  • "Property situation quite remote (this was a plus for us) and adequately sized for our party."

    Unfortunately there were only 2 double beds available not 3 as advertised we spoke to our host and was told no it was a twin - the equipment in the kitchen was old/tired, minimal and not clean - the picture appears to be it's original conversion and doesn't reflect the property now which has not been updated and is looking a bit tired. Overall we enjoyed our stay, we loved the surroundings, farm activity, and watching the beautiful variety of wild birds. The hosts were available but non invasive and easy going (Quentin, didn't see Maggie), Charlie their dog was hilarious he kept us entertained for hours and the free range eggs available to buy were amazing!! - we would definitely stay again if in the area.

    Thank you for your feedback with regards to your stay at The Milking Parlour. We are pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay and the lovely farm surroundings. We also appreciate the feedback and will pass your comments onto the Owner for review and updating. We would love to welcome you again to holiday with us in the future. Kind regards Manor Cottages.

  • "For a luxury price and 4 stars the cottage was in need of plenty tlc."

    In no particular order: 1.We left three phone messages before arrival, as encouraged by Sykes, which were not returned 2. The property was cold even with the underfloor heating on, especially after rain, watched tv with duvet! 3. The boiler is in the main bedroom and woke us up everytime someone used the loo, the neighbours used any water and when the heating came on 4. We used two of the three bedrooms and wifi did not work in either room 5. Generally not clean, mould in bathroom, loo had to scrubbed and bleached to remove dirt in the bowl 6. Towels awful! Had to go out and buy towels 7. Kitchen cups and plates chipped. Had to ask to have 3hr delay on dishwasher reset 8. Frying pans surfaces coming off on all the pans 9. Despite being dog friendly unable to control their dog, which had a go at our dog 10. The linking cottage is not soundproof despite assurances it would be 11. The chickens had pulled out all the manure along the path, we were advised it would be removed but it wasn't and we had to step round for the 8 days, trickier in the rain and the dark, the dog found it harder to avoid the manure .... This is the first bad review I have ever written. My partner and I both have our own businesses and know how hard it can be but feel we would be failing others not to say something.

    Thank you for your feedback with regards to your stay at The Milking Parlour. I'm so sorry to hear the cottage wasn't up to the usual high standards. Can i ask, did you speak to the owner with regards to all your concerns while at the house?. I will speak to the owner to review all of your notes mentioned and get these addressed. Kind regards Hideaways Property Owner

  • "Really nice place."

    the only thing is the access for wheelchairs is not good. Very difficult to push a wheelchair up the gravel path.

    Thank you for providing this feedback. We hope you enjoyed your stay as The Milking Parlour is a good choice for those guests with limited mobility. We're sorry if the wheelchair access was not so easy and hope it didn't impact on your stay. Property Owner

  • "Lovely surroundings and nice hosts."

    Comfortable beds, let down by dirty cooker and fridge (with no shelves and food left from previous visitors). Could do with a deep clean and garden (weeds) cut back to fully enjoy view.

About the location


Salisbury 21 miles; Bath 30 miles.

One of Dorset’s prettiest and most historic towns, Shaftesbury is perched on a spur of rolling green hills, and the views in all directions are without comparison. Lush green meadows, woodland glades and outstanding architecture are all within a short walk. One of the best vantage points is from Gold Hill (Ridley Scott's famous Hovis advert was filmed here) with its quaint, cobbled and very steep street. Visit the ruins of Shaftesbury Abbey (a place of great pilgrimage from the 11th century) or navigate the intricate and ancient lanes. Bath, Salisbury and Sherborne are all under an hour away, or drive through the stunning countryside of Blackmoor Vale down to the coast at Poole, Bournemouth and Weymouth. A beautiful area, that still carries the flavour of the very best of the English countryside.

Please note £25 charge per pet.
