    “What a wonderful location.”

    The animals were a constant source of entertainment for the toddlers. The swimming pool is fantastic although could do with a rail next to the steps. The games room a brilliant place if raining. Definitely hope to return.

The property

Churn House is positioned in the village of Dewlish, enveloped by the Dorset hills and peaceful countryside, an 18th century barn conversion making the most of an arable farmland setting.

Bursting with character inside, with exposed beams elevating the rooms, a coal-effect fire in the sitting room and traditional furnishings, you won't want to miss an opportunity for a quiet break with the whole family.

It is the ideal property for getting large groups together for a special occasion, wallowing in a calm environment, where ducks and hens roam on-site and nature greets you right on the doorstep.

Spend your down time wrapped around the fire in the sitting room with your nose in a book or gathered around the TV with the rest of the group.

Move through to the kitchen to prepare a family meal, with everything you could possible need in terms of appliances and storage.

There is also a dining table and traditional dresser in one corner of the room, giving the space a farmhouse feel.

Each of the bedrooms have beamed ceilings continuing the character, two of which even have zip/link beds so you have the option of twins or double.

Lastly, the bathroom and shower room can accommodate everyone, with handy fixtures and fittings.

Venture outside in the summer and enjoy your very own patio while the kids run around in the shared garden space.

Choose to swim in the on-site pool or have a round of table tennis in the games room.

Close by is the local inn, providing a friendly atmosphere, a range of beer on draft from the local area and a tasty menu.

There are also several more pubs in the area and the nearby market town of Dorchester offers shops and many different eateries.

Enjoy the delights of Tolpubble, notable for Tolpuddle Martyrs, National Trust's Cloud Hills and Athelhampton House and Gardens.

Explore the Dorset coast and find many hidden beauty spots beckoning you to the area.

Churn House is the base to choose for that much needed rest.

About the location


Dorchester 7 miles; Blandford Forum 7 miles.

The idyllic small Dorset village of Dewlish nestles in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, west of the Purbeck Hills, beside the chalk streamed Devil’s Brook, a tributary of the quaintly named River Piddle. Surrounded by chalk downland, rich in agriculture and beloved by Thomas Hardy, Dewlish offers visitors a tranquil rural Dorset village holiday base. There are numerous well-marked footpaths extending out across this unspoilt countryside, and after enjoying a scenic stroll you can reward yourself with refreshment at the friendly local pub. A short drive takes you to the county market town of Dorchester, where you are spoilt for choice when it comes to a bit of retail therapy offering an array of interesting outlets from small independent shops to the usual high street retailers, together with a wide selection of different types of eateries, catering for all budgets. Take in excursions to the Dorset Jurassic Coast, picturesque Milton Abbas, or Tolpuddle, the home of the trade union movement, Athelhampton House or Monkey World and the Bovington Tank Museum, all an easy drive.
