Bursting with character, charm and style, this beautifully converted 18th century threshing barn will be hard to leave behind.

Surrounded by 150 acres of Dorset farmland, this eye-catching property boasts beauty inside and out. Sleeping four people across two bedrooms and welcoming your two dogs too, you can make the most of the surrounds and meander together through verdant countryside. With such a fantastic array of walks and trails nearby, padded paws and boot-clad feet will love discovering the area and meeting the farm residents. After the day’s activities, return to your private haven to relieve tired limbs and give into some well-earned R&R.

Like something from the pages of a magazine, this property carefully and stylishly combines rustic features with thoughtfully chosen decorations and furnishings. With an open-plan design and overlooking the farmyard, the stunning downstairs areas intertwine, separated by wooden pillars and open beams, whilst upstairs a second lounge can be found with a TV. For light snacks and family meals, the kitchen has everything you could need for tongue-teasing delights. Gather around the gorgeous dining table for an evening repast, or head outside onto the split-level, unenclosed decked balcony for a al fresco meals and drinks. Whether you are outside soaking in the sunshine or admiring the views from the comforts of the sofa, your dogs will be happy to relax at your feet and reenergise for your next walkies.

With a vast choice of footpaths and activities nearby, it’d be easy to spend your whole holiday exploring the immediate surrounds. For fishing fanatics, the owners have a private pond in a tranquil spot where you can fish year-round. 10 miles away, Cerne Abbas is definitely worth a visit, famed for being home to Britain’s largest (and most controversial) chalk figure at 180ft tall. 10 miles away in the opposite direction, the market town of Blandford Forum is home to shops and eateries, including a dog-friendly pub.

We have just spent the most amazing week staying in Cowslip Corner at Moonfleet Farm. This is without a doubt, one of the most idyllic, quirky, wonderful places I have ever holidayed at. The cottage itself is stunning, the surrounding views beautiful. The facilities are just second to none. There are fields for the dogs to play in, lakes to fish inRead more, a fantastic walk to the local pub (food is great!). But thats not all, there is also a fitness pool/jacuzzi (for a small booking fee) Hide

Cowslip Corner is a pretty well equipped cottage, it is located in the main farmyard so be prepared for some noise and smells, the owners were very helpful and attentive.

We had a great holiday at Cowslip Corner. The cottage is well equiped and in a great location to explore Dorset. The owners are great hosts and could not be more welcoming and helpful. They also allowed us to use their amazing new pool which was very kind. We would love to visit again and hope to do so in the near future.

We had a lovely week at Cowslip Cottage. It was well equipped with lovely big comfy beds. It wasnt far from everything we needed to see and do. Highly recommend.

Reviewed by Richard 17th May 2019

The cottage is spacious, warm, well appointed and comfortable. The area is quite remote and this means it is very quiet though this may not be quite the case when the camp site is in full swing. There are several nice pubs within only a few miles radius that serve very good food.

Cowslip Corner is outstanding! The Cottage/House is truly amazing with modern home from home comforts. The owners are friendly and welcoming as are their 3 resident dogs whom are also very friendly.

A great deal of thought and effort has gone into making the property a really great holiday cottage. It is comfortable and stylish and had everything we needed. Our only reservation is the lack of privacy. The glass walls of the kitchen diner look onto the farm courtyard and the campsite showers and toilets are right next to the kitchen. As the camRead morepsite was closed during our visit, this was not a problem but would be for us, and maybe others, during busy times. Hide
