Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Very homely! Great fire. Dec 2010.
  2. Beautiful cottage full of character. Huge and stunning garden. Close to attractions but located in small quiet village short walk to the sea. July 2010.
  3. Very nice cottage with a beautyfull garden. July 2010.
  4. This cottage felt like home. There were lots of board games and books for the kids, a fantastic open log fire to curl up in front of and a superb garden with treehouse, trampoline and access to the beach at Eype. Feb 2010.
  5. We have visited this property 3 times recently and consider it of the highest quality and very comfortable, unfortunately we had to cut short our visit this time as my wife was taken ill, however, we received prompt and excellent help from the Health Centre in Yetminster, which was most reassuring. Oct 2009.
  6. The cottage was absolutely delightful. As others have said, the pictures don’t do it justice and the cottage has been re-thatched since the site/brochure photos were taken. The garden was huge and much bigger than expected. There was ample parking. The location provided quick access to the beach and it was easy to get to the supermarket in Bridport. Sept 2009.
  7. Ducks Bottom cottage was extraordinarily beautiful! The trampoline was fantastic for kids and it was lovely to be able to walk through the lovely garden to the beach. May 2009.
  8. Useful having the granny flat as there were 3 generations holidaying together. The layout provided space to escape. Spaciousness of the cottage itself and the large beautiful garden. July 2009.
  9. We had a fantastic time. Weather, accommodation and location wonderful. Aug 2008.
  10. The cottage was lovely and the garden was beautiful. Whilst we saw how nice it looked in the brochure and on the website, I don’t think the grounds were done justice, they were simply fantastic. Aug 2008.
  11. Lovely cottage, beautiful large wild garden, a tree house to die for (and I am 70), half a mile from the sea in a beautiful county. Sept 2008.
  12. The photographs on your website do not do this property justice. We were more than pleased with the the standard and quality of the accommodation, which was better than we had anticipated. Aug 2007.
  13. This is a wonderful house, very well appointed and full of thoughtful extras, for example picnic rugs. Everything, furnishings, beds, kitchen ware etc was of top quality. The garden is perfect, the trampoline and tree house brought hours of pleasure to the children. It’s a great house for mixed generations. We, the grandparents, loved our summerhouse hideaway with its comfortable bed and ensuite. Aug 2007.
  14. Duck’s Bottom is a picture of an English Country Cottage. The property and in particular the gardens are outstanding. A great base to explore Dorset. June 2006.
  15. A fantastic garden which was not done justice by the photos on the website. April 2006.
