Description from owner

Description

Deep in the lovely Dorset hinterland lies the tiny hamlet of Droop, with this attractively modernised Grade II listed cottage. Long views of unspoilt countryside towards Bulbarrow Hill from the end of the very private garden provide an idea of the wonderful walks to be enjoyed in the immediate area; but Droop is also very centrally located with easy access to a wide variety of attractions. Set behind the owners' ancient farmhouse and tastefully converted from a 300 year old stone barn, the cottage provides bright, spacious accommodation and the large and attractive garden affords privacy and peace. This is a very relaxing place for a thoroughly enjoyable holiday in one of the country's most unspoilt regions.

Further details indoors

Entrance from garden side of cottage into kitchen/dining room. Large sitting room with electric woodburning-effect stove. Downstairs double bedroom. Separate shower room/wc. Open tread stairs from sitting room to landing. Two bedrooms,

Location description from owner

The England region

Hazelbury Bryan

The ancient Saxon, hilltop town of Shaftesbury, and historic Sherborne (abbey and castle) are both a relatively short drive from Droop Farm Cottage, with the cathedral city of Salisbury, the New Forest and the World Heritage, Jurassic Dorset coast all within comfortable reach for a day's outing. There is a village shop and pub in nearby Hazelbury Bryan and for a wider range, the market town of Sturminster Newton is six miles away. Wonderful walks, rides, and fine views abound: Hambledon Hill, an iron age fort, in particular is a 'must'.

“Tastefully decorated, well thought out cottage”

Reviewed 29 Jul 2013

This is a beautiful little cottage, which has been tastefully decorated to a high standard. Surrounded by beautiful gardens, and fabulous countryside. Ideal place to stay if you want to get away from everything.

Thank you for your feed-back, which will be useful for future guests. We're really glad you enjoyed your stay at in Dorset. Hideaways Reservations team.
