The property

Child Okeford 2.2 miles.

Resting in the tranquil countryside settlement of Farrington is this charming ground-floor lodge, providing welcoming accommodation for a romantic retreat in the heart of Dorset.

Tiny Willow overlooks the owners vegetable plot with south facing fields beyond and boasts a snug accommodation, equipped with all the necessities needed for a self-catered stay.

Gather in the social hub for a quiet evening inside, making use of the contemporary amenities to rustle up a delicious meal for a date night on the dining table.

Film nights can be enjoyed on two armchairs, or curl up with a good book and a cup of tea as you enjoy the peaceful surroundings.

As the evening draws to a close, prepare for sleep and wash away the day in the sleek walk-in shower before escaping to the inviting double bed after a fun-filled day of adventure.

Enjoy a spot of alfresco dining on your own private courtyard, admiring amazing views of rural countryside as you relish in the smell of the barbecue cooking.

Amenities to keep you stocked up during your stay can be found in the village of Child Okeford, home to an organic farm shop and two welcoming pubs if you fancy an evening meal out with an alcoholic beverage.

More amenities for your choosing await at the bustling market town of Blandford Forum, boasting a wealth of shopping facilities, pubs, and a local brewery, as well as an array of culture throughout its Georgian architecture and Cavalcade of Costume Museum.

Alternatively, discover the hilltop town of Shaftesbury which hosts the renowned Gold Hill and Shaftesbury Abbey Gardens, or immerse yourself in history at Hambledon Hill, an Iron Age hillfort where you can spend a day of adventure roaming around the range of walking and cycling trails.
