Holiday Rental House
The property is located 2 miles from Dorchester., just off the road to Sherborne. Located down a single track road with fields in front and 5 country properties nearby it is quiet but not isolated. There is a public golf course adjacent to the property. It is possible to walk to Dorchester but a car is almost essential. There is a popular country pub less than one mile away and several nice pubs serving good food within a short drive. Dorchester is known for its links with Thomas Hardy and his house can be visited in the town. Weymouth is 12 miles away and the Jurrassic Beach is a short easy drive. There are lots of good walks around the area. Corfe Castle is a 30 minute drive and beyond is the lovely beach of Studlands from where the ferry crosses Poole Harbour to Sandbanks.

The property itself, is recently converted from a barn. it looks plain from the outside but inside is much larger than you would think and the accomodation is of a high quality and spacious. The garden is small but not overlooked and south facing. We can accept one smallish dog.More

A lovely short break in a very spacious barn conversion. From the outside, the home looked quite nondescript but once inside was like a Tardis. The cottage was beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean and equipped with everything you needed for the perfect holiday. The home made...More

About the neighbourhood
Situated down a single lane dead end road it is possible to walk along footpaths for 4 miles across undulating fields and woodland. Just deer and birds for company. Further afield there is the famous Jurassic coastline of Dorset but still only 12 miles away. Dorchester is 2 miles away and it is possible to walk there.
Getting around
We do recommend a car but the taxi fare from Dorchester station to the cottage is about £6.00 and in Dorchester you can get buses along the coast.
