The Mill House is situated across the garden from the owner's home. The property is located in the heart of Thomas Hardy's Blackmore Vale, Dorset. Surrounded on three sides by water in a beautiful and tranquil situation. If you are looking for peace and quiet you will find it here, as well as Kingfishers, Otters and Deer. It is a short drive to the World Heritage Jurassic coastline and the historic Market Towns of Dorchester and Sherborne - the latter with its famous Abbey acknowledged as one of the most attractive in the country.
As the cottage is surrounded on three sides by the river, this gives you every opportunity to watch the ducks, moorhens, herons and the fish leaping out of the water. Otters have also been spotted on the river banks. Be captivated by the sight of these birds with their young. You may also glimpse other wonderful birds including kingfishers and woodpeckers.
The Mill House is all-inclusive accommodation, with an open fire (logs included), and has wireless broadband internet.
Dorset offers a calendar of local events, a few of which are: the Stock Gaylard Oak Fair every August (approx 2 miles) which also has wonderful grounds and a house that is open to the public.
Other events in the area include Pack Monday in Sherborne, Gold Hill Fair in Shaftesbury (home of the award-winning Hovis advert). Further afield you have the Royal Bath and West Show, The Great Dorset Steam Fair and the Dorset County Show to name just a few.
