Thank you for an amazing stay, our only regret is we didn’t stay longer! The cottage is perfect in everyway, your welcome pack was much appreciated. It was ideal for us catching up with friends and family and we finally took a visit to ‘Clouds Hill’ and also a lovely meal at The Thimble with friends. Our bike also appreciated it’s accommodation, thank you! 5th March 2019Kim and Les , Brittany France
The beautiful Teals den was the perfect home for our short break away here in Dorchester. We were overwhelmed by the beautiful décor and attention to detail. The welcome package was also very well received! Accompanied with the luscious rural area. Teals den made the perfect base for our stay. We look forward to returning in the future. 23rd AprilAlex and Kyle Kidderminster

Lovely cottage, you have thought of everything, such a high standard. Perfect combination of relaxing week away. Great location, great weather, great welcome pack, biscuits were yummy. 22nd JulyAngela and Simon
Absolutely loved our holidays at the granary. Beautiful house, spotlessly clean, well kitted out and a lovely welcome basket. In the middle of no where (which we loved, great walks) but an easy drive to Dorchester or Weymouth for the beach. I hope we get to visit again.Jennie
Clean, comfortable and as described. All the equipment was in good working order. We appreciated the welcome tray , along with the wine, cakes soaps etc. The accommodation was spacious and the beds were comfortable. We loved the peaceful, quiet countryside. The Granary was perfect for a three generation holiday with ages ranging from 13 months to 77.Penny

Loved our stay at the Granary. The property and the enclosed garden were ideal for our two terriers. The property owners were very friendly and helpful (the fresh eggs were delicious). The area was very peaceful - it was lovely to stand in the garden at night to watch bats flying past and hear tawny owls calling.Ms D Branch
Lovely hosts - it was a pleasure to meet with them and enjoy their wonderful property - stayed July 2017.Mr N Smith
We had a lovely stay at The Granary. The property provided us with excellent facilities to enjoy the Dorset countryside. The paddock was a real bonus for an early morning walk for the dogs and the garden was large enough and safe for them. It was also very handy to have the shower room and ensuite bathroom. I would certainly have no hesitation in returning to this property and would recommend this property to friends with dogs who are looking for a nice break - stayed June 2017.Mr P Smith
Fantastic will definitely be returning!!! Stayed May 2017.Miss S Draycott
