The property, location and setting was exactly perfect for my wife,myself and our small dog.
We loved the peaceful location. We were a bit further from amenities than we expected but we found the shortcut to the pub so were fine.
Whilst there is private parking, access is via a narrow road and an inclined compact driveway. This space is shared by holidaymakers staying at Little Blossoms, so parking is made easier if you have a small/medium sized vehicle. Possibly make reference to this in the brochure/online advertisement. Generally we had a really good stay, in a beautiful area of Dorset, and the weather was also fairly kind. The fresh milk, bread, cake and dog treat were a nice touch.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The chalet was as we expected. Beautifully quiet, with birds singing. The host introduced himself, and gave good advice etc. We had a lovely surprise of, bread, milk, and a Dorset apple cake, which was delicious. Even a biscuit bone for our dog, which we thought was a lovely gesture.The garden was lovely. Would certainly recommend it, and we hope to visit again in the future.
We have used Toad hall for several years now. We have always found that the four and five star accomodation that we book is has met(or even surpassed) our expectations.
Derek and Di were brilliant hosts: they were incredibly welcoming and gave us great information about the locality and the garden.., , and also cuttings and encouraged us to help ourselves to seeds! Thus going above and beyond the sort of help you might expect. This personal touch, and enthusiasm, was invaluable and made our frst wedding anniversary so extra special...Many many thanks, we hope to return.
Excellent service, at short notice, would choose toad hall cottages again ,
