Magna Cottage

Magna Cottage is a 300-year-old self catering holiday rental nestling in a secluded valley at the end of a no-through-road on the Cranborne Chase, a mile from Ashmore in Dorset.

This holiday cottage, a detached thatched flint property, is in an ideal location for an outdoor break in Dorset, with plenty of walking opportunities. From the cottage there is direct access to forest walks and mountain bike trails and it is conveniently located for the Wessex Ridgeway walk. It has good gourmet pubs in the area and is a good "get-away-from-it-all" location. This holiday cottage at a glance
