The views from the cottage are spectacular with the natural wildflower down lands to the front and rear of the property. The cottage has recently been completely refurbished and brought back to life.

The location means that both the south coast beaches and towns as well as the local market towns such as Sherborne, Shaftesbury and Dorchester are all within easy reach. The beautiful city of Salisbury is only twelve miles away and the historic city of Bath about forty minutes. Shaftesbury is only five miles away.

The village pub The Talbot provides an excellent place to eat or drink after a long walk across the downs or ox-droves and by ways.

Horses are welcome by arrangement.

Richard Pocock and Louise are farmers looking after a flock of 800 breeding ewes, as well as a tractor spares and storage businesses.

'The ideal location for Walking, Cycling, Riding, Sightseeing or just Relaxing in the Beautiful English Countryside'.
