Property Description

Set in a rural location in north Dorset, close to the Wiltshire/Somerset border, this 19th-century cottage of local stone has been extended, retaining character and charm. Within an easy drive one can enjoy the quaint, character abbey town of Sherborne, or the Saxon hill-top and market town of Shaftesbury, both with restaurants and shops, or have days out visiting attractions such as Longleat House and Safari Park, Stourhead house and garden and memorable days at either the Yeovilton Fleet Air Arm Museum or Haynes International Motor Museum with its wonderful selection of classic cars. Inland explore Glastonbury with its famous Tor, Cheddar Gorge, the cathedral city of Wells and the beautiful Georgian city of Bath with its famous Roman baths, pump room, museums and shops. Meander south into Dorset, passing the Cerne Abbas Giant and taking in Dorchester and onward to Weymouth and Hardy country, before reaching the famous and scenic Chesil Beach and World Jurassic Coast. There are many historic houses to marvel at, attractions to take the family to and if you wish, just simply enjoy wonderful country walking, pubs for wining and dining, maybe golf nearby or even a day at the Wincanton races. Shop and pub/restaurant 5 miles.

  1. Lovely quiet location, plenty of space indoors and a huge garden, we couldn’t ask for more. Oct 2012.
  2. A wonderful cottage with olde world charm. Lovely take a bath and look at the stars, the garden was large and our dogs loved it. If staying in Dorset again we would book brook cottage. Sept 2012.
  3. An interesting and enjoyable property in an excellent location. June 2012.
  4. Brook cottage was a fantastic location for us and our 2 young children. The cottage location was perfect for expoloring Dorset and further afield. There were rooms in the cottage that we didn’t get around to using with there only being four of us, would definitely go again with more people. June 2012.
  5. The cottage exceeded our expectations. It was much larger than expected but was still very cosy and warm. It is a perfect location for walking, straight from the front door. The pub in the village is also walkable to and is very good. Overall a lovely stay. March 2012.
  6. An absolutely fantastic cottage, right in the heart of the countryside. The owners of this cottage have managed to marry modern with traditional perfectly, resulting in a cosy yet highly functional property. I would highly recommend a stay here. Jan 2012.
  7. A beautiful cottage in a lovely part of the country. Nov 2011.
  8. Beautiful spacious cottage - loved the pictures and wall hangings. Very quiet location with some pleasant walks across farmland with views across the distant countryside. Oct 2011.
  9. Lovely cottage, well equipped and comfortable. Village pub serves lovely food and is extremely friendly although a bit of a treck from the house unless you walk via footpath over fields. April 2011.
  10. This is a beautiful cottage, lovelier even than the photographs show. Fine fabrics and rugs help to make it a joy to look at as well as comfortable to live in. We appreciated the kind help on the telephone beforehand from the caretakers and the sense overall of the owners’ concern to give value for money in the quality of the holiday experience in even very small ways. We highly recommend Brook Cottage. April 2011.
  11. Homely cottage, lots of space and well equipped. Feb 2011.

  14. It felt very personal and that a lot of loving care had gone into the restoration property. There was plenty of local information and maps left for our use, because it was so well fitted out with artifacts, books etc. It felt like we were the very personal guests of the owners. Dec 2010.
  15. The cottage was in an ideal setting, with good access to all we needed to enjoy our break. Oct 2010.

  17. Very spacious and comfortable. July 2010.
  18. We stayed at this beautiful, spacious cottage in July and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The cottage was very clean, very well equipped and the garden was perfect.
