“Lovely cottage in a lovely friendly village with a great pub.”
Reviewed 26 May 2018 for a stay in May 2018

The old school in West Knighton, Dorset is a wonderful old cottage, comfortable, with lots of character and central in the village. The village itself is lovely olde world and very friendly, with a great pub a very short stroll away. It is also set in a location that is very convenient for visiting local attractions, with a bus service on the doorstep (literally) should one wish to try travelling that way. We did and found it made a pleasant change to driving the car. Thank you very much to the lady looking after the old school for trying so hard to find the missing diary.

“Perfect location in friendly very village”
Reviewed 25 May 2018 for a stay in May 2018

Loved the location of this charming cottage in a small, very friendly village.
On arrival we found that we couldn't fit two large cars on the off street parking but the charming man who lived opposite invited us to use his drive, which was absolutely fantastic. He then invited us to join him and some locals at the pub as we had arrived in time for their 'First Saturday' meet up, again, that was super as we found out a bit about the local area and where to go for lazy walks across country.
This beautiful cottage is full of charactor, with a lovely welcome pack awaiting us. There is very little you would need and not find in the well equiped kitchen which is laid out as a lovely bright and airy social area.
The lounge is huge and comfortable with throws ao the back of the settees for if there is a nip in the air but not enough to warrent a fire being put on and has a variety of books for visitors to read and enjoy.
We only used the two main upstairs bedrooms which were nicely furnished. The only negative for us would be the comfort of the mattresses in the superking bedroom. Great on size but the mattresses were a little on the light side, where the master bedroom comfort was absolutely assured.
Our only othere negative was that though there were enough towels, and they were certainly large enough for the most cuddlesom people around and so very, very soft and fluffy, there wasn't a towel in the downstairs toilet, which would have been nice.
To the back of the cottage is a nice smallish yard which is totally private and large enough for six to sit around the garden table. My husband and I sat there for parts of each day and evening, but the favourite place for mum and me to sit during the sunny afternoons was outside the front door, where virtually everyone who passed, whether driving, cyclingor walking, either waved or stopped for a chat.
Would we go back again?
Absolutely we would, 100% charmed by the cottage and the folk in the village.
