Very comfortable with some original beams dating back many centuries, updated with everything needed for a break in the countryside. One of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in! Very convenient for visiting Sherborne Abbey, Castle, nearby Shaftesbury or any of the other nearby national trust houses and gardens.

Colin and Annie were wonderful hosts and ensured that we had a really special stay in their charming summer house. We had the most delicious breakfast left for us in the fridge, and enjoyed meeting their bantam hens around the garden, whose eggs we also enjoyed. The Summer House is furnished tastefully, is extremely comfortable and is a really lovely part of England to stay in. It was the nicest way to emerge from lockdown.

Stayed for three nights in the dairy cottage with my husband in half term October 2020, we found the accommodation to be cozy but incredibly well appointed, it was peaceful and immaculate. It is bijou and rustic, but comes with a top notch bathroom, bedding, bed and towels. The self catering facilities are very good with a fully fitted kitchen. A lovely continental breakfast for our 1st morning was provided for us, which was plentiful, tasty and of a high quality. The cottage was warm and came with all the necessities of a self catering accommodation. The accommodation is located just a short drive (3 or so miles) from the lovely large village/small town of Sherborne, with many smart shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants. We used it as a base to explore a little further afield such as the Jurassic coast and Abbotsbury subtropical garden, after long days out driving, walking and exploring it was a wonderful cozy retreat to return to, would not hesitate to recommend, and we will return.

Perfect for a quick weekend away before hiding away from what looks like being a risky winter! Spotlessly clean and delightfully cute with everything thought of and provided for. Breakfast provided and included fresh bread from next door bakery. Very well located with loads to do in the beautiful surrounding area
