Mosterton, Dorset, England
With a sunny conservatory looking out onto a well-maintained garden and two comfortable bedrooms, this relaxing property offers well-appointed accommodation for up to four people. This semi-detached Dorset cottage is a self-contained wing of the owner's farmhouse, peacefully situated on a working dairy farm close to the charming village of Mosterton. Positioned on the borders of West Dorset and South Somerset, the cottage offers well-equipped, comfortable accommodation, with views across the Axe Valley, a cosy open fire and sunny conservatory. This is a wonderful place to relax after a day exploring this designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Visitors can enjoy a fresh egg for breakfast from one of the free-range chickens, or watch the calves being fed across this 180-acre farm.
