Property Information

The Engine Room is a stylish detached property that has been imaginatively converted from the village's former fire station.  It is situated half way along the iconic and much photographed unique village high street of Milton Abbas. It's a beautiful, unique village founded in the late 1700's, within easy reach of the Jurassic coast, and many great attractions. The property 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 are plenty of wonderful walks from the front door of the cottage - woodland trails are in abundan ce and you can walk along the side of the lake to the abbey, or through the beautiful woodland to St. Catherine's chapel. 


The immediate surrounding area offers superb walking; there are footpaths leading around the lake to Milton Abbey, while a few miles away, Bulbarrow Hill at 900 feet offers magnificent views right across Wessex.

Conveniently located in the south of the county, Milton Abbas is within easy reach of the area's many attractions: the Georgian market town of Blandford is 7 miles away, the county town of Dorchester 11 and a beautiful stretch of the Jurassic coastline from Poole and the Isle of Purbeck to Weymouth is within half an hour's drive. Sherborne Abbey, the Cerne Abbas Giant, Kingston Lacy and Corfe Castle are among the many visitor attractions in this part of Dorset

"What a find. Just what we look for in a quirky holiday let. All the comforts of home provided. It was spotlessly clean. We we're within half an hour of the three circular walks we completed, one even started in the village so was able to leave the car. Found the postcodes on the information sheets provided for local attractions and amenities very useful for the sat-nav. Had a nice meal in the local pub too."

"Selected this property for a romantic getaway and were very pleased with what we found. Located in the building which once housed the village fire engine this property has been tastefully decorated and furnished making it both modern and cosy and the owner has obviously put a lot of thought into making her guests feel welcome with fresh flowers and milk, bread and butter all supplied. Our only criticism, if there was one, would be that it is a bit overstocked with crockery (how many teacups do two people really need?) and a little short on food storage space; but we managed fine for the week. Milton Abbas itself is a beautiful spot and the meal we had at "The Hambro Arms" on our last night was excellent."

"Wonderful, well equipped and comfortable holiday home in a beautiful and peaceful village. The owner was kind and helpful, and little touches like the welcome pack were very much appreciated. A great location.."
