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.

We stayed here for a couple of nights in July and received a very warm welcome from Lynn on our arrival. The site is spacious with lots of room and very well maintained with EHU and water on each pitch. The free wi-fi came in handy too. We were on the pitch nearest to the facilities but it didn't detract at all from our stay. Our dog enjoyed the walk round the designated field and we walked across a couple of fields to the nearest pub which serves good food and is also dog friendly. We found the site peaceful and tranquil and will be returning.

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.

Lovely welcoming site

Cherry Cottage CL
The directions given were spot on so much information before hand makes it a stress free arrival, lovely small site loads of space either side of your pitch, own tap which is great. Owners were so welcoming and like to have a chat so that’s nice you can see they love what they do and should be very proud of what they’ve achieved. The pub is only a short distance away and very good food. Very central site to visit the local areas. We have already booked for next year and can’t wait to return.

What a lovely small peaceful and beautifully kept site, lovely welcome from the owners upon arrival, key entry to the site so feel very safe, lovely level pitches and plenty of room between each pitch, Free wi-fi, and water tap for each pitch, good length dog walk around the large field. Plenty of places to visit within short distance, highly recommend this site, can’t wait to return later in the year.
