Welcome to our collection of five star self catering luxury Dorset cottages; four of which boast stunning locations on the UNESCO world heritage Jurassic Coast, close to the pretty village of Abbotsbury and one nestled in the picturesque village of Melbury Osmond, deep in Hardy's Wessex.

We also welcome dogs, by arrangement.
We expected luxury accommodation and were disappointed. The two huge settees are the most uncomfortable things to sit on as your legs can't reach the ground.

We all enjoyed staying at The Stables; plenty of room for all of us and a fantastic location with wonderful views! We had a great stay although a couple of niggles - this kitchen is only just kitted out for 8 and misses some of the extra touches you get when renting privately; the welcome pack was minimal and the cleaning was only adequate and not great (dead flies around the carpet in the lounge and some of the kitchen items were dirty).
However, we had a good time and would consider a further stay.
