Dream Cottages are delighted to offer The Granary and The Dairy located in this beautiful part of Dorset close to the market town of Beaminster.

Whetley Farm is set in an area of outstanding natural beauty crisscrossed by a well-signed footpath system for walking and enjoying the countryside. While the cottages are only 9 miles from the Jurassic Coast, with the lovely Beaminster Downs, Marshwood Vale, Lewesdon Hill, Pilsden Pen, Powerstock Forset, and Eggardon Hill all within a short drive, walkers are spoilt for choice and the owners can provide local area walking maps and suggested walks.

Free range eggs for your breakfast are available from the owners. The Granary and The Dairy are set in a shared, enclosed and sunny courtyard garden courtyard and each cottage has their own secluded and private patio with patio chairs, table and parasol where guests can sit and enjoy the peace and fresh air.

The West Country region

Dorset is a county with lots to offer, from astounding natural landmarks such as the World Heritage Jurassic Coast, the beautiful Golden Cap and the popular natural cove at Lulworth to the lively seaside towns of Weymouth, Swanage and Lyme Regis. A week (or longer) self catering holiday in Dorset gives you the time to really soak up the history, feel and beauty of the region, taste the fine local cuisine and enjoy a break from the hectic pace of town or city life.
