    “The access road to the cottage is extremely narrow, our Auris car had just 12 inches clearance in places.”

    The cottage is spacious, the keysafe is quite low down to access and was difficult to open in pouring rain. The front door key is tricky to operate sometimes. The cottage is warm and the heating system very responsive.

The cottage is warm and the heating system very responsive. The cottage is ideally placed to tour the area, lots of National Trust properties nearby and Sherborne Abbey is well worth a visit.
