Excellent cottage. Perfectly placed to explore the coastal paths but close to amenities in Wool. We stayed with our 3 kids and bouncy Labrador in the Oct half term and had a fabulous time exploring the coves and paths between Lulworth and Weymouth. Nice welcome pack and thoughtful touch to leave dog bowls etc. Cosy, comfortable evenings at Tessas, Read morehighly recommend. Would definitely book again. Hide

A very pretty cottage externally, in a lovely location, very well placed. Pretty garden. Internally not as well finished as similar cottages in its price point.
