Offering family holiday accommodation, this converted barn enjoys beautiful surroundings with many places of interest nearby.

Located in the heart of the wonderful Blackmore vale countryside, Bridles Farm Holiday Cottages are two Grade II listed, single-storey converted barns (refs 29954 and 29955) situated on a working sheep and beef farm. Ideally placed in an AONB mid-way between Dorchester to the south, the historic county town of Dorset and Sherborne to the north, with its beautiful abbey and castles, these charming cottages each offer good family holiday accommodation for four. Both have their own decked area, equipped with barbecues and outdoor furniture and the farm’s garden also has a pond with adjacent patio which is an idyllic place to relax and enjoy a glass of wine whilst looking out over the fields, spring being a particularly lovely time to watch the lambs playing. There are several bridleways and footpaths on the doorstep and the village inn is only a short walk where you can wine and dine or sit out in the beer garden and enjoy the sunshine. Places of interest locally include the famous Cerne Abbas giant carved into the hillside, the Fleet Air Arm Museum with its fascinating array of aircraft at Yeovilton, the Haynes Motor Museum for those with an interest in classic cars and Monkey World in Wareham. Guests can explore Weymouth, a family friendly sandy beach and home of the 2012 Olympic sailing, Portland and on to West Bay, Bridport and Lyme Regis, taking in the spectacular famous World Heritage Jurassic Coast and Chesil Beach. Venture into Somerset to Clark’s Factory Village at Street, Glastonbury Tor, Longleat House and Safari Park and much more – there is much to enjoy. Shaftesbury and Salisbury are also well worth a trip. Shop 4 miles, pub and restaurant 275 yards.

    Chris and Paul, the owners of Bridles Farm were fabulous hosts. Their lovely cottage was a peaceful home away from home with everything you could possibly need, with wonderful personal touches including a fabulous home-made sponge cake and a lovely welcome basket of goodies which very thoughtfully included some gluten free items for our son. The farm itself is located in a lovely peaceful setting with a great pub just minutes away. Our son had a fantastic time and loved all of the animals. It truly was an amazing, wonderful experience from start to finish. We have plans to return very soon!

    Once again the cottage was very well maintained, clean and Christine and Paul very welcoming. Very nice cake supplied, with other goodies. The road outside is busy so no walking from home - pub close by is good and on the light evenings OK to quickly walk there but not recommended when it is dark.

    We all loved everything about the cottage and location was good.The best we have stayed in by far. Very well presented,comfortable and spotless.The two lovely bedrooms have on-suites with excellent showers.Perfect for 4 adults. Everything we needed and more was there. The owners Chris and Paul were very welcoming, lovely friendly people.They provided a generous welcome pack and a delicious home baked cake. We were able to park right outside. The Hunters Moon pub is just along the road. We had some lovely meals there. We would definitely go back to and recommend Casterbridge.
