Milton on Stour is a pretty little village north of Gillingham in rural north Dorset, and close to the borders of Somerset and Wiltshire. There are numerous NT properties and historic houses within a short drive, such as the stunning house and gardens at Stourhead, and Longleat House and Safari Park. Alternatively, why not try one of the plentiful rural walks in the area, or explore picturesque villages with country pubs serving real ale or cream teas? Further afield, visitors can enjoy the historic cities of Bath or Salisbury, whilst a visit to the wonderful Dorset Jurassic Coast is not to be missed.

Previous visitors' comments about Brook Cottage:
Well equipped and very clean cottage, pleasant and welcoming owner. Good location for seeing either Wiltshire or Dorset also close to Somerset providing you have your own transport.
Mrs Pepper, Harlow, July 2012
The property was first class. The area and the owners were very nice, and the countryside was outstanding. Good value for the money!
Mr Cooper, Canterbury, October 2011
The cottage is set in a beautiful location and is easily accessible to the places we visited.
Mrs Woods, Ashford, August 2011
The Dorset countryside was wonderful. The small villages were well kept and welcoming. I would highly recommend going to this part of England and staying at Brook Cottage, which was always nice to come back to.
