Perfect for a relaxing break surrounded by countryside, this stylish property is set within a small working sheep farm on the outskirts of Shaftesbury and is ideally placed for touring the Blackmore Vale.

Set within the heart of North Dorset, this contemporary converted property offers views over surrounding fields, making it the perfect spot for walkers and nature lovers alike. Conveniently located near both Tisbury and Gillingham railway stations, the property is ideally situated for touring the local area by rail or by car. The town of Shaftesbury is a stone’s throw away, which is home to the iconic Gold Hill, made famous by the Hovis adverts and it has a good choice of pubs, cafes, shops and restaurants, as well as the historic abbey, making it the perfect place to spend a relaxed afternoon. Heading south is the stunning Jurassic Coastline, which provides the ideal backdrop for walking, cycling and all manner of outdoor pursuits.

On entering this attached former farm building you are met by a bright and airy open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner decorated with care in muted tones. The stylish kitchen area is well-equipped with a gas oven and hob, fridge, microwave and washing machine. An open archway leads you into the cosy lounge area, which offers a TV and DVD and has beautiful views over the fields, making this the perfect place to relax and unwind after a day spent exploring this picturesque area. Adjacent to here is a contemporary shower room, which has a shower and WC. Heading back through the lounge is a spacious and inviting king-size bedroom, again with lovely views. Amenities: Wi-Fi included.

Venturing outside you will find a generous gravelled courtyard with garden furniture, pretty climbing plants and a BBQ. Easily accessed from the lounge/kitchen/diner, it’s the perfect spot for enjoying a meal outdoors. There is ample off-road parking within the farmyard surrounding the property.

Cosy cottage, thougthfully equipped and nicely decorated. Quiet neighbourhood but close to Shaftesbury (pubs, restaurants, shopping, ...) and offering many options for excursions. Friendly owners. Just what we needed.

Lovely property for the two of us and our small dog (molly) in a wonderful setting on Andrea's and Graham's farm. Warm and cosy with everything you need and A & G were welcoming and there when needed. Would recommend and hope to return sometime in the near future.

Pooh Corner is a lovely comfortable well equipped cottage with amazing views from the lounge overlooking farm land. There is a great walk leading to a fantastic field for dogs to exercise. Thanks to the lovely farmers daughter Hannah for making us feel so welcome and to little Harry who collected the free range eggs from the farm chickens for us. BRead moreest eggs ever! We will be looking forward to coming back next year. Hide

A well presented cottage on a quiet farm with walks on the doorstep. A great base to explore both the Blackmore Vale & not that far for a trip to the coast.

Reviewed by Stephen, 28th June 2019

It is a lovely holiday home, set in a tranquil countryside area. Easy access to three counties also.

This cottage was immaculately clean and lovely and warm! I know a lot of people love log burners, personally we dont so the central heating was a boon.. It's a small cosy place but ideal for two, brilliant location handy for so many locations! And tho it's very 'touristy' Stonehenge was well worth a visit...

Reviewed by Peter, 19th April 2019

It was a delight to stay here. For 2 people it is an ideal bolt hole, with the historic town of Shaftesbury only about 3 miles away. There is a 7/11 type store on the way into town and a large Tesco on the bypass. Despite being on a farm the cottage retains a fair degree of privacy and there is little or no sound intrusion from the farm.

Reviewed by S, 17th April 2019

The Cottage was spot on and could not have asked for a better place, set in stunning countryside. We had the warmest of welcomes and nothing was to much trouble for the host. Highly recommended and we will be booking again.
