Relaxing getaway just outside Dorchester & Sherborne. Comfortable & spacious self catering cottage with excellent facilities. I would definitely recommend staying here if you want a nice country break in a rural setting in which to explore Dorset.

Rural getaway just outside Dorchester. Relaxing atmosphere for self contained residence for 2 to 4 people - we used it as a launch pad for Dorchester/ Sherbourne/ Ludlow/ etc. Excellent facilities. Space for our dog as well. Would highly recommend.

Thank Paul G
