The Cowshed is a cosy 2 bedroom cottage (sleeps 4). The ground floor has an open plan kitchen and living space with TV and fireplace. Upstairs there is a bedroom with a king size bed, a twin bedroom and one bathroom. As you will see from the photos there are sloping ceilings so watch your head! Well behaved dogs by arrangement. The mobile phone signal is zero in the cottage. Some Vodafone signal in the yard. Or use the wifi to make calls.

The space
A comfortable space suited to families, with or without four-legged friends. The Cowshed is in the corner of our yard. You can park right by the door.

The yard is large and airy so you can be quite isolated from anyone else during your stay, should you wish. After each visit I clean and then disinfect all surfaces and handles. There are plenty of family games and a TV with netflix (on your own account) and other streaming services.

The back door leads onto a private space where you can sit out and enjoy the air. There is a grass area where your dog or children can run. There is a tennis court next to the yard - not immaculate but good for a game. You are welcome to bring your rackets and have a game. Note the tennis court is used by us. We also have a table tennis table in the barn - ask Tess for the key.

Please note that mobile phone signal is terrible in the cottage and you'll need to use the wifi connection to make calls. There is some signal in the yard.

Other things to note
Please note that we keep cattle in the fields, including a bull. Please don't walk the fields without checking with us first.

The land around us is farmed. Tractors and the occasional lorry come up and down the lane. Just across the road from the Cowshed are farm barns (not ours).

This is a quiet and beautiful corner of Dorset on a small farm. The village is a short walk up the lane. The Drovers Inn, the village pub, is about a 10 minute walk.

The Cowshed is just 6 miles from the Great Dorset Steam Fair which is held on the August bank holiday weekend. It's a wonderful place to explore local attractions and make trips to the beaches which are a drive away. There is wonderful walking along the ancient drove roads including Ackling Dyke, a Roman road that runs up to Salisbury.

There is an 1/2 hour walk to Knowlton Church, a 12th century ruined church which sits inside a neolithic henge - just mind the nettles along the bridlepath!

There is no shop in the village and you will need a car to get to the local shops (Cranborne or Wimborne).

We have plenty of nightlife - bats, owls and other wildlife. You'll be able to stargaze as we're in the dark sky area of Cranborne Chase.
