Cottage was very good, in a quiet location, with lovely views and easy access by car to Shaftesbury and other Dorset attractions. November weather was kind - sunny. Gold Hill, Shaftesbury (location of Hovis advert) is worth visiting with good eating places at the top and bottom of the hill! Also walked around Shear Water (towards Warminster) and had a fascinating visit to the Cafe at Compton abbass airfield - good value with a good view of light aircraft activity. Also went to Bath Christmas Fayre - very crowded and parking not easy.
Ryecross was a clean well;appointed and comfortable cottage with avery pleasant outlook over the Blackmoor Vale. We enjoyed our very much in the local area and beyond to the coast. It helped to have good weather, but the cottage was of such a standard that if we had to stay in all day it would have been equally enjoyable. The only minor complaint was the lack of a large frying pan. Instructions for the microwave would have been helpful.
Our break here was great. The cottage is well placed for access to a beautiful part of the country. Many excellent places to visit and great walks to be had. We saw some fantastic sunsets over the hills and valleys just sitting in the sitting room. The only slight reservation is that exiting the property onto a busy, narrow road with high hedges was a little nerve-racking, otherwise I would have given 5 stars.
