    “The Engine Room was small but that was expected, it was perfect for a short break for a couple wanting to get away from it all.”

    The property owner couldn't have been more helpful and friendly and once she had shown us around and pointed out everything we needed to know we had 100% privicy. We were only there for a couple of nights so didn't have too much time to explore, because of this it would've been helpful to have a map of walks in the area to hand in the property (those that could be done from the door step). The Abbey is a must to visit, the views are breathtaking. The local pub was welcoming and friendly though ...

    The property owner couldn't have been more helpful and friendly and once she had shown us around and pointed out everything we needed to know we had 100% privicy.

The Abbey is a must to visit, the views are breathtaking. The local pub was welcoming and friendly though the sample menu on their website didn't give a true flavour of the meals on offer. That said the food was perfectly ok and reasonably priced. We wouldn't hesitate to return to the property and will be using Sykes to find properties for short breaks in the future.

The property

Imaginatively converted and very stylish, The Engine Room used to be the village's fire station but is now a delightful thatched cottage.

Situated halfway along the iconic and much photographed unique village high street of Milton Abbas, it stands in the grounds of one of the delightful thatched white washed cob cottages which line both sides of the wide gently sloping street.

All the cottages are fronted by lawn and the village is flanked by woodland with a lake situated at the bottom end.

There couldn't be a more picturesque setting!

Once inside, you'll find warm and welcoming rooms all on ground level, perfect for a couple looking for a cosy retreat.

There are plenty of wonderful walks from the front door of the cottage - woodland trails are in abundance - and you can walk along the side of the lake to the abbey, or through the beautiful woodland to St. Catherine's chapel.

All in all if you're looking for total comfort and relaxation, plus plenty of walking opportunities, you won't be disappointed!
