Welcome Cottages

A carefully curated collection of properties that offer high quality, good value accommodation in great locations across the UK, Ireland, France and Italy


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.

    Great place to get away from it all, good Wi-Fi but no phone signal. Coast is not too far away and we even went to the theatre in Wimborne one evening. Good range of National Trust places within easy reach but as everywhere in Dorset get used to the narrow lanes. Highlight was Stourhead.... Stunning. The dogs at the farm will want a quick fuss each day and hens may check out the living room. With donkeys and goats to feed it was something quite different.

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your comments. Sorry to hear you had no mobile signal we have not had this problem before all family members have good signals on their phones.

    We had a fantastic week at the stables with our daughter and grandchildren the owners were very friendly and gave us a tour of the farm which our grandchildren loved. We were quite a drive from the coast which we knew when we booked it but the cottage was lovely and the children loved playing outside after a day out, it was very safe for them. Would certainly stay here again.

    The Stables is a spacious, comfortable cottage in delightful surroundings making it the perfect place to relax and enjoy the beautiful weather we were lucky enough to have. My husband particularly enjoyed the fishing and says he caught the biggest fish of his life----he's 82! The owners were very helpful as when there was a power cut they took our kettle to the dairy where there was a generator to boil it so we could have a cup of tea! Thankyou for making our holiday so enjoyable.

    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.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your comments. We are sorry that you had this problem with the road flooding. We do provide clear road directions for all guests in order to avoid this.

    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.
