The Garden House

Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4

Key Info
  • Great for children of all ages
  • Car advised
  • No pets allowed

Great care has gone into the conversion of this former coach house, which is situated in the garden of a larger house in the village of Okeford Fitzpaine. Lying in the Stour Valley beneath Bulbarrow Hill, (900ft) from where there are magnificent views across several counties, this part of Dorset offers excellent opportunities for walking and cycling.

The interior of the Garden House, graded 4 stars by Visit Britain, has been very tastefully decorated, considerable care being taken through the furnishings, lighting and colour schemes to bring out the building's original character. This is combined with good amenities, including underfloor heating, making this a very comfortable base to return to after a busy day's sightseeing.

Further details outdoors

Outside there is a fenced and partly walled garden with lawned and paved areas. Barbecue.


A beautiful stretch of the South Dorset heritage coastline from Poole - don't miss Browsea Island & Sandbanks - to Portland Bill is within easy driving distance and there is an abundance of visitor attractions in the area to suit all tastes and pockets, including Bovington Tank Museum, Monkey World, Tower Park leisure complex as well as Stourhead, Hardy's Cottage, Corfe Castle and Kingston Lacey (all National Trust). The market towns of Sturminster Newton and Blandford are 3 and 6 miles respectively, whilst Okeford Fitzpaine has its own Post Office/village stores and pub. There are also a number of country pubs in the surrounding villages, which are well worth a visit.

"A comfortable cottage in a beautiful English Village"

Good sized living rooms and bedrooms; bathroom and toilet rather small but adequate. Friendly welcome including milk, tea bags etc and CAKE! Supply of towels was particularly generous, plenty of them … More
