There are many good local country pubs situated in the area, with at least three within two miles of the Cabin and many more, just a few miles further away. We can recommend the Italian restaurant in Shaftesbury, or the local Indian at Henstridge. In Gillingham, there is a choice of take-away and the excellent Kings Arms public house. For your convenience and basic needs, we have both an Asda and Waitrose supermarket locally ,with a larger Tesco’s Store at Shaftesbury.

We would be delighted to provide a Welcome Hamper (at cost and usually around £20 - £25) which will include butter, ham, cheese, milk, cereals, bread and salad just to get you started, or if you expect to arrive late.

"Great value and well located"

The cabin is quite small but has everything you need and is absolutely fine for two people. You can hear the traffic passing by: there's not a lot of it and it didn't bother us, but if you're looking for an isolated rural location, this isn't it. It's good value for money, and there's loads to do nearby. We had a great time and would definitely recommend it.
