Set in a rural location in north Dorset, close to the Wiltshire/Somerset border, this 19th-century cottage of local stone has been extended, retaining character and charm. Within an easy drive one can enjoy the quaint, character abbey town of Sherborne, or the Saxon hill-top and market town of Shaftesbury, both with restaurants and shops, or have days out visiting attractions such as Longleat House and Safari Park, Stourhead house and garden and memorable days at either the Yeovilton Fleet Air Arm Museum or Haynes International Motor Museum with its wonderful selection of classic cars. Inland explore Glastonbury with its famous Tor, Cheddar Gorge, the cathedral city of Wells and the beautiful Georgian city of Bath with its famous Roman baths, pump room, museums and shops.

There are many historic houses to marvel at, attractions to take the family to and if you wish, just simply enjoy wonderful country walking, pubs for wining and dining, maybe golf nearby or even a day at the Wincanton races.

    A lovely house with a beautiful garden. Well equipped. Plenty of room for our party of 8. Only downside was the dishwasher was out of order and the fridge had been left very dirty. We had to clean it throughly before we could use it.

    Brook Cottage is a delightful holiday home. I would recommend it to any group/ family looking for a well equipped, clean and comfortable house. Books, games, DVDs, a slightly out of tune piano - everything we could possibly need. A welcoming bottle of wine - one of the little touches that we really appreciated and we left the cork on the kitchen rafter with all the others! The large garden is great for children. T

    We had a lovely week, despite the weather being wet pretty much every day. The cottage is lovely; spacious but homely and well equiped. The garden too is wonderful. I would have no hesitation in recommending Brook Cottage.

    We loved the cottage, we dropped the comfort and equipment down to a 9 as we struggled with the rayburn, although looks nice and fits in with the cottage, would prefer more modern heating. The photo's don't do the cottage justice, it was better than expected and the size of the cottage was a surprise. (bigger than expected) The garden is beautiful, we have 2 young children and 2 dogs, and they loved being in the garden as it was so big. It would have been slightly more relaxing for us if the brook had more fencing/barrier, as we were concerned the dogs could have crossed and got in with the sheep. However the cottage does advertise the brook at the bottom of the garden. We had no issues with the trains (complained about in previous reviews) as they are far enough away not to bother you, but the kids loved spotting them in the distance. We loved the fact that you are completely detached from any other property, the feeling of being right in the countryside is Brook Cottage's charm. There are two pubs close by, one in walking distance both are in the welcome book and we would highly recommend them. We are planning our next visit to the cottage, hopefully in the nicer weather to appreciate the full layout/charm of what Brook Cottage is all about.

    Brook Cottage is a really beautiful, spacious and well furnished cottage. However, we chose the cottage because we could take our dog and I feel that this is not a suitable property to take a dog. There is a small brook that borders one side of the garden (which is stated in the description) but across the brook is a field full of sheep and a very large bull. The fence that should be between the brook and the field has been flattened by the bull and we didn't feel safe letting our dog into the garden with the bull just the other side of the brook. Also, the public footpaths in the vicinity of the cottage were often fenced off or inaccessible. This cottage is perfect as a family retreat, but not a good base if you have dogs and would like to be able to walk directly from the cottage.

    Excellent cottage for family break. Great countryside location, so super dog walks. Sunday lunch at village pub was amazing. We all want to return very soon. Thank you to caretaker for excellent service prior to visit.

    We were very happy with our stay. The pictures do not do this properly justice. A little out of the way but a perfect location for us. Would recommend this property for sure.

    We had a fantastic holiday in Brook Cottage, 4 adults, one toddler and a dog, plenty of space for entertaining the extended local family too. Even in bleak min-November the cottage was perfect, with lovely wood-burners and the rayburn. The photos do not do this lovely cottage justice!! We would definitely book again :-)
