Very enjoyable stay with lovely hosts
Perfect and met all our needs.
Thank you both for your review and all the best for your Nordic walking venture.
We look forward to seeing you again in the future.
With Kind regards
Sandie Derek and Tinker too.
Beautifully appointed property, in a peaceful setting with lovely countryside views.
We have just spent a week at the lovely Fuchsia Cottage, We were made to feel very welcome by Sandie and Derek who have a great knowledge of the area .Everywhere locally is so easy to get to, the villages and resorts are picturesque.We particularly enjoyed Arne (RSPB) Corfe Castle, Kimmeridge, Swanage, Wareham and Studland. With easy access to Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door nearby.
The accommodation was first class, spotlessly clean and everything we needed for our stay including a beautiful Dorset cream tea on our arrival.
It was so nice after a day out exploring to come back to a cosy space with everything to hand, enjoy sitting on the balcony admiring the view in the evening with a drink and reminiscing where we had been that day and to wake up the next morning to total peace and quiet and lovely countryside views. Thank you Sandie and Derek for your kind hospitality, and the company of Tinker the dog. We hope to return.
Thank you both for your valued review.
We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us and look forward to seeing you again in the future.

Compact Flat in area of outstanding beauty
Flat is modern and clean, well equiped for 2 people staying. Good parking place alongside road.
Interior well decorated . Bed comfortable, but 4'8''. Fridge with hardly working freezer.
Walking from the house : great, many paths to choose from. Also lovely cliff coast, forest and heaths to discover on 'the Isle of Purbeck'. Golf is superb on East Dorset and Isle of Purbeck golfcourses.
Restaurant : "New Inn", on 2 miles Church of Knowle village is excellent.
Idyllic stay in the Dorset countryside
Located in a small rural community in East Dorset. East Creech, provides the perfect location for exploring this part of the world without the crowds.
Ideally suited for couples the accommodation and facilities are perfect for either short or long stays. A friendly welcome and surprise Dorset scones with jam and cream got our stay off to a great start.
Having lived in the area for most of their lives Sandie and Derek were able to provide great advice for getting the most out of our week stay.
Thank you both for your review and we look forward to seeing you again in the future.

Great place for staying on the Isle of Purbeck. Close to everywhere! Comfortably furnished apartment
Warm welcome on arrival. The apartment has everything you need. Great place for nature lovers! Hope we’ll find the time to come back soon.
Thank you for your review.
We look forward to seeing you both again in the future.
Sandie and Derek provide excellent accomodation in the beautiful quiet valley of East Creech.
The three rooms provide everything two people need with the added pleasure of being able to sit out on the balcony and enjoy the beautiful view. We were warmly welcomed with many thoughtful additions provided including the cream tea on arrival. For us , who were based everyday in Kimmeridge Bay , we had a beautiful drive over the hill, but it is based close to many beautiful sites and walks if you wish to explore. You do need your own transport from the village. We hope to return and will recommend it highly to friends. Excellent to have a local host with a great knowledge of the local area.
Thank you both for your review and we hope to see you again in the future.
