    “The Engine Room met all of our expectations, was well supplied with essential equipment and things like soap, and Sharon was extremely helpful.”

    Slightly on the "small" side but OK for a few days break. Milton Abbas was great with a lovely reasonably priced pub just up the road. Lots of walking, historic sites, interesting cafes and countryside in the area.

The property

It was founded in the late 1700’s and stands in the grounds of one of the delightful thatched white washed cob cottages which line both sides of the street.

To the rear of the cottage is a vast woodland with a small lake capturing some of the best sights Dorset has to offer on your doorstep.

It is perfect for couples. The property opens to an open plan living room with a TV and WiFi, a dining area and fitted kitchen.

It has one double bedroom with an adjacent shower room and WC.

There is a private courtyard with furniture and access to the chiminea. Its surrounding area offers many footpaths which lead around the lake to Milton Abbey.

Not to forget the magnificent view from Bulbarrow Hill which reaches across Wessex.

It is within driving distance of the Georgian market town of Blandford and stretch of the Jurassic coastline. Further afield lies the village of Milborne St. Andrew, the valley is named for the seasonal stream which runs from springs high up on the chalk downs, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, offering glorious walks and superb views.
