Property Information

Homelea offers guests a very comfortable and attractive base from where they can really get to know this unspoilt part of rural Dorset. With bags of original features and plenty of charm, the cottage has been sensitively refurbished and modernised.

Once inside the front door you'll be surprised by the amount of space there is to unwind in - the lounge and master bedroom in particular are huge. The decor is light and the furnishings are a real mix of traditional and contemporary, a nod to the cottage's past whilst at the same time ensuring guests have all the modern comforts expected from a 21st century home.

Step outside onto the attractive patio and you'll find a garden table and chairs, nestled under a stunning, wisteria-clad pergola - a lovely spot to take it easy after a busy day.

Map & Local Information

It might feel like time has stood still in this unspoilt part of Dorset yet despite the tranquility there are dramatically contrasting landscapes all around as well as access to numerous activities and sights in the area.

Explore the banks of the River Stour as it passes through the low lying Blackmore Vale and experience the magnificent views from Dorset's great chalk ridges, Hambledon Hill, Win Green, Bulbarrow and Melbury Beacon. Nearby towns include theancient Saxon hilltop town of Shaftesbury (6 miles)and the Georgian market town of Blandford (13 miles).

Slightly further afield, it's worth spending a day discovering  the Dorset World Heritage coastline, just a 30-40 minute drive to the south while the cathedral city of Salisbury is less than an hour away by car.

Marnhull itself offers easy access for walkers onto the long distance footpath The Hardy Way which takes in many of the locations Thomas Hardy used in his novels (Marhull is the village known as Marlott in Tess of the D'Urbervilles). You'll also find a useful range of local shops and two pubs.
