  • “The cottage is exceptionally well equipped, especially the kitchen.”

    The furniture was comfortable and the whole space was uncluttered, the master bedroom being exceptionally large. The standard of cleaning was quite outstanding. The position of the cottage away from the road and with good parking was a bonus as was the shop and post office less than a minute away being great for the morning papers. The many walks around this large village were pleasant and accessibility to the various National Trust Properties and small local towns meant we found plenty to do ...

    The furniture was comfortable and the whole space was uncluttered, the master bedroom being exceptionally large. The standard of cleaning was quite outstanding. The position of the cottage away from the road and with good parking was a bonus as was the shop and post office less than a minute away being great for the morning papers. The many walks around this large village were pleasant and accessibility to the various National Trust Properties and small local towns meant we found plenty to do without long journeys. The Crown pub as you enter the village was busy and friendly and the food was of a good standard and like Tick Tock Cottage is very dog friendly. We had a very good week, we would not normally book a cottage where the owners live adjacent but this proved not to be a problem, they offered us information made sure we were happy and left us in peace. I am sure that in the future a return visit to Tick Tock or odd nights in The Clock House B&B will be on the agenda.

Resting on the outskirts of the quaint village of Marnhull, between the majestic Dorset AONB and the Cranborne Chase AONB is this superb dwelling, Tick Tock Cottage.

The wing of the owner’s home is a wonderful base for a family seeking to explore the wonders of the coast and countryside of this part of England, with plenty of attractions and activities for a group of all ages and tastes.

After an action-packed day, be welcomed into the characterful interior, with a refreshing colour palette and carefully selected furnishings to ensure a wonderful stay.

The ground floor comprises of a sitting room with wonderful period features and a spacious kitchen/dining room where a woodburning stove housed by a redbrick fireplace takes centre stage before all the appliances you will require to cater your own delicious evening meals for the whole family.

After dinner, retire up the staircase to catch your rest in one of the well-presented bedrooms, comprising of a double bedroom and a twin bedroom which are served by a gleaming shower room and a further couple of steps takes you up to the master bedroom, featuring a king-size bed and a wonderful port hole from the original 1800s building.

During the summer months, head to the private courtyard where a spot of alfresco dining can be enjoyed or enjoyed or take a short stroll into Marnhull where you will find two pubs and a shop for picking up the essentials.

To keep you busy whilst here, head into the town of Shaftesbury or choose to walk many of the glorious paths upon the Cranborne Chase AONB or head to the coastline to soak up the spectacular scenery.
