Welcome to our collection of five star self catering luxury Dorset cottages; four of which boast stunning locations on the UNESCO world heritage Jurassic Coast, close to the pretty village of Abbotsbury and one nestled in the picturesque village of Melbury Osmond, deep in Hardy's Wessex. All our cottages have WiFi, flat screen TVs, dishwashers, range cookers, American fridge/freezers, Tassimo machines, washing machines, tumble dryers, private off road parking, private gardens and very comfortable beds with high quality Egyptian cotton sheets and goose feather and down duvets and pillows. We also welcome dogs, by arrangement.
An absolutely fantastic cottage is a stunning location. We stayed in the midst of Storm Ciara so we just hunkered down and made the most of everything Furlongs has to offer. Very comfortable beds with top notch bedding, a superb kitchen and no less than three separate sitting/relaxing areas which makes it great for a little multi generational time out. The walk up to St Catherines is lovely and the view from there amazing. We didn't explore the village but it looked lovely with pubs and the essential village store. Would I recommend it? Yes (but only as long as it doesn't get fully booked so w...more
We took a midweek break here on a whim with a view to long walks with our dog. The cottage is spectacular and two of our three long walks were from the front door. The weather was kind to us but Dorset in December is pretty muddy so having an outside hose made cleaning up a lot easier.
I arranged a grocery delivery (not always possible in Dorset) so food was dead easy. The kitchen is very well equipped. I would also recommend the Anchor Inn in Burton Bradstock for an evening meal.
Finding the cottage for the first time in the dark could prove a challenge as postcode satnav lead us to a sh...more
This property has been on our radar for a short break for some time. Having previously stayed in a family group at two of the other barn conversions offered by Ilchester Estates our expectations of East View Barn were very high: we were not disappointed.
In my opinion, East View Barn - though some way from the coast compared with the Abbotsbury properties that we have stayed in previously - is vey much the perfect Dorset rental. Quite simply it “feels right” on all levels. On this occasion there were just the two of us plus our golden retriever dog, but the property would comfortably acco...more
We added an extra day to our week and loved the grain store. Sufficiently in the countryside but near enough to main roads for good connections. A lovely place to stay, very clean and comfortable. It had the Largest of the 3 gardens for our dog and there are plenty of walks nearby. Walk up the Hill to the ridge and the views are spectacular.
The large hamper was a lovely bonus.
I just wish it had that log burner to finish it off.
Can’t wait to come back again.
Very nice property and well equipped. Only drawback was that we had to have the heating on most of the time to keep the place warm. I don't think the heating was working that well when we were there end October - as the radiators did not seem to get that warm.
But this did not spoil a lovely week there although the owners may want to look at this.
