    “Mattress in king size bed kept coming apart and a little hard (splits into 2 singles).”

    Would prefer some sort of bar across the double bed that is on top of the cupboard and something to hold onto when climbing up to the bed. Aside from that lovely cottage and location all facilities and utensils/cooker etc very good. Impressed at everything provided. Downstairs toilet a lovely novelty. Just a suggestion larger bed in the single bedroom it would fit a small double easily.

The property

Milton Farm Cottage is a wonderful stone-built cottage nestled on the outskirts of Gillingham, Dorset.

Inside, the property has been renovated to provide an exceptional base for friends and families seeking an escape to the Dorset countryside.

The interior decor is high-quality standard with quality furnishings which coincide with the light walls and spacious rooms.

Step into the open-plan living space, with a sitting area to relax and unwind into the evening catching up with your favourite shows.

Gather at the dining table to enjoy your lovingly prepared home-cooked meals over a well-deserved glass of bubbly.

The kitchen has been equipped with everything you could need to rustle up delicious meals.

There is a second sitting room you can use as a quiet space to catch up on some late night reading.

Upstairs has four well-presented bedrooms, comprising of a super-king-size with zip and link features, a double, and a single, all of which have plenty of quality furniture for storage purposes.

The final bedroom offers a raised double bed, secured above fitted wardrobes, with shelves acting as steps, and care must be taken when ascending.

Delight in the family bathroom with a roll-top, freestanding bath so you can enjoy a warm soak in the tub at the end of a tiring day, or choose the walk-in shower cubicle if you're in a hurry in the morning.

Resting close to the Cranborne Chase AONB, is Stourhead, an elegant mansion dating back to the 18th century and spanning across 1,000 acres of land, perfect for sightseeing and long walks through the landscaped grounds.

Between the Cranborne Chase AONB and the Dorset AONB, you are well-placed for accessing a larger number of tourist sites, with the thriving town of Shaftesbury close-by, housing a number of attractions including the cobbled street of Gold Hill, Shaftesbury Abbey Museum and Garden Trust.

Milton Farm Cottage is a delightful choice for a countryside break to Dorset.

About the location

GILLINGHAM

Shaftesbury 5 miles.

A small bustling North Dorset market town in the heart of the Blackmore Vale, well served by a good selection of local shops, inns, restaurants, and a direct rail link from London to the West Country. The town was immortalised by John Constable's famous painting of The Old Town Bridge, which now hangs in the Tate Gallery. The Blackmore Vale, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is part of the Stour Valley, vividly depicted by Thomas Hardy in Tess of The D'Urbervilles, as 'Vale of the little dairies', with lush green countryside and a 'patchwork quilt' of fields. The area abounds with pretty rural walks and offers numerous National Trust properties and historic houses within a short drive, such as Stourhead, Longleat and Wilton, whilst the wonderful Dorset Heritage Coast is also an easy drive.
