The cottage was even better than advertised with a lovely garden and superb views. This was a family reunion with two couples from the USA and one from the UK. Space and facilities were just right. Planning to return soon to continue renewing our family memories of this beautiful area. Overall Rating: 5 Stars

We enjoyed a fabulous week at Seaview Cottage - 3 generations of family followed by friends. The owners have renovated the cottage to a very high standard and it felt like a real 'home from home'. The views from the cottage and surrounding location were superb. We would gladly return. Overall Rating: 5 Stars

This cottage is ideally situated. We could walk from the house to the pub, to the village and hills. The kitchen is very well supplied with utensils. Friendly local people. We have been visiting this area for 50+. years, and love visiting all the old haunts. We will be back. Overall Rating: 4 Stars

A very comfortable and well appointed cottage in a beautiful location - a great base for a busy family holiday. We'll definitely be recommending Seaview Cottage. Thank you. p.s. The Farmhouse fruit cake from Corfe Castle Bakery was a fabulous welcome gift - we've since bought a further eight!!!
