Excellent acomodation in a gorgeous part of Dorset.  Just back from a week staying in Wheelwrights Cottage at the Old Forge. We thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of the stay thanks to our welcoming hosts Tim and Lucy.
The cottage is well equipped, clean and spacious…

The cottage has all the practical necessities and good wifi so we could keep up with the world as we enjoyed the peace and tranquility of Compton Abbas and its environs.
What made the holiday was the location with easy walking access to the downs with their incredible views…

During our stay we walked a new one each day and the experience just improved – nothing beats the satisfaction of getting to the top of a hill with 360 degree views!! Exhausting but good for the soul.
We would highly recommend Wheelerights and the Old Forge – so much so that we’ve already re-booked for same time next year. Staycations rule!!
