Milton Mills Cottage is a pretty thatched cottage located just outside the quaint Dorset village of Milton Abbas.  A quintessential cottage with beamed ceilings and an inglenook fire (not in use).  Surrounded by a garden which is perfect for enjoying the Dorset country sounds of bird song whilst eating alfresco.  Running through the centre of the nearby village is arguably one of the prettiest streets in Dorset. Rows of white-washed thatched cottages stretch up the hill to the horizon. A short stroll up `The Street' top of the hill will reward you with a visit to the popular Hambro Arms, a pet and child friendly pub serving a variety of meals and traditional ales. A post office also supplies basic groceries. Milton Abbey, around a half a mile walk from the village is worth a visit if you are interested in history; it has been the site of an Abbey since 933 and the current Abbey dates from around 1309. The market town of Blandford Forum is a short drive away and as well as being good for shopping it is notable for its attractive Georgian architecture which was erected when it was mostly rebuilt after a fire in 1731. With the Dorset coast around 40 minutes away another good option for a day trip is to enjoy the local world heritage coastline.

About the Location

Rows of identical, thatched white cottages line the quaint village street, against the backdrop of unspoilt woodland and countryside; Milton Abbas is the literal definition of a chocolate-box village. When Lord Milton bought his estate, Milton Abbey in the 18th century, the original village of Milton (then Middleton) that lay outside his grand walls just wasn’t attractive enough, so he bought up and demolished all the houses in the space of 15 years and commissioned architect Sir William Chambers to design a new ‘perfect’ village, which is as it stands today. Beautiful thatched village houses that would appear almost like a model village to any passing carriage.
