This property boasts a prime location for enjoying the peace and quiet of the English countryside and the many wonderful offerings of Dorset and Somerset just a short car journey away. Located on the border of these two majestic counties, you’ll never find yourself short-changed when it comes to rewarding walks, stunning scenery and charming towns to be enjoyed close by. Perfectly appointed for two to stay, look forward to a romantic break with your nearest and dearest in this truly rural location.

This lovingly updated barn conversion can be found on a 13-acre estate belonging to the owner, with two further properties available to rent for larger groups, and the owner’s fascinating horse-drawn vehicle collection sat waiting to be explored. Step inside and discover a pretty, open-plan living space with lounge, diner and kitchen – more than enough space for two. Romantic meals can be enjoyed inside or out on the private patio, whilst an evening spent in front of the TV in the lounge will certainly not go amiss. Completing the property is a generous king-size bedroom with en-suite on the first floor, an inviting space for catching forty winks.

Located just 3 miles from local Gillingham and 7 miles from the town of Shaftesbury, this property enjoys a truly secluded location with amenities close by. Venture into the Cranborne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) (8.5 miles) to discover an abundance of walking routes and versatile landscapes, or take a trip south to the Dorset AONB (22.5 miles) with its glorious coast (33.5 miles). Somerset’s ever-charming tourist spots of Glastonbury (24 miles) and Frome (18 miles) are easily accessible by car, along with the nearby city of Bath which rarely fails to disappoint its first-time visitors (30 miles).

The cottage was very clean through out with cleaning supplies left for us to use if needed. The cottage had everything we needed for the week and was very comfortable to stay in. The location was very nice and the cottage had lovely views too. We had an amazing holiday and would highly recommend staying at Cobble Cottage.
