Outstanding !
Poppy Lodge is an ideal holiday venue, within easy reach of local attractions in both Somerset and Dorset. It is located in a most delightful and peaceful village, set amongst picturesque countryside and very near the local shop and a lovely pub restaurant. The lodge is situated in a quiet location with a view across open fields to the rear of the building. The owners live close by and are very helpful and friendly. The accommodation is very well laid out, extremely comfortable, very well-equipped and there is heating available if necessary. We also appreciated the significant effort that had been made to maintain the poppy theme throughout the lodge. The addition of a hand towel and egg poacher in the kitchen would have been useful and a dishwasher instead of a washing machine would be more convenient. Nevertheless it is by far the best self-catering accommodation that we have ever stayed in and is highly recommended.

Overall the cottage was very well equipped, clean, and modern.

You Won't be Disappointed
Superb accommodation in a beautiful setting. Friendly and helpful owners on hand if you need them but not at all intrusive. The location is ideal for sightseeing and we visited the Muchelnley Abbey, Montacute House, Sherbourne castle and gardens, Glastonbury Abbey and Stonehenge. Our dog was on holiday with us and we were able to take him to all of these places which allowed dogs access to the grounds so we all enjoyed our holiday. My husband enjoyed the Haynes Motor museum and the Fleet Air Museum which is a short journey away. Poppy Lodge was the perfect place to return to each day. It is clean, warm and very comfortable. For provisions there is a Sainsburys supermarket in nearby Sherborne or Morrisons and Lidl in Wincanton. If you don't want to bother to cook there is a very nice hotel a short walk from the lodge serving delicious food.

This is a lovely property in an ideal location for touring with lots of pet friendly places to visit in the area. I would highly recommend although you do need to book early. This property is popular and after spending a week here I can understand why.

Fantastic find. Excellent, clean accommodation with everything you could need. Comfortable first class furnishings. Loved the chickens and enjoyed seeing the 'girls' every day. Close to the lovely town of Sherborne, not far to Haynes Motor Museum and close to supermarkets etc. Weymouth about 1 hour away. Lovely Easter break and the owners even left us a chocolate chicken treat.
