This cottage was immaculately clean and lovely and warm! I know a lot of people love log burners, personally we dont so the central heating was a boon.. It's a small cosy place but ideal for two, brilliant location handy for so many locations! And tho it's very 'touristy' Stonehenge was well worth a visit...

It was a delight to stay here. For 2 people it is an ideal bolt hole, with the historic town of Shaftesbury only about 3 miles away. There is a 7/11 type store on the way into town and a large Tesco on the bypass. Despite being on a farm the cottage retains a fair degree of privacy and there is little or no sound intrusion from the farm.

The Cottage was spot on and could not have asked for a better place, set in stunning countryside. We had the warmest of welcomes and nothing was to much trouble for the host. Highly recommended and we will be booking again.

A lovely cottage with some really personal touches. The bed is just so comfortable and the views spectacular. Unfortunately we encountered snow so we're unable to explore much of the area. Will definitely be coming back.
