  • We stayed at Lisa's air bnb for a weekend work trip along with our toddler and two dogs. It is a converted building in the garden of her thatched cottage. The village is very sweet and the air bnb was perfect for our stay. Lisa's little touches were so thoughtful and made our stay even better. Lisa provided a travel cot and the room was very comfy. We ate in the local pub (white horse) on the Friday evening - they were very helpful and accommodating and the food was great. We visited RSPB Arne for work and the tank museum at Bovington - both were great visitor experiences and would highly recommend.

    Durweston, United Kingdom

    A new log cabin built autumn 2015 in its own grounds and completely private, overlooking heathland where horses and cattle roam freely 6 months of the year. It's next to farmland with a fishing lake nearby. Great for walks and enjoying the outdoors. Renting the log cabin is based on two guests sharing, any additional guest pays a complimentary fee.
    The log cabin is spacious, cosy and comfortable. The sofa in the lounge also converts to a double bed , so up to 6 people can to stay. The cabin sits in an exclusive paddock of one acre surrounded by field, woods and heathland. It is a haven for wildlife. Guests can enjoy the grounds where there is a trampoline, swings and can also enjoy cooking and eating outdoors. There is also a coarse fishing lake in the adjacent farm.
    It's location makes the cabin very unique. Its a rural retreat. No neighbours (except the cows,horses, deer and squirrels!) Great for wild life and being close to nature. Completely secluded with a beautiful view of the grounds. A great escape from the city! The Cross Keys pub, which is within walking distance, offers good food. There is also a good selection of country pubs nearby. There are excellent restaurants, pubs in the towns previously mentioned, as well as theatres and nightlife. We have wonderful beaches in Bournemouth and Poole. Close by, we have Potterns Park in Verwood and Moors Valley Country Park. Great for outdoor activities with the family and friends.
  • The cabin is perfect for some time out of the big smoke! I stayed there with 5 friends and we had a lovely time . The cabin is clean , outside areas spacious , lots of parking and space to run around! The cabin itself is perfect for short stays and well equipped ( kitchen stocked and lots of activities for a rainy day) . Perfect welcome by the hosts and flexibility with check out 😊

    Nuren2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect for a mini break to the new forest. 3 legged pub and moors valley country park were our highlights. Many thanks!

    Kat2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Great place and great hosts. Very welcoming in the pub too!

    James2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Great place close to the New Forest for exploring. We had a little walk from the lodge and saw 2 stages up close, amazing! Loved the breakfast selection, especially the eggs! Great hosts, would definitely recommend, thank you for a lovely stay!

    Becky2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Another perfect stay. We will definitely be returning again in the future.

    Lemarre2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • An amazing place. Luisa and Len are incredible hosts. The place is warm and safe. The cabin has everything you would need. They also provided us with bread, milk, cereals and some fabulous eggs. You have the country side and forest outside your door and the sea, 15min away. Totally recommend it.

    Christina2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • We had a pleasant half term break at the cabin. Kids enjoyed the bunk beds and the cabin had everything needed for a relaxing stay. Host was welcoming.

  • A quaint and idyllic place for a quiet getaway! Absolutely loved the hot tub, and breakfast delivered to the door in the morning! The hut was well decorated, had everything we need and made us feel like home from the moment we got there! Would highly recommend.

    Francesca2020-03-18T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent little hut to stay in! Furniture and vibe was very chilled. It’s really secluded so you have a lot of privacy for the hot tub and they provided free cooked breakfast through Uber eats which was great!! Didn’t have any problems through the trip!

    Amy2020-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing! Would definitely stay again. One of the best types of these places I’ve stayed

    Stacy2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely little retreat, secluded and peaceful. Hot tub was fab and place was warm, comfortable and cosy. Easy to find with good clear instructions.

    John2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • Such a beautiful little getaway !! You are so secluded from everything which is so lovely, just you and whoever you are with, relaxing in a hot tub in the woods 🌟 If you didn’t want to cook anything there is lots of takeaway places!

    Amy2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely relaxing stay in a beautiful setting

    Alex2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • This place is absolutely gorgeous, warm, cosy and comfortable. Every single thing we brought thinking we would need was already provided, hot tub was already on for us, breakfast brought to our door before we left, my partner is first to complain about anything! But he was amazed and said he wants to come back (a first 😂)... we travelled for his 30th which the cabin was decorated for even with a bottle of drink. Honestly you cannot get better then this little place.. and the bed 😍 don’t think we’ve slept that well for a while. Thank you Downwood. You made our first air b & b totally amazing xx

    Lauren2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay was really lovely. The cabin was cosy and full of thoughtful touches including decorations for my birthday and a bottle of Prosecco! Relaxing in the hot tub and enjoying the beautiful views was perfect.

