    “Really lovely quaint cottage, well equiped, very good - stayed August 2017”

The property

Milton Mills is a beautiful thatched cottage located a mile away from the quaint Dorset village of Milton Abbas. A unique cottage with beamed ceilings and an inglenook fire.

With its surrounding garden it is perfect for enjoying the Dorset country sounds of bird song whilst eating alfresco.

Milton Mills cottage is actually two-cottages converted into one making it a unique holiday home suitable for family gathering or friends looking for a retreat to the countryside with children.

With a choice of activities and games for little ones including a wooden cot and high chair in the property with a lot of toys and outdoor games the children need never be bored. The two cottages are linked with an upstairs and downstairs passageway with two stairs to the first floor leading to all bedrooms.

The twin single room has a walkthrough spare double room with a wooden cot leading to another double room.

There is one bathroom on the ground floor and one shower room on the first floor for your convenience. Curl up on the sofa and enjoy a good read in the evening before retiring to bed or just think about the history of the place that dates back centuries.

If you enjoy exploring and getting to know a bit of history the village of Milton Abbas will have a few stories to tell.

Milton Abbey, the site of an Abbey since 933 where the current Abbey dates from around 1309 is around a half a mile walk from the village. Running through the centre of the village are rows of white-washed thatched cottages, stretching up the hill to the horizon and arguably one of the prettiest streets in Dorset.

A leisurely stroll up the hill will reward you with a visit to the popular Hambro Arms, a pet and child friendly pub serving a variety of meals and traditional ales.

A post office also supplies basic groceries.

A short drive away is the market town of Blandford Forum and as well as being good for shopping it is notable for its attractive Georgian architecture which was erected when it was mostly rebuilt after a fire in 1731.

Milton Mills is a unique thatched cottage perfectly located to explore the Dorset countryside and get to know the history of the area with family or friends.
