About Eton Cottage

Eton Cottage has recently been refurbished to the highest standard and enjoys a great mix of 'picture postcard' thatched cottage with a modern and stylish interior. With stunning local walks from the door over the beautiful rolling chalk downland of the ancient Cranborne Chase, and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The cottage offers 2 double bedrooms, one of which is located on the ground floor and a cosy sitting/dining room with stylish log burning stove.
A small private garden offers the perfect place to enjoy a drink, eat at or relax in whilst soaking up this rural retreat!

The cottage is within an easy level walk to an award winning pub, 'The Museum Inn'. Farnham is a small rural village in north Dorset and is a great starting point to explore some of the wonderful countryside with miles of footpaths to roam right on the doorstep.

A little further afield is the pretty town of Shaftsbury and the iconic 'Gold Hill' and just half an hour from West Moors Country Park; with a high ropes course, miniature railway and bike hire - making this a great day out for all ages!


Check availability and plan your break

"The owners have made a wonderful job of transforming the cottage and it has a most welcome feeling. It is always a lovely surprise to find a hamper of goodies waiting for you upon arrival, especially with well thought out items which have been locally sourced. Nicky has thought of everything, top quality bedlinen, The White Company bath and shower products and a very comfortable bed. There are some fantastic pubs in the area and The Museum Inn serves a great selection of wines and beers as well as top notch food. I am really looking to going back when the weather is warmer and explore a few more of the wonderful walks and enjoy a relaxing drink in the evening sun sitting on the patio. I can’t recommend the hosts and cottage highly enough, Thank you."
