    “The Perfect Holiday Cottage!”

    This is a wonderful holiday cottage! Looks beautiful from the outside and doesn't disappoint inside with everything you need provided. There was a welcome tray and a pint of milk to make a cuppa and have a biscuit when we arrived and some lovely flowers ...

    This is a wonderful holiday cottage! Looks beautiful from the outside and doesn't disappoint inside with everything you need provided. There was a welcome tray and a pint of milk to make a cuppa and have a biscuit when we arrived and some lovely flowers. Very comfortable and well equipped, there were three of us and we had plenty of room. There is also a lovely private garden with sun loungers provided and you can park easily right outside which in a village like Cerne is a massive bonus! The Owner is lovely and very helpful and provides lots of info on where to go, where to eat etc as well as all the usual instructions to make your stay enjoyable. The location is excellent being within easy reach of Dorchester, Sherborne and Weymouth. The Jurassic Coast is also close at hand. The village itself is your quintessential English Village with three pubs and an excellent tea room and there are plenty of walks to be had from the doorstep.. Highly recommended!

About the property

For a memorable holiday in an idyllic, Grade II listed semi-detached cottage, look no further than this very special former estate worker's cottage, set in historic Cerne Abbas, one of Dorset's most photographed villages.

Inside, you'll find plenty of modern creature comforts, together with the charming character of the original 1830 cob build, especially the exposed oak beams.

You'll enjoy preparing tasty treats in the impressive kitchen, which features rain-sensitive Velux windows, granite worktops, and a superb range cooker with induction hob.

Upstairs, there are two snug bedrooms nestling in the eaves, yet still with plenty of headroom for taller folk, and you've also the choice of a bathroom or shower room, as both are on offer.

Outside, you can spend time enjoying refreshments in the enclosed garden, a quiet place to relax after your day's adventures.

If you don't fancy cooking, take the short stroll into the village centre where plenty of local pubs, a tea room and general store await.

Cerne Abbas is probably best known for being home to the Cerne Giant, the much-admired iconic male figure crafted from the chalky earth.

The village features the ruins of a Benedictine Abbey, as well as several ancient picture-postcard cottages, some of which have been used as film sets.

For interesting days out, take the easy drive to the bustling market town of Dorchester, beloved by Thomas Hardy, and explore historic Sherborne, or enjoy Dorset's scenic Jurassic Coast.

This impressive thatched chocolate-box cottage offers visitors a special romantic holiday experience at any time of the year.

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.
