Deep Dorset with patchwork fields, miles of hedgerows, ancient oaks. Arrive at this farmstead with its old barns and rows of vines, and breathe in the peace. Mary and Nigel are relaxed hosts; find a happy mix of antique and retro, splashes of gingham, artworks, family photos, flowers. Solar heats the water; wood fires keep it all toasty. The elegant sitting room has two tables in the window for sunny breakfasts: seasonal fruit, homemade granola and jams, local bacon, good bread. Explore bluebell woods and footpaths, walk the coastal path. Mary has created a wonderful place to stay, and you can book vineyard tours and tastings too.
