    “Accurate description.”

    Well furnished and equipped. Two negative aspects which affected our stay, 1. We needed considerably more heating than provided for by the preprogrammed settings on the Hive central heating control thermostat situated upstairs.

    Well furnished and equipped. Two negative aspects which affected our stay, 1. We needed considerably more heating than provided for by the preprogrammed settings on the Hive central heating control thermostat situated upstairs. Though manual override /interventions were possible, these were only temporary and so frequent frequent trips upstairs were needed to sufficiently keep the downstairs warm.This was proved to be a real irritation and inconvenience. Having log burners is not a suitable alternative to adequate background heating. I guess that I could have tried to contact the owner about this but, frankly, with this should not be necessary. 2. Parking our not-so-large car in the entrance to the house proved very tricky as the hedge is overgrown on one side needs to be cut back.

About the location

WINTERBORNE WHITECHURCH

Blandford Forum 5 miles; Dorchester 12 miles.

Winterborne Whitechurch, 5 miles from Blandford Forum, is one of eight Dorset villages in this area, which take their name from the seasonal stream which runs from springs high up on the chalk downs, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, offering glorious walks and superb views. Visitors can enjoy the village pub's cask ales whilst absorbing the picturesque village atmosphere. Within 3 miles is the charming village of Milton Abbas, with its neat, whitewashed thatched cottages, and splendid Benedictine Abbey, a sight not to be missed. Take a visit to the bustling market town of Dorchester, only 12 miles away, home of renowned Thomas Hardy; his birthplace at Bockhampton is also well worth exploring! Within an easy drive lies the stunning Jurassic Coast, with glorious sandy beaches at Weymouth and Swanage, dramatic Chesil Beach and Lulworth Cove and wonderful cliff top walks along the South West Coastal Path. This is a perfect location for relaxing and enjoying the delights Dorset has to offer.
