The ideal spot for a relaxing break on the Dorset and Somerset borders, this pet friendly thatched cottage has an enclosed garden and is in a lovely village setting with pub and shop within walking distance.
Set in pretty Thornford village, this charming character cottage lies in an idyllic spot for walkers and nature lovers, as well as their four-legged friends. Perfect for couples or small families (there’s a sofa bed in the lounge), here you can enjoy everything that Dorset and Somerset have to offer, from the stunning Jurassic Coastline to the open countryside and its many footpaths and trails.
Steps lead you to the front door of the thatched cottage, which has been decorated in soft, muted tones and which has inviting soft furnishings to give a true homely feel. After a day exploring, retreat to the cosy lounge and unwind on the sofa in front of the TV or perhaps sit on the window seat and while away the day with a good book. An archway leads to the bright and airy contemporary kitchen/diner, while a winding cottage-style staircase leads to the comfortable double bedroom. Breathe in the fresh country air in the enclosed courtyard garden, which has a small lawn area where Fido and friends will love to play. At the front of the cottage there is roadside parking for several cars, subject to availability.
An abundance of pretty towns and villages are within easy reach, including Sherborne (4.5 miles) with its artisan cafes and popular restaurants, and Yeovil (5.5 miles) with its National Trust house and country parks. The cottage is virtually surrounded by Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with Cranborne Chase, Blackdown Hills, East Devon and Dorset all close by, offering picture-perfect settings and even more wonderful walking routes to discover. Pack the car for a beach day with your pups and head to famous West Bay (25 miles) or Abbotsbury (22 miles). Lyme Regis, known for its fossil finds, is further afield—34 miles from the cottage.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
