About this location

The Dorset region

North Dorset is an unspoiled area of south west England with a huge variety of countryside and pretty villages with thatched cottages. There is wonderful walking and the UNESCO designated Jurassic Coast is 40 minutes away

Although neighbouring villages have suffered over the winter with flooding, there has not been a problem in Child Okeford

Child Okeford

Coach Cottage is in Child Okeford, about 5 miles from Blandford Forum and 8 from Shaftesbury. It is a vibrant village with a post office, shop (open 7 days), organic farm shop and two pubs which also do food.

The walking is superb. Coach Lane is a public footpath leading directly to the Iron Age hillfort of Hambledon Hill. There are numerous footpaths throughout the village and surrounding area, as well as a trailway on an old railway line which runs between Blandford Forum and Sturminster Newton.

"Wonderful, well-equipped cottage with good local amenities"

An exceptionally well equipped cottage with wonderful walks from the doorstep. Warm, clean and cosy. Owners are very helpful. Dog-friendly but equally good without a canine friend, as we were - you would not know that visitors with dogs had been there - it is so clean and comfortable. Good local pubs within walking distance with very tasty food. You can quickly walk to the village shop over the footpath - all necessities, local produce and excellent crusty bread. Well situated for exploring but also relaxing just to sit in the garden or curl up with a book by the fire. Highly recommended!
