Situated in the peaceful village of Briantspuddle, this quintessential thatched cottage will get tails wagging at its original features, including gorgeous exposed beams and vaulted ceilings. With two bedrooms, this is the perfect property for families and their four-legged members to share a relaxing holiday exploring the beautiful Dorset countryside. Enjoy walks from the village to Tolpuddle along quiet country lanes and bridleways. Further afield, the wonderful dog-friendly beaches of the Jurassic Coast are just a short drive away.
This charming grade II listed converted stables boasts luxurious accommodation you’ll go barking mad for. Step through the stable door into the entrance hall where there is plenty of space to wipe clean muddy paws. Prepare tasty meals in the well-equipped kitchen which comes with everything you need to make your stay a home from home. Step through the archway to the impressive lounge/diner with decorated beams and windows filling the room with natural light. Sink into one of the inviting sofas and relax with your hound curled up on the rug in front of you. There are two bedrooms within the property, a pretty twin bedroom on the ground floor and a super king-size bedroom upstairs with en-suite shower room. Remember to pack your pet’s favourite bedding so they get a good night’s sleep too. Stepping outside, your canine companion will enjoy investigating the fully enclosed garden as you dine alfresco.
Enjoy riverside rambles along the tranquil banks of the River Piddle that runs through the village, taking leisurely ambles and dipping paws in the shallow waters. Explore the gardens of Clouds Hill (2.5 miles) and see the tiny home of T E Lawrence, better known as Lawrence of Arabia. See the colours constantly change at the stunning Blue Pool (9 miles) surrounded by 25 acres of woodland and heath for you to sniff out the best route through. Transport your hound back to the prehistoric era with a trip to The Dinosaur Museum in Dorchester (10.5 miles) where they can come paw to claw with life-size replicas of these giant creatures.
