Contact details & location

Located a few miles from the market town of Blandford Forum, this holiday is well situated for many popular Dorset destinations including Milton Abbas, the Cerne Abbas Giant and Sturminster Newton.  There are many walking and cycling routes running directly from the property. The Jurassic Coast, including famous spots like Lulworth Cove and Ringstead Bay, is also accessible by car.

Our review of this holiday


There are four properties available, each sleeping four people in two bedrooms. Originally farm buildings which have been tastefully converted, the cottages and apartments have exposed timbers and brickwork and a wealth of character features, with all modern conveniences provided.  At least one of the properties has its own private hot tub.

For an idea of prices, a week long stay for a family of four during the summer holiday peak costs around £1100/week in one of the apartment properties, while a cottage for four costs slightly more at around £1270/week.  An off-season stay, for example in October, can be yours for around £720/week.


There are lots of child friendly activities sure to occupy kids of all ages.  Top of our list is a lovely indoor heated swimming pool, which guarantees a fun activity whatever the weather’s doing.

There’s also an indoor games room with pool table, table football, quiz machine, board games and books; a separate activity centre with badminton court and table tennis; and an outdoor children’s play area with trampoline.


There’s a gym, hot tub and sauna alongside the swimming pool, perfect for a work out or a spot of relaxation after a busy day out with the kids.

Parents who enjoy a spot of fishing will be able to make good use of the on-site coarse fishing lakes.

For easy evening meals, or an afternoon drink in the sunshine, there’s a village pub within walking distance.

WiFi is provided but pets are not permitted.


The prices here are very competitive for the variety and quality of facilities on offer. The accommodation isn’t perhaps as spacious as we’ve seen elsewhere, but nevertheless we think these family friendly cottages offer a winning option for those seeking an affordable Dorset retreat with plenty to occupy their little ones!
