The Cider Mill (Dorset) holiday home details

The Cider Mill is a charming cottage set in a quaint village location with many original features such as oak beams and a beautiful garden with stunning rural views.

Sleeping four guests with a cosy sitting room with wood burning stove and underfloor heating, and french doors leading outside to the external seating area which is perfect for al fresco dining. There is a spacious and well equipped country style kitchen and dining area with seating for four guests. On the first floor the large master bedroom has a king size bed, and a further twin bedroom sleeps two guests with a spacious family bathroom. Outside the cottage garden consists of a large lawn with a pretty patio area complete with furniture, and a barbecue. Ideally situated in a pretty North Dorset village and on the edge of the glorious Blackmore Vale with its quaint villages and market towns, the cottage is the perfect base for a family or group of friends wishing to explore this lovely rural area. The village of Motcombe has its own friendly community shop, post office and a well-regarded village pub within easy reach.

The countryside surrounding this Dorset cottage offers an abundance of lovely walking and cycling opportunities, with the nearby historic hilltop town of Shaftesbury providing an excellent range of facilities including an array of shops, cafes and good restaurants, as well as the picturesque cobbled Gold Hill of Hovis advertisement fame, and the ancient Abbey Gardens with their stunning views. Further afield, yet all within easy travelling distance of the cottage, are numerous popular attractions including the stunning National Trust house and gardens of Stourhead, Longleat House and Safari Park, historic Stonehenge and the great cities of Bath and Salisbury. This cottage provides an excellent base for exploring Dorset, Somerset and Wiltshire at any time of the year.
