River Cottage sits in an exclusive spot in Dorset, neighbouring the historic stately home of Athelhampton House. Reached by bridge over the stream which runs through the extended garden of the cottage. The cottage offers a private rural setting where you can indulge yourself in unending golf practise on the properties' private 9 tee, three hole golf course.
This Dorchester holiday cottage provides comfortable countryside style with en suite bathrooms for each bedroom. From the sitting-room's French windows walk out onto the private patio where the tranquillity of the countryside setting can be enjoyed. Nestled under a thatched roof, this is a unique Dorset cottage perfect for relaxing into a slower pace of life.
"Great place to visit and very well priced. The gardens are well kept with many unusual plants and designs. The hospitality is superb and the gift shop has something for everyone."Anonymous
