If you’ve not yet secured your very own cosy cottage, then why not go and stay in one instead? There are loads of gorgeous country cottages and unusual properties available to rent for holidays and they make the perfect escape from your usual daily routine. Whether you’re looking to go away for a cosy weekend retreat, or a longer holiday stay, we’ve found some lovely places to stay.
In the first of our new Cosy Retreats series, we’re looking at the highlights of the nicely named, Squirrel Cottage in Dorset.
Located on the Dorset Somerset Border, this Grade II listed thatched holiday cottage is in the village of Bradford Abbas, near Sherborne.
The cottage has everything you’d expect from a cosy cottage in the country – a beamed living room with wood-burning stove, a well-equipped beamed country cottage kitchen, pretty wooden beamed bedroom and a lovely enclosed garden to enjoy outside.
Squirrel cottage sleeps four – one double room, one twin room – and has plenty of character and charm. Short breaks, and longer stays, are available throughout the year.
