Lake Lodge is a beautiful detached two bedroom thatched cottage set above the lake besides which sits the traditional and picture postcard village of Milton Abbas. Running through the centre of the village is arguably one of the prettiest streets in Dorset. Rows of white-washed thatched cottages stretch up the hill to the horizon. A short stroll up `The Street' top of the hill will reward you with a visit to the popular Hambro Arms, a pet and child friendly pub serving a variety of meals and traditional ales. A post office also supplies basic groceries. Milton Abbey, around a half a mile walk from the village is worth a visit if you are interested in history; it has been the site of an Abbey since 933 and the current Abbey dates from around 1309. The market town of Blandford Forum is a short drive away and as well as being good for shopping it is notable for its attractive Georgian architecture which was erected when it was mostly rebuilt after a fire in 1731. With the Dorset coast around 40 minutes away another good option for a day trip is to enjoy the local world heritage coastline.

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.

Milton Abbas

Milton Abbas is a small village situated 8 miles south of Blandford. The village dates back to 1773 when building commenced at the instruction of Lord Milton as part of the transfer of the old town of Middleton originally located within the grounds of Milton Abbey.

"Nice accomodation, but...."

Really enjoyed our stay in this lovely litttle village, very scenic and quiet. Lake Lodge was a charning property with nicey views.
Towels are not provided, and although the contract does stipulate this, it is an inconveneince. There wasn't any washing up liquid on arrival, and the cutlery was extremely limited. Logs for the fire are not provided, which is not uncommon, but usually the first lot are complimentary.
Property was clean, although pots and pans needed a rinse ove before use.
We both agreed we would stay here again.
