Spacious holiday home situated within private gated grounds, with use of large gardens, and enjoying a fantastic location in the Dorset countryside, just twenty miles from Bournemouth’s sandy beaches.

This property is located in a rural part of Dorset, and yet is just three miles from the Georgian town of Blandford Forum. At the heart of the town is the historic market place, clustered around which is a range of independent shops and pubs. The surrounding area has much to offer visitors, including the handsome manor and gardens of Kingston Lacey, a beautiful National Trust property. For a fun family day out, Gorcombe Farm, which is just one mile from the property, offers a selection of outdoor adventure activities, including archery, paintball, dirt buggies, and quad biking. For a more sedate, but equally fun experience, a trip to Bournemouth is not to missed, especially for those who enjoy a proper seaside holiday, with sandy beaches, seafront entertainment, and safe bathing conditions.

A grand driveway leads up to these four properties situated within a private gated complex. From the hallway, guests come through to the spacious, light-filled lounge/diner with its large, deep sofas from which they can enjoy the TV with Sky channels. A dining table is situated to one side of the room, next to the patio doors which open onto the outside space.

The kitchen, though modestly-sized is equipped with everything that guests will need, including an oven, hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, and washing machine. One of the property’s bedrooms is located on the ground floor: a king-size room which benefits from an en-suite shower and WC, and its own TV with Sky Channels. Upstairs, there are two further bedrooms, which also both have their own TV with access to Sky channels. The first of these is a relaxing king-size room with a seating area and en-suite shower room with WC. The third bedroom is a generously-sized twin room, which boasts an en-suite bathroom with shower-over-bath and WC. There is also a cloakroom with WC on the ground floor.

Patio doors from the lounge/diner lead out to the property’s garden, which has plenty of space to relax and play on the lawn, as well as a patio with garden furniture and a BBQ. Children will love the outdoor space, as there is a sunken trampoline for them to bounce on, as well as a Swingball set, badminton net, and racquets. Outdoor heated, shared swimming pool available May - September. It is also possible to hire a hot tub for your break, at an added cost, which adds an extra layer of relaxing fun to your break. There is adequate off road parking available.

A well appointed and comfortable cottage with pleasant views across the countryside. We received a warm welcome and help was on hand when needed. You would need a car whenever going out as nearest amenities ( shop, pub etc) are at least 3 miles away.

Great private garden, very quite during our stay. Kids loved the slide in the garden, spotting the birds and the pig statues in the parking area. Comfy living accommodation too with more books and building blocks for the kids. Margaret made sure we had 2 cots and 2 high chairs for our twins - such a bonus. On the down side the downstairs En suite dRead moreoor was off its hinges, the shower cubicle had a very high step up so inaccessible for my mother and the cigarette butts in plant pot unacceptable.

A beautiful bright airy cottage with three en-suite bedrooms. The upstairs bedroom have magnificent views over open countryside and massive bright bathrooms. The cottage is set within wonderful countryside and centrally placed for visiting the Dorset attractions.

A lovely homely property in beautiful surroundings. Well equipped, clean and spacious. Secluded position, with well tended grounds. The downstairs en suite bedroom was perfect for my elderly parents & the 2 upstairs en suite bedrooms were airy, spacious & comfy.

Good position to use as a base for visiting a many attractions- highly recommended. Hide

The cottage was perfect. Their were 3 large bedrooms all with ensuite. The lounge/dining room was a really good size and was well equipped, but there is no separate room other than this downstairs. Overall the cottage was well equipped, clean, peaceful and a great location for our xmas break.
