The cleverly designed property has a spiral staircase which leads to a delightful bedroom with en-suite and balcony. And the open-plan living/dining room and fitted kitchen is complemented with french doors leading to seating outside.

Had lovely stay with great sunny weatherror making our coast path walking very enjoyable
Excellent hosts, fantastic views from cottage toward valley. Well located for visiting other places of interest. Outside area well maintained and useful for relaxing. Parking area ok for small car may be an issue for larger vehicles but there is other parking areas. We enjoyed our stay and Ed and Rose are the perfect hosts.
Kowhai Cottage is a real gem. The views over the valley are outstanding. The cottage is very comfortable and cosy with excellent standard of furnishings and fittings. The spiral staircase was not a problem and in fact is a feature. Is was great to have sitting out areas especially on the balcony off the bedroom which was a real suntrap. we throughly enjoyed our stay and the owners couldn't have been more helpful with suggestions of places to explore and visit.
Fabulous place Gorgeous views and very private , well situated for both dorset and Devon and the owners were very nice and helpful. A little gem
We had a lovely week in this unique cottage where the friendly owners were on hand with help and advice whenever it was needed. The cottage was spotless and well equipped, and being located close to the Jurassic Coast there was always plenty to do. The view from the garden is outstanding and we enjoyed our mornings sitting on the balcony. Highly recommended!
We were met with a warm welcome from the owners of the cottage and they were on hand if we needed anything which was good. The cottage itself was very nice and clean and had everything you needed. It was very comfortable and in a very good area which was close to lots of lovley places to go.
Had a wonderful weeks holiday at this cottage and would recommend it to others. The owners were very friendly and gave information about the cottage and area which was a help. The view from the balcony was excellent and you could watch the deer in the fields in front. It is only a few minutes from the coast and other amenities.
We had a fantastic stay at Kowhai. Ed and Rose were great hosts. Very helpful and approachable. The cottage is done out to a lovely standard and is a great base for exploring the jurassic coast. It had everything we needed. The views from the cottage are fantastic. We would definitely recommend staying here.
