  • "South Lodge is fantastic, just a great place to stay for a holiday."

    It is beautifully presented and is equipped with everything you could want, and more. The listing doesn’t do it justice. The owners are very friendly and the touches such as having bread, milk, fresh eggs and a homemade cake on arrival were hugely appreciated. The location is good too. If you want to experience the best of Dorset, look no further. We cannot recommend it highly enough !

    Thanks Greg, It was lovely to meet you and I appreciate your kind words. Very uplifting, I hope you visit us again. Property Owner

  • "Perfect property, very accommodating, outstanding stay here and would highly recommend."

    We felt at home here and the small attention to details went far. We appreciated the information given in our pack of the property and location, the owners providing toiletries and cleaning products. We really appreciated the items in the fridge, eggs, bread and the baked cake which was delicious! Thank you. The area itself is picturesque, relaxing and quiet. We enjoyed day trips to the surrounding areas such as Somerset, Bournemouth and Weymouth which were all pretty straight forward to travel to using our satnav. Many thanks to the owners for a lovely relaxing stay which was a welcomed break from our busy lifestyle at home.

  • "We had a fabulous stay in this lovely Lodge."

    It was spotlessly clean, very well equipped and very warm and cosy (despite the cold weather). My husband had fun creating a real fire every day. The owners cater for your every requirement with information, books, games and wifi. Very quiet area and we loved to sit in the conservatory, when the sun was out, and watch the birds feeding. Delightful private outside seating area too. Kitchen very well equipped. We had a great stay and can't wait to return.

    Hello Dawn So pleased you enjoyed your stay. Thank you so much for your note…that made my day. Look forward to welcoming you again the future. Linda:). Property Owner

    Thank you for the lovely gifts of cake, eggs, milk, juice and bread! This house is very comfortable, with a really well equipped kitchen, and super bed linen. The outside area would be wonderful in warmer weather too, but we were there in February. There's a modern log burning fire, but the heating works well. One does need a car, but we knew that. Super place for visiting Sherborne, Dorchester,, Bournemouth or Swanage, along with many other towns and National Trust properties.

  • "Visited as a couple with with two more adult family members joining us for the majority of the week."

    We have all stayed in many cottages over the years but South Lodge rates with the very best of them in terms of facilities, comfort and the quality of fixtures and fittings, attention to detail from the owners was very impressive with comprehensive printed details, not to mention the beautiful cake provided when we arrived, together with milk, eggs, orange juice and tea and coffee ect, very impressive. The spiral stairs to the first floor bedroom proved a little tight for the largest member of our party but it made a great use of the space available. Although it's a bit of a drive from any main town the scenery makes up for this, we had done our homework first so issues. Hard to find any fault with it at all, to many lovely features to mention, I would not hesitate to recommend and would certainly return. Thanks for a great stay.

    I really appreciate your feedback and thank you for taking the time. It made a very delightful read and I'm glad you enjoyed my cake during your stay. I hope to see you again. Property Owner

    We took the upstairs room. We loved it! It’s so cosy. Had everything you need and more! Very clean. Lovely fire for the winter. So peaceful. Nice garden, considering coming back in summer to enjoy more! Very quaint little village with lovely people. The pub down the road is really nice. All the attention to detail made it a perfect little getaway for us. Comfy beds and linen. Lovely soft towels. Milk, eggs and bread for our stay. Logs for the fire. Lovely decor.

  • "Amazing Cottage in Hazelbury Bryan."

    My favourite place was the beautiful Conservatory, a fabulous place to sit and relax, read and enjoy the delightful Bantam Chickens. The decor throughout was stylish and classy and the property spotlessly clean. The sofas are extremely comfortable for a relaxing evening in front of the TV and wood burning stove. The kitchen is fully equipped and designed to a very high specification, just loved the sliding oven door. The bedroom is luxurious and the bed linen of a very high quality and the bed was the most comfortable I have sept in. Having everything on one level was a real bonus, we didn't need to use the twin room on the first floor. We had a lovely meal on the patio, in the sunshine for my husband’s birthday. Linda's homemade sponge, marmalade and fresh eggs were a delight and the welcome information pack extremely helpful. The Antelope Inn, just a short walk away is defiantly worth a visit, hope to be able to go inside on our next visit. Linda and Mark really have thought of everything, thank you. Everything about South Lodge was fantastic, would highly recommend you visit, we hope to visit again soon.

    In light of the current circumstances with coronavirus we were a little concerned about being away from home. The cottage was spotless and our minds were put at ease straight away. The owners had left a detailed welcome pack outlining all the cleaning that had happened and what precautions had been taken to make the house safe for us plus information about where to find things etc. We were also welcomed with a homemade cake, fresh eggs, milk and bread - all very much appreciated. We arrived late on the first night but the owner Julie did pop round on the Sunday evening to make sure all was ok. She maintained socially distant for the chat and it was lovely to meet her. We thoroughly enjoyed seeing the chickens in the garden everyday although if you don’t like chickens don’t let that put you off as they can be blocked from entering the garden if you wish. The cottage is beautiful and true to the photos. I would thoroughly recommend South Lodge to anyone looking for a quiet break away from normal busy day to day life.

    Thoroughly enjoyed my stay at South Lodge, everything inside the accommodation is of an exceptionally high standard and beautifully decorated. A lovely garden to sit in as well as outdoor furniture to relax on after a day out exploring. Met the Bantam Hens, who all have their own individual characters. I was left some freshly laid eggs, as well as a home made cake and a selection of other tasty treats, so thank you to Linda and Mark the owners of the cottage for those, a very kind thought. As a keen photographer, I would definitely highly recommend this cottage to anyone looking to stay in and around the spectacular Jurassic Coastal region, an ideal location to visit the outstanding beaches in the area as well as peaceful countryside walks and beautiful gardens to enjoy. South Lodge is somewhere you won't want to leave at the end of your holiday as you reluctantly hand back the keys.....

    It has been created and finished to a very high standard, to ensure a comfortable and luxurious stay. The garden view is beautiful, peaceful and rural, with both outside and inside seating facilities from the patio furniture or conservatory - depending on the weather. Inside, the décor is simply lovely, with very comfortable furnishings and beds, and good quality bedlinen. The extra upstairs washing/toilet facility was a real plus for us. The log fire worked very well indeed, and was easy to light and look after. We particularly enjoyed the peaceful location, yet within reasonable car journeys to a host of lovely towns and locations, such as Sherborne, Kingston Lacy, Blandford Forum and Weymouth. One certainly needs a car. The owners of the property live next door, and are very helpful and kind - providing a welcome pack of biscuits, tea, milk and so on. There is a shop in the village for other necessities, and we also used Sturminster Newton 5 miles away, for shopping and cafes. The TV worked well, including BBC iplayer and so on which was always reliable. The wifi also worked very well. We weren't able to get a mobile phone signal for making or receiving calls from the house, but this wasn't a problem for us. All together a super cottage and we would love to return soon. This was one of the very best self-catering accommodation we have stayed in, out of tens of cottages!

About the location


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.
