Set halfway down the only 'street' in the scenic village of Milton Abbas, “The Engine Room” has been imaginatively created from the building, which once housed the engine for the village fire station. Standing next to one of the highly attractive, white-washed, cob and thatched cottages, which line both sides of the street, it now provides a very cosy, well-planned hideaway just for two.The Engine Room is accessed up three steps from a secluded courtyard garden and has all its accommodation at ground floor level. A great deal of thought has gone into ensuring that the best possible use has been made of the available living space.

Further details indoors

Location description from manager

The England region

Milton Abbas

Milton Abbas was founded in the late 1700's when the then owner of Milton Abbey commissioned architect Sir William Chambers and landscapist Capability Brown to design a new 'model' village away from the abbey. All the cottages, fronted by a lawn, are set well back from the gently sloping road, flanked by woodland, which curves down to a lake at the bottom.

The immediate surrounding area offers superb walking; there are footpaths leading around the lake to Milton Abbey, while a few miles away, Bulbarrow Hill at 900 feet offers magnificent views right across Wessex.

Conveniently located in the south of the county, Milton Abbas is within easy reach of the area's many attractions: the Georgian market town of Blandford is 7 miles away, the county town of Dorchester 11 and a beautiful stretch of the Jurassic coastline from Poole and the Isle of Purbeck to Weymouth is within half an hour's drive. Sherborne Abbey, the Cerne Abbas Giant, Kingston Lacy and Corfe Castle are among the many visitor attractions in this part of Dorset.
