The detail

Standing behind ivy-covered traditional stone walls and beyond large cast iron gates, pretty Stable Lodge is a luxurious retreat ideal for those seeking a peaceful place to unwind and explore lovely Dorset. Constructed in 1860, the former stables have been thoughtfully renovated to maintain original aspects, including brick flooring and timber beams, while incorporating modern features which ensure guests have a luxurious experience throughout their stay.

From the moment visitors step into this warm, welcoming property, the stresses of everyday life melt away. Kick off your boots and take a moment in the living room where two comfy sofas are positioned opposite the cosy wood burner and patio doors open out onto the lovely, private garden. Textures has been used to great affect throughout, from the brick floors to wooden panels and exposed pebble walls. Soft furnishings are luxurious and comfortable and there are some lovely personal touches such as the saddle lying on a beam and charming silver hare door hooks to hang outdoor gear.

Step outside and take in the fresh country air and admire the pretty borders, a few steps lead from the garden to the seven acres of meadow and forest which the owners encourage their guests to explore for the wonderful views of the nearby Vale.

Back to The Lodge, and guests can rustle-up a dinner in the well-equipped kitchen. A large, range-style oven, freestanding SMEG fridge freezer and Nespresso coffee machine make cooking a pleasure. A long carved wooden table with bench seating is waiting to be laden with dishes and plates, bottles and glasses.

There are two lovely bedrooms. A pretty twin room has beds which can be repositioned as a king-sized bed, a handsome wooden armoire offering plenty of storage space and the windows offer views outside over the garden. The magnificent master has a unique cast-iron four-poster super-king sized bed with crisp white linens, plump pillows and a thick duvet promising guests a good night's sleep. After a long day exploring pretty Dorset, fill the freestanding Copper bath tub with steaming water and lots of bubbles for a relaxing soak.

There is a further large shower room with rainfall style shower, stone sink and copper taps. Afterwards, wrap up in the designer bath towels and prepare for an evening at one of Dorset's many great pubs and restaurants.

The Ibberton is an easy mile away, it's dog friendly and does good food with a warm welcome. After an afternoon browsing the antique shops in nearby Sherborne, head to The Clockspire Restaurant for great food and cocktails. Enjoy a tour of the nearby Langham Wine Estate with lunch at the well-regarded Vineyard Cafe.
