We had a very good, romantic stay in Belview Cottage. It is a very excellent, lovely, enjoyable, good furnished cottage.
Belview is positioned on an elevated site within the gated grounds of its ownerâs property and is located on the outskirts of the very quiet and friendly feeling hamlet of Fifehead Neville. It has open views of the surrounding countryside from its dormer bedroom windows on either side of the property and enjoys the best of rural tranquillity (other than the odd farm animal or trotting horse) coupled with every modern convenience afforded by this clean and exceptionally equipped cottage. The thriving town of Sturminster Newton is a reasonably short drive away and all the main Dorset tourist attractions can be visited within a days trip. The owners are very friendly and personable without being intrusive and will always be on hand should you have any problems or concerns. Considering the quality and location of this modern cottage I would consider the virtually all inclusive leasing rates very reasonable. I would thoroughly recommend this accommodation for any time of year.
Lovely accommodation with all that we could need. Bit out of the way - everywhere was a drive away - but quiet and relaxed. Only reason it got four not five stars overall was the lack of space for the children to play outside - a tiny bit of fenced off garden within the owner's land, not really big enough for my seven-yr-old! Sat nav proved invaluable for the tiny Dorset lanes in the area.
Brian and Gillian Puddy who run Belview Cottage have thought of everything to give their guests a home from home in an idyllic country setting. The property is secure and secluded within the garden of the Puddy's family home. We stayed with our 19 month old daughter and 10 year old german shepherd cross and everything, from the blackout blinds in the bedrooms to the dog water bowl and outside tap in the cottage's private garden helped us to live our daily routine with ease! The kitchen is excellently well equipped, the cottage is finished to a superbly high standard and Fifehead Neville is surrounded by stunning walks and easy access by car to some of the most beautiful towns and villages in Dorset and the breathtaking Jurassic coast. We were made to feel very welcome and there was tea, coffee and biscuits and a pint of milk in the fridge on arrival which was hugely appreciated after a 4 hour drive! The Puddy's have done a great job in providing a luxury holiday cottage at a very reasonable price. I have no doubt that we, as I am sure have many other previous guests, will be making a return visit.
Extremely well appointed property with great attention to detail and a very high standard of cleanliness. Having a young child we found the blackout blinds in the bedrooms and the stair gate particularly useful. The private garden/patio area gave a safe area for our son to play and ourselves to relax after the days trips. Ideal location to explore Dorsets coastline and interior.
This property is set in the owners enclosed grounds, situated off the beaten track in a the small village of Fifehead Neville. Upon arrival there is always that feeling of apprehension "will it be a good standard". That feeling soon melted away - spotlessly clean and well equipped. It was great that we could bring our working cocker spaniel. Molly. We particularly like the fact that no animals are allowed upstairs, this ensures carpets etc are perfectly clean. The location is great but slightly isolated, this is not a problem however would of been nice to be within walking distance of a local shop (minor point). There are plenty of walks with stunning views. We loved the market town of Blandford Forum, also slightly further afield Winbourne with its market on Friday. Although the weather wasn't good the cottage made up for it. We booked through Sykes Cottages however the Owners Brian & Gillian Puddy inform us that they will not be using Sykes in future therefore booking are now made direct: http://belviewcottagedorset.co.uk We will return!
