The West Country region
Dorset offers you the perfect way to make the most of your break in this pretty and largely unspoilt county, there is something to suit all interests. It boasts unspoilt charm and outstanding natural beauty, to a rolling countryside of gentle chalk downs, wooded hills and river valleys, sprinkled with sleepy villages and flourishing market towns. The spectacular coastline, a world Heritage Site is renowned for its rich fossil hunting, beaches that seem to stretch for miles, bustling harbours and lively seaside resorts. Dorset is the principle setting of the novels of Thomas Hardy, who was born near Dorchester, you can follow the trail of places where he lived, places he wrote about and the church where his heart is buried. The climate is mild and less wet in the south west generally.
Chetnole is ideally situated for exploring the many delights that West Dorset has to offer. Nearby towns such as Sherborne which has a wealth of history and many fine art and antique shops. It is renowned for its ancient Abbey Church, famous schools, 15th century Almshouse and two castles, one built by Sir Walter Raleigh.
There is plenty to discover when you visit Dorchester, Dorsets county town,including Roman relics, Prince Charles' internationally renowned Poundbury and varied shopping, including a busy weekly market.
There is something for every one, from Yeoviltons Fleet Air Arm museum to Monkey World, Abbotsbury Swannery and the Cerne Abbas Giant.
Travel to the famous Jurassic Coast and along the beaches between Lyme Regis and Charmouth, fossils that were formed 200 million years ago within Jurassic rocks are continuously being revealed as the cliffs erode. You can join a fossil-hunting walk from Charmouth Heritage Coast Centre or Lyme Regis Museum, the safest and best way to hunt for fossils.

"A perfect place, we wished we could have stayed longer!"
This cottage is situated in a beautiful and peaceful part of Dorset, looking out over Melbury Bubb Hill. Hilary welcomed us with a basket of treats and we immediately felt at home and comfortable. The cottage was immaculate and very well equipped. The private garden was a little oasis and full of wonderful birds which were very therapeutic to watch from the kitchen and master bedroom windows. The pub down the road was excellent and we ate there twice in the week; It was wonderful to walk to the pub and stroll back gazing at the night sky. We also visited Sherborne, Lulworth Cove and Weymouth.
This was our first time in the cottage but we have stayed on a B&B basis with Hilary several times. We look forward to returning and cannot recommend it highly enough.

"Second visit to Fourwinds - Must visit again!"
This was our second stay at Fourwinds, the previous time was just over three years ago and that stay was excellent and had been talked about regularly since.
We booked with Hilary for this week in September 2012, we were looking forward to returning with a little apprehension as our expectations were based on our memories of that previous excellent visit - we should not have worried, it was not only as good as we remembered but better as there had been some additions such as wifi.
It was a real pleasure to meet Hilary again and receive the generous welcome pack.
We had some unfortunate weather on a couple of days which meant spending more time in the cottage but this was not a problem as it was just like being at home, plenty of things provided for this eventuality, dvds, books and games if you wanted.
The cottage is in a great rural setting, fields and countryside views from the bedroom and kitchen, the wild life which regularly visit the cottage garden is a pleasure to watch.
I woulkd definitely reccomend this cottage and will seek to stay at Fourwinds if visiting Dorset again.

"Relaxing setting with lots to do nearby"
This is the second time that we have stayed at Fourwinds. As before we received a very warm welcome from Hilary (as well as home made marmalade & apple cake!) . Excellent accomodation with everything you need. Peaceful and relaxing setting. Use of paddock for children to play in is ideal. Chetnole Inn down the road is great for food and drinks. Other good pubs nearby. Location is very central - visited Dorchester (twice), Longleat and Abbotsbury. A really relaxing holiday.
