    This lovely, detached family home enjoys stunning views over private farmland, fields and valleys, and is peacefully located in a charming hamlet with a duckpond and historic church. Meadow Cottage has been tastefully and comfortably furnished, with light and spacious rooms, many of which overlook the super open views! The well-equipped, farmhouse-style kitchen opens out to the dining area, and the living room has French doors leading to the extensive lawned gardens. There is plenty of parking available, and many thoughtful personal touches throughout to ensure guests are made to feel welcome.

    Meadow Cottage makes the ideal base to explore the area, where there are many superb, scenic local walks through amazing valleys, farmland and woodland, with Ashmore Wood also close by. It lies on a popular cycle route, the Wessex Ridgeway, where various birds and other wildlife can be seen. Meadow Cottage is located in a beautiful part of Dorset, yet very close to the Wiltshire and Hampshire borders making it easily accessible for a whole range of sightseeing attractions and walks.

    Salisbury has Britain’s tallest spire, Europe’s oldest clock and one of the original (and best preserved) copies of the Magna Carta. Salisbury Cathedral, with its ornate beauty, draws people in from all around the world. Meadow Cottage is also within driving distance of the renowned Dorset coast, home to the World Heritage Site ’Jurassic Coast’. Other attractions close by include Kimmeridge Bay, Lulworth Castle and Cove, Durdle Dor and National Trust beaches such as Studland and Knoll beach. Shaftesbury is a small market town with a recorded history that dates back to the Anglo Saxon times. It is famous for its Gold Hill, made famous by the ‘Hovis’ advert, and offering superb views over the Blackmore Vale. Gillingham has a rich history dating back over 1000 years, and has enjoyed mentions in a great deal of literature, including the work of Thomas Hardy. The historic market town of Sherborne features two castles, and you can experience what it was like in King Alfred’s day by meandering around the abbey ruins, perfect for history buffs.

    Within easy driving distance there are some superb family attractions to enjoy, such as Old Sarum, an early settlement and an English Heritage Site, and Old Wardour Castle, which is a 14th-century structure set in gardens besides a lake. Within easy driving distance are Bath, Stonehenge, Monkey World, the Yeovilton Fleet Air Arm Museum, Haynes Motor Museum, Longleat House and Safari Park, and more. Stourhead House and Gardens is well worth seeing, as is Sturminster Newton, Poole, Bournemouth and Blandford Forum. There are scenic country walks in the area, fishing in the River Stour about 5 miles away, and golf at Rushmore, also about 5 miles distant. There are many lovely country pubs to discover in the area in which to relax, and wine and dine in! Sandbanks, Bournemouth, Poole Harbour, Dorchester, Weymouth and West Bay, known from the TV show Broadchurch, are all well worth a visit. Beach 22 miles. Shop 3¼ miles, pub and restaurant 2½ miles.

    "Lovely position,so quiet & peaceful."

    "Really good holiday in a lovely house.The only thing i would say for a house this size is it only had one walk in shower and then a family bathroom with low ceiling and hand shower. ( If there are older people this would bean issue another walk in shower needed).Very close to some lovely pubs and amazing countryside!!!!!"

    "Wonderful house....Clean, comfortable, homely and very well equipped cottage. We had a wonderful stay celebrating an 80th birthday...lovely welcome of fresh flowers, provisions, milk and even a birthday cake, which was a kind touch, thank you. Stunning views from the house and local area. All in all a great weekend :)"

    "We had a great time at Meadow Cottage. Perfect for our group of 10. Lots of space, comfy beds and beautiful views. Another shower (there are two, but only one you can stand up in) would be really handy. Communication with the owner was easy. Would happily return."

    "Wonderful stay in a lovely home. The mattresses were so comfy, and bed linen was really nice. Kitchen more than adequate, with a stylish, large living room & dining room. Great place for a family get away. Plenty of room for 10 guests! Would recommend."
