So spacious and lovely
Very much enjoyed our stay, lovely big spaces with peace and quiet.
Quiet but close to main roads and Dorchester.
Perfect weather all week. Great swimming pool and gardens. Nice open plan layout.
Beautiful, cosy well kept property in wonderful surroundings
We had a fantastic Easter break at Ashton Farm, despite the rain!! A beautiful, cosy cottage and a very friendly and helpful owner, Richard. Would recommend the walk up to Maiden Castle Hill fort for a little excercise and breathtaking views. We ventured out to Corfe Castle, Swanage, Lyme Regis and the famous Durdle Door. All about 30-40 mins away by car. A great week!!
Courage Cottage 11/2/18-16/3/18
Courage Cottage is a lovely place to stay I was there whilst on placement in Dorchester. It is a lovely light building with everything you could possibly need.
Lovely modern converted barn
We wanted a relaxing getaway with areas to walk our dogs and we found it in courage cottage. Overall it was good value for money and although it wasn't quite warm enough to use the pool or cold enough for the fire it was nice that this place had both. Maiden castle is only a short walk away as is martins town (20min walk via public footpaths). The local pub, Brewers arms is fantastic and a must visit if you like good home cooked pub food.
Lovely and spacious! Very useful having a washer dryer away from the kitchen area.
Cottage very central to attractions. Kids loved trampoline and pool. Very quiet and peaceful setting.
This quiet valley in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is located between Dorchester and Weymouth and therefore within easy reach of shops, restaurants museums and the numerous seaside activities available in and around Weymouth. The Abbotsbury Swannery and gardens are within easy reach as are many footpaths leading to the coast as well as the many remote beaches reached situated along the famous Jurassic Coastline which is a World Heritage Site. The properties are in the old farmyard and reached down a private road and therefore well away from traffic.
Golf: Several Golf courses within a few miles in stunning scenery
