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. Set in the peaceful, sheltered, secure and sunny stable courtyard of Whetley Farm, a classic 17th Century Ham stone house, the properties offer outstanding views of Lewsesdon Hill the highest point in Dorset.
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.
It is just three quarters of a mile to the village of Mosterton with its very well stocked village shop, post office and village pub which serves a selection of simple food.
Guests are welcome to walk and exercise their dogs in the two acre paddock. The paddock is being developing as a wood, arboretum and wild flower meadow and, by arrangement, you can feed the happy hens who live in the orchard. 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 stunning market town of Beaminster is two and a half miles south of Whetley Farm and has a lovely old worlde feel perfect for strolling round, with a local history museum, cafes, pubs, boutique hotel and brasserie, 3 restaurants (steak, local fish and Indian), French Patisserie, bakery, butcher (local meat and deli), home ware and home decorating shops, gallery, knitting shop and even Granny's Sweetie Shop.
These newly renovated properties offer a relaxing environment to get away from it all yet still being in a central location and easy driving distance to enjoy all Dorset has to offer.

The Dorset 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.
Beaminster is a small, picturesque town a few miles north of Bridport which hosts an annual music and arts festival. It is home to 2009 Masterchef winner Mat Follas' acclaimed restaurant 'The Wild Garlic'.

"Tranquil and well appointed"
We have returned here after visiting in 2012. The cottage is one of two (The other is very similar and called The Dairy) in a small block in an enclosed courtyard away from the owners' house. … More
Thank you for your lovely review and your kind words. I will pass this onto the owner as I know she will be delighted. So happy to hear you had a great time at The Granary. It's in such a lovely spot. Thank you again and we look forward to welcoming you back soon. With best wishes Dream Cottages.
