I cannot rate these guys enough. I booked a week away at Pheasant Lodge with my girlfriend, and you can imagine what a welcome surprise it was to arrive to homemade scones, jam, clotted cream and sparkling cider!
The cottage was so cosy, just small enough to keep an intimate atmosphere with plenty of space for us to cut loose. The 13 acres of land around the place was a space to simply lose yourself in. Plenty of fire pits for evening drinks and barbecues, and we even took a basket out for an afternoon picnic in the sun.
There's plenty of good places to eat out, highly recommend Renoufs for a laid back evening of cheese, meat and wine, whilst The Lambs Green Inn at the end of the road is a perfect hub for classic pub grub. Also big shout outs for The Stables in Poole for their pizza and Rick Steins for high-class seafood.
All in all, it was a 10 out of 10 experience, huge shout outs to the owners who were always there with a smile and a helping hand when we needed them. I could easily go back for another week, kick back in the hot tub and just enjoy the wildlife if was so picturesque.
If you're wanting to find a country escape with a helpful slice of delicious local cuisine, stop looking elsewhere, you'll be hard pressed for a more perfect paradise.
