This cottage was immaculately clean and lovely and warm! I know a lot of people love log burners, personally we dont so the central heating was a boon.. It's a small cosy place but ideal for two, brilliant location handy for so many locations! And tho it's very 'touristy' Stonehenge was well worth a visit...

It was a delight to stay here. For 2 people it is an ideal bolt hole, with the historic town of Shaftesbury only about 3 miles away. There is a 7/11 type store on the way into town and a large Tesco on the bypass. Despite being on a farm the cottage retains a fair degree of privacy and there is little or no sound intrusion from the farm.
