    “Downside is located on a quiet, working farm and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.”

    Our dogs got used to the proximity of the farm animals, even the chickens in the garden! This is a perfect base for exploring Dorset and Somerset. As well as the local villages of Mosterton and Crewkerne, we managed to visit Bridport, West Bay, Glastonbury, Weymouth, Durdle Door, Dorchester and Cheddar. All in 1 week! The facilities are as described and I am sure that if we had asked for anything extra, we would have been looked after. Thanks Downside and Sykes!

The property

Mosterton 0.75 miles. A self-contained, semi-detached Dorset cottage, a wing of the owner's farmhouse, peacefully situated on a working dairy farm on the Downs close to the charming village of Mosterton, on the borders of West Dorset and South Somerset.

The cottage offers well-equipped, comfortable accommodation, with outstanding views across the Axe Valley, as well as a cosy open fire and sunny conservatory, and is a perfect place for relaxing after a day exploring this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Enjoy a fresh egg for breakfast from one of the free range hens, watch the calves being fed or take a stroll along one of the numerous footpaths which criss-cross this 180-acre farm.

Visit Beaminster of TV's River Cottage fame, or head south to the Jurassic Coast.

A perfect base for a relaxing farm holiday in tranquil, rural surroundings.
