Probably the nicest place we have rented for a short holiday in England.. Loved the conservatory and outside seating and the visits from the bantam hens. Very well equipped cottage with a like-new kitchen (check out all of the photos). We appreciated the comfy beds and welcoming chocs and home made Victoria sponge, etc. We’d hope to stay here again if we revisit this area. Lovely quiet surroundings. Useful Spar shop just a few hundred metres past the nearby pub. The Wednesday Fish and Chip van was very good too!

The perfect place to be South Lodge is wonderful.. It's not very usual to arrive to the cottage you have rented and find out that it's much better than what you thought and that you don't want to leave at all. Everything you may need. Romantic and lovely. The place is so beautiful. And the hosts are absolutely great and respectful of your privacy. Such a great experience. I would recommend it to anyone.

We were extremely comfortable in this cottage, after flying from Australia it was so nice to be able to relax and enjoy our holiday, Linda and Mark were very helpful but not intrusive.. We would certainly recommend this cottage (already have) and would book it again if in the area in the future. Having the fire was lovely and everything was very high quality, the area was beautiful. Will definitely use Sykes in the future.

As soon as I stepped into the front door of South Lodge I felt at home.. It was beautifully decorated and so tastefully furnished. A lovely welcome of gifts including eggs which had been laid by the chickens. And the chickens did visit everyday. A lovely conservatory and garden to sit out in. Nice walks near-by and on a Thursday night its not too far to walk to the Village Hall for delicious Fish and Chips from the van that parks in the car park. A good base to travel around Dorset. Nice friendly pub and village store near-by. I can not forget to mention Linda and Mark, the owners who live next door. They did visit us to make sure we had settled in for our wonderful weeks holiday. I would definitely come back again and again.

My son ( over from Tasmania ) and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in South lodge .. It was extremely well equipped and in an excellent location for the local attractions. My neighbours are considering coming to Dorset so I will recommend this property to them. Norman Thompson . Skipton.

On opening the front door, it was a case of 'WOW', greeting us was a spotlessly clean, beautifully furnished, well laid out, & equipped to the highest standard property.. The owners had carefully thought about & provided everything needed to make our stay thoroughly enjoyable, comfortable & peaceful. High quality fixtures & fittings throughout, a generous welcome pack incl. eggs from their chickens, plenty of interesting books, magazines & games incl. a Nintendo Wii, comprehensive detailed information on all aspects of our stay, local area information. Even down to the names of their individual chickens, which the owner was kind enough to introduce to my daughter. In my humble opinion, the benchmark for a holiday cottage. Thank you Mark & Linda. Highly recommended.

The attention to detail at this property was second to none.. From the comfort of the bed to the range of kitchen equipment and utensils, not to mention the lovely garden/patio area, we couldn't fault this place. It made our stay a memorable one.

South lodge has everything a family needs.. From the moment we stepped inside we were totally relaxed. The wii kept us entertained in the evenings and the log burner made a romantic setting. It’s well situated within the Dorset countryside. Everyone in the area are friendly and helpful. We can’t wait to go back.

Might be a bit crowded for four people.. Lovely conservatory and secluded outside table and chairs. The free ranging bantams were a delight!

If you want a restful holiday, then South Lodge is for you.. The cottage is lovely with everything you need and more. We arrived on the Friday and on Saturday and Sunday we had snow 4inches, but we were fine as we had everything we needed. Lovely wood stove very modern , a beautiful kitchen and a cosy lounge. And on the Monday we came back to the cottage after a day out , and sat in the beautiful sun room looking out onto the lovely garden, the warmth of the sun was wonderful. What a lovely find, we will go back again.Tony and Jan.

This property was everything we wanted it to be, and more.. It has been created and finished to a very high standard, to ensure a comfortable and luxurious stay. The garden view is beautiful, peaceful and rural, with both outside and inside seating facilities from the patio furniture or conservatory - depending on the weather. Inside, the décor is simply lovely, with very comfortable furnishings and beds, and good quality bedlinen. The extra upstairs washing/toilet facility was a real plus for us. The log fire worked very well indeed, and was easy to light and look after. We particularly enjoyed the peaceful location, yet within reasonable car journeys to a host of lovely towns and locations, such as Sherborne, Kingston Lacy, Blandford Forum and Weymouth. One certainly needs a car. The owners of the property live next door, and are very helpful and kind - providing a welcome pack of biscuits, tea, milk and so on. There is a shop in the village for other necessities, and we also used Sturminster Newton 5 miles away, for shopping and cafes. The TV worked well, including BBC iplayer and so on which was always reliable. The wifi also worked very well. We weren't able to get a mobile phone signal for making or receiving calls from the house, but this wasn't a problem for us. All together a super cottage and we would love to return soon. This was one of the very best self-catering accommodation we have stayed in, out of tens of cottages!
