The England 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.

West Country

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 very relaxing lovely modern cottage with beautiful views. Would love to come back again!”

Reviewed 3 Sep 2015

We had a very nice welcome pack from Hilary. The accommodation is very clean with everything you need. It is very peaceful and relaxing and there is plenty to see and do e.g walks, cycling and you will find a cute railway station up the road which takes you to the coast or the city. The village pub do nice food. A travel information pack is provided with plenty of places to see and do and does not take long to get there. We loved its so much we will definitely be back again!

“Very enjoyable stay in a great location”

Reviewed 25 Aug 2015

Four winds is a fabulous place to stay, with generously sized bedrooms and a wonderful garden. Lots of drawer and storage space in the rooms too! The owners made us feel very welcome. The location is terrific, with several National Trust properties nearby and the coast within easy reach. There are also lots of lovely places to eat in nearby villages and in Chetnole itself. Also worth a visit is the Air Arm museum near Yeovil. We all thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and would recommend Four winds to any one looking to holiday in the Dorset area.

“A perfect place, we wished we could have stayed longer!”

Reviewed 10 Apr 2013

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.

“Quite and relaxing”

Reviewed 14 Oct 2012

“Second visit to Fourwinds - Must visit again!”

Reviewed 6 Oct 2012

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”

Reviewed 6 Sep 2012

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.

“Excellent”

Reviewed 9 Aug 2012

Very warm welcome by Hilary . Excellent house with full equipement. Peaceful environment. Location is very central. Visited beautyful Homes (Castles) and gardens and the spectacular coastside which are all to reach within 30 or 45 minutes. Great memories are printed in our minds.

“Perfect holiday home in quiet, delightful setting”

Reviewed 21 Jul 2012

We received a warm welcome at Fourwinds Cottage, which is spacious, very well furnished and equipped, and also has plenty of outside space. Quiet village setting, with local pub (excellent food) walking distance. Good walking and cycling area, and lots of interesting places to visit.

“Peaceful, relaxing, clean and well-appointed.”

Reviewed 17 Jul 2012

We arrived in the rainy season and found the A37 blocked due to flooding - not a good start! One quick phone call later and the owners were on their way to meet us and guide us in - a friendly gesture and much appreciated. We received a warm welcome, the cottage was clean and tidy and we felt at home immediately. The cottage is comfortable, well equipped, situated in quiet countryside and surrounded by meadow, fields and Dorset hills. A small patio houses a table, chairs and barbeque and children can let off steam in the paddock. Some outdoor games kit is provided and there are also books, dvd's and rainy day stuff. The Chetnole Inn has a good reputation - we didn't dine there but we enjoyed their take-away one evening. Once you've sorted out the narrow country lanes, it doesn't take long to reach Sherborne, Yeovil or Dorchester - all interesting places in their own right. Sherborne is a lovely little town with good selection of cafes and bistros, plus two castles and an abbey. Or head for Corfe and a bit of serious castle history. All in all, a thoroughly enjoyable week.

“A charming and peaceful hideaway”

Reviewed 11 Jun 2012

First-class comfort in airy rooms with lovely views over the Dorset hills. All rooms were perfectly cleaned when we arrived, and the kitchen had all the facilities we needed. Chetnole is a charming and peaceful village (with an excellent country pub!), and we would strongly recommend the cottage to any future travellers looking for a quiet hideaway.
