    “Beautiful location very peaceful to chill out.”

    Fantastic area of Dorset for exploring both East and West with the coast within 10 miles. The Engine Room was exactly what we was looking for and Sharon the owner was very welcoming on arrival.

    Thank you for your lovely comments, we are so please you enjoyed your stay at The Engine Room Owner relations

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 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 delightful retreat.

Relax and unwind into the evening curled up with your loved one in front of the TV, or gather at the dining table and pop open a glass of champagne as you enjoy a delicious home-cooked meal, prepared in the amply-equipped kitchen.

Discover one double bedroom, fitted with a range of furnishings for storing your personal items, whilst the family shower room offers a lovely marble tiled design and contemporary fittings.

Outside, 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!
