Holiday Rental House
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.
