October – Old Causeway Bakery Cottage

28th October 2017.

A full week!  This is at least our fourth stay and already looking forward to our next one.

We love coming back here to such a warm welcome and amazing cottage.  Ruby & Rolo have great fun and amazing walks and we can truly relax in such a great home from home.

Thank you again and already counting down to next year.

An enchanting environment – very relaxed and friendly.  It’s perfect for exploring a lovely area of England which is very close to my heart.

Our 2 dogs were welcomed and loved it all as much as my son and I did.  Would definitely love to come back.

Henry and Janet and Tilly & Millie the two dogs.

Martin & Alison, Sutton Coldfield.

18th – 25th October – Old Causeway Bakery Cottage – Self Catering – 7 night stay

What a wonderful find, we have had a super week even the weather was mostly kind!  Unfortunately unable to walk as much as hoped due to a rather lame Springer Spaniel but will definitely return when she’s recovered, so central for everything.   How thoughtful to recommend eateries and pubs, wish all cottages we’ve stayed in went to so much trouble, can’t praise the White Hart enough.

As for the cottage what can one say, absolutely first class.  That bed just holds onto you for hours, best sleeps, just what we needed to completely chill out and the Jacuzzi is icing on the cake, just don’t expect to be able to do anything for hours after you’ve been in it!!

So lovely also to be so dog friendly, we holiday a lot with our dog to all different areas of the country and always book dog friendly but they normally come with a list of do’s and don’ts & an extra charge.  I only hope that when we wish to return it is available ‘cos  once found I’m sure all will return if poss.

Many thanks again, Deb & Chris and Lola the Springer Spaniel, East Sussex

Our first time really exploring Dorset and what a wonderful experience it has been.  Everything was perfect; weather, accommodation; hosts & dogs!!  Loved Henry’s visits (the resident labrador) and Bertie came visiting on the odd occasion too, (the resident working cocker spaniel).  Can’t thank Sandra & Simon enough for your warm welcome; (fabulous arrival pack – thank you); hospitality and knowledge of Dorset, things to do – places to see. The Cottage is so comfortable and the views to die for.  Will remember our patio drinks/dinners for a very long time.  Sad to leave this beautiful place, and would really love to return.

27th August – The Cottage – 3 night short break

What a relaxing place.  We had to force ourselves out every day.  We could have quite easily have stayed in the cottage.  The dogs also enjoyed their stay.  Our Cavalier King Charles Maggie was not so keen on Henry’s intentions!!! but the dogs were made as welcome as we were.  An excellent base to visit beautiful Dorset.  Of course I am biased as I was born and bred here, but there is plenty to see and do in Dorset if you can drag yourselves out of this beautiful cottage where every last details has been lovingly thought about.

Sandra and Simon seen to appear “as if by magic” when you need to ask them something .

This was our 1st holiday with our 1st dog, Benji, (9 months old) to this part of Dorset & we could not have found (on the Good Dog Guide website) a more perfect cottage at The Old Bakery, in such a beautiful location.
Thank you Sandra & Simon for all the attention to detail the cottage has, it is comfortable, cosy & homely, particularly the lovely bed & Jacuzzi bath. It has everything we could have wished for & you made us feel so welcome. Thank you also for all your wealth of knowledge on walks, places to eat & visit. Benji has had a wonderful time with Henry & Bertie & all the visiting dogs.
We are both going home relaxd & rested from a much needed holiday & we will be sure to recommend this lovely place to family & friends & hopefully return ourselves soon.

Three delightful days of pampered comfort in the ‘wilds’ of Dorset. Thank you for your kindness and hospitality and also for the excellent advice on good pubs to dine at. Next time we are in Dorset we will know where to say. Highly recommended!!
