Travellers' Choice
Beautifully decorated house, peaceful and set in the most tranquil countryside, west of Dorchester and south of Sherborne. A spacious stylish home with stunning views, comfortable bedrooms with good beds and white linen, good water pressure and lovely toiletries in the bathrooms. The downstairs rooms include a flower filled garden room and sofas in the sitting room area with a log fire. Gourmet breakfasts are served in the garden room, with fresh orange juice, homemade muesli (loved by everyone!), garden fruit compot and Greek yoghurt, a full English Breakfast using locally sourced ingredients, toast and homemade jams. Excellent pubs closeby - serving restaurant food or more relaxed good pub grub. Martyn and Susie look forward to extending a warm welcome to you at Wooden Cabbage. Only 25 minutes' drive to the Jurassic Coast. Lovely walks closeby and wonderful gardens to visit, as well as NT houses. Dogs may now be accommodated in the oak barn - our self catering property adjacent to the house.

Martyn and Susie welcome you wholeheartedly in their lovely authentic English cottage. Everything is done with such detail and cleanliness. And in the morning, when you open the curtains, you see the sheep grazing on the adjacent meadow. It doesn’t get calmer, greener and more soothing than this. Also, both Martyn and Susie know the whole region very well and will help you with any questions and tips. We had a splendid time.

Spent 3 nights at the delightful Wooden Cabbage Martyn & Susie's hospitality was second to none, breakfast was a delicious feast We would recommend visiting The Greyhound for supper, as you certainly won't require lunch after your breakfast!

We stayed with Susie and Martin for a long weekend, on recommendation from a friend. We weren’t disappointed as we had a peaceful and comfortable short holiday. We stayed in the Oak Suite which had lots of room and comfortable furniture. We slept really well in our kingsize bed with luxury bedding and soft pillows. The added touch of flowers from garden gave a lovely aroma in the room. Breakfast was exceptional with Susie’s home made jams and preserves to go with her muesli and Greek yoghurt followed by full cooked breakfast and lots of toast. We loved the gardens and plants in their beautiful house of which they are so obviously proud. I am sure we will return.
