Property Feedback

Candy Cottage is a lovely little cottage which has been nicely refurbished. The owners have gone to a lot of trouble to make holiday makers feel welcome with their little luxuries. It's situated in a quiet little village with a very nice pub in walking distance which was a bonus !

,The owners have really thought of everything. A lovely cottage in a small, friendly village. The Kings Arms pub, just 5 minutes walk up the road is great too. Good centre to explore the lovely Dorset/Somerset villages and countryside.

,The owners made us very welcome and there were lots of unexpected extras. So much thought has gone into this property and it shows. We felt very comfortable and relaxed. Wish we could have stayed longer!

,Close proximity to Sherborne for all the convenience of a larger town but Thornford had a great pub serving great food and a lovely village shop. There were reasonably good transport links if you didn't have a car. Good base for exploring Dorset and Somerset. There was also a brilliant welcome pack to get us going. We would recommend this cottage to anyone we know, without hesitation!

,The bathroom was a dream to use, and spotlessly clean. Loved the bedroom and had more than ample space for all my things. Didn't want to leave.

,The village location was excellent with the shop and pub within walking distance. A very friendly village with good dog walking facilities. A good location for exploring both Dorset and Somerset.
