be back

“Classy, cosy, charming, a place to revisit!”

Before we even got to Candy Cottage we received a lovely card giving us directions and welcoming us to our home for the week. When we arrived we were greeted by a heavenly scent, a bunch of roses, some yummy treats and fresh laid eggs. The cottage is small but not uncomfortably so and every corner has been utilised in an imaginative way. The decor and furnishings are tasteful and in keeping with the charm of the place. We recommend a visit to The Sculptures by the Lakes at Tincleton, you do need to book online and it's not the easiest place to find but absolutely breath taking. The cider farm at Dawlish Wake was excellent too. It's ideal for a quiet romantic break for two.

“Lovely little cottage”

Reviewed 2 May 2012

Excellent welcome, with good explanation of the facilities in the cottage. All decor and furnishings to a good standard and very comfortable. Staircase is a little steep, as warned, but all in all a lovely little hideaway at reasonable cost, with thoughtful little extras. Handy for most of Dorset and East Somerset. Quiet and relaxing to come back to, village pub had the builders in so was a bit squeezed but food and welcome good and they said they'd had the holidayers from this cottage just about every week since the cottage was first let.

“Our holiday was wonderfully comfortable, restful and peaceful.”

“Cosy comfort for two”

Reviewed 22 Sep 2011

Very friendly welcome and with the essentials waithing for you, tea, milk, biscuits, eggs and local honey. Very comfy, just right for two. Bathroom was amazing. Modern kitchen area but small. Pub nearby but unusual opening times. Local railway line if you don't want to drive everywhere. Lots of local walks. Very quiet, just what we wanted.
