A narrow country lane leads to this idyllic cottage giving guests a taste of the quiet countryside surroundings that this property enjoys. As would be expected for a rural property there are plenty of enjoyable walks to be had close by and guests might enjoy a pleasurable stroll along the River Stour or perhaps the circular walk around the Iron Age ramparts of the hillfort at nearby Hod Hill. Three miles south of the property the Georgian town of Blandford Forum is a pleasant market town which not only still has a weekly market but also maintains a range of traditional shops including a great butcher and a bakery and even boasts its own brewery which has its own shop and is open for tours.

This single-storey cottage makes a lovely place for a quiet stay in a pretty rural location. On arrival guests may like to make themselves comfortable in the lounge/diner where there is a warming wood burner a TV/DVD iPod dock patio doors and a selection of books for guests to enjoy. The galley-style kitchen is located just off the lounge/diner and offers an oven hob microwave fridge/freezer dishwasher washing machine and coffee machine.

The property has two bedrooms the first of which is a king-size room with views overlooking the garden. The second bedroom meanwhile is a pleasant twin room with 2 6 beds which can be made up as a double room on request at the time of booking. The shower room has a shower and WC.

Outside there is a delightful covered seating area to the rear of the property which is accessed through the patio doors in the lounge. There is garden furniture here as well as a BBQ making it a great space for alfresco drinks or meals. Beyond this area is a spacious enclosed lawn which is great for relaxing and playing.

There are also a good range of leisure facilities available to guests which include a games room with table football an outdoor table tennis table boules and croquet. The owner of the property has a private stretch of the River Stour which guests can use to launch canoes if they have and can also be used for fishing by arrangement with the owner. There are four mountain bikes available for hire which is particularly handy if guests are unable to bring their own.

A fantastic and unusual addition to the property is the shepherds hut which is located in a nearby paddock and offers a fun overnight glamping experience with its double bed wood burner separate kitchen hut firepit and compost WC. This can all be experienced at an additional cost of 50 per night or 250 per week and needs to be booked directly with the owner. There is ample parking available.
