Able to sleep up to five people, this two bedroom property is situated on the border between Dorset and Somerset in the little village of Henstridge.

Set on the border between Dorset and Somerset in the outskirts of Henstridge, this single storey cottage has been skilfully converted to offer comfortable, well-equipped accommodation for up to five people. The property offers a stylish wet room shower, two bedrooms and an open-plan living area with views across the beautiful surrounding countryside. The cottage is idyllically situated for all local amenities and is within easy driving distance of the main attractions in Somerset, Dorset and Wiltshire.


A lovely location and a lovely cottage. The nearby towns are delightful and there is plenty to do. A thoroughly enjoyable location. I would happily recommend.
Mr Smith

Everything was very clean and tidy. Though compact, the cottage was perfect for our needs.

I booked the cottage after looking at the information on the Sykes cottages website. As I was travelling with my parents, one with mobility issues, I wanted a single level accommodation this fitted the bill. There are 3 cottages in a row and I found out before booking which would be best. This one is the furthest from the entry to the premises but that means you can park beside the flagstone patio area. The other 2 you can park beside only to drop someone out but the car then needs to be tucked back by the cottages to allow the other cars out. The bathroom is a wet room and a Mobray frame for the toilet and perching stool are available to use for anyone disabled. The only drawback for us was the twin bedroom was the opposite end of the property to the bathroom. My parents prefer twin beds to a double to sleep and the double I used was next to the bathroom. For my dad this was a distance to walk however this I am sure won't be a drawback for everyone. The property had everything we needed and the beds had comfortable mattresses. On the Somerset Dorset border so lots of places to visit within around an hours drive.

It was a lovely location with lots of places to see. We were made welcome and the cottage was beautiful.

Good location to visit the area. Wet room and Mowbray frame and bath/shower stool ideal for elderly parent. Great to be able to park adjacent to the patio for dad to step out into the property. Mum and I made good use of the patio area to sit and read in the sun when we came home from outings. Was able to access the internet which was useful to re-check information on the places we wanted to visit.
