This comfortable property is the perfect choice for families and dog lovers to explore this verdant part of North Dorset. There are excellent road links, a wood burner, views and an enclosed garden.

Surrounded by Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the historic towns of Sherborne (9 miles) and Shaftesbury (7.5 miles), there are many ways to spend your days at this charming abode. Sleeping eight guests across four bedrooms, make yourselves at home with family friends and four of your dogs and enjoy lively, sociable evenings or cosy times in front of the warming wood burner. Its country charm, traditional features and farmhouse style make this house a real home from home.

Brimming with farmhouse features, ceilings lined with exposed beams welcome you into the kitchen/diner where there is plenty of space for communal mealtimes and gathering to make plans. Ample worktop space means you can choose more than one designated chef and join forces to cook up a storm. Find all you need in the kitchen and stock the freezer sitting in the pantry with leftovers. With two dining tables to choose from, plate up inside or carry dishes out onto the rear patio for an al fresco feast lapping up the last of the sun. Command a space on the trio of sofas and settle down in front of the wood burner as the TV screens your favourite programme or you curl up with a book from the shelf. After exploring, scatter the coffee tables with treats and teapots and spend a while playing board games on the floor or pour over a map and decide upon your next adventures. With lawns to the front and back of the property, pups will have a ball as they stretch their legs, and you can join in the fun and play garden games to liven things up. The four, first-floor bedrooms all boast lovely, far-reaching views and are inviting spaces in which to drift off and dream. The bunk room is perfect for little ones. There is ample off-road parking.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Very comfortable cottage, very well equipped and very clean. The front garden is fully enclosed, very large and ideal for children and dogs. Lovely walks around the local fishing lakes and fields. The coast is an hours drive away but lots to do locally in the lovely local towns and villages with Longleat, Wookey caves and various National trust houRead moreses and gardens close by. We loved our stay. Hide

Beautiful farmhouse which made a great base for exploring the surrounding area. Lots of little extras made it very welcoming, like a tray of goodies on arrival. Well stocked with equipment and plenty of room for guests.
