Inside, the large kitchen, with breakfast bar, leads to a superb orangery with a huge solid oak banqueting table with additional seating area for dining and relaxing whilst taking in the picturesque views of the garden and neighbouring paddock. The orangery also benefits from French doors leading to the well maintained, lawned garden which has plenty of outdoor seating, in addition to a lawned area for badminton, soft tennis and other garden games.

    The Cottage was probably the best we have ever had, and we have been doing cottages for more than forty years sometimes two or three each year, I never met the owner but she was in touch before and during our holiday, concerned that we should have a good holiday, Could not be more positive about the Cottage excellent

    We had a super holiday at Wishing Well Cottage. We were there during the very hot weather and the garden proved to be a tranquil space to sit, especially under the apple tree. The house itself could not have been better equipped and with quality items. Never did we feel that we were not getting value for money. The Welcome goodies were plentiful and we used them all! Jen and Steve obviously wanted their 'guests' to enjoy themselves as well as respecting their beautiful home.

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for such a wonderful review. We are so pleased to hear you all had a lovely holiday and found everything at the house to meet your needs. Wishing Well Cottage certainly has some lovely, tranquil spaces to enjoy the Dorset countryside and we can think of no better place than under the Apple trees and in the shade on a hot day. We hope to see you again very soon.
