    Set behind the owner’s home, both the Hayloft (ref UK10201) and the Granary (ref UK10221) are two, converted semi-detached properties, located in the simply stunning, Dorset village of Milton Abbas. Mid-way between the Dorset county town of Dorchester and the market town of Blandford Forum. The picture-postcard village of Milton Abbas with its 36 almost identical thatched roofed cottages, an Almshouse, church and local pub, were constructed in a Georgian gothic-style in the 1780’s, after the owner of Milton Abbas said the old location of the village was ruining his view from the abbey, and therefore the local village was moved to its current location.
    Milton Abbas hosts an 18th-century historic country fair every 2 years, where they celebrate the rebuilding of the present village. This event attracts thousands of visitors and is one of the key events in the Dorset calendar.
    Milton Abbas is in an ideal location for exploring the Dorset countryside and many tourist attractions on offer. Milton Abbey is open for visitors as is Athelhampton House and Kingston Lacey. There is also the world famous Cerne Abbas Giant. Just a short drive away, you can find yourself in the Dorset coastal resorts of Poole, Bournemouth, Swanage and Weymouth, all of which offer water sports, beaches, locally sourced fish and chips and Dorset cream teas. Don’t miss the unique and iconic geological Dorset coastline where you can find Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door along the unesco World Heritage Jurassic Coastline. Beach 17 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant ½ mile.
    These properties can be booked together to accommodate 4 guests.

    "The cottage was very comfortable and the owners were lovely so I didn't want to give Hayloft an unfavourable review . However the access up a steep staircase was difficult carrying luggage and I found it disconcerting not to have windows to look out of as all the daylight came from velux skylights. This might not be a worry for some couples and the accommodation was provided with everything you might need. The details only mentioned velux windows in the bedroom and I feel it should be made plain they are throughout the cottage."

    "Very clean and comfortable accommodation. Being picky a chair in the bedroom would have been useful as well as a table lamp in the living room but a good location for touring from."

    "We had a wonderful stay in the picturesque village of Milton Abbas. So many wonderful places to visit within the area and the cottage was beautifully decorated and well equipped with everything we needed for a relaxing and very enjoyable time. It's run by a lovely family who also own the pretty Tea Rooms at the front of the thatched cottage. Would definitely recommend a visit to taste their homemade cakes and scones."
