“Single level accomodation.”
I booked the cottage after looking at the information on the Sykes cottages website. As I was travelling with my parents, one with mobility issues, I wanted a single level accommodation this fitted the bill. There are 3 cottages in a row and I found out before booking which would be best. This one is the furthest from the entry to the premises but that means you can park beside the flagstone patio area. The other 2 you can park beside only to drop someone out but the car then needs to be tucked ...
I booked the cottage after looking at the information on the Sykes cottages website. As I was travelling with my parents, one with mobility issues, I wanted a single level accommodation this fitted the bill. There are 3 cottages in a row and I found out before booking which would be best. This one is the furthest from the entry to the premises but that means you can park beside the flagstone patio area. The other 2 you can park beside only to drop someone out but the car then needs to be tucked back by the cottages to allow the other cars out. The bathroom is a wet room and a Mobray frame for the toilet and perching stool are available to use for anyone disabled. The only drawback for us was the twin bedroom was the opposite end of the property to the bathroom. My parents prefer twin beds to a double to sleep and the double I used was next to the bathroom. For my dad this was a distance to walk however this I am sure won't be a drawback for everyone. The property had everything we needed and the beds had comfortable mattresses. On the Somerset Dorset border so lots of places to visit within around an hours drive.

About the location
Sherborne 7 miles; Shaftesbury 10 miles.
The little village of Henstridge can be found right on the border of Somerset and Dorset, at the head of the lush Blackmore Vale, used as the backdrop to Thomas Hardy's Tess of the D'Urbervilles. Surrounded by glorious countryside, Henstridge is well served by a shop, pubs, restaurants and a cafe and offers lovely walks accompanied by fine views. The village is ideally located for exploring Somerset, Dorset and Wiltshire, as within a short drive lies the historic town of Sherborne, famous for its abbey and castles, and once home to Sir Walter Raleigh. Close by are a wealth of National Trust properties, such as the stunning Stourhead House and Gardens, while the nearby hilltop town of Shaftesbury, best known for the picturesque Gold Hill, is also well worth a visit. With the beautiful cathedral city of Salisbury, Stonehenge, Bath and The Dorset Heritage Coast all easily accessible, this is a great base for relaxing and enjoying the delights of this superb area of the country.
