  • “This little cottage is lovely, tucked away on a small farm where apple trees are grown to make marvellous apple juice.”

    The two small ponies who adore apples and carrots, two hens and a small herd of sheep watch you carefully as you come and go past them each day.

    The two small ponies who adore apples and carrots, two hens and a small herd of sheep watch you carefully as you come and go past them each day. The log burner gives the lounge that real cosy feel on colder evenings. We really enjoyed our weeks stay in November and hope to visit again at some time next year.

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.
