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.


Downside was a very comfortable cottage. It is in a very quiet situation with beautiful views. We enjoyed being on a working farm.

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.
