The property

Nestled in the picturesque village of Cerne Abbas, surrounded by unspoilt countryside, rests this fabulous holiday home, Blueberry Cottage.

This beautiful dwelling offers three bedrooms and is just a stone's throw away from breath-taking nature walks; a fabulous location to bring your family for a luscious holiday.

Be greeted by roadside parking, making loading and unloading your belongings an easy task and enter the front door into the kitchen /diner.

At the rear of the cottage you can enter into a handy porch, providing a great place to house your shoes away from the main living areas.

Unwind in the rustic living room, beautifully-appointed with a glowing woodburning stove and a stag painting hanging on the wall, reflecting the charming, rural surroundings of the home; escape reality in front of the TV as you snuggle up with loved ones.

Venture into the kitchen/diner, decorated with a glorious sage green interior, and make use of the amply-equipped cupboards and facilities to cook up a heart-warming meal, settling down at the dining table with your loved ones to indulge as your plan your thrilling holiday itinerary, taking advantage of all the exciting things to do and see in the surrounding area.

Dine outdoors on a summer's evening with a leisurely seat in the rear garden, immersing yourself in the tranquility of the peaceful village setting, and take advantage of the large lawn where you can lay out on a blanket to enjoy a good book.

As the evening grows dark, head upstairs where you'll find the delightful family bathroom, take a restful soak in the tub before retiring to one of the three thoughtfully laid-out bedrooms, with the choice between a king-size, a twin and a single, all three offering charming painted furniture to store your personal belongings, with the delightful twin room framing marvellous views across the rural landscape.

Explore the pretty village famous for its chalk giant on the hill and take a short stroll to the 3 historic pubs, The New Inn with its pretty courtyard, The Giant and The Royal Oak where you can quench your thirst with a pint of real ale or treat yourself to a delicious home cooked meal, or if you prefer, walk to the traditional village shop to stock up on local produce to prepare a hearty meal from the comfort of your holiday home.

There's plenty to see and do to keep you entertained during your stay, including the quirky experience of badger watching, or if that's not your thing, take a scenic stroll through the well-maintained gardens of Mapperton House, a striking sandstone manor, or spend a fun-filled day with the family at Kingston Maurward Animal Park and Gardens.

Historians may wish to venture to the town of Dorchester, known as the birthplace of renowned British author, Thomas Hardy, and home to eight fascinating museums and the Iron Age hillfort of Maiden Castle.

Within easy reach is the idyllic market town of Sherborne, resting within wooded hills and an abundance of greenery, where you can explore medieval architecture, discover the historic remains of two remarkable castles and the magnificent Sherborne Abbey, or dine out at one of the many restaurants that decorate the streets.

For an enchanting escape to the country, bring your family to stay at Blueberry Cottage.

About the location

CERNE ABBAS

Dorchester 8 miles; Sherborne 12 miles; Yeovil 16 miles; Weymouth 17 miles.

Cerne Abbas is a quintessential, picturesque village in Dorset, and oozing charm and character, it was once voted as Britain's most desirable village! Dating back to Medieval times, the remains of the Benedictine Abbey, around which the village grew, can still be seen today. Today, it's well known for the Cerne Giant, the 180-foot figure of a naked man cut into the steep chalk downlands, which dominates the surrounding landscape. Local facilities abound, including three pubs and a tea room, plus the surrounding countryside is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, which offers superb views and great walks. A short drive takes you to Dorchester, Sherborne and the Dorset Jurassic Coast. A truly fascinating area close to many places of interest at any time of the year.
