“Vicky was very helpful and great to deal with and the property is a beautiful old cottage within wonderful English countryside yet not far from the picturesque towns of Shaftesbury and Blandford Forum. Unfortunately the weather while we were there, over New Year, was grey and miserable but the lovely open fire in the lounge was great to come home to and warmed our hearts as well as our bodies! I would love to come back but this time in the summer to take full advantage of the house, the swimming pool, the tennis court and the local walks.”
Vicky's reviewsAs a host (2)
“We had the most fantastic week and instantly felt relaxed and at home all thanks to our thoughtful and generous hosts. The house is accompanied by a lovely plot of land with tennis court and a long paddock and lovely babbling brook at the bottom, which is perfect for our dog, he had the best time, My daughter was smitten by the horses and one of the daughters lovely friends gave her a ride on one which was so kind and made her week. The pool weather wasn’t favourable for us, but it was March, however the hot tub made up for it. Vicky and her husband had gone to a lot of effort to make sure it was a comfortable stay for us for which we will be eternally grateful”
Where is it?
In a quiet Dorset hamlet set in 16 acres with a small river at the bottom of the large field. There is great space to relax. We are a good walk from a farm shop with a vegetarian cafe serving delicious food, and a small gallery. The nearest village is Child Okeford which is 2 miles away and has a village shop. Shaftesbury is 7 miles away and has a supermarket and various cafes and shops to visit. Bath is one hour away, a stunning City, Salisbury 45 minutes away and Stonehenge is about 40 minutes. The beach is an hour away. We love the peace of the area and the fun we have on our doorstep with the pool and tennis court.
