The countryside surrounding this Dorset cottage offers an abundance of lovely walking and cycling opportunities, with the nearby town of Shaftesbury providing an excellent range of facilities including an array of fascinating shops and good restaurants, as well as the picturesque Gold Hill of Hovis advert fame.
