  • "The cottage was lovely & in a perfect setting."

    Very impressed with the property, I would suggest a different shower head as this was the only area that needed improving. The welcoming hamper was wonderful. I am sure we will book again, loved the decor & pictures & the kitchen clock was a delight. 100% recommend. Another excellent stay with Sykes.

  • "Very comfortable quiet spacious house with everything you require for self catering."

    A lot of thought has gone into the decoration and the chosen theme, right down to the pictures, cushions, lampshades and even the sheep egg cups! Although the weather was not suitable for us to use the garden I could imagine in summer it would be lovely. There are lots of walks from the house and with three pubs, a tearoom and a truly amazing village store which is open seven days a week, you are spoilt for choice. I recommend this property.

    On street parking is quite a small space if you have a bigger car but we found somewhere to park near the main road which was fine. Would definitely consider staying here again.

  • "What a beautiful home; just like a show home created by design experts."

    The colour scheme is so peaceful: the decorations are original and amusing. The cottage is situated in a quiet road with no problems about parking. It is only a short walk to the centre of the village and the excellent grocery shop and Post Office within. We appreciated the generous welcome gifts which gave us a wonderful start to our holiday. We were looking for a comfortable and relaxing holiday and the cottage was wonderfully situated to give us access to all the local attractions. The shop, pubs and café in the village were very convenient and made a nice change from cooking at home. However, cooking at the cottage was a pleasure and provided all the equipment that we might have needed. The cottage owners clearly knew how to make their guests welcome. It was clear from the beginning that we were not going to be disappointed. We will certainly hope to return to Blueberry Cottage in the near future and feel sure that we will once again enjoy a relaxing and revitalising holiday.

  • "We cannot say enough good things about Blueberry Cottage!"

    We were looking for a comfortable, cosy place to relax for a few days and we were not disappointed. It is very apparent that the owners have put a lot of thought into the comfort of their guests. We especially liked the calmness and serenity of the decor and the furniture with lovely touches around the place like snug throws and the the burner. We needed for no essentials when we stayed and very much look forward to returning.

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 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.

Dating back to Medieval times, the remains of the Benedictine Abbey, around which the village grew, can still be seen today.

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.
