Hills and meadows surround this lovely old rectory on the river Frome. It’s a friendly home, and Nessie is a foodie too – you arrive to a home-baked something with tea, and breakfast comes with homemade bread, granola and jams.Your tranquil suite on the first floor is independent from the happy hub of family life and a perfect hideaway for two. Relax in the peace of your cosy sitting room drinking in the hillside views. Wander through sweeping lawns, grand trees, crumbling walls and a productive veg garden. Bring your racquet if you fancy a spot of tennis.You can hike through water meadows or bike straight from the door in glorious countryside and it’s a 20-minute stroll to a good pub (the Fox and Hounds) in Cattistock.
