The Merlin is the perfect country retreat, wonderful for walking and fishing, nestled on a quiet country lane, overlooking rolling English countryside. Due to its fabulous location and little light pollution, this cottage is ideal for star gazing.

Visitors to this rural holiday cottage in Dorset can enjoy a pleasant stroll into the nearby market town of Sturminster Newton with pubs and shops. The fabulous surrounding countryside inspired two famous poets. The town being the home of William Barnes, and the area of the Blackmoor Vale being the setting for Thomas Hardye’s Tess of the D’urbervilles.

Though located in the heart of rural Dorset, this country cottage lies within easy reach of a wealth of attractions including Sherborne Castle, Gold Hill at Shaftesbury (Hovis advert), National Trust Stourhead House & Gardens, Longleat Safari Park, Fleet Air Museum and a day out at the seaside along the World famous Jurassic coast. Golf, fishing, horse-riding and watersports are all within easy reach. There is a lovely local pub at Hinton St Mary, which is a mile and half walk through the countryside.
