Brewery Stable is a cosy rural retreat from which you can explore the picturesque footpaths and bridleways that extend from the beautiful Ansty village into the expansive Dorset countryside. On entering the cottage you are immediately immersed into the warm welcoming period features.This Dorchester holiday cottage is wonderfully quirky with a long and interesting history - formerly the stables for the family brewery you will see antiques that relate to the cottages past throughout, including the vintage collars the shire horses wore when mashing the hops.
The lounge is simply the perfect place for your family or group to relax whether you are reflecting on your travels of the day or simply enjoying a book in front of the fire. With luxurious sofas, throws and a warm fire you could spend hours catching up with friends and family.
The Range Master in the spacious kitchen will be where you can try out your entertaining skills and whip up a feast, complete with a large table to enjoy the fruits of your labours. That is of course unless you can be tempted by the flagship Hall and Woodhouse pub across the road (where even your pet will be made welcome!)
There are exposed beams and period features in this cottage, with wooden panelling extending onto the first floor. On this level you will find three very characterful, comfortable bedrooms where you can lay your head after a day out in the countryside. Brewery Stable is furnished to a high standard in each room which gives the cottage a homely charm that will make your break in the Dorset countryside an indulgent experience.
"The cottage was like a home from home! The towels were beautiful, very thick and fluffy. Being able to watch and use Sky+ in the evenings was a bonus and the internet too! The character and furnishings made the cottage very homely. We would recommend this to anyone. There is a very well stocked farm shop/ post office close by, and a pub/restaurant across the road for any days that you do not go out! On the whole, a fantastic holiday was had by all!"Mrs Futers
"The owner of the property was there to greet us as we arrived. The cosiness and comfort of the cottage. The space and peace and quiet. The stunning countryside and wonderful walking places.This was a perfect, relaxing getaway. The Crown Inn in nearby Winterbourne Strickland does the best food around and very good value."Mrs Cobb
"The best holiday cottage we have stayed in. The location was quiet and with the farm shop and pub for food all within 5 minutes walk, could not be better. Walks without taking the car - our dog loved it."Mr Goulding
"Very warm welcome. Excellent facilities and extremely dog friendly. Owner very accessible but not intrusive. Easy access to many different sights and opportunities with lots of dog walks on the doorstep. Very dog friendly pub opposite the cottage and shop selling everything from eggs to paving slabs next door. Local residents were very welcoming and friendly. Good to have a truly enclosed garden, (two separate areas), that we could allow our greyhound to wander in and out of. Everything you could want included in cottage. Very relaxing and comfortable."Mr Seal
