The West Country region

The Engine Room is set in the picturesque village of Milton Abbas in North Dorset. This area of Dorset was made famous by Thomas Hardy in his novels. The area is superb for walking with beautiful views and lovely countryside pubs along the way!

Milton Abbas

The Engine Room is situated in Milton Abbas, a beautiful historic village in Dorset, England. The village is famous for its 36 'chocolate box' style whitewashed thatch and cob cottages and for being the first planned settlement in England. The village is set in a valley which is surrounded by woodland either side so perfect for country walks. At the bottom of the village is a pathway known as 'Monk's Path' which leads to Milton Abbey a stunning abbey which is open to visitors.

The village was commissioned in 1780 by Joseph Damer and originally had a bakers, blacksmith, brewery and a fire house, of which The Engine Room is part of and was where the fire engines were originally kept.

The setting is perfect for those who are looking to get away for the hustle and bustle and looking for a relaxing break. The village itself is in a valley surrounded either side by woodland so is perfect for walking. There is also a footpath at the bottom of the village which leads to Milton Abbey. Milton Abbas church is also opposite. Milton Abbas is also in easy reach of local attractions such as Blandford Forum, a Georgian market town which is approximately 7 miles away, the world famous Jurassic coast with landmarks such as Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove, Poole, Weymouth and the charming town of Dorchester and Poundbury.

"Great little hideaway"

This is a lovely, beautifully appointed, little holiday home. We found that, despite its small size, it had everything we needed and it is situated in an unique English village. There was plenty to do and see in the vicinity and we were blessed with pretty good weather. Friendly, helpful owner.

"beautiful"

It may look as if you have booked a stay in a garage but when you get inside it is a very tastefully, well equiped little hideaway. There is a little courtyard to have a glass of wine or if you want to look at the view of the village you can sit out the front. The village has no street lights so take a torch if you plan to walk to the wonderful Hambro Arms, where you can have a lovely meal or a drink. The village is totally unique, whitewashed cottages lining a quiet road, the only noise was an owl. We had a restful stay and enjoyed this beautiful place. We will be going back. If there were any negative points it was that I could not have an open window in the bedroom area but that was all.
