Anvil Cottage is a cosy converted blacksmith’s forge, set on the owners’ working farm. Situated in a quiet hamlet, there are many footpaths close by, surrounded by wonderful countryside. The cottage, accessed by a rough track, is on a smallholding with a few sheep and cattle, dogs are welcome but must be kept on a lead. The rooms are large, with a cosy wood burner in the living room to curl up by after a day exploring, or you could sip a glass or two of wine whilst eating al fresco in the garden, or perhaps enjoy a barbecue.
There are many wonderful places to visit within an hour’s journey from the cottage, including Longleat, Farmer Giles Park, Monkey World and Bovington Tank Museum, which can all be reached in under an hour by car. Why not wonder at the Blue Pool near Wareham or hop over to Brownsea Island, Kingston Lacey and many other National Trust properties within easy reach? Nearby popular beaches include Weymouth, Bournemouth and Swanage and all three resorts have a variety of amusements, shops and cafés to keep the family entertained. Anvil Cottage is a lovely place for a most restful holiday in a very unspoilt region of England. Beach 21 miles. Shop 4½ miles, pub and restaurant 1¼ miles.
