Attached to the owner’s farmhouse but accessed by a separate drive and through its pretty garden, The Granary exudes charm and peace from the moment you arrive, its bright and slightly quirky interior instantly welcoming the visitor. This is a true hideaway - peaceful, rural yet only approx. 20 minutes’ driving distance of Studland Bay, Durdle Door and Ringstead on the South Dorset coast. Five minutes’ walk away is the historic village of Milton Abbas which was created in the late 18th century by the architect Sir William Chambers and the landscape designer Lancelot (Capability) Brown at the behest of the then owner of Milton Abbey. There are fine walks and cycle routes close by, and time should be allowed, too, for exploring hidden areas such as the Sydling Valley and the many small villages with their ancient double-barrelled names. Prehistoric Bulbarrow Hill and the Cerne Giant should also not be missed. Slightly further away to the North East lies the beautiful Cranborne Chase, with Georgian Blandford, the Saxon hilltop town of Shaftesbury and the cathedral city of Salisbury all within easy reach by car.

The Granary has been converted with a great deal of thought and care, to charming effect. The two bedrooms, accessed by steep stairs (some care needed) are particularly attractive and the whole cottage is a wonderful place to which to return after a full day’s activity.


Entrance from garden into a small tiled hall. Light sitting room with window seat, double sofa bed for alternative sleeping and electric ‘wood burner’. Kitchen with elec. oven, halogen hob and breakfast table. Dining room (up two steps) with table and matching chairs. Bathroom with shower over bath and heated towel rail. Separate wc. Steep ‘paddle’ stairs with rail on both sides from kitchen leading up to two bedrooms, one with kingsize double bed and fine views to Poole Harbour in the distance, the other under the eaves, with 4’6’’ double bed.

Outside, the partly-walled garden with its brick path, lawn and climbing roses provides an intimate and sheltered space to relax and unwind. Barbecue provided.

Perfectly placed, beautifully furnished, wonderful host

Cottage is located in a very quiet part of a beautiful part of Dorset, very close to a lovely village. The cottage itself is amply furnished for a quick break, modern and clean. We were very happy here.

Guest's review on TripAdvisor, 07 September 2017. 5 of 5 stars.

Lovely welcome, super cottage - we have been sleeping like logs! A perfect base from which to explore this beautiful county. Loved sculptures by the lakes, fossil hunting and Charmouth, walks along the Jurassic coast and the woolly monkeys.

Jenny & Stephen, September 2017.

We had a superb week in a beautiful setting. Mark is a fantastic host - The welcome pack was so thoughtful!
