Nestling at the bottom of this stunning southern Dorset valley, Shedbush Farmhouse forms part of a group of farm buildings dating from the seventeenth century. Surrounding the thatched farmhouse is a cider house, stable, granary, milking shed, cow shed and barn. A sense of the historical significance of this once working farm is unmistakable as you explore the cottage and the adjacent land. Restored to a superb standard, the farmhouse sits sturdily in half an acre of land, including a rolling front lawn and picnic area with views up towards the Golden Cap, a wooded area to the rear of the house and an orchard opposite. There are several way-marked paths leading through the estate and miles of beautiful coastal and cliff walks.

Dorset is Thomas Hardy country - an appealing mixture of rolling heath land, secluded valleys, picturesque villages, great houses and estates, and a coastline awash with natural beauty. The spectacular Jurassic Coast is just one of the many wonders Dorset has to offer and has shaped the county?s history - from the rugged Isle of Purbeck and the sweeping Chesil Beach to the quaint charm of Lyme Regis and Brownsea Island in Poole Harbour. National Trust properties in Dorset include Corfe Castle, Kingston Lacy and Clouds Hill once the cottage retreat of T E Lawrence (Lawrence of Arabia), while other attractions include the seaside resort of Bournemouth and the county town of Dorchester.
