Longhouse Lodge

Set in the rural East Dorset hamlet of Mannington is this unique, single-storey timber lodge, imaginatively renovated from a former barn. It's found in the grounds of the owners small holding ' Grade ll listed Dorset Long House'. The lodge is full of charm and character featuring attractive wood-panelling throughout and a cosy woodburning stove in the sitting area, a snug place to toast your toes after a day exploring this lovely area. The small, fitted kitchen area is well-equipped to satisfy your self-catering adventure, and the wood-panelled bedroom is next to a superb Jacuzzi bath, where you can soak your aches away as you lie in the warm bubbles. Outside, you have a private south-facing patio area overlooking the nearby paddocks, and at night take out a glass of your favourite tipple and indulge in a bit of stargazing in the dark sky with no hint of street lighting. Locally, you can walk or cycle across the nearby Holt Heath Nature Reserve or enjoy a trip to Moors Valley Country Park, and there's two lovely pubs within walking distance. Take a trip to the nearby market town and ancient Minster of Wimborne. Alternatively, explore the New Forest National Park, the lovely sandy beaches and attractions of the friendly seaside resort of Bournemouth, Poole Harbour or Salisbury's splendid cathedral - all easily accessible from this lovely lodge. A delightful and romantic rural Dorset holiday lodge, a perfect escape to the country at any time of the year.

All ground floor. Open-plan studio accommodation with one king-size double bed, kitchen, dining area and sitting area with woodburning stove. Bathroom with Jacuzzi bath, shower over, basin and WC.
