We moved to West Dorset in 2018 following a long appreciation … of Dorset Tea! In fact, that was our only connection with Dorset having only ever previously visited Bournemouth. For years, we drank Dorset Tea as we enjoyed the flavour, but mostly, we drank it because we fell in love with the artwork on the box (a beautiful valley looking out to sea, flanked by dramatic hills and patchwork fields). Every morning when we made our first brew of the day, the scene on the box gave us simple cheer, and being big Dorset Tea drinkers we looked at that cheerful scene several times a day for many years!
In 2018 we relocated, and travelled nationwide searching for our dream property – a family home with a neighbouring holiday cottage. We viewed Frogmore and looked no further.
Stepping out onto the veranda for the first time we were transfixed by the view – almost identical to the scene on the Dorset Tea box that we had loved looking at for many previous years! We fell in love with the property immediately and were blown away by its location on the Jurassic Coast, and the total charm of the surrounding area of outstanding natural beauty, and everything that the West Dorset area offered.
A total renovation and refurbishment of the holiday cottage took place and ‘Frog by the Sea Cottage’ opened in August 2019.
We still enjoy drinking Dorset Tea and a box is added to every welcome hamper for our guests to enjoy.
