It's very good to know that you enjoyed your first-time stay in Dorset and in our cottage. Many thanks for taking the time to write a positive review for us and we'd love to welcome you again!
Perfectly located to explore Dorset
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Ilsington Lawn, very peaceful, relaxing and comfortable, the property had absolutely everything we needed. Although the cottage is attached to the main house the owners were not intrusive in any way, they very accommodating and on hand if we needed them.
Puddletown is perfectly located to explore Dorset, we took bikes and found lovely villages to explore, with great roads, hardly a pothole in sight! Found great walks taking in the Cerne Abbas Giant, Hardy’s monument, Maiden Castle and Colmer’s Hill near Symondsbury. Colmers Hill is great via Hell Lane - creepy or peaceful you decide!! Need walking shoes or boots. Watched the sun go down on Portland Bill (around 9.15pm in July) stunning. Ate out a few times - The Blue Vinney pub food not bad, we had good Sunday lunch there, Rick Steins in Sandbanks for birthday celebration lovely food and waiter service. Definitely would recommend to family and friends and anyone seeking a peaceful break, we hope to be back very soon.
We're so glad you enjoyed your stay and got to see such a variety of lovely places. We really appreciate your comprehensive review, which includes a lot of useful information about the local area. Many thanks and we hope to welcome you again sometime!
Great base for exploring Dorset
We booked the cottage as a couple for a relaxed break exploring Dorset. It was wonderfully well located and never seemed far from anywhere on our itinerary. In a week we spent time with our family in Weymouth and on the Jurassic Coast, as well as visiting Hardy’s Cottage, Kingston Lacey, Montacute, Portland Bill, and lovely places such as Milton Abbas and Sherborne. The highlight, however, was Athelhampton House, less than a mile away, one of the most attractive small medieval manor houses we’ve seen in England – and the tearoom does an amazing cream tea.
The cottage isn’t huge but has a dining room, kitchen, and living room with two small sofas so we could both put our feet up at the end of the day. Upstairs we could spread out over two bedrooms and there was always plenty of hot water for a bath or shower after a walk. We had a mix of weather and on a couple of chilly evenings we were glad of the excellent heating. Locally, the village is very pleasant and the shop friendly, with a good stock of items from pasta to fresh meat. One night we tried the lively Blue Vinny pub, a short walk down the lane, and enjoyed delicious wood pigeon and cheesecake. On a longer trip we also tried the River Cottage at Axminster, which was very good.
Overall, we felt the cottage was excellent value and Lauran was a friendly and helpful host, especially when I left behind a few items and she immediately offered to mail them on to me.
Thank you very much for writing a lovely review of your stay in our cottage. You certainly did and saw a lot in the week you were here! I'm very glad you appreciated our lovely county and all that it has to offer.
Look no further
If you are after a comfortable cottage is easy commuting distance across the whole of Dorset, look no further. After being shown round the cottage by Laural and Nick, we knew the cottage was ideal for our needs. It had every household item you could want and was extremely comfortable. As far as location is concerned, we wanted a quiet countryside setting and that is what we got. The cottage is in a very secluded position and gave us the escape we needed for our holiday.
As well as a quiet location, we wanted to be able to get to the south coast with ease. With the "A" roads within minutes of the cottage we were able to get to Weymouth in 20 minutes, Poole in 25 minutes and Bournemouth in 30 minutes. Had we been on the coast in any location, the travelling time to the other seaside resorts would have been much longer as you need to go past Puddletown to get to the other seaside resports.
In all we had a fantastic break at this cottage and spent little time travelling around Dorset - everything we needed from a isolated and comfortable cottage within easy commuting distance of the whole of Dorset.
As I said earlier. "Look no further".
We do appreciate your very positive and comprehensive review, thank you very much! I'm glad you appreciated our location - tucked away but just a few minutes' walk into the pretty village of Puddletown, and within easy reach by car of so many lovely places in Dorset, coast and countryside alike. Thank you again.
