“Pleasant Cottage is so much more than its name suggests”
Reviewed 19 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Perfect location for a mid-way meeting point between Kent and Cornwall for a long weekend catch-up with son and girlfriend. Peaceful village location, walking distance to village pub (dogs welcome) and ideally situated for visting Weymouth, Lyme Regis, Lulworth Cove, Dorchester to name a few local highlights. We were enchanted by the local scenery, the abundance of thatched cottages and the beatiful coastline.
We were also thrilled by the kindnes of the owners to ensure a warm welcome by the provision of supplies for tea, coffee and a fantastic homemade cake on arrival. Fresh eggs for breakfast too. Such a treat.

“A truly pleasant cottage”
Reviewed 9 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We visited this cottage with our children. It was well equipped and comfortable and there was plenty of room for the five of us. The cottage was clean and there were useful extras such as story books. There is a playground close by.

Finding a Victoria sandwich cake, eggs and milk had been left for our arrival was a bonus.

The cottage is convenient for local attractions and the lack of light pollution is great for night walks.

“A very relaxiing stay”
Reviewed 8 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

I would definitely recommend Pleasant Cottage. It is very comfortable and well maintained. Despite visiting in October/November it was cosy and warm. The local area is beautiful and it is a great base from which to explore Dorset.

The cottage is well laid out and it is great to have free wi-fi. On our arrival we were greeted with fresh flowers, cake, milk and local eggs. There is also a detailed guide with local restaurants and day trips.

We booked through Syke's cottages who were very efficient and helpful. They quickly checked any queries for us with the owner. The owner was very accommodating and even let us bring our two house cats with us for the trip!

“Pleasant sums it up”
Reviewed 23 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

This is a very nice Cottage, its clean, spacious, and the children had hours of fun with the reclining sofas. It is situated in Corscombe which is nestled in the Dorset countryside, the village has a little play park just up the road from the Cottage but no Village shop. However Beauminster is only a short drive away and Crewkerne is not too far either so there are options. The house has most things although 3 small saucepans when your cooking for 5 people wasn't quite enough. The garden is only the small bit at the front as at the rear of the house it has been paved over which was a slight disappointment. There is also the possibility of having an open fire in the living room which for us is a bonus, and to be greeted by a note along with tea coffee and home made cake was a very nice gesture.
