  • "The property itself was immaculate."

    The only issue that we encountered was the fact that we opted to use our smaller third car and thank goodness we did because the other two vehicles (one of which is a VW campervan) would not have been able to access the parking bay which was extremely difficult to get onto due to the narrowness of the lane and the slope at the entrance to the parking area. Of course, you can park on the road in the village itself, although this would not be our preference. The welcome pack was an amazing gesture and we would definitely recommend the lodge to others.

  • "A really nice, compact place to stay."

    A secure outside area (good for people like us with dogs who will sniff out the tiniest hole to escape through). A field across the road to walk the dog. Really enjoyed our stay.

  • "Small compact unit."

    Could do with a little more hanging space for clothes and a larger outdoor area. However we could not fault the quality or the cleanliness of the property which is also very well equipped. It suited us for our weeks stay and made our stay in Dorset all the better.

  • "Absolutely first class property provided by Simon & Bobbie, cannot fault in any way."

    Property was immaculate and a very nice touch was the welcome gift basket containing bread, bottle of wine and lemon drizzle cake ! Location in the lovely village of Winterborne Stickland was ideal for exploring Dorset and the excellent local pub, The Crown, is only a minutes walk away and offers excellent food and beer. Had a fantastic holiday and would definitely stay there again.

    We really appreciated the welcome pack on arrival providing bread, milk, cake and wine. Good location for visiting local towns and the coast, and a pub providing food just a short walk away. Would certainly stay again if visiting Dorset.

About the location

BLANDFORD FORUM

Thornicombe 2.7 miles; Child Okeford 6.5 miles; Moors Valley Country Park & Forest 17.9 miles.

Blandford Forum is a market town in Dorset, England, situated by the River Stour. Notable for its Georgian architecture, most of the town was rebuilt in the 18th century after it was destroyed by a fire in 1731. King George II made a donation to rebuild the town centre with designs from local architects John and William Bastard. The Blandford Georgian Fayre is an annual event held in the first week of May and celebrates its Georgian heritage, with presentations, historical re-enactments and music and dancing. One of the town’s biggest events takes place on the late Bank Holiday weekend, the Great Dorset Steam Fair. A largely colourful festival with over 2,000 exhibits and an old time steam funfair. Offering a wide selection of independent store, supermarkets, pubs, restaurants, cafés and a Georgian tearoom. So much to visit within this quaint town and makes for a wonderful tourist attraction, whatever the season.
