With so much to see and do in the area a week is... (read more)

The welcome at Upton Farm Cottages in Dorset was poor. There were white laminated rules plastered all over the cottage that made you feel unwelcome and like a 4 year old. Fake Antiques, such as the "double sided" 100 year old and hand painted rug under the dining table, and the Hand painted Mohair drapes (printed the same as the curtains). They were said to be the main feature of the cottage, along with the very old settee which had been re-furnished (probably around 1960), and it left us... (read more)
