The Old Stables is a detached bungalow, situated in the beautiful countryside of Dorset, and with the quaint market town of Wimborne 4 miles away.

This delightful single storey detached bungalow, next to the owners’ home, has been thoughtfully furnished to provide a comfortable, well presented base to explore this popular area. The open plan living area has a comfortable leather corner suite and practical wood laminate flooring. There is plenty of wardrobe space in the bedroom, which includes a tiled en-suite shower room. Outside there is a lawned enclosed garden with sitting out area and barbecue. Across the lane is a direct path to miles of woodland walks, making this ideal for couples with a dog (or two small dogs). The local pub serving good food is only 400 yards away. There is so much to do in the area, Wimborne is 4 miles away, and is a quaint market town with a theatre, coffee houses, shops and inns. There are various festivals and fairs throughout the year too. Within easy driving distance are beaches (the closest being only 8 miles at Bournmouth or Poole) and also Sandbanks and Studland Bay. Also within easy reach are Poole Nature Reserve, Brownsea Island, and to the west, The Purbecks, Corfe Castle, and Jurassic Coastline. Moors Valley is a popular place to visit and is dog friendly, with scenic walks, and excellent wildlife spotting. There are many recreational activities, such as angling, orienterring, cycle hire, golf, Go-Ape Tree Top Adventure, Forest Segway, canoeing, and petanque. Avon Heath is nearby and is ideal for keen walkers. There are various fishing lakes (mainly carp) and golf courses in the area too. The New Forest National Park is easily accessible, and provides miles of scenic walks and a network of bridle paths and footpaths. There is a waterpark nearby and the charming town of Fordingbridge which has a host of shops, cafés and restaurants. Old Stable Lodge is convenient for road links to the cathedral cities of Winchester and Salisbury. Other attractions include Stonehenge, Marwell Zoo, Monkey World, Beaulieu Motor Museum, Bovington Tank Museum, New Forest Otter and Owl Park. Shop 1 mile, pub and restaurant 400 yards.

    Everything perfect, except the bed was too small.

    We really enjoyed our stay, unfortunately it was only for 2 nights. We found the owners very welcoming and friendly, however we weren't there long enough to get to know them better. 2 things would have made it perfect:- a little stool in the shower room and a small table in the bedroom to put watches, glasses and other items of jewelry.

    We had a very enjoyable week at The Old Stables, small but comfortable cottage. It is in a lovely area with fabulous walks & the local pub is very welcoming & serves amazing home cooked meals. The owners of the cottage were very friendly & helpful, the only thing I missed was a washing machine but I survived without one !! We hope to return for another holiday at this cottage.

    The cottage was clean, comfortable, reasonably equipped and fairly well situated. The road it is on is unlit with no pavement and can be very busy at times, requiring care when dog walking.

    The cottage was lovely, VERY clean, and well equipped. The bed was very comfortable. The garden which was fenced was perfect for our beagle. The bathroom was large with a wonderful shower. The only negative which is truly very, very minor was need to open and close the gate, but I would not want it removed as it is a safety factor. We plan to stay again in the future. And the fresh bread and lemon cake were most appreciated!
