Rainbow Cottage is set in a beautiful location, and is a wonderfully relaxing place to stay. This is what some of the visitors have said.

"We had a lovely week at Rainbow Cottage thank you. What a find, so well equipped and comfortable. It was the most homely holiday let any of us had stayed in. Our group ranged from age 8 to 80 and there was something for everyone. And what a fantastic village too! We felt like we had stepped into a novel and the world had slowed right down.

We really enjoyed using the Aga - a first for us all!!"

The Mitchell family

"We cannot Thank You enough for giving us the opportunity to share in your little slice of paradise. Looking at the guest book, many people feel the same way. It was so wonderful, you just don't want to leave. We had a super time going out and about too. I've recommended you to anyone who will listen!"

Kind Regards


"Rainbow Cottage was just perfect for our family of 6 adults, 1 grandchild and 1 small dog. It was a lovely home from home for us to enjoy and had everything you could need for a family holiday. We managed to visit all kinds of attractions from lovely beaches and bays to rolling hills with monkey world for the little one and the Tank Museum for the not so little. Dorset is a lovely county to explore and Rainbow Cottage is a well kept treasure which really made our holiday."

Tony and Eleanor Howes

From the moment we stepped inside, Rainbow Cottage felt like home! It doesn't feel like a self catering rental cottage; it feels like Caroline has gone away for the weekend and let us stay! Everything is perfection!

The interior design is delightful, it's the best equipped cottage any of us have stayed in.

Thank you more than we can express for the ideal venue for a unique family weekend of multiple celebrations. We can't wait to return, and will recommend Rainbow Cottage to everyone!

Shepherd Family.

We all had a wonderful time in this wonderfully well equipped cottage.

All of us were thrilled with Rainbow Cottage, and couldn't get over how cosy and homely it was.

We all think the cottage is lovely and was an ideal location for what we wanted to do. The White Horse provided us with excellent food and beers etc. We all hope to come again soon.

Shortt Family.

We had such a lovely stay, only wish we could stay longer, 10 days was not enough! Beautiful surroundings with excellent walks. Thanks for the perfect family Christmas!

Offord Family

Me and my family has such a good time! You've made a lovely homely place. Love how the Scrabble is luxury. The village is lovely, such a friendly area. Felt very safe.


We have had a fantastic time here again at Rainbow Cottage! Thank you! See you next year!

Dunne Family

We had a lovely holiday in this gorgeous cottage, we really felt at home. Thanks for this beautiful and relaxing holiday.

de Graf Family, Netherlands

Cottage as comfy as ever, love the new decoration Caroline!

Mowles Family

Another restful pre-Easter at Rainbow Cottage.

Hawkins Family

Just to say how comfortable we found Rainbow Cottage. Lovely!We loved the area, never having been to Dorset before, we found so much to see and do on the doorstep.

Jenny, Chester.

This is our third visit and the cottage is still as comfortable as ever! Also what a bonus to have those chickens (with their lovely eggs for sale) so nearby! I am attaching a photo of me and my youngest so with a small fraction of our catch from our mackerel fishing trip out of Lyme! If you are a sailor (with a strong stomach, which thankfully we all have) I can heartily recommend both the experience and Harry May - at his request I left about 100 of his business cards in the cottage for future guests! We had a lovely time although I regret that I didn't go back to the visitor book to finish my entry with our visit to Matt Follas' 'The Wild Garlic' in Beaminster on the Friday night. He was the winner of Masterchef in 2009 and his ethos is based a little in the concept of 'foraging'. He was a genial host - coming to our table to chat. My pudding in particular was delicious - ginger pudding with orange custard and fennel seeds and liquorice ice cream - sounds bizarre but it was fantastic! I have never seen so many diners in one restaurant sharing tastes of their food with their companions!

'We had a super weekend. Thank you.Lovely cottage well equipped for all our cooking needs. Warm and cosy but spacious. A 'home from home'. We'd all love to come back soon!'

Doreen and friends, Basingstoke.

'Just wanted to say thanks for such a wonderful stay - all my family thoroughly enjoyed the cottage, it is truly special and we hope to come back soon, next time for longer!'

Miss N and family, Middlesex.

'PS: And great DVD library!'

We had a lovely time at Rainbow Cottage. It is such a beautiful, well equipped, cosy Cottage. Our Labrador Rosie thoroughly enjoyed herself. She loved it in the Sea at West Bay, Lyme Regis & Weymouth! We were so lucky with the weather, we even got sunburnt on Saturday!

The view from Eggardon Hill is stunning. We didn't walk too far though, as it was very very windy up there. We loved Dorset & will definitely return in the future.

Many thanks & kind regards


What a wonderful cottage we could not have found anything better,it fitted our every need. Shame about the weather but everybody still had a great time. Thanks again.

Geoff J

Had good time at the cottage last week. Having done a lot of self-catering in the southwest over the years we felt that the cottage was the best equipped and most comfortable that we have stayed in.

Thank you,

Cathy W and family

We had a great time - a very well set up cottage, and we may well return in future!

David W and family

'We had a fantastic weekend, your cottage is beautiful, homely and welcoming, the ideal spot to unwind, explore and take in the beauty of Dorset. A fantastic house in a lovely village. We will definitely come back!'

The Ws, 60th birthday celebration.

We had a fantastic time at Rainbow Cottage, extremely comfortable, cosy and a great setting. It is one of the nicest cottages we have stayed at, thank you.

We rode the speedboat at West Bay and had a lovely time visiting places and relaxing on the beach or in the garden - superb. We are discussing booking again soon!

We really enjoyed ourselves - everyone had a great time and loved the cottage. We hope to return in the future.

Loved the DVD library, only had time to watch one but can imagine making better use of it over the course of a week...


We had a fabulous time at Rainbow cottage. It was so warm and cosy. We have been to quite a few cottages over the last 6 years and this was one of our favourites. We will definitely be coming back sometime in the near future. (I have passed your details onto a friend of mine, today, as they are also looking for a cottage to stay in). The welcome hamper was a lovely surprise and came in very useful. We were amazed at the DVD collection as well. There really are so many good things to say about the cottage. I'm sure I will be in contact with you again soon.

Thank you very much.

This cottage felt like home the moment we walked through the door. So warm and cosy and perfectly equipped. My mother felt it was the perfect place to celebrate her 65th birthday.

The F family, Bucks.

We have really enjoyed our weekend here at Rainbow Cottage - we have stayed in many cottages before and this one is the best equipped and stocked. We loved cooking on the Aga (the Aga was the main reason for coming here!) and the furnishings are very cosy. The DVD collection is amazing and we felt guilty after only managing to watch 3!

F & J and friends.

What a lovely cottage! Really comfortable and cosy. Village lovely. Two days not enough. Need to come back for a week to catch up on all those films. Thanks very much.

C and D family

Thank you so much for a perfect weekend escape. The cottage was everything we hoped for, and more.

A-M and friends

What a peaceful village. Will definitely be coming back and look forward to going back to the White Horse Inn, my favourite new 'local'!

Tom M.

A lovely place to stay and the DVD collection is knockout!

The A family, Yorkshire

A great time had by Grandad, children and grandchildren in idyllic surroundings. Everyone fell in love with the cottage. Very comfortable and well-equipped . Dorset is a lovely county and the village is well located for some of the best sites.
