A beautiful cottage where we spent a very special “alternative” Christmas. We loved the decorated real Christmas tree (thank you), cozy log fire and the best welcome hamper we have ever had! We did a fair amount of walking in this lovely area and enjoyed everything about this beautiful cottage. Thank you.

What a beautifully clean, well equipped, cosy cottage! Cannot think of a single fault. Really enjoyed the beaches at Lulworth and Studland, Corfe Castle and Monkey World. Good pub food and warm welcome at The Black Bear in Wool and Seven Stars at Moreton. Thank-you!

The M Family, Yorkshire

We had a lovely stay in the cottage. We are a family of five, with three nearly grown teenagers, with three single beds this fits our family size perfect. The cottage was fitted with everything we needed, a well equipped kitchen, modern bathrooms and perfectly clean and cosy. The welcome hamper was a unexpected surprise and gave a good start to our first morning. The next time we book a tip to the UK we will be looking for a Rural Retreats cottage. This was outstanding.
