Deep in the lovely Dorset hinterland lies the tiny hamlet of Droop, with this attractively modernised Grade II listed cottage. Long views of unspoilt countryside towards Bulbarrow Hill from the end of the very private garden provide an idea of the wonderful walks to be enjoyed in the immediate area; but Droop is also very centrally located with easy access to a wide variety of attractions.

Set behind the owners' ancient farmhouse and tastefully converted from a 300 year old stone barn, the cottage provides bright, spacious accommodation and the large and attractive garden affords privacy and peace. This is a very relaxing place for a thoroughly enjoyable holiday in one of the country's most unspoilt regions.

Blandford Forum

The ancient Saxon, hilltop town of Shaftesbury, and historic Sherborne (abbey and castle) are both a relatively short drive from Droop Farm Cottage, with the cathedral city of Salisbury, the New Forest and the World Heritage, Jurassic Dorset coast all within comfortable reach for a day's outing. There is a village shop and pub in nearby Hazelbury Bryan and for a wider range, the market town of Sturminster Newton is six miles away. Wonderful walks, rides, and fine views abound: Hambledon Hill, an iron age fort, in particular is a 'must'.
