More details and Booking Form


Spacious converted former farm building with high ceilings, open fire, pretty terrace and good access to a wealth of nearby attractions. The ideal spot for a relaxing break in picturesque Dorset.

Set in a tranquil location within a working farm, this spacious cottage has characterful rooms, an open fire and resident livestock to be seen in the surrounding fields. The nearby pretty village of Plush has a pub and a backdrop of rolling countryside, making it the ideal spot for enjoying a walk or cycle ride. For an enjoyable day out, head south towards the stunning Jurassic Coastline, where you will find a choice of beautiful beaches and the traditional seaside resort of Weymouth. Why not explore one of the many pretty towns and villages that are accessible from here, including Sherborne, Blandford, Sturminster Newton and Dorchester, which offer a great selection of cafes, shops and restaurants.

This semi-detached property is reached by a long driveway. On entering the property via the gravel pathway, you are met by a bright and airy lounge/diner, which has high ceilings, an open fire and TV and DVD. Here you can enjoy relaxed family meals around the table, before settling down with a film in front of the fire. Adjacent to the lounge is the kitchen area, which is well-equipped with an electric oven and hob, fridge, dishwasher, microwave and washing machine. Heading through the kitchen you will find a spacious king-size bedroom and a further twin bedroom (which can be made into a super-king-size zip-and-link on request at time of booking). Both rooms make use of the contemporary bathroom, which has a shower over bath and WC.

Moving outside, you will find a pretty enclosed lawn with a generous patio containing garden furniture and BBQ. Located directly to the front of the property, it’s the perfect spot for enjoying a meal outdoors, whilst your four legged friends can be free to roam in safety. There is ample off-road parking available within the nearby farmyard.

Dogs fees are charged per dog at £20.00 for up to 7 nights, £40.00 for up to 14 nights and an additional £20.00 for every week or part week thereafter.
