A pet friendly property ideal for couples and is part of the historic buildings of Cerne Abbey, formed as a Benedictine House in 987 AD.

This unique and enchanting property is part of the historic buildings of Cerne Abbey, formed as Benedictine House in 987 AD, overlooking the abbey courtyard with large gardens nearby. The abbey itself is privately owned, and guests can enjoy the grounds and wander freely. The property is in the pretty village of Cerne Abbas, famed for its dominating chalk carving of the Cerne Giant - thought to be carved in the hillside some 1500 years ago. Tucked away within the beauty of the Dorset Hills, miles of lovely walks can be enjoyed, including the village trail. Puddletown, Tolpuddle and Thomas Hardy’s picturesque Piddle Valley are within easy reach. Travelling further afield are miles of sandy beaches and some of Dorset’s Jurassic coastline. Shop and three pubs serving excellent food, 100 yards.

Living room with open fire/beamed dining room/old pine kitchen. First floor: Pretty, spacious, beamed double bedroom with lovely views east and west. Spacious bathroom, large corner bath and toilet.

    Lovely cottage in a peaceful, excellent location. Plenty of local walks allowing off-lead excercise for dogs.

    Lovely, relaxing break in Cerne Abbey Cottage. Very peaceful setting, with beautiful views over the Abbey gardens. Wildlife lovers will enjoy watching hares, rabbits, bats and many different birds from the cottage windows. Comfortable bed, huge bath and cosy log burner all helped to make the cottage a home from home. There are 3 local pubs just a five minute walk into the village, all serving good food. Also, there is a well stocked village shop just around the corner. The owners provided a warm welcome upon our arrival, and offered information about local amenities in the area. I would highly recommend this cottage and look forward to making a return visit before too long.

    The cottage was very comfortable although one or two improvements would have given a higher rating. There were no spare refuse sacks provided nor a saucepan scourer which is essential to properly clean equipment. The hot water is also dangerously hot. Theses are only minor points, the only reason we wouldn't stay again is because we have had a good tour round the area so would go elsewhere.

    The cottage is small, but set in a historic, unspoilt setting in peaceful rural situation. Cottage very well equipped. Owners welcoming and charming. Only downside was that the cottage did not have a shower - only a large bath which was very wasteful of water.

    Very cosy and comfortable cottage with everything you could possibly need. The wood-burning stove added to the cosiness. We had a very warm welcome and our hosts made sure we wanted for nothing. It was amazing being so close to so much history.

    We had a wonderful stay over Christmas. The hosts and villagers alike were so welcoming and friendly. We ate in the new inn which was beautiful. The cottage had all the facilities we needed and it was toasty and warm - our pug Elvis was made welcome and other than the village food/grocery he was allowed in most places which was perfect. As described the cottage is very small and cosy downstairs but we found it was not a problem for us. We both liked the fact that the decor was not the usual bland plain modern approach as this would not have suited the cottage, it was a shame that the lovely floral wallpaper had been removed you can still see a small section at the top of the stairs. All in all we will visit again hopefully in the summer x
