2 Appletree Cottage is tucked away in the quiet village of Sixpenny Handley near the town of Shaftesbury. Thought to be a former estate workers cottage for Rushmore Estate, parts of the cottage are believed to date back to 1866.

This charming, semi-detached two bedroom cottage is full of character and is a perfect example of old meets new with its traditional decor and modern conveniences. The rural setting is the perfect escape for those looking to embrace the outdoors, providing an excellent retreat for guests to enjoy walking, cycling or riding.

The cottage is ideally based to benefit from 7500 acres of ancient woodland, providing a diverse array of flora and fauna. The estate has been shaped for the pleasure of the local people, providing stunning gardens that house a theatre, temple and water garden and a redesigned golf course.

A short drive away is the historic market town of Shaftesbury that offers stunning views of the surrounding Dorset countryside as one of the highest towns in England. Shaftesbury offers rural charm, with quaint cottages and cobbled streets and its thriving town offers an abundance of independent shops, restaurants and cafes to enjoy.

The West Country region

Dorset's beautiful and dramatic scenery has long made the county a favourite with writers, poets and film crews. Jurassic cliffs plunge alongside picturesque harbour towns and coastal resorts, providing an impressive backdrop for the many popular Dorset holiday destinations. Blue Chip Holidays can offer Dorset holiday cottages in many of the county's towns, each of which has a slightly different experience to offer than the next.

Dorchester

Poole has one of the world's largest natural harbours. Portland Castle was built in 1539 by Henry VIII to defend Weymouth. Tours of Thomas Hardy's Dorset are operated throughout the county.
