Duntish is a small rural community situated on the B3143 which leads from Dorchester to Sturminster Newton and is adjacent to the attractive village of Buckland Newton. The village, through which the Hardy Trail and the Wessex Ridgeway run, is located at the head of the quaintly named Piddle Valley in the glorious West Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. A visit to nearby ancient Cerne Abbas is not to be missed, with its instantly recognisable chalk giant and numerous tea rooms and selection of inns serving real ales and good food. Alternatively, travel south to the memorable Dorset Jurassic Coast, now designated a World Heritage Site, where many sandy beaches including Weymouth provide visitors with great facilities for all kinds of water sports or explore fascinating Sherborne or Thomas Hardy’s Dorchester, both a short drive away. This area is close to so many interesting locations you really are spoilt for choice!

Two charming semi detached holiday cottages found on the owners’ small holding 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 Giant, the figure cut into the chalk downs, is a must-see.

Previous visitors' comments about Brook's Cottage:
The area was beautiful and the cottage delightful. The owners were very welcoming and explained all about the cottage and the various walks for our dogs. Comfortable beds and furnishing and a safe enclosed area for children or pets. A really good base for exploring the coasts and inland area. Would certainly stay there again.

We all really enjoyed our few days away, in a wonderful countryside setting.
Mr Goff, Havant, March 2013
The cottage had everything we needed. There was an enclosed patio area which was great for our cat. The cottage is quite spacious. Plenty of parking space. Nice Pony, Chickens and Ducks in the farm. Well decorated, a farm house feel to the cottage with exposed beams.

Location, hosts, property and facilities. Fresh eggs from the farm - the horse, pony, goose, chickens and not forgetting the ducks.
