(Reference number: 78864) Stay in this seventeenth-century Grade II-listed farmhouse for a quintessential English country escape. This rural spot is a great choice for larger groups looking for a cosy bolthole – return from a day spent strolling through the myriad of local country lanes and footpaths, and be welcomed in by the crackling inglenook fireplace and cosy living room. There are all sorts of thoughtful touches that your hosts have added, including a welcome hamper with some essentials, cakes, and local produce. So settle in for the night, whether you're sipping alfresco wine on the patio in the warmer months or knocking up a hearty meal in the country-house styled kitchen-come-dining room. Although, with a few great pubs within walking distance, we reckon you'll be eating out most nights. Come morning, active types or those simply feeling adventurous can take a thirty-minute drive to the sublime Jurassic Coast for a memorable day trip. Elsewhere, Barrington House – a National Trust house with gardens open to the public – is a twenty-minute drive from home, and well worth a visit, even if just for the charming tea room. When – weary from walking and full of scones – you do eventually return home, toast up those frozen toes by the wood-burning stove or get into the steamy hot tub for a stargazing session. There are four bedrooms – each with its own en-suite – so everyone has a private and comfortable space to retire to. And if you're planning an escape for up to fourteen guests, the adjacent cottage, Treacle Sponge, is also available to book and is connected by a corridor. Home truths: *This home sleeps a maximum of eight adults – the family room features a bunk-bed for children *You will need a car here as the area is semi-remote – there's parking for up to four cars at the house *Two of the super king-size beds have zip-and-link mattresses *Up to two well-behaved dogs are welcome, though an additional fee applies *If you're bringing little ones along, a baby cot and highchair can be provided by the host *Bicycle hire and catering can be arranged *Short and midweek breaks are available, with a minimum stay of two nights
