The house is beautiful and much bigger than we had expected! The entire house was next to spotless and we often found ourselves in shock at how amazing the place was! The kitchen was extremely well-equipped with everything we could need for 10 people to cook a meal (and more!). …

Response from Saskia:
Thanks for your lovely review about the house and Shaftesbury. Huge apologies about the hot water not lasting long enough, we just had a new water pressure booster put in shortly before your stay and the pressure is higher than the last one, we have adjusted it now so hopefully this will resolve the water issue. I will also make sure I set the hot water to be on 24 hours as it was only set for daytime heating up so that may have added to the issue. And yes I will make a point of telling people about the taxi situation here and give out a few numbers for people to try in advance. Thanks for this feedback, hopefully this will help people avoid a dark walk home!

Great house & location with a welcoming feel. The setting is lovely with views across the Dorset countryside and easy access to Shaftesbury. The house is spacious & well equipped, and the trampoline, pool table and numerous games kept us all amused throughout our stay.
