Set in a peaceful spot with easy access to pretty Sherborne and Shaftesbury, this charming studio is an ideal bolthole for two and boasts a private garden with barbeque and countryside views.

For those in search of adventure, this lovely romantic retreat is the perfect base from which to stroll through Sherbourne's honey-coloured streets, climb Gold Hill for the majestic views from the summit and dine to your heart's content at the local cafes, pubs and restaurants. At the end of the day, return home to this cosy single-level property, kick back and relax with your loved one by your side under the pergola-covered terrace.

Set out in a studio–style, this quirky living space has a small sofa for two where you can sit and watch a film on the Smart TV, a modern kitchen with all you could need to whip up a feast and a table for two for sharing stories and memories over breakfast, lunch or dinner. Thoughtful touches, such as the dividing wall which offers a clever storage solution, make the property feel like home, with pastel tones and natural wood throughout. Behind the dividing wall is the double bed, enjoying pretty views out to the countryside beyond; a perfect view to wake up to each morning. To refresh before or after a day out, the shower room has a spacious double shower with a rainfall shower head for added relaxation. Outside, there is a beautiful terrace with bistro-style seating where you can soak up the sunshine with your morning coffee in hand. Whilst around the corner, an additional seating area and charcoal BBQ are best suited to evenings of al fresco dining.

From Blackmore Vale, there are plenty of picturesque walking trails right on your doorstep allowing you to spend the day car-free if you wish. On-site at Coking Farm, fishing activities can be booked at an extra cost with more than 33 acres to explore and a tackle shop offering supplies and snacks. Further afield, Sherbourne (9 miles away) has two grand castles and an imposing abbey, whilst the market town of Shaftesbury (7.5 miles) offers a look back at the past and is a charming place for a leisurely stroll surrounded by cobbled streets and awe-inspiring landscapes.

Clean, comfortable, small (obviously for a studio) - just manageable for hubby, myself and a big dog! Cake and wine were very welcome.

Ideal spot for hubby and I plus our dog. The studio was clean and was well stocked in terms of kitchen equipment etc as well as things such as milk, coffee and tea bags. The accommodation was very quiet and peaceful with lovely country views and there was a very pleasant dog walk close by. We greatly enjoyed our trips into Shaftesbury approx 6 mileRead mores away, also Sherborne and also Lyme Regis was worth a visit. We would definitely stay again. Hide

The Studio was an enjoyable stay for the 2 of us plus our beagle. Very well equipped and cosy and clean. Beautiful to arrive to cake and biscuits and milk. The wine was good also! Our week away was enjoyable. Central for exploring. Nice to have the enclosed garden for the dog. Good option to bbq!
