Duntish Mill Farm

Two charming semi-detached holiday cottages on the owners’ smallholding in the rural West Dorset hamlet of Duntish, located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, close to the village of Buckland Newton. Situated between the two historic towns of Dorchester and Sherborne, these two West Dorset cottages have been cleverly converted from the original 18th century barn. The cottages have been equipped and furnished to a very high standard, with comfy bedrooms, modern bathrooms and a well-equipped kitchen, plus you can relax in your own sitting room at your West Dorset cottage and reflect on a wonderful day spent exploring this delightful region. Each of these West Dorset cottages has a private courtyard, plus a shared front patio as well as an attractive shared BBQ area across the drive, where the hens run freely. The area surrounding these West Dorset cottages abounds in lovely walks, including the Hardy Trail and the Wessex Ridgeway, whilst a trip to the famous Cerne Abbas Giant, the figure cut into the chalk downs, is a must-see. Thomas Hardy’s home town of Dorchester and his birthplace at Bockhampton are close to these West Dorset cottages and are well worth a visit, as are the castles and abbey at Sherborne, Monkey World and the Bovington Tank Museum. The stunning Jurassic Coast is easily accessed from these West Dorset holiday cottages, which provide an excellent touring base from which to explore this outstanding area.

A very peaceful part of the country with lots of places to visit within driving distance. The weather was fine for the time of year. The cottage although small had everything we needed.

Mrs Mitchell, Manchester, March 2014

Liked all of it - just a great stay with a very accommodating owner, in a beautiful area. Had 3 nights in Mulberry Cottage which has just been refurbished to a very high standard. Will definitely go again soon. Perfect for dog owners, walking and a generally peaceful break. Shop and good pub 10 minutes walk away.
