Our cottage is the perfect place to stay whilst exploring the Dorset countryside and all the attractions it has to offer. There are many beautiful walks to be enjoyed just outside the cottage door and some spectacular walks and cycle rides just a drive away. Short walks just over the way to Duncliffe woods or up to Shaftesbury or across to Gillingham, for further afield maps are available. Cycle routes start in the village.
Whilst staying at Gable Cottage, we recommend a day trip to Stourhead house and gardens. This beautiful National Trust property offers something for everyone! Woodland walks, parkland perfect for picnics, breathtaking gardens and a Palladian mansion featuring such treasures as a Regency library and furniture made by Chippendale.
