Sit out in the shared garden and enjoy a BBQ whilst admiring the countryside views here at Ruth’s Cottage – it’s simply great!

Converted to a high standard, these two barn conversions (Betty’s Cottage DWP, and Ruth’s Cottage DWQ) adjoin one another and are set on a working beef farm, which stands on the Jurassic seam. Offering peace and tranquillity, the setting is a delight for countryside lovers with wonderful open views to be enjoyed from the shared garden and barbecue area. Many footpaths lead from the farm and nearby lanes. The properties are set in the heart of Tamara Drewe country with some of the filming from the farm. The popular village of Evershot (Hardy’s Evershed in Tess of the D’Urbervilles) is 2 miles and offers a village pub, bakery, and hotel restaurant. Bridport and Dorchester are all a short drive away and offer individual shops, pubs and tea rooms. The Jurassic coast is 15 miles. Shop 2 miles. Note: Betty’s Cottage DWP and adjoining Ruth’s Cottage DWQ are ideal for larger family holidays or group breaks and may be booked together to sleep up to 12 people.

    Great cottage! We only stayed for the weekend but the owners were very welcoming and friendly. Couldn't rate the 'local amenities' very highly as there were none but we were very happy about that - the perfect location to get away from civilisation and a bit of peace and quiet!

    We loved our stay at this beautiful cottage. Tom and Margaret are very welcoming and informative and will be available should you need to ask any questions about the area or the cottage as they live across the way but are no way intrusive. tom showed us the cows and calves and Margaret told us what was nearby to visit. It is only a couple of miles from the main road through to Dorchester or the other way to Yeovil. We wanted to visit Monkeyworld which was about 30 miles away, a nice easy drive on good roads, we also visited Poole, Weymouth, Lulworth Cove, Tyneham village, Bovington Tank Museum, Compton Acres and West bay at Bridport so loads to do in the area. It is also close to Somerset so will return to go in that direction. We were very comfortable and had all we needed for a self catering stay although you have to travel a few miles for shops. The views from the cottage are lovely and it is very peaceful. We were originally at another cottage but had to move due to a water leak at another property and the water to our cottage had to be turned off. Cottages4you dealt with this very efficiently and contacted us while we were at the Tank Museum, made sure they got us a suitable property to move to which was this lovely cottage so a good move for us. Margaret, with very little notice had everything ready and waiting. Bettys cottage next door was lovely too as she showed us round it, very suitable for the less abled.
