A lovely old house in beautiful countryside. We saw deer, rabbits and pheasants in the garden and in the adjacent fields. Because of its age beware the different floor levels.
Bob And Sue User Profile
Response from Bob And Sue:
It's very thoughtful of Marjorie to point out the difference in floor levels in the house. There are indeed single steps from between some rooms both upstairs and downstairs, not to mention a couple of low beams. You do need to take note of these features on first arrival, but of course they add to the character and distinctiveness of the house.

A lovely cottage in a quiet rural setting but with good access to nearby Wimborne and good connections to wider attractions in Dorset and the New Forest. Superb garden with different sections and aspects to it as well as good provision of outside space to spend time sitting and …

Our week at Bob and Sue's cottage was like a big, warm hug. I can't speak highly enough of this lovely thatched property. It's even more appealing than it looks in the pictures and my daughters and I were convinced we were in a bigger and better version of the cottage featured in…

Response from Bob And Sue:
Thank you Sam for taking the time a review, and such a generous and sincere one. We too felt a big, warm hug when we read it! Needless to say, you would be more than welcome to return to the cottage any time we're not there ourselves - we know we would be leaving it in the hands of thoughtful, caring and truly appreciative guests. What could be better than that?
