Why stay here ...

Note: All facilities are now open.

Mouse Cottage is set in the beautiful Dorset countryside hamlet of Nottington. The CL site has the River Wey running along its border with surrounding fields with public right of way to some beautiful countryside walks.

So whether you like to enjoy the quiet tranquillity of the CL site or fancy exploring the abundance of tourist attractions Dorset has to offer and beautiful beaches, our CL is in a good location to be based to access and enjoy Weymouth and the surrounding Jurassic coast along with Dorchester town which is a short journey by car or public transport.

A bus service runs frequently between Dorchester and Weymouth which is less than a half mile walk-away up Nottington Lane.

If you need local shops such as the Post Office, food stores, GP Practice or Veterinary service these are close to hand without having to venture into town. There are some lovely places to eat out or grab a takeaway and information can be obtained on site.

Mouse Cottage is well maintained and provides Wi-Fi, razor charging socket, shower and washing facilities with a washing machine, dryer, toaster, kettle and microwave in our heated utility block. Please check with the owner for any price amendments during the winter months.

We recommend that you book early to avoid disappointment! 

Emma and Craig look forward to welcoming you to their CL.

Exceptional - Best site we have stayed on in the UK

Mouse Cottage
Stayed at Mouse Cottage for 6 nights, we were welcomed immediately and all the facilities on site were explained. Using the facilities we found even more than we thought, including washing machine, toaster, kettle, microwave and a camping cookbook! As my wife had recently had an accident and couldn’t walk easily, she found both toilets and the shower to be fully equipped for disabled users, without highlighting it as disabled. Well positioned to get into Weymouth by bus or short taxi ride, spacious pitches and beautiful setting with horses and sheep close by. Would totally recommend this site for young and old, couples and families.

This last review doesn't give this CL a fair rating, in our opinion. We stayed at the same time and considering the amount of rain the site stood up remarkable well. It is fair to say it is well drained. There are two hard standing pitches plus pitches with gravel underlay, one of each was free at this time. The facilities were closed due to Covid regulations. We find the horses an added attraction and are very friendly, as are the owners Emma and Craig We have stayed many times and have never been disappointed. It has easy access and is secure, a lovely spot Highly recommended, members for 34 years JJCL Caravaners

Not exceptional

Mouse Cottage
Arrived in rain. Field was sodden. No facilities as expected but £20 charge still applied. Missed entrance as sign obscured. Lots of noise from horse in stable. Walks from site overgrown. Most pitches on slope. Pleasant and well maintained but nothing exceptional. Had booked after reading reviews here but disappointed. However a lovely country haven within easy reach of Weymouth.Other sites within sight. Craig very pleasant.

Wonderful Place to Stay

Mouse Cottage
We have just had a very enjoyable long weekend at Mouse Cottage. Met on arrival by Emma (and Baby!), we had a quick tour of the site and opted for a hardstanding pitch adjacent to the stable. The electric hook-up for this pitch is about 25m away but luckily we have a long enough cable - although Emma offered us the loan of one if we didn't so no need to worry if you only have a short cable. The CL is located in a VERY quiet little village with hardly any traffic so was absolutely fantastic for just sitting and chilling out in the beautiful countryside. The pitch we had meant that once set up MH door and outside table were south facing so we had the sun all day - when it was out it did pour with rain one afternoon of our stay! Due to COVID not all the facilities are open yet - however being self contained it didn't matter and the water, waste and rubbish points are closely located to all pitches - and no bad smells either. Emma & Craig have an adjacent field with some friendly horses and rare breed sheep - who are quite mad! We chose to walk down into Weymouth which is mainly downhill and just under 4 miles away - luckily the weather was good! We would definitely consider returning to Mouse Cottage - but next time we'll wait until Weymouth is fully open as it was difficult to get into pubs and restaurants due to only having outside tables available.

A hidden corner of Dorset

Mouse Cottage
We have just had a very enjoyable week at Mouse Cottage. Well located to explore the local coast, and view the cruise ships moored out in Weymouth Bay during COVID-19. Magnicent, but somewhat sad at the same time. And handy also to explore Very pretty scenery and villages north of Dorchester. When arriving, We somehow missed the road that took us to the Morrison’s roundabout. Never fear, take the road towards Upwey station, the bridge is huge to get under, then turn left onto the old Dorchester road, and right into Nottington lane. Due to Covid, Emma met us on arrival and then we were much left to ourselves. Sadly no information on local facilities, or her cakes to sample! WiFi was excellent. Tv good too. One side of site, near the stream loses the sun by 2ish, the other side near the permissive path is far sunnier. Your choice! Lovely to watch the horses in adjoining field, and a good easy circular walk from the footpath through the site, even for reluctant walkers (my husband!). Would have been nice to see pitches mowed after someone left (who had obviously been there a long time) but maybe no one else was due in?
