Description from owner

The Engine Room is a beautiful two person holiday hideaway set in the historic village of Milton Abbas in Dorset.The Engine Room once housed the fire engines for the village fire house and has been beautifully converted into a luxury holiday home for two. Features include beautiful hand crafted oak shelves and kitchen units, antique stained glass windows, a walk in shower and a private courtyard with table and chairs.The village of Milton Abbas is set in a valley lined with 'chocolate box' style thatched cottages and surrounded by woodland. The village leads down to a private lake and abbey (Milton Abbey).

The Dorset region

The Engine Room is set in the picturesque village of Milton Abbas in North Dorset. This area of Dorset was made famous by Thomas Hardy in his novels. The area is superb for walking with beautiful views and lovely countryside pubs along the way!

Milton Abbas

The Engine Room is situated in Milton Abbas, a beautiful historic village in Dorset, England. The village is famous for its 36 'chocolate box' style whitewashed thatch and cob cottages and for being the first planned settlement in England. The village is set in a valley which is surrounded by woodland either side so perfect for country walks. At the bottom of the village is a pathway known as 'Monk's Path' which leads to Milton Abbey a stunning abbey which is open to visitors.

The village was commissioned in 1780 by Joseph Damer and originally had a bakers, blacksmith, brewery and a fire house, of which The Engine Room is part of and was where the fire engines were originally kept.

The setting is perfect for those who are looking to get away for the hustle and bustle and looking for a relaxing break. The village itself is in a valley surrounded either side by woodland so is perfect for walking. There is also a footpath at the bottom of the village which leads to Milton Abbey. Milton Abbas church is also opposite. Milton Abbas is also in easy reach of local attractions such as Blandford Forum, a Georgian market town which is approximately 7 miles away, the world famous Jurassic coast with landmarks such as Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove, Poole, Weymouth and the charming town of Dorchester and Poundbury.

“Great little hideaway”

Reviewed 20 Oct 2013

This is a lovely, beautifully appointed, little holiday home. We found that, despite its small size, it had everything we needed and it is situated in an unique English village. There was plenty to do and see in the vicinity and we were blessed with pretty good weather. Friendly, helpful owner.


Reviewed 15 Oct 2013

It may look as if you have booked a stay in a garage but when you get inside it is a very tastefully, well equiped little hideaway. There is a little courtyard to have a glass of wine or if you want to look at the view of the village you can sit out the front. The village has no street lights so take a torch if you plan to walk to the wonderful Hambro Arms, where you can have a lovely meal or a drink. The village is totally unique, whitewashed cottages lining a quiet road, the only noise was an owl. We had a restful stay and enjoyed this beautiful place. We will be going back. If there were any negative points it was that I could not have an open window in the bedroom area but that was all.
