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.

Previous visitors' comments about Bluebell Cottage:
Good area for walking and touring round the pretty villages. Nice quiet location and could not hear any noise from adjoining properties.
Mr & Mrs Underhill, Ipswich, September 2012
The cottage was central to visit the sites of Dorset and Somerset. A great deal of thought had been given to make the cottage comfortable and homely, particularly the night lights which we found to be essential.
Mrs Domakin, Oldham, September 2012
Comfortable warm and near lots of areas of great interest, coastal and country. Very pleased with our second Sykes holiday this year, one more to go. Weather wasn't good so it was especially nice to have 'our' cottage to come back to each day. Home from home.
