    “Lovely cottage, very quiet, very comfortable bed, good quality bedding, shower and kitchen equipment, slightly let down by poor television.”

    Interesting area with lots of good dog walks. Dog friendly pub just across the road serves good food.

About the location


Shaftesbury 3 miles; Salisbury 22 miles; Stonehenge 23 miles

The thriving village of Motcombe lies on the edge of North Dorset’s Blackmore Vale, just 3 miles from the ancient hilltop town of Shaftesbury. Motcombe has its own friendly community shop, post office and well-regarded country pub, The Coppleridge Inn. The local town of Shaftesbury, with a good range of shops and inns, is perched on a spur of rolling green hills with spectacular views reaching far across the rural landscape. One of the best vantage points is from Gold Hill (instantly recognisable as the setting of the iconic Hovis advert with its quaint, cobbled and very steep street. Motcombe sits amidst rolling countryside at the edge of the picturesque Blackmore Vale, and close to the Cranborne Chase AONB as well as many other areas of natural beauty and exceptional heritage, including the National Trust’s Stourhead. A wonderful location to explore the best of the West Country, and only just over an hour’s drive to the stunning Jurrassic Coast.
