Flint Luxury Pet Friendly Self-Catering Cottage with indoor pool, England

Flint Luxury Pet Friendly Self-Catering Cottage with indoor pool Family friendly Luxury Pet/Dog Friendly Holiday Cottage in Blandford Forum, Dorset, England


Stylish, romantic bolthole sleeping 2 (with 1 infant) in rural Dorset with indoor swimming pool & sauna. Enjoy outdoor soaks in the bateau bath. Order a rustic farmhouse supper or walk to the village pub. Dog friendly. Beautiful country walks.

Welcome to Flint, our self-catering cottage for two.  A secluded and romantic country retreat for grown-ups wanting to escape from the daily grind to the peace and utter tranquillity of the Dorset countryside.  An added luxury for 2016 is the indoor biomass heated 12m swimming pool with sauna which is open to guests between 7:30am-7pm.

In a stylishly converted stable building, Flint is part of the old Victorian farm courtyard with views that stretch out over the surrounding farmland and Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.  Come in to the fully equipped kitchen.  There's a larder cupboard with all the basics including eggs from the orchard chickens, fresh bread and home-made cake and preserves.  If you don't feel like cooking, you can order a DIY farmhouse breakfast pack from Sarah (£5 per person) or a two course home-cooked supper (£14 per person) delivered to your door. Many of the ingredients are sourced from the organic farm itself.  

A snug sitting room with cosy sofa, 32" smart TV and wood-burner is the perfect place to curl up after a long walk.  From the sitting room, you have access to your own private walled courtyard where you can enjoy an outdoor soak in the bateau bath by candlelight.  The inside-outside terrace has an outdoor wood burner so you can relax outside all your round.  We provide rugs and plenty of candles!  From the first floor bedroom and ensuite shower room, guests enjoy views over the ornamental walled gardens.  Cows and sheep graze the paddocks outside your window. The super-king hypnos bed is also available as a twin.

Children and pets

You are more than welcome to bring your dog.  We charge an additional £25 to cover cleaning costs.  If you would like to bring your babe, you are very welcome.  We can provide a travel cot, high chair and stair gate but please check these are available before you arrive.

Explore the area

There is plenty to do from your door-step so leave the car behind and explore the stunning countryside by foot or by bike.  Sarah has put together some handy circular walking routes, all with maps and easy to follow notes all of which take in a local pub.   We are within easy reach of the market towns of Shaftesbury, Salisbury, Sherborne and Wimborne if delis and boutiques are calling.  Poole Harbour - part of the World Heritage Jurassic Coast and the start of the South West Coast Path is only half and hour from the farm.  Cultural delights include National Trust properties at Stourhead Gardens and Kingston Lacy estate as well as Salisbury Cathedral and Stonehenge. 

Eating out

The award-winning local pub - the Langton Arms - is a five minute walk into the village.  We recommend booking in advance for a Friday or Saturday night.   Torches are provided for the walk home.  Dorset is foodie heaven.  From country pubs, delis and farm shops, to top-end restaurants and cafes we are always happy to recommend places and have plenty of suggestions for guests in our information pack.

Rates and availability

Seven night breaks (£600) are available from Friday to Friday only.  Three night breaks (£350) are available Monday to Wednesday or Friday to Sunday.  Four night mid week breaks (Monday to Thursday) are £450. There is a £25 surcharge for dogs.
