Pound House is a spacious traditional Dorset thatched house and lies in the heart of the Dorset countryside, and has been in our family for many years. It is homely, comfortable and clean (great new cleaners employed after some negative comments over the summer), and has recently been redecorated, but is still a little frayed at the edges.

It is good for couples, families (with kids), ramblers, cyclists, climbers. It is a twenty minute drive to the sea.

I visited this lovely cottage with two adults and two teenagers and we all rated our trip very highly. The cottage is picture perfect and even the photo does not do it justice as it very beautiful. As described, the furnishings are comfortable and homely. However everywhere was …

Pound House looks beautiful from the outside. However, inside told a different story I'm afraid. The house is in need of some decoration and a thoroughly good clean! Simon states that the house is "professionally cleaned" between lettings but if this was the case then we would no…

We have had many wonderful and careful guests over our first summer of hosting through Airbnb. Julia's party sadly do not seem to have been among them. She complained about a number of things halfway through the week, at no point drawing attention to them in a timely way that would have allowed us to put things right. Instead she made a claim for half the rent back. She claimed, for instance, that the grass on the lawn was so long that they had to mow the lawn themselves. This was not the case according to our cleaners who checked the morning before they arrived. These are the comments from our cleaners about the condition in which Julia's party left our cottage: "Just to let you know that your last guests left the house in quite a state - drink stains all over the house (drips everywhere) a broken stool and stuff everywhere - moved or just gaps where things used to be." As we live in London, it is not possible to check ourselves on how our cottage is left immediately after our guests leave and we have to rely, naturally, on our cleaners to bring to our attention any problems. We have not, therefore, be unable to check to see if the things that the cleaners have noticed are missing from their usual places, have just been moved or if they are missing. Even if they have just been moved and not put back, this shows a lack of respect for our home that mean we cannot, in all good conscience, recommend Julia as guests we would ever want to have again.

The Pound House is idyllic and made for a truly memorable family holiday. The house is basic and rough around the edges but in way that adds to the character and makes it magical for the children. The location is perfect for most of Dorset's major attractions and there are plenty…

The house is in a very secluded spot and backs onto a working dairy farm, but is in reach of Dorchester for shopping. It is spacious and homely and the garden is a good size with a river by the side with a steep drop down to it. It is useful to be able to bring dogs and ours e…

Pleasant cottage with charm and character, in a nice secluded location off the beaten track. Nearby dairy farm provides that country ambiance. Quite jaded throughout, and in need of investment, sofas have little support and more lighting is needed in the main lounge. Kitchen in p…

Airbnb works on trust. As we live in London we cannot visit after every guest. Consequently, we were concerned by some of Phillip's comments. He emailed us to complain of the standard of cleaning when he arrived. He did not ask for the house to be cleaned again, but emailed that, for example, in relation to the kitchen, "The four of us had to spend almost 2 hours simply to reach an acceptable standard." This implies that the kitchen needed 8 hours of work, which we found hard to believe. Normally, if anything goes wrong, our guests contact us and we put it right immediately. For example, a smoke alarm went off and we got the electrician to come out at once. We offered to refund the cleaning fee, believing that the cleaners had not actually been. However, when we contacted them, we discovered that they had indeed been, carried out their regular clean and had not reported anything unusual. As a gesture of good will we offered anyway to refund half of the cleaning fee. Philip refused this. He then issued a claim for £110 for cleaning through Airbnb when he had only been charged £60. On this basis I regret that we cannot in all conscience recommend Philip.

An attractive thatched cottage in a beautiful part of Dorset. Our only real problem was communication and that there was no one near at hand to show us what was what and sort out the little wrinkles.

Sorry you felt that communication was lacking but it does state very clearly on Airbnb that we are not around and that you have to email us for the house instructions. Also, if you try to contact us we are always on hand to answer any questions that you may have.
