Able to sleep four people, this charming cottage has two bedrooms - one double with en suite and a balcony, as well as an en suite twin with colour TV and DVD player.

As one of three properties in a charming courtyard setting, this accommodation offers views over countryside and an adjoining golf course in the village of Charminster. Just one and a half miles from Dorchester, this building has been sympathetically renovated to retain many original beams and other character features. The well-equipped fitted kitchen also comes with a central breakfast bar whilst the cosy sitting room offers a dining area and electric fire. Local amenities are plentiful and are all within easy travelling distance of the property.


The downstairs accommodation was spacious and well planned. It would certainly work for a party of four
Mr Holdsworth

Excellent kitchen, lounge and dining area. Very well equipped, in superb location.
Mr Pardoe

Fantastic place to stay, very comfortable. Lounge area was a great space to relax in. Excellent location, quiet, yet close enough to town centre and all the places we wanted to visit. The garden was ideal to soak up the sun and for the children to play in. Lots of fantastic places to visit.

Comfortable, quiet, home from home
Generally. a lovely comfortable place, quiet location, but accessible for lots of attractions. Owners lived nearby, but didn't come across on arrival to make sure everything was okay; would have been nice for them to introduce themselves. Must have been having a problem with flies as there were many fly papers hanging in living areas, left a feeling of slightly unclean. Also, fly problem made us feel we couldn't open the windows to allow fresh air into the property. Consequently, bedrooms became very hot to the point of causing uncomfortable nights sleep.
