Hackthorne Farm

Situated on the Dorset/Somerset border on the rural outskirts of the charming village of Henstridge, these three single-storey cottages have been skilfully converted to offer comfortable, well-equipped accommodation, boasting stylish wet room showers (ideal for the less able) and views from the rear across the beautiful, surrounding countryside. The cottages provide the perfect base from which to explore the area and all it has to offer, with lovely walks and great fishing nearby, whilst quaint villages, the ancient towns of Sherborne and Shaftesbury, Longleat Safari Park and National Trust properties such as Montacute and Stourhead house are all easily accessible. A little further afield lies the wildlife park at Cricket St Thomas, the Haynes Motor Museum, the cathedral city of Salisbury, Stonehenge and even the Dorset Jurassic Coast, a sight not to be missed! A great touring base at any time of year!

The view from the living room was over a field was very pleasant and we saw some beautiful sunsets. All in all, I didn't want to leave and could happily have moved in permanently!”

About the location


Sherborne 7 miles; Shaftesbury 10 miles.

The little village of Henstridge can be found right on the border of Somerset and Dorset, at the head of the lush Blackmore Vale, used as the backdrop to Thomas Hardy's Tess of the D'Urbervilles. Surrounded by glorious countryside, Henstridge is well served by a shop, pubs, restaurants and a cafe and offers lovely walks accompanied by fine views. The village is ideally located for exploring Somerset, Dorset and Wiltshire, as within a short drive lies the historic town of Sherborne, famous for its abbey and castles, and once home to Sir Walter Raleigh. Close by are a wealth of National Trust properties, such as the stunning Stourhead House and Gardens, while the nearby hilltop town of Shaftesbury, best known for the picturesque Gold Hill, is also well worth a visit. With the beautiful cathedral city of Salisbury, Stonehenge, Bath and The Dorset Heritage Coast all easily accessible, this is a great base for relaxing and enjoying the delights of this superb area of the country.
