A beautifully finished detached conversion situated in a stunning rural setting with fabulous far-reaching countryside views. The perfect choice for a quiet, romantic break.

This quirky property is the perfect rural hideaway for two along with a canine chum, located in peaceful North Dorset. Surrounded by rolling hills, you’ll be blown away by stunning views, scenic trails, and the sheer number of rabbits to sniff! Although tucked out of the way, you have excellent road links to nearby villages, sleepy hamlets and even the Jurassic coast. Fill your itinerary with exciting walks and day trips, returning weary pawed for a relaxing nightcap in front of a good film. The owner has even provided sofa throws so Fido can snuggle up too!

This impressive detached property stands proudly on the grounds of the owner’s home. Designed in true contemporary-style, all rooms are based on the first floor so you can enjoy panoramic views of the countryside. The open-plan living space is ideal for relaxing evenings dipping into a box of chocolates by the TV. Step outside for a delicious BBQ and a refreshing spritzer on the lawn whilst Rover safely explores the enclosed garden. At bedtime, there’s no greater comfort than sinking into crisp linen after a hot shower. Just in case you need them, washing and drying facilities are available via the owner.

Why not let Mutley take the lead and set off on a muddy excursion from your doorstep to the village of Spetisbury less than a mile away. There’s plenty to explore, from the banks of the meandering River Stour to a fantastic dog-friendly pub serving delicious meals. Alternatively, load up the car with all the doggy essentials to spend the day in Poole 11 miles away, a delightful coastal town bursting with character and attractions, offering boat trips to Brownsea Island to visit the elusive red squirrels!

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
