Description

The Stables is a characterful, bright property set amongst a working farm, and the shared games room is a fantastic addition to this property.

Situated on a 300-acre working sheep and beef farm in the beautiful surroundings of the north west Dorset countryside, and only 5 miles south of the delightful abbey town of Sherborne, these three holiday homes offer a great location to get away from it all. The Farmhouse (UKC2911), which sleeps up to twelve guests, and the smaller wing of the property, Churchill Cottage (ref DQR), which sleeps six guests, have an interconnecting door allowing for both to be booked together (sleeping 18 guests) or independently. Standing detached is The Stables (ref DSG) which sleeps five guests.

The Farmhouse and Churchill Cottage have interesting historical connections, having once been owned by John Churchill, the Duke of Marlborough and the highwayman John Clavell respectively. The Farmhouse offers its own games room with a pool table, and a dining area seating 18, although all three properties have use of a shared outside games room with a pool table, table tennis, table football and darts. The properties also have use of the coarse fishing lake, 100 yards away.

The properties are ideal for a family or groups who might wish to get away from it all, and their location lends itself for some fine country walking and cycling. Visit Sherborne with its abbey, castle, fine character shops, cafés and inns. Within easy driving there are also many historic houses, such as Montacute House and Gardens and Stourhead House and Gardens to name just two. For family outings Yeovilton Fleet Air Arm Museum and the Haynes Motor Museum, with its fascinating classical car collection, are worth a visit, and slightly further afield, the ever popular Longleat House and Safari Park is great for a day out.

The south coast resorts of Weymouth, West Bay and Lyme Regis, on the famous World Heritage Jurassic Coast, beckon, with plenty of water activities to enjoy, or going inland to south Somerset, one can take in the Clarks Village Outlet, Glastonbury Tor and the very popular Roman city of Bath with its many tourist attractions. Nearby, visit Cerne Abbas, famed for its chalk giant on the hillside, and just beyond is Dorchester, the county town with its many museums. Shop, pub and restaurant 3 miles.
Churchill Cottage (ref DQR), The Stables (ref DSG) and The Farmhouse (ref UKC2911) can be booked together to accommodate up to 23 guests.

    Very remote but we knew that when we booked. The road flooded one day and we had to drive round to find another way in.

    We spent a wonderful fortnight at the 'Stables' - perfect for getting away from it all yet only 15 mins drive to Sherborne.Would definitely recommend it to anybody.

    Had a lovely peaceful stay. It was a great base for us to explore Sherborne and the surrounding villages. We were house hunting in the area and would not hesitate to use the Stables again'

    Great to be staying on a working farm. A wonderfully relaxing environment enjoyed by all ages. Children love the toy tractors to ride on, collecting freshly laid eggs, visiting the cows, goats and donkeys and playing with the sheepdogs.

    A nice weeks stay using the Stables as a base to go off and do other things. I have a dog but had to keep him on a lead due to free roaming chickens and the farmers dogs. No closed off garden area. Very good for young children wanting to play outside. The house needed to be aired a little and would benefit from some new sofas. Family run working farm they happily showered us around and were informative. Generally a nice stay.

    Lovely family run farm, very friendly and welcoming. Grandchildren loved running around by the cottage, and being introduced to the animals. Lovely area to be in as a base.
