Winterborne Whitechurch, 5 miles from Blandford Forum, is one of eight Dorset villages in this area, which take their name from the seasonal stream which runs from springs high up on the chalk downs, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, offering glorious walks and superb views.

Within 3 miles is the charming village of Milton Abbas, with its neat, whitewashed thatched cottages, and splendid Benedictine Abbey, a sight not to be missed. Take a visit to the bustling market town of Dorchester, only 12 miles away, home of renowned Thomas Hardy; his birthplace at Bockhampton is also well worth exploring! Within an easy drive lies the stunning Jurassic Coast, with glorious sandy beaches at Weymouth and Swanage, dramatic Chesil Beach and Lulworth Cove and wonderful cliff top walks along the South West Coastal Path.

Previous visitors' comments about Damson Cottage:
The location, away from roads etc made it particularly peaceful.
Mr Coils, Hartlepool, November 2012
This was our second visit to Damson Cottage and it was equally enjoyable as our first. The cottage is well equipped, nicely furnished and is in a peaceful location. There was plenty of room for the 5 of us that stayed.
Mr Wilkinson, Fareham, October 2012
Beautiful, spacious house in a perfect location. It had everything we needed and more. The surrounding countryside was stunning and we found some lovely walks straight from the front door. it is definitely the best house we have ever stayed in. In fact, we loved it so much, we didn't want to go home!
