No two days are the same across these three beautiful counties; from Wiltshire's dreamy downland and the stone circles of Avebury and Stonehenge, Dorset's coastal beauty and bucolic charms, and the wilds of Exmoor and Quantocks in Somerset. Their wide open spaces and historical sites draws people back again and again.

    Stunning views

    Your staff were incredibly helpful in organising a wheelchair at very short notice as one of our party had hurt their foot. Also where the property was situated was fantastic, the views were stunning. Also the location was easily accessible for us as a group as there were good train/road links.

    loved the location being near our family at Christmas - the cottage was warm and welcoming as always. So nice to be able to bring our dog especially as the cottage is in the beautiful parkland of Montacute House it was a shear pleasure all the way. thank you. It also felt quite personal, with the delivery of the logs from the estate office etc etc - good team at Montacute House.

    On arrival, Zoe (the caretaker) had left a card and cookies - a lovely, thoughtful act, really welcoming. Odcombe Lodge was charming, out-of-the-way, but near to amenities (pubs!) as well as Montacute - which was beautifully lit in coloured light for Christmas. The real fire at the Lodge was really lovely. We had a lovely, relaxing time. Unfortunately, I could not stay for the 3rd night we had booked, as work hours had changed and I had to get back to London. Many thanks to Zoe and the National Trust.

    Peace and quiet in lovely surroundings. Christmas event at the property. Staff in the shop, house and café were very friendly and helpful. Log fire.

    We live close to this lodge. but because we cant travel away due to large animal commitments it's lovely to be able to get away from our house and go and stay in a lovely quiet lodge with beautiful surroundings. It makes us feel we are away. It's perfect.

    This was a surprise 70th birthday present for my dad at his favourite National Trust property. He loved the views of the House on our many walks and visiting regularly, meeting all the friendly volunteers. It was also our six month old twins' first holiday. They enjoyed breakfast in the garden and being walked around the parkland.
