Motcombe Nursery Pet-Friendly Cottage description

Holiday home
Motcombe Nursery is cosy semi-detached cottage sitting in the village of Motcombe in the West Country. Benefiting from three bedrooms, including one double, one twin and one single, as well as a family bathroom, this cottage can sleep five people. The rest of the cottage comprises a kitchen with AGA, a dining room, a sitting room with an electric fire and a garden room. To the outside of the cottage there is off road parking for two cars and an enclosed lawned garden with patio and furniture. Motcombe Nursery is an ideal Dorset retreat for a family or group of friends, with a wealth of attractions close by including Longleat Safari Park and Stonehenge, plus the ancient town of Shaftsbury, which is just two miles away.

The thriving village of Motcombe lies on the edge of North Dorset's Blackmore Vale, just 2 miles from the ancient hilltop town of Shaftesbury. Motcombe boasts its own friendly community store and Post Office, with a country pub close by. The local town of Shaftesbury, well served by a good range of shops and inns, is perched on a spur of rolling green hills with spectacular views reaching far across the rural landscape. One of the best vantage points is from Gold Hill (the famous ‘Hovis' advert was filmed here) with its quaint, cobbled and very steep street. Nearby, a drive through the picturesque Blackmore Vale, dotted with pretty villages, offers visitors a flavour of the very best of the English countryside. A treat not to be missed!

Explore the fossils and stunning beaches of Dorset's Jurassic Coast, visit historic Sherborne and Shaftesbury, or enjoy the footpaths, country lanes and thatched-roof pubs Dorset offers.

This was the BEST rental ever! Could not believe how comfortable and roomy it was; there was more than enough room for the five of us - just wonderful. The owners were the most wonderful, sweet hosts ever. Really a lovely village and a huge amount of space - will be returning as soon as possible!

We had a great time in Motcombe Nursery! The cottage really catered for all our family's needs and that of our dog. The garden was very big and safe for the children and the dog. The owners were very helpful and friendly. We will definitely be returning!

Location in an unspoilt area of the UK. Motcombe village walks and the enclosed garden were little gems for dog owners. Property owners had a wonderful welcome pack and nothing was too much trouble during our stay.

The house is larger than it looks on the website with more than enough room for 5 people comfortably. All the essentials are provided including a full spice rack and fresh eggs each day. The hosts are a lovely couple there to help with anything but aren't obtrusive.

Lovely property. The owners were the loveliest most helpful people you could wish for. Thoroughly recommended.