    Blandford Forum , England, United Kingdom

    Our cosy Studio for 2 nestles on the edge of woodland, yet only 5 mins away from Shaftesbury in Dorset. Wake up to bird song, go for long walks right from the door step, explore many nearby attractions, enjoy a meal or drink on the private terrace. It is possible to have a third person staying. Please indicate 3 people when booking and we will make an airbed, bedding and towels available. There is a charge of £15 per night for a third person. Please be aware that the place is small!
    This self contained, modern & comfortable studio annex as its own entrance with private terrace and outdoor space. The property sits in an area of outstanding natural beauty, nestled on the hillside on the edge of ancient woodland. The property is set in 1 acre of wildlife gardens in a quiet hamlet just 5 minutes drive from the historic hill town of Shaftesbury on the border between Dorset and Wiltshire. We are located about 1.5miles outside Shaftesbury in a small hamlet on the edge of the woods. The Studio has a very comfortable King size bed (5 feet wide and 6 feet 6 inches long – 150 x 198 cm), well equipped kitchenette, sitting & dining area, a quite small shower room with basin and toilet, and a walk-in wardrobe/storage. Ideal for walking holidays and short breaks. The studio is well located if you want to visit the End of the Road Festival or Larmer Tree Festival. The kitchenette is well equipped, including full size fridge with freezer compartment, oven with grill, 2 plate induction hob, kettle, toaster and extractor fan. The Studio is ideal for individual travellers, close friends or couples (we welcome all couples!). We're also happy to accommodate parents with babies, but you will need to bring your own cot. Please note that children need to be supervised in the garden! There is a 42" TV with Freesat and DVD player, free Wifi Internet connection (although this can sometimes be slow or disrupted because of our rural location - we can therefore not guarantee the internet service) and stereo speakers for plugging in your iPod or MP3 Player. A selections of DVDs, games and books are available. Outside is a picnic table. You can view the many different birds on the bird feeders, stroll around the wild gardens or sit in one of several quiet benches around the garden. Please note that we basically live in the woods, so there is no view from the Studio terrace. However, guests are welcome to stroll to the end of the garden and enjoy some views from the bench. There is a well stocked village store only 2 miles away in the village of Ludwell, a small grocery store at the petrol station 1 mile away. In Shaftesbury you will find a large Tesco superstore and a lovely town centre with interesting shops and cafés including some very nice food shops. There's a market on Thursday mornings. Shaftesbury is famous for its Gold Hill (from the Hovis Bread ad), it's Abbey, historic buildings and the amazing views across the Blackmore Vale. Salisbury is only 35mins drive to the east and Bath an hour north. An hours drive will also get you to some of the most stunning beaches of the Jurrasic Coast. We have created our house and the Studio as environmentally friendly as possible. We have solar panels to help heat the water and Solar PV to generate electricity. Rainwater is collected and feeds the toilets in the house. We use environmentally friendly cleaning materials and recycle and compost. Please help by separating your recyclables from normal household rubbish. The Studio is extremely well insulated and has central heating. Please note: both the central heating and hot water are heated by an air source heat pump. This is a very efficient and low energy system but works on low temperatures. Therefore please wait 10 minutes between showers, as there may otherwise not be enough hot water available. Similarly the central heating does work on low heat, therefore please don't expect the radiators to be piping hot. The temperature in the Studio should always be comfortable. If not, please let us know as the settings may need adjusting. What makes our place unique is the location. You will be right at the edge of the woods. Deer and badgers sometimes visit the garden and we have an abundance of different birds including Woodpeckers, Long Tail Tits, Jays, Song Thrushes and Bull Finches. You will find some wonderful walks (short and long) right on your doorstep. Yet we are only a 5 minute drive from Shaftesbury, Dorset which has an good selections of independent shops & cafés and a large Tesco. You can park free in Tesco carpark for 3 hours and walk into town from there. The Jurassic Coast (Poole, Studland, Weymouth) or Bath are within an hours drive. We run a non-smoking property, but you are welcome to smoke outside. Just leave your cigarette butts in the receptacle provided outside your entry door. We have a dog ourselves, so know how difficult it is to find accommodation that allows dogs. As the Studio is only a one-room accommodation, it is not suitable for large dogs. But if you do want to bring a small dog, please ask and we will consider it. A surcharge of £5 per night for bringing a dog applies. We also have a cat, Misty. She's basically an outdoor cat, but she likes to manipulate guests to let her into the Studio. You should know this if you're allergic to cats, as we cannot guarantee that the Studio doesn't contain allergens. Also if you do not want her in your room, just chuck her out and keep the windows open only a small gap at night, as otherwise you might receive an unwanted visitor.
    My favourite thing about living here is that one can go on walks from 30 minutes to 3 hours through the most glorious country side and woodlands right from our door step. Guests always comment on how well they sleep here because it is so quite and how they like being woken up by bird song. You really are in the midst of nature, yet only a 5 minute drive away from Shaftesbury on the Dorset/Wiltshire border. You can walk into town if you wish. It will take you approximately 40-45 minutes through fields and woodland. Salisbury is a 40 mins and day-trips can be taken to Bath, Stourhead, Poole, Weymouth and the Jurassic Coast.
  • I enjoyed my few days away in the comfortable and peaceful space of the eco hideaway. It is beautifully put together, with modern fittings and views looking out on the garden. The town of Shaftesbury is close by, and I especially loved Park Walk. Gabriela and Neil are friendly and responsive hosts who I would highly recommend. Thank you again for a lovely stay!

    Zoë2019-11-02T00:00:00Z
  • Clean and well equipped eco place to stay. Perfect for a quiet weekend

    Donhead St Mary, Shaftesbury, Dorset, United Kingdom

    Our lovely double height wood and stone barn directly opposite our house is found at the end of a long private drive in glorious countryside. A very comfortable 5ft bed, woodburning stove and lovely views, a perfect relaxing and cosy retreat. Easy access to lots of interesting places. Guests can play tennis and croquet. The Barn sleeps two adults. Ample parking directly next to Barn. Please note the Barn is not suitable for children. NB There are no shops or pubs within walking distance.
    The Barn is set at the end of a long drive, well away from any road, in a private 33 acre estate, no noise, no light pollution, just peace and quiet. Although directly opposite the main house, it is quite private. High ceilings, french windows with country views, kingsize double bed (on mezzanine accessed by quite steep stairs), wood burning stove, oak dining table with candles, WIFI (not super fast or that strong), TV DVD player - everything you need for a comfortable weekend or longer stay. It is not a hi-tech/spec barn but it is comfy and in a beautiful setting. Parking directly next to the Barn. Well situated for visits to Bath, Salisbury, the Jurassic Coast, Gold Hill, the new Hauser & Wirth gallery/restaurant in Bruton, Longleat, and much more. Fantastic walking and cycling country. Adjacent to Copse View alpaca walking as seen on Countryfile! One king bed on the mezzanine level in the Barn. Shower with constant hot water. Private BBQ area Tennis Court Croquet Lawn Clay pigeon shooting (extra cost) We are happy to collect guests from nearby railway station at Gillingham, Dorset (where there is Waitrose/Lidl/Asda). Bear in mind nearest pub would then be 30 mins walk. Beautiful unspoilt countryside - watch the deer and buzzards from the windows - and lots of good pubs nearby. Excellent access to lots of lovely places - Bath, Salisbury, Stonehenge, Stourhead, Jurassic Coast. Bed made up with 100% Egyptian cotton linen, towels provided. Gas rings, electric oven, microwave, fridge/freezer, washing machine. NB The steps to mezzanine are quite steep. No bath, only a shower. NB There is wifi but being in the country it is not strong enough to download movies etc
  • The barn is a lovely space in a great location and with fabulous facilities. We spent our weekend hiding away from 'Storm Dennis' and the wood burner and full kitchen made all the difference. We'd have no hesitation in recommending to future guests and we'll definitely be returning. Many thanks Cara.

    Sarah & Nigel2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Super space. Lovely wood burner. Peaceful and quiet.

    Rebecca2020-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely lovely place, can’t thank Stuart and Cara enough for there hospitality, they went beyond the call of duty to accommodate us and couldn’t fault anything about the place absolutely amazing people, will definitely be going back

    Mike2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful time here. Great location and welcoming hosts.

    Anna2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • A place of ultimate relaxation and switch off. We had a wonderful time at Cara’s barn, and would definitely recommend a visit!

    Joan2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • Very quiet location. Chance to spot wildlife if you're interested, e.g. rabbits, birds, deer. Reccomend to bring wellies/boots to enjoy the surrounding fields despite wet weather

    Jarrett2019-12-26T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic location. Wonderful barn conversion. Beautifully renovated and with everything you need for a comfortable stay. Would highly recommend.

    Cavell2019-12-18T00:00:00Z
  • Couldn’t recommend the barn highly enough! What a delightful space to get some peace and quiet. It’s beautiful and secluded and basically a perfect base for exploring an awesome corner of England. Make sure to take advantage of the wood burning stove and if you’re into it - the clay pigeon shooting on offer. It’s tricky but so much fun (after all there really aren’t enough places on Airbnb that give you access to a shotgun)

    Shaftesbury, England, United Kingdom

    A self contained hilltop retreat with stunning panoramic rural views. The Pink Tower is a wooden octagonal building attached to the owners cottage on a working farm (pigs, sheep, arable). Set a quarter of a mile along the ancient OxDrove renowned for beautiful walks, it is situated right on the borders of Wiltshire, Dorset and Hampshire.
    Light, airy living area and kitchen is located on the top floor with the bedroom and bathroom downstairs. Private entrance gate off the track leads into a small enclosed garden with gravel areas and flower beds. Two wooden steps lead onto decking and the property's own front door.
  • Great quirky place to stay in tranquil location. Hope to go back in the summer to make the most of the balconies for breakfast or drinks in the evening overlooking the garden and surrounding countryside.

    Tony2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • A unique and special place with amazing design. Linda is a lovely host. Waking up to nothing but birdsong on Sunday morning was wonderful. This is a superb location, close to several historical sites, walks, lovely restaurants and pubs...a gem.

    Kiran2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely few nights at the Pink Tower. Found it difficult to find but it was very dark when we arrived! The place was very clean and Linda was very helpful. The tower is about 20 mins drive from anything but this was fine for us. Overall very cosy..bed was especially cosy and not built for anyone over 6 foot! Hopefully we will be able to return one day.

    Lydia2020-02-19T00:00:00Z

    Jack2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • Pink Tower was absolutely delightful for a very relaxing weekend. It has everything we needed as we had decided to have a self catering weekend. However our host Linda also recommended local pubs to eat to help us anyway. Very quiet location so very peaceful. Only 20 mins from Salisbury. Would definitely book again. Thank you Linda.

    Wise Cottage is a 250 year old cottage with a boutique feel and sweeping views situated in a beautiful village near Shaftesbury, Dorset. The cottage sleeps four, 1 large master bedroom with a super kingsize bed and a small bedroom with adult bunks (plus a guest bed for a fifth guest). Well behaved dogs are welcome! Organic toiletries, bath robes, well equipped kitchen, wood burner, super fast Wifi, garden, beautiful walks straight out of the front door, use of local tennis club.
    ** Covid 19 update** We understand the concern you may have about a holiday now and the closure of pubs and restaurants. What we can say is that most of the wonderful eateries around us are offering a take away service, some of them with free delivery, and so you can enjoy restaurant quality food at home, or eaten in the garden (big table and benches). We have added some of our favourites in the 'other things to note' section. There are many National Trust places around us that are open and some are waiving entry fees. Wonderful walks straight out of the front door as well of course. There is a large sitting room with oak dining table and contemporary chairs, a well fitted kitchen with washing machine, dishwasher and fridge/freezer. The main bedroom has an upholstered Super kingsize bed with Vi Spring mattress, high quality microfibre duvets and bed linens. The second bedroom has full size bunk beds. Polished wooden floors, Roger Oates runners, sisal flooring and soft Moroccan rugs make up the flooring in the cottage. The bathroom has a pressurised shower and bath. Plenty of towels are provided as well as an organic soaps and shampoo range. The bathroom is situated downstairs opposite the kitchen. The garden is situated up steps from the cottage, it is probably not easily accessed by anyone disabled or infirm. It is a cottage garden, not highly manicured but with wonderful views in every direction. A table and chairs and a barbecue and tongs are also provided. There is a side access to the garden and it is fenced, so will contain a not overly ambitious dog. There is complimentary use of local tennis courts at Pythouse Club, about a two mile drive from the cottage. Please bring your own raquets and balls! Wonderful Pythouse Walled Garden is minutes from the courts for coffees and lunches. The cottage has a Samsung 32" smart TV with all the catch up services as well as Netflix and Amazon, super fast broad band, a small office with desk. Mobile reception is good, but patchy in the downstairs rooms. There is a wood burner and kindling/logs for the first night or two (bags of logs and kindling are sold at the shop a few yards from the cottage), iPod dock, Roberts radio, smart TV, towels, high quality linen and bathrobes. The kitchen is fully equipped with all china and cutlery, pans, casserole dishes, salad bowls, a Nespresso coffee maker (with coffee capsules!) and there is a supply of tea bags, coffee, sugar, olive oil, flour, herbs and salt and pepper to start you off. We always leave a breakfast pack of fresh local bread, home made jam, butter and milk. A folding guest bed can be put up in the sitting room or master bedroom for a fifth person which is fine for a night or two, but unless a young child, it is not ideally suited for five people.
    The cottage is set in the beautiful village of East Knoyle (birthplace of Sir Christopher Wren) on the Dorset/Wiltshire border, amid rolling scenery. The village has an award winning community shop (a few yards from the cottage) and an excellent pub, as well as a playground and endless footpaths through fields and woods for dog walking. You will have guest membership of our local tennis club at Pythouse, a couple of miles from the cottage. If you wish to explore the West Country there are few better places to be situated. The Georgian city of Bath is 20 miles away, Salisbury 17 miles, the hilltop town of Shaftesbury with it's famous monastery ruins and Gold Hill is 4 miles and the Jurassic coast an hour's drive. Longleat and Centre Parks is only 8 miles away. There are numerous stately homes (Longleat being the most famous), castles and gardens within easy striking distance, some a couple of miles from the cottage and superb gastro pubs and restaurants nearby. There is plenty of information in the cottage and suggestions of where to visit, where to eat and where to shop. Just an hour away is the New Forest which is great to explore on foot or by bike. There are maps in the house and you can rent bikes at the wonderfully helpful Forest Leisure Cycling in Burley where there are also loads of cafes, pubs & shops. Flying Experiences at Compton Abbas Airfield - from flying in vintage aircraft and driving classic cars to the airfield for champagne lunch... and flying lessons. Dorset Art Weeks: For two weeks every year (Typically end of May & beginning June) Artists all over Dorset open up their homes and studios to visitors to browse their work, learn about their techniques and inspiration and purchase direct from the artists themselves. There are also two extraordinary contemporary galleries with excellent cafes/restaurants nearby - Messums in Tisbury and Hauser and Wirth in Bruton - both definitely worth a visit.
  • Beautiful little cottage, wonderfully comfy beds, peace and quiet, great walks in the countryside and really useful local tips from Vanessa. Thank you so much - we really enjoyed our stay and would love to come back!

  • Lovely little cottage in village only stated 2 nights but would have liked longer - recommended for peace and tranquility

    Vanessa2020-03-18T00:00:00Z
  • Such a lovely cottage, loved the little touches like fresh bread (amazing when we came in late and stressed from London), butter, milk and jam. Fireplace was just the ticket for a weekend away, and host was kind when we were a little tardy and reluctant to leave on Sunday. Recommended :)

    Gen2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • A warm cosy cottage in a great location with a wonderful local village shop

    Sophie2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • First stay in this delightful cottage and it didn’t disappoint. The lovely little additions of a welcome pack were wonderful and we also appreciated the Complementary shower gel, hand wash and hand cream. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this cosy cottage and certainly want to return again. It was the perfect break just what we were looking for

    Les2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Would definitely recommend to others. Loved every minute of our stay. Vanessa's little extra touches made us feel really welcome. The cottage was so cosy and comfortable, and the local shop has everything you could ever need! :)

There is also a "Thai kitchen" restaurant within 15mins walking distance - bear in mind that this restaurant only take cash, or they send you to the co-op to get cash out!

  • Beautiful and spacious cottage. Great garden with plenty of privacy

    Robert2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay. Ideal for our group of 8 including using the shepherds hut.

    David2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at Gable Cottage for a winter weekend away. It was such a cosy place to stay and had a lovely log burner which was perfect for those dark winter nights. It’s tastefully decorated inside with spacious bedrooms and the shepherds hut is very sweet! There are miles of walks and bridleways straight from the front door, beautiful views and a friendly local pub with good traditional food. There was also a welcome food hamper which was a lovely thoughtful touch. Would definitely recommend and we all hope to stay again.

    Tamsin2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely weekend in Louise's cottage, the welcome hamper was an especially nice touch!

    Wayne2019-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • The house is in beautiful surroundings, it was perfect for our stay. It was very clean and well stocked with fresh flowers! The garden was lovely and the house had an elevated position, affording lovely views. Theres a nice pub just a few minutes from the house. We would love to come back.

    Thomas2019-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • Great house in an oasis of peace. The cottage is traditional and very well equipped. It’s in on its own piece of land in a very small village. You oversee the beautiful rolling hills of England. The bathroom is basic, but has a nice warm shower/bath. There’s one toilet, in the bathroom, which can be a bit minimal with a family. The village is central and the coast, like Poole or beautiful Weymouth can be reached within an hour drive. Alternatively, the Cotswolds are within an hour drive as well. I warmly recommend this place. Louise is a great host who is very responsive.

    Ronald2019-08-08T00:00:00Z
  • This cottage is a wonderful place to relax. Louise kept in touch before and during our stay to make sure everything was ok, and was quick to provide us with any requests. We enjoyed a very peaceful weekend and made the most of the outside tables for evening meals. There are lovely walks in the area too. It was a perfect place for families, we went with two babies and a dog and the space was great. Would definitely recommend and will be returning in the future. Thank you!

  • We had a lovely weekend stay here. The space is clean, cosy, and well kitted out for its size. Only one note I would add is the ceilings are quite low so you might find yourself ducking if you're a giant like myself, should be fine for all normal sized people though! Would recommend the place to others.

    Joseph2020-02-16T00:00:00Z

    Peter2019-10-14T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely place, as other have said- don't underestimate the steps. Getting your stuff down is easy but dragging it back up again was more difficult. Nice to have an oven and washing machine to use should we of needed too and a fridge! Fully read the directions from Louis, took us about 4 attempts going up and down the road continually turning around to find the turning. The image on Google maps is a lie haha other than that absolutely beautiful!!

    Ruby2019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • The Retreat was a perfect find for us as a base to explore the area a little on a short break. Louis was a very welcoming host and his set up has been very thoughtfully put together, providing home from home comforts. We certainly hope to return again!

    David2019-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • What’s a place, where to start... Louis welcomed us in person and showed us the accommodation, the communication was perfect from the start to the end. You’ll be amazed by the driveway and the garden, and nothing can beat the view!!! We’ve enjoyed our stay so much, the cat Jess and the dog Dora have shown us the best hospitality in Dorset!! We enjoyed playing with them before going for our adventure! The location is perfect if you want to explore Dorset and Wiltshire! There are a few lovely pubs around, we have tried The Grove Arms where they do yummy food in big portions! The accommodation itself is clean and comfortable, Louis even provided a welcome pack! Thank you Louis for our lovely stay!! Highly recommended this place to anyone who would like to explore the beautiful surroundings!!

    Mathew2019-08-01T00:00:00Z

    Rebecca2019-07-27T00:00:00Z
  • This was our first Airbnb experience! We were impressed. Spotlessly clean with everything you could possibly need and a lovely welcome pack. There are a few steps to apartment but they're not too steep and there are handrails. The little courtyard off the bedroom is cute and when the sun is shining it's lovely to sit there with a cuppa! Louis's garden is very pretty with beautiful views. Ah and Louis's little dog is very sweet and incredibly well behaved.

  • If you’re looking for a perfect place to stay in a superb location then look no further than The Annex in Shaftesbury. Ruth and Dennis have equipped The Annex to an extremely high standard. It was a pleasure to come home after a day’s exploring and relax in the comfortable, quiet and spacious accommodation. They provided milk , tea, coffee and biscuits to get us started .. and a beautifully wrapped box of chocolates for my birthday. A lovely touch! The Annex is an easy walk into Shaftesbury with its famous Gold Hill. Check out the Shaftesbury Arts Centre for a variety of entertainment. Only a short drive is Sherborne... what a town! ... and of course the Dorset coast. We will certainly visit again. Thank you Ruth and Dennis.

  • What to say? Because airbnb is peer to peer, must people are quite gentle in their reviews. So it can be quite hard to tell how honest people are being. The reviews for Jeni's place are completely accurate. It's lovely. Cost, clean, everything you'd want and Jeni is, by far, the best Airbnb host I've ever had. She's there for a chat if you want it but not in your face. I felt so comfortable there. Just lovely.

    Christine2019-08-07T00:00:00Z
  • Really enjoyed my stay with Jeni. It was my first experience of an Airbnb, I booked it as a cost effective option close to Parajet where I was doing a 6 day course. Jeni was a great host, she couldn't do enough to make me feel comfortable and welcome. The facilities were perfect, clean and had loads of really nice touches to make my stay a real pleasure. Would love to stay with Jeni again and definitely recommend her as a perfect host! Thanks.

  • I have never stayed in an Airbnb before. I was quite nervous. I couldn’t have asked for a better home to stay in. Diana was so kind and welcoming . Nothing was too much trouble for her. My room was perfect and cosy. I had everything I could want and need. She really made me feel comfortable with coming and going as I pleased. I immediately felt super comfy which was so great. She is an outstanding host to open her home with that amount of warmth to strangers. She’s for sure the perfect kind of person for doing Airbnb. The location was perfect for me. Staying here meant I could be really close to my children which meant it was so convenient to me. So this was awesome and I’ll for sure book again next time I go to see them. Oh also the amazing dawn chorus I could hear each morning was wonderful not to mention all the Tawny owls hooting everywhere ....beautiful.. So I highly suggest sleeping with the window open so you get to wake up the stunning chorus of the local birds, there is no greater way to wake up in my books! Thank you Diana.

    Donhead St. Andrew, near Shaftesbury, England, United Kingdom

    In beautiful countryside, this is a newly built cottage on the site of our old Tractor Shed close to our farmyard. Comfortable & cosy. Wander around our farm & garden. Excellent local pubs. Watch the stars. Fantastic place to chill. Organic farm and we sell our own grass fed Red Poll beef and eggs from our wandering chickens.
    A modern rebuild of our old Tractor Shed on our organic farm, deep in the county of Wiltshire and near to Stonehenge, Salisbury, Bath and the south coast. If you like the countryside, you will like it here! There's lots to do tourist wise in the area and fantastic walks nearby through this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (official designation!). The accommodation is very comfortable with a 5 foot double bed, ensuite shower room, living room with kitchen area and outside terrace. It has underfloor central heating so is cosy throughout the winter. We have a herd of Red Poll cattle here and chickens roam freely in our fields, barns and woodland. If you like fishing, we have our own trout lake for your use at an extra charge of £30 per half day. If you are part of a bigger party than 2 people, we also have a 3 double bedroomed apartement and another 1 bedroomed one in our lovely garden. We also have bed and breakfast in our 17th century farmhouse. We are busy with the farm and animals but enjoy welcoming guests to this magical spot. If you want to eat out, there are several excellent pub restaurants within 5 miles and Shaftesbury with its many eating places and markets is just 6 miles away. Unfortunately, being right out in the countryside means you need your own transport though there is a main line from London train station at Tisbury 3 miles away.
    Cools Farm is in the depths of the Wiltshire countryside. Lots of people pass down to the West Country on the A303 and miss out on this beautiful area. Yet, we are very accessible 4 miles south of A303 and 3 miles from mainline station at Tisbury. We love looking after our cattle and living in a lovely C17th stone farmhouse. We enjoy sharing this beautiful spot with interesting guests.
  • Comfortable stay, beautiful location - very happy here!

    Sarah2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely quaint accommodation, everything you need for a few days away . The Lamb ( Hindon ) was very good for food . Lovely to hear the cows and cockerel in the mornings . Would definitely stay again

    Tracey2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely time staying at Cools Farm for a wedding. The bed was extremely comfortable, the kitchen was well equipped (we bought two steaks from the farm for dinner one evening) and Maggie was very helpful, lending us an iron when we needed one. I recommend paying extra for breakfast - it was delicious.

    Hannah2019-08-04T00:00:00Z

    Elias2018-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • Ruth place was awsome, she was really friendly. My little dog was welcome to roam around the house. The room was amazing - big, warm, comfy bed and great bathroom. Breakfast was great. Nice quiet location. Would definitely recommend.

    Nina2018-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • Stayed with Ruth and the team (two dogs) for the long term. She is so welcoming, the rooms are gorgeous, the pooches are great entertainment and loveable (also listen to their momma and well behaved if you're not keen on dogs), Ruth is a queen in the kitchen and had many chats in the evening with her over a gin or two in the recliner by the fire watching The Chase! There's plenty available in the kitchen for tea/coffee breakfast, room for parking and Ruth is always available for a chat but also gives you your privacy if you prefer (for a nap in my case!). Highly recommended and hopefully see her in the new year!

    Nikki2018-12-21T00:00:00Z

    The vintage hideaway is a self contained annexe attached to my house. It is light airy and comfortable, you have a bed sitting room , kitchenette and shower room. There is access from the bedroom to a seating area on the deck at the back over looking an area of outstanding natural beauty. The house is close to lovely walks and the historic town of Shaftesbury with a variety of cafes , individual shops and pubs, and of course Gold Hill.
    The area of Cranborne Chase to the south and east of the house is currently awaiting international dark sky reserve status for the star gazing enthusiasts. There is also a small airfield locally offering wing walking! and a great lunch.
  • Would highly recommend Jo's place. Cosy and quirky with great views - the ideal hideaway! We also took advantage of the massage from Jessie which was great. Thank you

    Josh2020-03-01T00:00:00Z

    Luke2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely place, the space is so interesting and the view is just incredible!

    Leanne2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at Jo's will always be special to us. We got engaged just before arriving at Jo's for the evening. We decided against going out for a fancy meal, and instead ordered a take-away to The Vintage Hideaway (there's only one that would deliver to the location but it was delicious!) and played a board game (our own). It was the most perfect evening, made even more perfect by being completely off grid due to lack of phone signal. The view from the bedroom was absolutely spectacular, even on the overcast day we stayed. The croissants were an adorable touch and we loved having those in bed the following morning admiring the view. The only thing to be aware of is the complete lack of phone signal, it's great if that is what your looking for but the WiFi was also pretty rubbish, only getting signal right by the front door. Despite the poor signal and WiFi, we absolutely loved our stay at The Vintage Hideaway and we will, for sure, be back!!

    Catherine2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • A really memorable stay. Cozy cabin style place in an awesome rural setting with lots of nice touches inside.

    James2019-12-07T00:00:00Z

    Paul2019-11-22T00:00:00Z
  • We had an absolutely wonderful weekend at Jo's place- what a beautiful find!! Jo was fantastic at communicating and was very accommodating with our last minute changing of timings when visiting for our friends wedding. Her directions were clear and easy to follow (even in the dark!). The vintage hideaway is lovely and all the thoughtful little touches were very much appreciated. It's a shame we didn't have the best weather to enjoy the beautiful terrace area but the views are amazing. Would highly recommend- thanks for a great stay.

    Claire2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • Jo’s place was beautiful and in a lovely location. She was really welcoming and had great advice for places to visit in the area. There were lots of lovely extra touches, the croissants left for breakfast were particularly appreciated! We would definitely stay again.

    A homely 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom self contained holiday let on the Dorset / Wiltshire border. Perfect for rest, relaxation and as a base to explore the South West and the English Countryside.
    The Farm has been in the family for 3 generations and The Bee House was a fond name for the building where our Grandfather kept his Bee Keeping supplies. Although completely 'Bee Free' now, we kept the name and tradition behind this 2015 renovated self catering cottage. The cottage is entirely self- contained. It's fully equipped with kitchen, linens and everything and anything you may need. We hope you feel that it's a home away from a home. We are next door (completely detached).. so will be there to check you in if required or answer any questions, otherwise you are entirely self contained. Nestled in the beautiful Dorset countryside in the village of Semley, a few miles from the market town of Shaftesbury. It's perfectly situated to explore Dorset, Wiltshire and the South West of England. It's only a short 25 minute drive to Salisbury and Stonehenge or hop on a train and be in Central London within 2.5 hours. Tisbury Train Station is a 10 - 15 minute drive away (we can assist with taxis / pick ups if necessary) Please treat our house as a home away from home. When we're not doing Air BNB our family from out of town stay here.. so please consider yourself a friend with access to DVD's, board games, crib, childrens toys etc. We're happy to answer any questions or help with any needs while you're here. Need a ride / babysitter.. we're happy to accommodate, just let us know. Please note that when calculating your guest numbers - children occupying beds will be charged for at the nightly rate. There is also a sturdy travel cot available with linen free of charge to use for babies and small toddlers. Strictly no pets thank you. Smoking is strictly forbidden inside the house.

We are also less than an hour away from the coast. The lovely sandy beaches of Sandbanks, Studland, Weymouth and Bournemouth to name a few.
  • A fantastic abode away from home. Highly rate it. Amazing view with lots of amenities.

    Srikant2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed atJudi's place for 3 nights in February and had an absolutely amazing time. Despite of not the best weather the place provided everythig we wanted, piece, tranquility and outstanding views from the house. Judi welcomed us with a delicious lemon cake and lots of tips on what to do in the area. The place is very cosy and looks even better than on photos. View from the property is outstanding and you can enjoy it over a nice breakfast from the kitchen area or a glass of wine from the living room :) Car is definitely needed. There is a small local shop in 2 mins drive but the selection is limited. If you want to do bigger shopping you need to go to town (10 min). There are lots of nice walks around so you can explore nature and relax. Overall wonderful experience and highly recommended. Thank you Judi and Andre for your hospitality.

    Magda2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • The bee House was such a lovely, cosy warm house. We had such a lovely break, the view was amazing, the weather wasn’t so but the house been so beautiful and welcoming we didn’t really care a out the weather. we will for sure be back again. Judi was an amazing host. ♥️♥️

    Avan2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • What a fantastic setting ,wonderful view , the property is well proportioned ,all five of us agreed that we will be paying another visit in the near future , great host , Thanks Judi !

    Graham2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • What a wonderful five-night stay we had at the Beehouse! We were met by Judi, who showed us around and provided lots of information about Semley and surrounds. The Beehouse is comfortable and spacious, with everything a family on holiday needs, including board games and children’s books. The bungalow has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a nicely appointed kitchen, dining room, spacious lounge and a fabulous outdoor area, which would be perfect in summer. Everything worked as it should, including flawless wi-fi. The Beehouse is surrounded by nature and silence - just wonderful! We spotted pheasants wandering about each morning. The bungalow is a mile or so from Semley village - a really lovely walk. Do visit the local cafe and the dairy. We walked to the Donheads (two local villages) along quiet country lanes (you could take walking tracks but in winter they are very muddy). There is a big Tesco in Shaftesbury (and other supermarkets) for your shopping needs. Finally, the Beehouse is perfectly located for drives further afield, for instance only 30 miles or so from Stonehenge. If you have time, consider walking to Stonehenge from Woodhenge, following the National Trust designated walk. It was an absolute highlight of our holiday.

    Joseph2020-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • Judi’s place is fantastic - very clean, tidy, and has everything you need including a great record collection. Very nice, peaceful location with nice views. Judi also made us a cake which was a nice touch. We would recommend staying there

    Richard + Rosie2020-01-01T00:00:00Z

  • This is fantastic place with all needed facilities/amenities (and more) and breathtaking views! Location is also great! Judi is an amazing host, quick responder, kind and easy to communicate with. She even left milk and a home made cake to welcome us! We travelled with our 3 month old baby and he slept very well in the cot provided. We shall come back!

    The cottage that we believe was built in 1780. Set in the beautiful Dorset countryside. Plenty of local walks, to check out our stunning countryside. We are a 10 minute walk to the North Dorset Trailway. Unfortunately there is no pub in the village, we are a 15-20 minute walk to the nearest pub The White Horse in Stourpaine (highly recommend). Conveniently situated for Blandford Camp and the Royal signals museum, the Great Dorset Steam Fair and just a stones throw away from Bryanston School.
    The room is on the ground floor, the cottage used to be the local village shop. Your room is where the shop front was situated. The room is very cosy with your own en-suite shower, toilet and basin. There is a little wardrobe. Window is rather low, we have provided a blackout blind and curtains. There is a fan fixed to the wall for the more muggy evenings.
    We are a tiny village, set in the beautiful rolling Dorset countryside. We are a friendly bunch, especially if you have a pooch or 2. There are some amazing walks right on our doorstep and the North Dorset Trailway within walking/cycling distance. If you have a National Trust membership there is so much to do in the area, we especially like Corfe Castle, Stourhead and Kingston Lacy.
  • A delightful find. Everything you would want and exceptional value. A beautiful part of the country and extremely lovely helpful hosts.

    Carolyn2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely clean cosy room in a family home full of nice touches (plentiful toiletries, water by bed, phone chargers etc). Tea and coffee always available and a plentiful breakfast. The room and dining area situated on one 'side' of the house with own entrance so private with as little or much interaction with the hosts as you wanted. Treena and Aubrey (and Spud, the cool dog) were lovely and friendly, very helpful even offering us a lift to our local party venue. Thankyou

    Tony2020-01-25T00:00:00Z

    The room is an airy attic room with a comfy double bed and hanging space and a view over the village to the countryside. The bathroom is shared with the host.
    The room is at the top of the house (2 flights up) with fairly steep stairs but good handrails. Please note that the bathroom/shower is one floor down. There is a good provision of essentials (including things you may have forgotten) and there are tea and coffee making facilities. A small selection of crockery/cutlery and glassware is also provided ....including a bottle opener/corkscrew. The table is a good size for either working or dining. There is also a small ironing board and iron, hairdryer, chargers and fan. The house is approximately 5mins from the High Street with a good selection of shops and eating places. This is a cat friendly house but they do not have access to the upper floors.
    Tisbury is a wonderful village with plenty of shops and a prestigious gallery. In the summer months we have an open air pool which is a short walk away. It is well placed for exploring many historic sites and houses and only 17miles from Salisbury and 50mins from the nearest coastline.
  • A comfortable, cozy and attractive room. Everything from arrival to departure was easy and pleasant.

Tracy took care for some cute details like a poem of the day and cups for a warm drink-on-the-go. The room is silent, Tisbury is picturesque and quiet with enough places to eat and shop. Tracy was so attentive to check in advance which restaurants were open. We had a nice dinner at The Boot Inn. Shortly: we felt welcome and at home

  • Always a pleasure to stay at Debs! A home away from home. Highly recommend!

  • I would highly recommend Deb's place. Always a warm welcome, the property is lovely, cosy and unusual as a converted village hall in a great location. Plus Deb's was an attentive host and everything you need is well catered for.

  • Second time staying at Debs. Always a pleasure staying there, great host. Highly recommend!!

    Linsay2019-10-12T00:00:00Z
  • Debs was such a wonderful host though we didn't see each other much due to my work schedule. Her home is beautiful and uniquely decorated! The bed was so comfortable!! Highly recommend and I would definitely return if I'm ever in the area. Many thanks again Debs

    Linsay2019-08-31T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed our stay in Debs house We definitely come back

    Mounir2019-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • The Old Village Hall was up there with our best ever Airbnb stays. Debs made us feel so welcome, and her home was kitted out with all that we needed for our 14 month old baby. The house is peaceful and characterful, and in a lovely village. Debs' tips for the area were helpful, and it was great spending time chatting to her. We'd love to return in the future.

    LAurence2019-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • We unfortunately didn't get to meet Deb's on our visit, the photo's don't do her home justice, she left us to our own devices, which was great but no instructions on how to use the AGA lol. Had a fantastic time and that bed is to die for, this was our first time using airb&b and we weren't disappointed

    Maryann2019-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • I stayed for three weeks and loved every part of it. Debbie is a great hostess, balancing privacy and hospitality. The facilities are tidy and made me feel at home. I wouldn't think twice if I need a place to stay again!

    Graeme2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • A perfect little studio flat to stay in if you wish to explore the south coast and local areas.

    Wendy2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • Again, another great stay, everything and more then you could ask for.

    Paul2020-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • A breath of fresh air and so close to Dorset and even Bath. Everything was prepared as we we're some close friends that the owner hasn't seen for years. I highly recommend it.

  • This is a wonderful and cosy place to stay. Well equipped and really clean. The wood burner and shower are a real feature. There are many other ‘nice’ touches! Charlie and Ali are great hosts too. We would highly recommend this as a place to relax and enjoy the Dorset countryside.

    Katie2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Would recommend 100% My partner and I are already working out/considering when we could return for longer. Beautiful place to stay both inside and out, even in February/March with bits of wind and rain still incredible. Woke up early one day to travel to Lulworth Cove for the sunrise, spent time in front of the log burner, went on local walks. Don't hesitate just book!

    Alex2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Great space, very comfortable, and spotlessly clean with lots of thoughtful extras. The Cartshed is modern (fantastic shower!), but cosy (we loved the wood fire). We stayed there for a family wedding and couldn't have been happier with our choice! An oasis of peace, quiet and calm during an amazingly busy, joyous and hectic weekend of celebrations. Charlie and Ali truly were the best of Super Hosts - thank you both !

    Caroline2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • We came to stay at the Cartshed after a very long January! We just needed to get away somewhere peaceful and relaxing - it did not disappoint. Charlie and Ali are the perfect hosts and the local area is a perfect place get away from everything. I simply cannot praise everything enough!

    Lauren2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • My wife and I stayed at the Cartshed to recover from the Christmas rush. We had a lovely stay, relaxing in front of the fire and going for walks. The place was clean, well equipped and comfortable. We'd recommend staying at the Cartshed to anyone who likes local farm shops, long walks and getting away from the busyness of life.

    Seamus2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • A really stylish property in a good location to explore North Dorset. Friendly helpful hosts. Good value for money.

    Robert2019-12-11T00:00:00Z
  • I simply cannot fault our stay at The Cartshed. The pictures do not do this beautiful place justice! The Cartshed was well equipped, very clean and the decor was very nice and luxurious. The Christmas tree was a nice touch too! Charlie and Ali came down to greet us on arrival explained a few things to us and gave us very good recommendations on what to do around the surroundings areas, although they had created a clear book for guidance too. The shower was very lovely and the fire was a perfect feature for late November/December nights. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to anyone who wants a quiet weekend away. Thank you Charlie and Ali we hope to return in the new year! :)

    Emilie2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage is absolutely stunning, and looked just as good as the photos show (if not better). The kitchen had every amenity you could need, and was stocked with tea, coffee, salt, pepper and cleaning products. The bathroom was spotlessly clean and we were provided with towels and a bathrobe. We loved the fireplace and sat around it for most of our trip as it was so warm and cosy. Check-in and check-out was easy through a lock box. Though the cottage was close to other homes, we still felt very secluded. There are pubs within driving distance and there is also a massive Tesco not far so you don't have to worry about shopping before you go. We would definitely go again.

    Nr Blandford , Dorset, United Kingdom

    Set in the heart of beautiful little village of Hinton Martell, 3 miles from the historic town of Wimborne, in the heart of the country side With far reaching picturesque countryside views, it is also no more than a half an hour drive from the Jurassic Coast where you will find many stunning beaches set along the South West Coast Path. Dorset has a well-deserved reputation for eateries, from award-winning pubs and seafood restaurants to tearooms from a by-gone era.
    The annexe is the guest accommodation at Magdalene cottage and is set aside from the house, above the garage. It is accessed through the private access and up some stairs, which, regrettably is not suitable for wheelchair users. The annexe itself, sleeps 2 people in a king size bed and has a shower room with toilet and a small kitchen with sink, fridge and separate seating area. There is a television in the bedroom. Cooking facilities comprise a microwave and there is a supply of tea and coffee in the kitchen. A choice of cooked or continental breakfast is available in the main house. Dogs can be accommodated by prior agreement at an additional charge of £5 per night, payable on arrival. Guest access via private entrance from the front of house . There is a garden that guests are welcome to enjoy. In addition, there are also laundry facilities that are available. Other things to note Access to the annexe is through the garden and up some stairs, it is therefore, regrettably, not wheel-chair friendly.
    Quiet village , relaxed pace of life
  • It’s a beautiful place with everything that you need for a short stay. So happy to fund this gem and will definitely stay again

    Luke2020-03-16T00:00:00Z

    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.
    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.
    This is a quite 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.
  • Great place, tucked out of the way but really close to some nice towns and a lovely little pub a short walk away. Really helpful host with loads of family games and local guide books there to use. Thank you Tess

    Jim2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Tess went over & above to accommodate our individual needs. Fresh eggs & milk from her farm, everything had been thought of which allowed us to instantly relax & feel at home. Well done Tess, we'll be certainly staying again & recommend that anybody wishing to have a taste of the countryside should consider 'The Cow Shed' as their first choice x

    Claire2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic airbnb in a wonderful rural location. Warm, friendly welcome from the host and we had everything we needed. Lovely walk to the local pub for lunch too. Highly recommend.

    Clare2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • A wonderfully welcoming cosy cottage that was exactly what we hoped it would be! The farm is tucked away and feels secluded and peaceful. Tess and her family were so helpful and hospitable and let the children meet and cuddle their new puppies. A great few days.

    Lisa2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely stay at The Cowshed. It was a very comfortable place and the beds were so comfortable - we slept so well. Thanks so much for the amazing hospitality

    Freida2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely little cottage, we enjoyed a family break for a long weekend. Cottage has a kitted out kitchen for self catering. Area is cosy and fire is perfect to snuggle up in front of after a windy walk along the beach.

    Megan2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • What a beautiful space the Cow Shed is and wonderfully located if you like peace and quiet. I loved it - Tess is a superb host and the surrounding countryside is as good as it gets. Wonderful

    Carlo2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful couple of days at The Cowshed cottage. Our 2 daughters got to meet all the animals as Tess kindly took us around the farm. We enjoyed walking, relaxing in the cosy cottage and a nice meal at the local pub (which we walked to in torch light). It was a wonderful couple of days.

    Gussage All Saints, England, United Kingdom

    The house is a striking property between the railway and the river and a minutes walk from the lovely high street of Tisbury. A former railway hotel, the house has bags of character with bright rooms and high ceilings. The double bedroom is comfortable and light with a King size bed and right next to the bathroom for your convenience. We are still in the midst of renovations but this will have no impact on your stay. You will love the location, the quiet and the green spaces on our doorstep.
    The bedroom is at the back of the House and we sleep at the front so you will have lots of privacy. Although we are quite close to the railway there are only two trains an hour and they stop about 11pm. We really don't notice them only sometimes when a vintage steam engine thunders past but that is very very rare. If you open your window you will hear the river down below the house and on a Saturday the muffled shouts of football players in the field on the other side of the river but that is about as noisy as it gets. It really is very peaceful. If there is more in your party than two I have another room listed which I only let to friends travelling together as they have to share the bathroom with you. Let me know if you are interested in also booking the adjoining double room and I will unblock it.
    If you are planning to come to Tisbury by train for a weekend wedding or just an overnighter we couldn't be in a more convenient location. Lots of local sights like Messums Art Gallery are within walking distance and Tisbury High Street has a lovely Cafe called Beaton's and a great wine bar/shop called the Bottle Shop. There is also a convenient small Co op and a Boots and the rest are all interesting independent shops including a deli. There are some super places to eat within a five mile radius like The Beckford Inn, Pitt House and Howards House Hotel but a car will be needed (or bike) and reservations advised. If you want to visit Salisbury we are twenty minutes away by train and as the House is so close to the station it couldn't be easier. If you want to you can pick up a coach at Salisbury station to visit Stone Henge, again very convenient and easy. We are just eleven miles from the historic town of Shaftesbury which is always worth a visit and if you want to explore North Dorset and Hardy country that is all within a short driving distance.
  • This is a great place to stay, I have stayed here 4 times since September last year, which is in itself a recommendation. Each time I have been made so welcome by Julie-Ann & George. Though compact Tisbury is a great place for finding delicious or useful and beautiful things. I can recommend Genius Coffee & Beaton’s for food and drinks (the home cooked mini croissant delivered from the oven at Genius on Saturday morning were fantastic!). And excellent locally roasted coffee too. Tisbury Deli is great for different cheeses and other nice things to eat and you can buy a beautiful hand thrown pottery plate to eat them from just a step away from the Deli! I can also recommend a visit to Messums in Wiltshire tithe barn gallery, and the café there is certainly up to the standard of the other places to eat and drink!

    Suzie2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • I’ve just written a comprehensive review as i originally booked single nights.

    Suzie2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Another fantastic stay. So close to our family and a beautiful room. Tisbury is a great spot to visit.

    Emily2020-03-04T00:00:00Z

    Emily2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • This is the 3rd time i have stayed with Julie Ann in the last few months. To get here now I am on autopilot! So glad l didn’t have to look for somewhere else. Thank you yet again Julie Ann!

    Suzie2019-12-10T00:00:00Z
  • The best B&B I have ever stayed in - good size warm bedroom , with table, chairs, kettle, books and an adjacent private good size shower room and wash basin; all in private corridor, with provisions ( like soaps and toiletries ) provided. Owners were friendly and helpful. Parking space adjacent.
