    “The cottage was very nice, however, it would have been helpful to have instructions on how to work the heating system as we had to suss this out for ourselves on the first night as the owners were not available.”

    Also there was no instructions about rubbish - what could and could be recycled as this does vary from place to place. Nowhere to put dog poo bags and no liners for bins in bathrooms, bedrooms. A bit more information about the cottage and facilities would have been helpful.

The property

Set behind the owners’ ancient farmhouse, and sensitively converted from a 300 year old stone barn, Droop Farm Cottage has plenty to offer a group of family or friends seeking to get away from it all. You will be impressed by the elegant and homely feel throughout, with the exterior stone work representing everything that is quintessential about small, English cottages.

The small windows and slate roof really add to the character, with the interior carefully thought out to provide the best experience for visiting guests.

The décor and soft furnishings give a sense of continuity as you pass through from room to room.

Outside, there is plenty of room to explore as well as space to sit and admire the views which stretch off into the distance towards Bulbarrow Hill.

If peace and privacy are high on your list then this is a perfect choice for your holiday. The three bedrooms are spread across both floors; the first of the double beds is located on the ground floor, while the second double room and third twin room are on the ground floor.

One family bathroom can be found on the first floor, hosting bath with separate shower, WC and Basin.

About the location

HAZELBURY BRYAN

Sherborne 10 miles; Yeovil 15 miles; Bournemouth 25 miles

A tranquil, rural village sat just outside of the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Hazelbury Bryan is a small, traditional village with thatched buildings, a parish church dating back prior to the 15th century and a popular pub that was built in 1750, it also boasts a Spar shop. In the village there is also a field with cricket and football facilities as well as a children's play area. Hazelbury Bryan proves itself to be a great base for exploring the outdoors with the Dorset and Cranborne Chase Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty easily accessible, offering great opportunities for walkers and cyclists with great views to accompany it. The village is rather secluded, with the nearest well-stocked town being Sherborne 10 miles away, it offers a good selection of shops and places to eat. If you fancy a trip to the coast, visit Bournemouth around 25 miles south, a delightful town with so much to see and do.
