Set in an enviable location covering some six acres of rural Dorset, this welcoming house makes a fantastic base for family holidays exploring all that the coast and countryside have to offer

Imagine a quintessential English farmhouse and you might conjure up an image of this gorgeous Dorset longhouse. With thatched roofs, romantic flowers adorning the exterior walls, and bright, pretty rooms full of character, it will make you feel as though you are starring in a period drama. Enjoy the house for its restful country atmosphere, before setting out into the rural trails of Fifehead Neville, the picturesque hamlet in which the farmhouse is set. Strolling these country lanes, it is easy to imagine the place just as it was when the house was built. Beyond, the stunning rolling countryside of Cranborne Chase is yours to explore, with walks and cycle rides as well as picturesque villages to discover in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The house itself is a traditional Dorset longhouse, tucked away at the end of a lush secluded lane. The facade is the picture of a country cottage, where you can step in to find rooms that keep the dream going. The kitchen is an open-plan homely hangout, with seating areas beside a traditional country Aga and a dining table that allows your whole group to dine in the pretty light of the garden. If you fancy eating alfresco, head out to your magical terrace — you’ll want to linger in this atmospheric hideaway, amid the rambling flowers of the garden. Head to the lounge or snug to relax in warm, inviting surroundings. Then, when you’ve well and truly exhausted the day, retire to the property’s five bedrooms - all are characterful, with dreamy beds under beams and views out over the countryside. Wake up and gaze out to the farmland — then head out to explore. Wander the footpaths and meet the animals - you can even pick homegrown produce to try later.

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

The land around this lovely farmhouse is yours to explore. Open countryside extends in all directions, offering your walking boots a great day out. There are many unspoiled habitats here, so bird and wildlife watching is a must. Spot a nightingale or a woodpecker during your morning stroll. For some nearby town life, head to Sturminster Newton, 2.5 miles from your door - it’s a vibrant market town tucked into a curve in the River Stour. There are great cafes and pubs to sample, as well as local crafts and the Sturminster Newton Mill, which presides prettily over the community. Further afield, the Jurassic Coast begins dramatically 23 miles to the south, including Durdle Door, a breathtaking limestone arch that sits out at sea beside a sweet cove.

A most beautiful of cottages, with a wonderfully warm and central kitchen, truly was the heart of the home. We could all hang out there doing various activities such as reading, playing cards, cooking, chasing a ball (toddler) without getting under each other's feet. The rooms were beautiful, the bathrooms worked a treat. Despite the cold, the largRead moree cottage was toasty and warm everywhere. I just can't describe enough how wonderful everything was for a family holiday Hide

Rose Cottage was such a magical place for us to spend Christmas 2019. The decor is beautiful and was made extra special by Miranda ensuring the house was gorgeously decorated ready for the festive period (Xmas tree etc). All the bedrooms and bathrooms were clean and comfortable and the kitchen/dining room was the perfect space for entertaining withRead more a games room for added fun. There was certainly ample living space for 8 adults and 2 kids to all enjoy which we did! Thanks again for having us. Hide
