Completed for 2018 this stylish, contemporary lodge has a delightful tranquil feel about it and makes an excellent holiday base to explore, whatever the season.

The lodge is one of three lodges which have been carefully positioned to ensure your privacy, yet with wonderful views towards the Dorset Gap. Nestled in the rural village of Ansty amid glorious Dorset countryside, these delightful lodges make an excellent holiday base to explore this pretty county whatever the season. Beautifully finished and with uninterrupted views over the lake and on to the surrounding countryside, the lodges are surrounded by Christmas trees to ensure maximum seclusion and have a wonderful "Norwegian" feel about them. Steeped in history, Dorset's landscape of rolling chalk downland and hidden valleys affords wonderful walking, with a network of footpaths directly from the lodge. You will be a couple of minutes' walk to a traditional 250 year old pub which has an inviting bar and restaurant and on-site there is a farm shop selling everything from locally produced meat to freshly baked bread and croissants. The area offers a host of pretty and well renowned villages, sandy beaches and the Jurassic coastline which has World Heritage status. The towns of Dorchester, Blandford Forum and Weymouth are easily accessible and there are many attractions including Monkey World, Abbotsbury Swannery, Lulworth Castle to name but a few.

Upon entering the lodge, guests will immediately gain a sense of light and space which features throughout the living area. The hallway leads through to the impressive open-plan lounge/kitchen/dining room which has been designed to make the most of the countryside views. The full height windows, which overlook the garden and beyond, flood the room with light and offer opportunities to stargaze on a clear night. The lounge area provides a comfortable space to relax and catch up with friends and family, with two sofas and an armchair arranged around the cosy wood burner and TV. The stylish kitchen is equipped with an electric range oven and gas hob, microwave, fridge, freezer and dishwasher. This lovely entertaining space also has a dining area, perfect for enjoying leisurely meals. Leading from the entrance hallway there is a useful utility room with a washer/dryer and a WC. The lodge has three bedrooms, all of which have their own en-suite shower rooms and WCs. There are two cosy double bedrooms with king-size beds and one twin bedroom with 2’6’’zip-and-link beds which can be made into a king-size on request at time of booking.

Opening the lounge doors to the garden, guests can relax in the hot tub on the private veranda and take in beautiful views over the farmland. There is a step down to an open lawn area and there is also a table, chairs and a BBQ, perfect for those wishing to dine al fresco or enjoy a warm summers evening in these delightfully peaceful surroundings. Steps lead up from the lodge to the parking area which provides ample off-road parking.

Beautiful high end lodge in perfect surroundings with helpful hosts. A local pub at the end of the lane and lots of local circular walk options. Could not have asked for more for our girls getaway.

Just returned after a fantastic 3 night stay. The lodge is beautiful and comfortable. The bedrooms all have en-suite and are beautifully decorated. The hot tub was an added bonus and is extremely large and spacious. The lodge comes with all necessary home comforts and we didnt need or want for anything.

Weve just spent Christmas at the lodge and it was fantastic. Spectacular views, amazing hot tub and beautiful lodge. 10/10 holiday home. Highly recommended

Reviewed by Craig, 28th October 2018

We had a fantastic week at this lodge, everything had been thought about and the accommodation was excellent. A great rural retreat but a short drive to lots of places for a family with children to keep them entertained. Back at base we had many great walks finished off in the fox inn across the road from the lodges, many hours spent in the hot tubRead more. Lots of memories made Hide

The property is exactly as promoted, but the location is truly stunning and much better than can be conveyed in pictures. The proximity of the farm shop and pub is a real bonus too.

Excellent accommodation in a peaceful location with many good walks on our doorstep. Enjoyed good food in the Fox Inn.

An amazing lodge in a peaceful location. The whole family loved it here especially the hot tub. We have stayed in one of the other lodges and this is just as good would love to return someday.
