Town: Set in the valley of the River Cerne and surrounded by glorious, unspoilt countryside is the attractive scattered community of Charminster. Served by a shop and pub, this village is also just one and a half miles from the bustling market town of Dorchester. Dorchester itself is packed with interesting features such as Roman roads, museums and a wide selection of pubs and restaurants. England's largest hillfort, Maiden Castle, provides a scenic walk, whilst there is a County Museum with a room dedicated to locally born author, Thomas Hardy, writer of the recently televised ˜Tess of the D'Urbervilles'. Seven miles away in picturesque Weymouth are glorious gently shelving beaches, though along the coastline visitors can also find the rugged peninsula of Portland and Chesil Beach made famous by writer Ian McEwan.

Comfortable, quiet, home from home

Generally. a lovely comfortable place, quiet location, but accessible for lots of attractions. Owners lived nearby, but didn't come across on arrival to make sure everything was okay; would have been nice for them to introduce themselves. Must have been having a problem with flies as there were many fly papers hanging in living areas, left a feeling of slightly unclean. Also, fly problem made us feel we couldn't open the windows to allow fresh air into the property. Consequently, bedrooms became very hot to the point of causing uncomfortable nights sleep.

I stayed in the property with my brother and found the accomodation ideal for us. A shower in the main bedroom would have been appreciated. The weather was good and we enjoyed exloring Dorset.
