The Anvil description

Situated in a delightful corner of West Dorset, very near the Somerset/Devon border, in the picturesque village of Thorncombe, this converted barn is set in a tranquil location and offers a lovely retreat. On your doorstep, there is great country walking and cycling, and within easy driving distance, Forde Abbey & Gardens and Broadwindsor Craft Centre, with lovely cream teas, are not to be missed. Visit the famous World Heritage Jurassic Coast with its scenic beauty, coastal walks, boating and fossil hunting. Also, discover the popular seaside resorts of Lyme Regis, with its sandy beach, harbour and Cobb, and West Bay, scene of the series ’Broadchurch’. In south Somerset, guests can enjoy the Fleet Air Arm Museum at Yeovilton, many historic houses such as Montacute House, Barrington Court, Tintinhull House and many more. Also in south Somerset, for those with a fascination of classic cars, The Haynes Motor Museum is not far away. Slightly further inland, spend days out at Clarks Factory Village in Street, Glastonbury Tor with its magnificent views and history, or on to Cheddar Gorge & Caves or the historic city of Bath.
