Town: Henstridge lies in the extreme south of Somerset and it's parish is separated from Dorset by Landshire Lane. Its name comes from the Olde English word 'henst', meaning 'horses' and translates as: "the ridge where stallions are kept". The ridge is the narrow strip of Jurassic limestone that runs through Henstridge and the nearby villages of Yenston and Whitechurch. Henstridge has an attractive church, which was consecrated in 1332. Unusually it has four altars.Â The porch was added in the 14th Century and the north aisle was built in the 15th Century. Nearby, you can explore a number of properties in the care of the National Trust, such as Stourhead House and Gardens and the historic town of Shaftesbury. Britain's most famous stone circle, Stone Henge, is only a short drive away and the Dorset coast offers the best of coastline and countryside.

Found the holiday had everything we were looking for, it was very comfortable, we found it just what we wanted, and very central for the many things that we did while on our break. Would certainly go back again in the future.
Perfect place to relax and get away from it all

Our host was very friendly and happy for us to share her large patio and garden. She was also kind enough to lend us extra cutlery when we had friends over for a barbecue. A very enjoyable holiday in a good location for exploring Somerset, Dorset and Wiltshire. Frodo's is small but had everything we needed. The only downside was the village itself which didn't have a lot to offer.
convenient and comfortable !!

We stayed here with our 2 month old son on our first holiday as a family, we found the facilities at Frodos perfect for our needs and the owners were very helpful and accommodating. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would go back again.

The location of the cottage was ideal for touring four counties: Somerset, Wiltshire, Dorset and Devon. The proprietor was extremely friendly and helpful. We would highly recommend this accommodation.

An excellent centre for seeing Somerset and Dorset

Henstridge makes an excellent centre for visiting several NT houses and gardens and other historical sites in Somerset and Dorset. We also enjoyed some long walks, favoured by the weather. The house is well equipped and comfortable. We especially enjoyed the garden for sitting out. Least convenient was the on-street parking, sometimes having to go some distance to find a space.
