Scheduled bus passes site entrance (Monday - Friday)

The site is situated 7 miles south of Sherborne, a beautiful small market town, which combines history, culture and hosts numerous events throughout the year. Explore the Abbey, one of the two castles or simply relax in a coffee shop after a spot of shopping in Cheap Street.

The county town of Dorchester is 14 miles to the south, where you will find some of the best preserved Roman ruins, moments away from the high street. Visit one of the 8 museums or take a trip to the cinema.

A scheduled bus service passes the site entrance connecting Sherborne and Dorchester, so you can leave your vehicle on site. The bus connects to mainline train stations in both towns so day trips to Weymouth, Exeter, Salisbury or further afield are possible.

There are plenty of lovely village pubs in the locality, the closest being a short walk away via a public footpath. Most local pubs are dog friendly.

The stunning Minterne Gardens are only a short drive away, as is the historic village of Cerne Abbas and its famous giant.

Please check our availability and book online via our website and follow us on Facebook for late availability and to keep up to date.

Perfect

Lynn is a very welcoming host and always available to give advice and help. The site is very quiet and peaceful with beautiful sunset views. Access to the local area is exactly as you would expect for this area. We found bikes were the best option but the bus is a good adventure too. Wifi is reliable and TV reception good. All in all a great place to stay!

Beautiful and Peaceful

Cherry Cottage is a little gem of a site. We arrived to a very warm welcome from Lynn, who was very helpful.. The site is well laid out with plenty of room between pitches. Cycling down the country lanes was a joy and the countryside was beautiful. Cherry Cottage is well worth a visit and I will be returning.

Walking paradise

Found the site easily and the road leading to it was easy to negotiate. Upon arrival we were greeted by Lynn who is very easy going and friendly and has lots of local information if required. The site is well laid out and so peaceful, you will struggle to hear anything other than animal and bird noises....bliss. It is also an “immaculate site”. Full credit to Lynn and Jon, if you could detail how a site should look and feel, then this would be it. We only live about 15-miles away so it was somewhat of a surprise how stunning the scenery is and we never knew!! Couple this with the abundance of footpaths and bridleways that can be reached within minutes of walking from the site and you realise this is a walkers paradise. There are a wide choice of country lanes to be explored by bicycle. We did a route to a fro to Sherborne, very little road traffic made it very enjoyable, again with great views along the way. We unfortunately had only booked 3-nights, a week would have been better...... but we managed to get in three circular walks, taking in a couple of pubs. Ran out of time to walk across the field to the local pub which is 15-minutes away from the site, next time maybe.

Wonderful Dorset, Wonderful Site!

Very detailed instructions received prior to arrival and a very warm welcome from Lynn when we arrived. Lovely spacious site with immaculate facilities. Toilets not open when we visited on 20 April due to Covid restrictions. Bus stops literally outside the site as a "hail and ride" service. We visited Sherborne, Minterne Gardens and Cerne Abbas but the bus goes from Dorchester to Yeovil (not very frequent but amazing for a hamlet like Middlemarsh). Pitches have clearly marked parameters and plenty of room. Good sized dog walk onsite but plenty of footpaths nearby. Footpaths poorly marked though. Hunters Moon pub in Middlemarsh had just reopened and we had a delicious meal of slow cooked belly pork. The staff were cheerful and helpful and there were lots of young people around making the atmosphere very convivial.. All in all a brilliant visit and certainly worth going again.
