An Inspector Calls...

I recently had my annual inspection from the people at Visit Britain and he very kindly awarded Wisteria Cottage a Silver Award to go with the four star rating - whoopie!

Things have got busy of late after a sluggish period after Easter and the house is fully occupied until the 9th July. My apologies to anyone who had planned to visit during June but now cannot, however I still have availability from July onwards.

Wintry Scene in West Dorset

Sleepy Dorset became snowy Dorset last week with a sudden and somewhat unexpected snowfall. Wisteria Cottage became cut off for some time with branches down across the lanes and a foot of snow. We also lost power for 11 hours. In best Dunkirk Spirit our guests bravely took everything in their stride, foregoing hot showers for a pan of hot water in the wash basin, ( Thank goodness I fitted an LPG hob) and extra blankets. Thanks to my guest Martyn Harris, who assisted with the branch clearance on the lanes and to Roy Griffiths who sent some wonderful pictures he took showing just how beautiful this part of the world looks under snow.

roy is a professional photographer and I recommend looking at his website:
