THE OLD STABLES Cottage
4 bedrooms, sleeps 8

The Old Stables is a brilliant base for exploring the area. After a day out, retreat back here and enjoy the views.

In the quaint village of Leigh, just south of the picturesque abbey town of Sherborne in north west Dorset, this converted listed barn is set in an L-shape around a courtyard on one side and with lovely country views over Thomas Hardy’s famous Blackmoor Vale on the other. It offers an excellent holiday base to explore north west Dorset and south Somerset. it has been renovated to a high standard with exposed beams, is tastefully furnished, and has use of a communal games room with a snooker table, table football and darts. Though set on the edge of an organic farm (but in a non working part), the owner would be delighted to show guests around the farm, which is only a short walk away from the cottages.

There is also a small flock of sheep and chickens in the cider orchard close by. There is superb country walking on the doorstep, a village shop within walking distance, golf nearby and water activities such as fishing, yachting, boating, sailing and canoeing at Halstock Reservoir. Within easy driving one can visit the Yeovilton Fleet Air Arm Museum with its prototype of Concorde, the Haynes Motor Museum with its fascinating selection of vintage motor cars, and Montacute House and Gardens (one of the many historic houses in the area). To the north into south Somerset, spend days exploring Glastonbury with its famous and enchanting Tor, Wells cathedral city and Bishops Palace, the famous Cheddar Gorge and Caves, and the Georgian City of Bath with its delightful Roman baths, Pump Room, museums and of course shops and restaurants.

Travel south and the spectacular World Heritage Jurassic Coast and Chesil Beach, with the popular seaside resorts of Lyme Regis, Bridport and Weymouth, all offer many attractions, sights and activities to enjoy, or more locally Sherborne Abbey and Castle (5 miles) and Dorchester market town (12 miles) are not too far. Shop 400 yards, pub 1 mile.
