  • “The cottage does not have wifi, which was a nuisance as I had wanted to use it to find details of places to visit, etc and to receive emails.”

    It was not the ideal house for two ladies in their eighties, mostly because of the rather awkward stairs but otherwise it was great. We particularly enjoyed the garden which was quiet and secluded.

The property

Pippins is a romantic rural cottage located in the village of Holywell surrounded by lush Dorset countryside.

The property has been carefully furnished to enhance the character features of the cottage.

A cosy sitting and dining room for you to sit and relax.

Two cosy bedrooms continue the theme of the cottage upstairs which are accessed via cottage style stairs.

The large pretty garden is the perfect quiet space to sit and relax, boasting views across some of Dorset's magnificent rural landscapes.

The cottage is ideally placed for country walks and bird watching.

Surrounding villages all have an appeal of their own and you can imagine why Thomas Hardy was inspired to write such wonderful literature.

Within a 10 mile drive you can reach the towns of Yeovil, Sherborne or Dorchester, which have many places of historical interest to visit as well as an abundance of shops.

A journey to the Fleet Air Arm Museum at Yeovilton is a great day out for the children.

Street, which is famous for its outlet village selling cut price designer clothes and shoes is a relatively short car journey from the cottage.

Weymouth, with its famous golden sands lies approximately 18 miles from Pippins.

This romantic rural cottage in Holywell is ideally placed for walking and enjoying the fresh air during your holiday.

About the location


Weymouth 7 miles.

A trip to Dorset is not complete without visiting the market town of Dorchester, with its Roman roads, museums and a wide selection of pubs and restaurants. Enjoy a scenic walk around Maiden Castle, the largest hillfort in England, or visit the County Museum which has a room devoted to Thomas Hardy, born just two miles away in Bockhampton. Just seven miles away are the glorious gently shelving beaches and picturesque harbour of Weymouth, and the rugged peninsula of Portland, linked to the mainland by Chesil Beach, part of the breathtaking World Heritage Coastline. In fact, you’ll find yourself so intoxicated by Dorset’s magic spell, you won’t want to return home at the end of your stay!

Note: Pippins is located within close proximity of a railway line so you can occasionally hear passing trains.

The property has cottage style stairs which are steeper than normal.

The parking area to the front is elevated and there are steps down to the front door.
