Situated close to the delightful village of Mosterton, this self contained semi detached cottage can be found on a working dairy farm. A wing of the owner’s farm house, the property is located on the downs on the borders of West Dorset and South Somerset. The comfortable living space makes for a great relaxing family break. A well equipped, cosy accommodation boasts picturesque views across Axe Valley, and with an open fire and sunny conservatory, the house is full of character.

The property has one double bedroom, and one single with an additional pull-out stacker bed. The bathroom contains a bath, hand held shower, basin and toilet. The ground floor also has a toilet and basin in the utility room. The modern fitted kitchen includes an electric oven, halogen hob, microwave, dishwasher and a fridge freezer. A washing machine can also be found in the utility room. The spacious living area contains a TV with Freeview, a DVD player and an Xbox. The house also has a library of books, DVDs and games available for use.

Whilst staying in this Area of Outstanding Beauty, you can enjoy fresh eggs for breakfast from the farm’s free range hens whilst the children enjoy watching the calves being fed. There are numerous footpaths and walks to explore across this 180 acre farm, and nearby, you can visit Beaminster of Television’s River Cottage. With the Jurassic Coast nearby too, this property is in a great location for exploring what Dorset has to offer.

All fuel, power, a starter pack for the fire, bed linen and towels are included. For families, a cot, highchair and stair gate can also be made available. A shop and pub can be found within a mile of the house. With ample off road parking and the use of a shared garden, the house also has a private sitting space with furniture and the use of a BBQ, great for sitting and admiring the views.

Please note: Farm machinery and animals; please supervise young children and keep dogs on leads at all times. The farm also has its own tested water supply.
