In a quiet village in Blackmore Vale, the path to this spacious cottage is lined with tulips and vegetables. Easy-going June is a collector of pretty things; art, antiques and china blend charmingly with soft colours and zingy kilims. Bedrooms are sunny – one is downstairs (en suite) with a private entrance; there’s a sweet very comfy shepherd’s hut too if you fancy a night under the stars and sunset views. Breakfasts are generous; hut dwellers can come in to the dining room or have a hamper delivered. Visit Sherborne (abbey, castle, smart shops), walk from the gate to Duncliffe Wood. Return to a tiny snug sitting room. Perfect Dorset B&B!
