The Details...

Slow down, relax and unwind in the farmland, green fields and country lanes of one of the loveliest parts of England . The Bothy and Flint cottages are the ideal retreat for those wanting to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and enjoy some country living.

Located in rural Dorset, with beautiful cycling and walking trails on your doorstep, the properties make the perfect base to explore and discover all the area has to offer - whether it's the Jurassic Coastline, historic Dorchester, or the cosy local country pubs.

The cottages are situated on Launceston Farm, just several miles from the pretty market town Blandford Forum and each sleep two people in comfortable, stylish surroundings.

The Bothy is set over one floor, making all rooms easily accessible. The front door opens into a living area which has a well-equipped kitchen, dining table and a comfy sofa - ideal for cuddling up in front of the log burner after a country walk over the fields. The bedroom is bright and inviting with period-style furniture enhancing the character.

Flint Cottage is set over two floors, with a separate kitchen and a cosy living/dining area. The bedroom is bright and inviting with exposed beams and a pretty view of the farmland from the window.

Each of the cottages has its own secluded outside area which offer the opportunity to enjoy the sounds, sights and smells of the country from the indulgence of your own outdoor bathtub. Sitting in your private courtyard, you can convene with nature while washing away the stresses and strains of everyday life. Or why not take a night time dip and count shooting stars?

The cottages share a 12 metre indoor swimming pool and sauna, the swimming pool building has large floor to ceiling windows with gorgeous views of the farmland and some of its 500-strong herd of cows. Catering is available on request but there are many good pubs and restaurants to discover in the area, including the dog friendly Langdon Arms which is just a five minute stroll from the property.

Further afield, Dorchester and Salisbury are both around a 30 minute drive away and the Jurassic Coast, a UNESCO world heritage site, is also nearby. This stunning coastline boasts many lovely beaches including Lulworth Cove, Chesil Beach and Studland Bay - perfect for rock pooling, fossiling and paddling.
