    • “This was a late booking made at short notice. We were met on arrival at the property, shown around and made welcome. Throughout our stay the owners continuously checked to see if there was anything we needed and even sourced honey from a local bee keeper. We also enjoyed apple juice which is pressed and bottled on site. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to return again soon. This represented excellent value for money.”

    Mr Hume, Peterhead, October 2018

    • “The lovely family that run the cottage were so welcoming and helpful. They let my daughter help look after the animals which she thoroughly enjoyed! Plus they make delicious apple juice! Thanks again!”

    Mrs Steward, Tunbridge Wells, August 2018

    • “Owners were very friendly and helpful. Cottage really was cosy and quiet and seemed as though we were deep in the countryside while being close to a main road giving easy access to routes for days out. Would consider returning for another stay in the future.”

    Mrs Goddard, LOUGHBOROUGH, May 2018

Regional Information

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.
