A great, welcoming & comfortable little cottage. just what we wanted for our short break.
We wanted a base for the nearby steam fair which was really fantastic. but the added bonus was the lovely walks right on the doorstep, which we found from the maps left for our use in the cottage. A warm welcome from the owners, lots of nice touches such as wine, milk & fresh eggs on arrival. We would definitely recommend the cottage for a short break.

Monks Cottage - is a 17th Century Grade 2 listed detached cottage with period features including inglenook fireplace & exposed beams. Situated in the heart of a green belt that is Cranborne Chase AONB (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty). A diverse landscape offering areas of rolling chalk grassland, ancient woodlands, downland hillsides and chalk river valleys each with a distinct and recognisable character. Ideally located for cycling, rambling, picnicing & outdoor pursuits. Nearby places of interest include Stonehenge, Salisbury, Shaftesbury, Blandford Forum, The New Forest, Wimborne Minster, Bournemouth, Poole, Swanage, Various National Trust Properties & Gardens, Durdle Door, Lulworth Cove, Shell bay Beach & Studland Beach.

East Woodyates has history going back to the Stone age where Tumuli can be found and there is evidence of a Roman road. More recently East Woodyates was used as a staging post to inform the victory at Nelsons battle of Trafalgar, known as the Trafalgar way.

Other Activities: Indoor Go Karting, Laser Combat, Shooting,

Golf: Rushmore is an 18-hole golf course set high on the chalk of the Cranborne Chase, with the unusual distinction of having 9 holes in Dorset & 9 in Wiltshire. Set in the heart of the historic Rushmore Park, the course is a haven of peace, with only the abundant wildlife & spectacular views to distract from your game.

The club prides itself on its warm & friendly welcome to members & visitors alike. They have an active membership, with many golf & social events taking place throughout the year. They welcome societies & visitors seven days a week, offering excellent golf, good home-cooked food & a fine selection of beer & wine.

Rushmore is easily reached by car from the local towns of Shaftesbury & Blandford as well as Salisbury & the South Coast resorts of Bournemouth & Poole & the course is clearly signed from the A30, A354 & B3081.
