The West Country region

This delightful region of the West Country, offers an immense amount of places to visit ,with many pretty villages to explore and open countryside to travel around. The ancient towns of both Sherborne and Shaftesbury are within a short drive, as is the stunning National Trust Gardens and house of Stourhead and Kingston Lacy, Montacute House, Lytes Cary Manor and Barrington House. Further afield there are the cities of Bath ,with its famous baths and Royal Crescent; Longleat House and Safari Park is also close by as is Salisbury city with its beautiful Cathedral and of course Stonehenge. There is also much to do with many fishing lakes and rivers, theatres at Bath, Poole, Yeovil and Wimborne. Racing at Wincanton, Bath Rugby and numerous country fairs and events.


There are many good local country pubs situated in the area, with at least three within two miles of the Cabin and many more, just a few miles further away. We can recommend the Italian restaurant in Shaftesbury, or the local Indian at Henstridge. In Gillingham, there is a choice of take-away and the excellent Kings Arms public house. For your convenience and basic needs, we have both an Asda and Waitrose supermarket locally ,with a larger Tesco’s Store at Shaftesbury.

We would be delighted to provide a Welcome Hamper (at cost and usually around £20 - £25) which will include butter, ham, cheese, milk, cereals, bread and salad just to get you started, or if you expect to arrive late.

Suggestions and ideas for your holiday, or short break ,may be found in the multitude of comprehensive tourist information supplied in the Cabin.

"Great value and well located"

The cabin is quite small but has everything you need and is absolutely fine for two people. You can hear the traffic passing by: there's not a lot of it and it didn't bother us, but if you're looking for an isolated rural location, this isn't it. It's good value for money, and there's loads to do nearby. We had a great time and would definitely recommend it.
