About The Stables Loft

The Stables Loft is a charming first floor holiday apartment, attached to the owners house (accessed by its own private outside wooden staircase) with a huge balcony offering lovely views over the surrounding countryside. Perfect for couples or a single person, this stylish apartment sits above what was once the stables, alongside the owner's home in Dorset. Whether you are looking for a relaxing break, walking holiday or want a base from which to explore Dorset and its many attractions, The Stables Loft is an ideal romantic holiday retreat. Short beaks with a flexible changeover day are available all year round (please note that three night minimum breaks are offered).

Positioned on the edge of the attractive rural farming village of Hazelbury Bryan, countryside abounds with plenty of tracks and paths for walkers to explore. Nestling in the Blackmore Vale, the apartment is within easy reach and close to Sturminster Newton, Sherborne, Dorchester, Blandford Forum and Shaftesbury, along with Swanage and Lulworth Cove on the stunning Dorset Jurassic coast.

The large balcony is perfect for relaxing in the warmer weather with table and chairs for alfresco dining and a bench where you can sit and watch the sun set with a glass of wine! The owner's dog friendly garden is also accessible to guests and provides a peaceful place to sit and relax.

With plenty of attractions within the area, enjoyable day trips include Longleat House and Safari Park, Cheddar Gorge, Stourhead Gardens, Haynes Motor Museum, Durdle Door, the ancient site of Stonehenge and for shoppers, Clarkes Village to name just a few.

Alternatively, put on your walking boots and explore the local countryside with lovely walks from the front door.

If the Loft is booked look at Old Causeway Bakery Cottage. It's a bit bigger, a little more expensive but quite lovely! Short breaks, minimum 3 nights, are available all year.
