With a sunny conservatory looking out onto a well-maintained garden and two comfortable bedrooms, this relaxing property offers well-appointed accommodation for up to four people.

This semi-detached Dorset cottage is a self-contained wing of the owner's farmhouse, peacefully situated on a working dairy farm close to the charming village of Mosterton. Positioned on the borders of West Dorset and South Somerset, the cottage offers well-equipped, comfortable accommodation, with views across the Axe Valley, a cosy open fire and sunny conservatory. This is a wonderful place to relax after a day exploring this designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Visitors can enjoy a fresh egg for breakfast from one of the free-range chickens, or watch the calves being fed across this 180-acre farm.


The cottage was spacious and light. Very comfortable and well equipped and the owners were extremely friendly and helpful.
Mrs Beard

In a quiet and peaceful setting and with very lovely owners of the farm. Had a perfect holiday.
Mrs Lott

We have just returned from a long weekend here ..and can't wait to return!! ... what a wonderful place to stay! A well equipped cottage in the country on a working farm run by a lovely family who didn't mind us traipsing around whenever we wanted. Cows sheep chickens and ducks, trixie the dog and 3 cats.....and not forgetting the Bull. Situated within a short drive of Somerset and Devon with the gorgeous beaches and places of interest. The Admiral Hood public house also deserves a mention for its hospitality and wonderful food x

The cottage was comfortable and cosy and the conservatory enabled us to enjoy the light evenings even if it was chilly outside. The cottage was easy to find and in a good location to explore.
