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.

My experience of Cherry Cottage is a little different to other folk. A lovely maintained site for sure although a lot of rules and regulations are in place which spoilt it for me. Facilities weren't open and in a campervan I do struggle, and elsewhere CLs and club sites had opened their facilities. I should have checked. I was also looking forward to the peace and tranquility and while I appreciate I visited slap bang in high summer and harvest time, every evening I was there, I experienced a lot of noisy machinery. No peace at all, so if it is peace you're after then visit outside of harvesting! Entrance is very narrow and bigger units will struggle. Plus the hedge at the front of the cottage obstructs the road view when pulling out. I had a lovely pitch with nice field view., pitches are spaced well although Pitch 1 seemed a little close to bins and elsan. Bear this in mind if you want complete peace. I didn't use the dog walk, which was enclosed, but I noticed that dogs should be kept on lead in there, why? It is enclosed? Of course this is just my opinion and what suits me may not suit others, it is a dear little site and I'm sure my review won't deter others and nor should it, it is a good site, just not the right one for me.
