The Strawberry Thief, named after the designer William Morris's most famous print design, is a gorgeous end of terrace retreat for four, deep in the rolling Dorset countryside. Nestled in oodles of outdoor space, this pretty, fudge-coloured cottage is just lovely on the inside too. With a real focus on mid-century design, the decor is thoughtfully chosen, with fabulously iconic pieces throughout from the Eames dining chairs to the antique single bed. There's even a vintage Crossley record player and a selection of vinyl! It's also a great location to explore Dorset and Somerset, being so close to the border, with brilliant walks on your doorstep - perfect for long doggie walks.

The lovely sitting area is swathed in honey-rich polished floorboards with a huge wood burning stove for cooler months. With stylish-yet-comfy seating, beautiful lighting and simple decor, this is an exquisite room for relaxation after a busy day, preferably with a glass of something delicious in hand. There's a television with Freeview plus a DVD player for when you want a movie night or two.


The kitchen-come-breakfast room is a great space with a fab cherry wood dining table with Eames chairs at its heart - ideal for get-togethers. There's a Smeg oven plus all the necessities to cook up a storm in the kitchen, plus a Nespresso machine for coffee-lovers and a Bluetooth speaker for when you want to cook along to some cracking tunes. In addition, there's a separate dining room snugly tucked away in a duck-egg blue room for cosy meals together.


There are three luxurious bedrooms, with the master bedroom offering a king size bed, lovely stained wooden floors, pretty seating (perfect for reading a book) and bags of room. The second bedroom has a double bed with velvet bed frame and is cosier in feel, whilst the third bedroom has a unique antique single bed and reading table - perfect as a day bed or for a little one.


The gorgeous, spacious bathroom has both a lovely vintage-style freestanding bath and a monsoon shower - perfect to help you wake or for a good wallow at the end of a day's exploring (candles optional).

Outside space

The Strawberry Thief comes with bags of outdoor space - perfect for the summer months. There's plenty of seating on the patio and a dining table for those lazy summer al fresco meals.


There is a parking space immediately outside the cottage and an additional car can be parked close by.

In the Area

Being close to the Somerset border and not too far from Wiltshire, there are lots to do on your doorstep. Sherborne Castle and Abbey are close by and absolutely beautiful - the castle dates from 1594 and was built by Sir Walter Raleigh, whilst the gardens were created by Capability Brown in 1753. The abbey was originally a Saxon cathedral and is one of England's most beautiful churches. Longleat Safari Park, Bath, Stonehenge, the Fleet Air Museum, Lyme Regis and Bridport are all within an easy distance.
