Set in the heart of the Blackmore Vale renowned for its natural beauty Bankside and Lakeside Hut provide an ideal base from which to explore the many attractions in the area. Gillingham has a rich history dating back over 1000 years and has enjoyed mentions in a great deal of literature including the work of Thomas Hardy. Shaftesbury is a small market town in Dorset with a recorded history that goes back to the Anglo Saxon times. You can experience what it was like back in King Alfred’s time whilst walking round the ruins of the abbey or just enjoying the history of the area displayed in the Gold Hill Museum. The town is the home of Gold Hill made famous by the ‘Hovis’ advertisement and has magnificent views over the Blackmore Vale. There is a wide variety of independent shops pubs and restaurants for tourists to enjoy. This is known as the ‘Gateway to the South West’ from which you can tour the area from Stonehenge in the east to Bath and Bristol to the north and Bournemouth and the Jurassic Coast to the south. A visit to the National Trust Stourhead House and Gardens is also recommended. Shop pub and restaurant 1 mile. \n " https://img.chooseacottage.co.uk/Property/902/840/902229.jpg W43465

Very welcoming and easy going hosts. Lots of great walks locally and the fishing was excellent. The location is very quiet and peaceful and the surrounding wildlife is beautiful to watch, especially the kingfishers. Would highly recommend this to anyone we know and we will definitely be returning in the near future, thank you to Lester & Debbie for a lovely holiday.

Nice accommodation although very small no where to dry clothes if wet from rain . Nearest shop by car about 1 mile. This is a farm so sheep keep the grass cut.

I hate saying how good this place is cos it might get so busy I can't book it. Mainly, it's quiet and peaceful, the only noise is the birds singing. Saying that, you have to drive into the local town for shopping but there is an ASDA, a Waitrose and a Liddle, there are also pubs and a chippie but it is a good 5 to 10 minute drive away. The hut is well equiped and it's all good quality fittings and equipment and the beds are comfortable. Yes, it's small but adequate for us two and two small dogs, which are very welcome there. If you're going for the fishing you won't be dissapointed, the first fish I caught was over 10lb, the largest of the week about 15-17 lbs. There are a lot of young fish in there which is testament to how healthy the lake is. We have been there about 4 times now and we will go back. If you're young and you want night life and disco don't bother. Your hosts are very friendly and welcoming and it is a working farm so occasionally the farmer will start his tractor or his saw for a while. We love it here and so do our dogs, they have the freedom to wander where they will, there are sheep but they will soon chase the dogs off. All in all a lovely, peaceful place

We had a great time at lakeside, weather was a little chilly but the hut was clean and comfortable and warm with the radiator on low. Fishing was very good and the owners were very nice and helpful, will be going there again next year

Had an amazing Easter weekend in this larger than expected shepherds hut. The bar-b-que was brand new, could not fault anything. We will definitely be going back.
