Great accommodation. Spacious and so usable. Amazing outdoor space. Excellently equipped kitchen. We had a lovely stay and would thoroughly recommend. No noise from adjacent MOD land. I was disappointed local walks were non-existent owing to the MOD land everywhere so a car was necessary to go anywhere.

A beautiful house that was well equipped with an amazing garden. Good sized bedrooms and very clean. Perfect set up for two families with kids - the kitchen/dining and living room were separate, so kids could play or watch TV in the living room while adults cooked and chatted. Great location. The selling point is definitely the garden. The en suiteRead more bathroom is perfect but found the shower in family bathroom was a little small for tall adults so all adults ended up using en suite.

Woodside is a lovely property close to many attraction of the Isle of Purbeck and the rest of Dorset. Its beautiful large garden is great if you have children or pets. However, it is right next door to the Lulworth firing range and the week we were there it was pretty constant tank and machine gun fire. I would check the range operation times beforRead moree you go and consider it carefully if you have a nervous pet (our small dog was terrified). It did not completely ruin our stay though. Hide
