About this Cottage

Bailey Ridge Farm Cottages, located in the beautiful Dorset countryside of the Blackmore Vale, are on the owners’ family run farm with a beef suckler herd, a small flock of sheep and chickens. These three delightful, converted stone barns (refs DBBM, DBBL and DBBK) offer good quality accommodation and a comfortable place to relax, unwind, enjoy country walking, see plenty of wildlife and are ideal for exploring Dorset and Somerset. They can be booked together to accommodate up to 18 guests. Golf and fishing are within easy driving, and yachting, canoeing and sailing are available at Halstock Reservoir. Wriggle View (ref DBBM) offers ‘upside down’ accommodation, whilst Jolliffe (ref DBBK) and Cowleaze (ref DBBL) are of the conventional design. The owners welcome guests to enjoy the farm activities and animals which the children will love. Visit the historic market town of Sherborne, 5 miles, with its castle, abbey and shops, or the chalk ‘Cerne Abbas Giant’. Venture further afield into the thriving county town of Dorchester, 10 miles, with Dinosaur Museum, Terracotta Warriors, Teddy Bear Museum and the world renowned Tutankhamun exhibition. Spend family time visiting Bovington Tank Museum with its fascinating collection of tanks, Monkey World, Weymouth with its picturesque 17th century harbour, Blue Flag beach and sealife centre, and then wander along the Chesil Beach and famous World Heritage Jurassic Coast, with its stunning scenery, taking in Abbotsbury Swannery and Tropical Gardens. In south Somerset are many historic houses such as Montacute House, Tintinhull and Forde Abbey. Family attractions include Yeovilton Fleet Air Arm Museum with Concorde, the Haynes Motor Museum with wonderful display of classic and vintage cars, and slightly further afield, Longleat House and Safari Park. Somerset offers many exciting venues including Glastonbury Tor, Clarks Factory Village, Cheddar Gorge and Caves and the Georgian city of Bath to name a few. Shop and pub 1½ miles.
