Der Wohnraum

This cottage is the UK home of travel writer and author Stanley Stewart -- (website hidden). It is a cosy and charming home with tasteful furnishings and decor from around the world as well as an extensive library. French windows lead from the large kitchen to the garden which is small, a little wild, but much loved. There are beautiful views from the end of the garden southwards towards the Dorset Downs. There is also a small book lined library, a comfortable living room, a bedroom with two single beds and a guest loo on the ground floor. Upstairs is a large landing with a divan or day bed, a double bedroom and a large family bathroom with a bath, a bidet and a shower. The house stands on a quiet road on the edge of an even quieter village. There are plenty of walks from the front door.

Zugang für Gäste

Guests will have the house and garden and one parking space to themselves. One room - the study - will be locked and off bounds as it will contain personal items of the owner.

Interaktion mit Gästen

There will be no-one else on the premises. The house will be cleaned before guests arrival and is not normally cleaned during a stay unless clients request it for longer stays.

Weitere wichtige Infos

This is a fabulous house with character and the feeling of a real home, not a rather sterile rental property. It takes 4 guests in 2 bedrooms but could easily accomodate a 5th guest on an excellent bed in a spacious landing area.

Nous avons passé deux semaines dans le cottage de Stanley, avec nos deux fils adolescents. Nous n'avons jamais rencontré le propriétaire, mais la communication avec lui à toujours été rapide et agréable, que ce soit pour la location ou pendant le séjour. Le logement en soi possède un charme et un confort vraiment particuliers, une quantité impressionante de livres, et est assez spacieux pour permettre à chacun de s'isoler. Il est extrêmement calme, la cuisine et les salles d'eau sont parfaitement fonctionnelles. En outre il possède un jardin qui permet d'admirer la campagne environnante. Le propriétaire met à disposition une foule d'informations locales et de guides. Ce logement est parfaitement situé pour visiter le Dorset, ainsi que Bath et la Jurassic Coast, mais on peut aussi se promener ou courir dans les environs immédiats. On trouve plusieurs commerces et pubs/restaurants à env. 15 mn. Nous ne pouvons que recommander ce logement, et y retournerons avec grand plaisir.

Stanley's cottage is an absolute delight - there is so much space and light, but also warm and cosy nooks and crannies to curl up in. It's just perfect, the photos really do not do this place justice! My two friends and I enjoyed curling up by the log fire, drinking cups of tea overlooking the Dorset Downs from the bench in the back garden (head through the side gate!) and perusing the many books around the house. The surrounding village is a also beautiful, as is the walk across the fields to nearby Stour Provost suggested by Stanley in his guide. The only downside to our trip was the fact we had to leave - I wish we could have doubled our stay! A real home-away-from home treat, made even better by Stanley's great hosting - communication was excellent and very helpful. Thank you, Stanley!

This really is a gorgeous cottage in a beautiful part of the North Dorset countryside. The information pack supplied by our host was really helpful. The local walks were excellent. Even when it rained we were all happy inside since the cottage has so many books, DVDs and CDs available for use by the guests. I wouldn't hesitate recommending this to other airbnb-ers.

I am travel writer and an author. I was born in Ireland, grew up in Canada but have spent most of my adult life in England. When I am not travelling, I currently divide my time between Rome and the UK.

As well as three travel books, I write regularly for most of the national newspapers in the UK including the Sunday Times, the Daily Telegraph and the Financial Times as well as for National Geographic Traveler in the States. I am a contributing editor at Conde Nast Traveller UK.

I moved from London to Dorset about ten years ago when I bought this cottage. I love it. I travel the world from the Andes to Mongolia but my idea of a holiday is a week or two in Fifehead. Bliss.
