Ideally situated for exploring Hardy's Wessex, and boasting wonderful walking from the doorstep, these charming and comfortable cottages are perfect for a relaxing break. The Wheelwrights adjoins the owners' 18th century stone built home and both cottages share a very attractive courtyard setting beside the secluded village green and a mile from Fontmell Magna's shop and pub serving food. Delightful thatched and tiled cottages on Shaftesbury's famous Gold Hill are a mere 3 miles distant whilst Stourhead House and Garden, the Fleet Air Arm Museum at Yeovilton, Haynes Motor Museum, Longleat and Cranbourne Chase are among easily accessible attractions. Golf and riding are nearby.
