    “Quiet Corner Farm cottage is full of charm and, as its name suggests, is in a peaceful and delightful setting.”

    Going in mid-March the early Spring flowers made the garden look lovely and added to the ambience of the cottage's location. The interior suited our needs perfectly and the wood burner certainly made the evenings nice and cosy! The cottage is an ideal base from which to visit the quaint local towns and nearby National Trust properties. Peter, the owner, made us feel very welcome and, if something should arise at the cottage that needs his attention, he is usually to be found somewhere close ...

    Going in mid-March the early Spring flowers made the garden look lovely and added to the ambience of the cottage's location. The interior suited our needs perfectly and the wood burner certainly made the evenings nice and cosy! The cottage is an ideal base from which to visit the quaint local towns and nearby National Trust properties. Peter, the owner, made us feel very welcome and, if something should arise at the cottage that needs his attention, he is usually to be found somewhere close by tending to the orchard's apple trees from which he makes delicious apple juice! All in all this was an enjoyable and relaxing week in a comfortable and welcoming property.

About the location

HENSTRIDGE

Sherborne 7 miles; Shaftesbury 10 miles.

The little village of Henstridge can be found right on the border of Somerset and Dorset, at the head of the lush Blackmore Vale, used as the backdrop to Thomas Hardy's Tess of the D'Urbervilles. Surrounded by glorious countryside, Henstridge is well served by a shop, pubs, restaurants and a cafe and offers lovely walks accompanied by fine views. The village is ideally located for exploring Somerset, Dorset and Wiltshire, as within a short drive lies the historic town of Sherborne, famous for its abbey and castles, and once home to Sir Walter Raleigh. Close by are a wealth of National Trust properties, such as the stunning Stourhead House and Gardens, while the nearby hilltop town of Shaftesbury, best known for the picturesque Gold Hill, is also well worth a visit. With the beautiful cathedral city of Salisbury, Stonehenge, Bath and The Dorset Heritage Coast all easily accessible, this is a great base for relaxing and enjoying the delights of this superb area of the country.

Note: This property does not accept children under 4.
