We can’t rate Original Cottages Dorset highly enough

We started letting in 2019 and from the start found Original Cottages Dorset a pleasure to deal with. The website is easy to use for and we’re notified by email as soon as a booking has been made. We can’t rate Original Cottages Dorset highly enough. 

Owner Bumble Bees, Weymouth

it was made so easy I wished I had done this a long time ago!

They gave great advice setting up the property, in fact it was made so easy I wished I had done this a long time ago! Nothing is too much trouble and they are regularly in touch to check in and see if I’m happy with everything or need anything. What more can you ask?
