Mr Gamble, October 2020

The cottage was very clean and our host were very welcoming and friendly.. The cottage was in the country and very quiet at night. There were footpaths on our doorstep and others around the area, which we enjoyed walking and exploring. We like cycling and cycle route 26 passes by the cottage which we took advantage of. It was a very relaxing time.

Overall we found the Old School House comfortable and the owner was friendly and welcoming.. We did however find the noise from the very busy road right in front of the cottage disturbing. There are no amenities close by and it is very isolated.

Good location for our needs.. Easy to get to other parts of Dorset.
Mr Harvey
September 2016
Bedroom downstairs and lorrys whizzed past directly outside also found it risky when leaving the property as you emerged between two stone buildings.. The farm does not have livestock anymore so there was no noise from farm itself. Only took about 30 minutes by car to the coast or local places of interest . Cottage was well equipped and clean.

Our host, Mrs Ridout could not have done any more to make our holiday a success.. She even had one of the farm lads pump up our car tyre that was looking a bit low. The cottage was well equipped and spotlessly clean, and very comfortable.

A really delightful cottage set in the heart of rural Dorset. It is an ideal base to visit the many attractions Dorset has to offer. We were made very welcome and would certainly visit again in the future.
