  • "The property was lovely and in a very peaceful setting."

    The owner couldn’t have been more friendly and helpful. We had a lovely holiday. The only slight downside was the lack of a sink in the kitchen area, but we managed very well.

  • "I think that of all the cottages we have stayed at this has to be one of the best."

    Leesa and fleur were the best hosts you could wish for and the cottage itself was so peaceful. The lack of cooking facilities was a brilliant challenge which we embraced and enjoyed looking at alternative ways of cooking. Overall we have had a holiday to always remember and will look forward to going again in the future.

    Thankyou so much to you both for all of your feedback, it was a pleasure meeting you. I'm so pleased you enjoyed your stay here! Leesa & Fleur of course! Property Owner

  • "Thank you Leesa and Fleur."

    We had a fantastic stay. Such a relaxing time. Morning coffee on the patio in the sunshine, listening to the birds. The cottage was stunning. Spacious and every need catered for. Nothing was too much trouble. We would love to come and stay again. Thank you.

    Thankyou Nicky, so pleased that you & your daughter loved it here, you'd be very welcome to return anytime of course! Leesa & Fleur Property Owner

    We have a 2 and a bit year old Jack Russell cross with bundles of energy and there was plenty of safe enclosed space for him to run around in. He got on well with Leesa’s Golden Labrador Fleur

  • "Wonderful stay."

    Bungalow was so quiet and peaceful and the area was fantastic for hill forts, walks and just amazing scenery. Leesa, the host was very attentive without ever being invasive and our dog loved playing with her dog Fleur. Plenty of great places to eat out in surrounding villages and lots of takeaways in Sturminster Newton.

  • "Rhode Acres is lovely, it is a very comfortable, clean and spacious Cottage, it is so quiet and relaxing at this property."

    We and our dog Reggie loved the outside space, it was very safe for him as there were no roads nearby, the owners dog Fleur was adorable. Leesa was lovely, always very helpful but never intrusive. We would recommend Rhode Acres for a quiet stay but with plenty if places to visit if you so wish.

    We could not have asked for more. Nothing was too much trouble for the owner Leesa and if anything she goes above and beyond. Even Leesa’s golden Labrador Fleur added to the ambiance of our holiday .

    The property provides comfort and luxury, and the owner is very welcoming and knowledgeable in the area for places to eat, places to visit, and a location for anyone wishing to walk directly on paths of which one path is immediately as one leaves the premises. For those wishes to explore the South West Coastal Path, and the Dorset Coastal Towns they are quite easy to reach.

About the location


Sherborne 10 miles; Yeovil 15 miles; Bournemouth 25 miles

A tranquil, rural village sat just outside of the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Hazelbury Bryan is a small, traditional village with thatched buildings, a parish church dating back prior to the 15th century and a popular pub that was built in 1750, it also boasts a Spar shop. In the village there is also a field with cricket and football facilities as well as a children's play area. Hazelbury Bryan proves itself to be a great base for exploring the outdoors with the Dorset and Cranborne Chase Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty easily accessible, offering great opportunities for walkers and cyclists with great views to accompany it. The village is rather secluded, with the nearest well-stocked town being Sherborne 10 miles away, it offers a good selection of shops and places to eat. If you fancy a trip to the coast, visit Bournemouth around 25 miles south, a delightful town with so much to see and do.
