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.

    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

    This cottage is beautifully situated but is desperately in need of updating and brought into the new century....... the owners are welcoming, its surrounded by some amazing walks, however it really needs gutting, a shower fitted (I don't want to shower using the supplied kitchen jug) new hygienic kitchen needs to be installed - carpets need replacing!

    A nicely presented historic property located off the beaten track that provides a quiet sanctuary for a lovely holiday away from it all. Accommodation is small (as described) but perfectly adequate for 2 people (plus a pet, apparently, if required).

    A charmingly attractive and interesting location. The cottage was small but very cosy and comfortable for two people. The owners were very friendly and helpful.

    A very cosy cottage in beautiful location of abbey grounds. Would have found a cafetiere useful!
