A get-away with a difference for Liz and her friend!

We’ve had an absolutely great time staying in Piddle (the Gypsy Caravan); a holiday with a difference, which we certainly won’t forget in a hurry. So much fun! The hospitality has been amazing, and we really enjoyed the wonderful BBQ you provided, with the gorgeous local produce. We look forward to coming back very soon.

A relaxing break away from the children for the Vickerys

We had a wonderful break in Cerne Cottage! Thank you so much. It was a real treat to be in such a relaxed, beautiful environment for a little ‘me’ time, away from the children.

Lancombe was the perfect setting to explore the local coastline, and to recharge our batteries.

A rather long and wonderful stay for Louise!

I am at last on-line in my new home and would like to tell you how much I enjoyed my long (five week) stay at Lancombe Cottages. I stayed in Lydden Cottage which sleeps three for the first two weeks and found it very clean, comfortable and equipped with everything we needed. Sam, my grandson who stayed for the first week loved the swimming pool and games room. My daughter then joined me for the second week and she loved the cottage & scenery. We were made to feel that our dogs were very welcome and we were grateful. I had meant to move on but was so happy and comfortable there, that Caroline offered me Cerne Cottage which sleeps four and I stayed on for a further three weeks. As an example of their hospitality, I mentioned that the curtains in the main bedroom of Cerne were very light causing me to wake up rather early in the morning and they immediately replaced them with blackout curtains. In fact, nothing was too much trouble for them. I enjoyed walking in the grounds and loved Marilyn & Robs dog Barnaby who in spite of his appearance has a lovely nature and is remarkably tolerant of all visitors and guest dogs. Dorchester town centre is only ten miles away with Weymouth a further eight miles. I loved the peace and quiet of the location and enjoyed coming home each day after exploring Dorset. I would certainly recommend these cottages and will be back soon.

Thank you Caroline, Geoff, Marilyn and Rob for a most pleasant stay.

A safe environment for The Thompson’s young family

We would just like to say that we absolutely loved our week in Wey Lodge! The lodge itself was fabulous and the picturesque and tranquil surroundings far exceeded our expectations.

Elliot loved his first holiday and it was reassuring for Suzie and I that we could let him play and explore in a safe environment. The same could also be said of Oscar, who again we knew was always safe when we left him to his own devices.

As well as being a great ‘base’ to go off to explore Dorset from, Higher Chilfrome is a really beautiful location and Suzie and I commented on our way home about how relaxed we felt after our week off. We will certainly be recommending you to our friends and family and fingers crossed we’ll get the opportunity to spend another week at Lancombe Lodges at some stage next year.

Thank you for making our stay so pleasant, the little touches like the biscuits on arrival (of which we have bought copious quantities!) as well as taking the time to have an occasional chat with us were really appreciated. Oscar loved running around with Barnaby too!

A peaceful family holiday for The Mellor’s

Just a quick note to say how much we enjoyed our short stay with you (in Broad Lodge), very peaceful and the girls loved the pool. Will be back in touch next time we need to unwind.

It was the special, personal touches for Lou and her young family

We stayed at Lancombe Country Cottages for 1 week with a toddler and a 10 month old. The cottage was brilliantly equipped to deal with this as it had all the safety accessories you need. The pool even had a baby seat for the water!

The gardens are lovely and child friendly. The whole atmosphere of Lancombe Country Cottges sets you at ease and young families are made to feel very welcome. Everyone is very friendly, especially Caroline. If we asked for something they did everything they could to help. We would highly recommend Lancombe Country Cottages to all families and couples.
