Bracken At Ansty

Ansty, Dorchester, Dorset, Countryside

Situated in a beautiful and rural area of North Dorset on a working farm, with extensive views of Bulbarrow and The Blackmore Vale, Bracken is one of three unique, detached eco retreats, constructed to an exceptionally high standard in 2020.

The light and spacious, open-plan accommodation is all on the ground floor with cosy under-floor heating throughout, courtesy of the ground source heat pump. If the weather isn't kind, snuggle up around the wood burning stove. When night draws in, open the bi-folding doors and star-gaze in your very own wood fired hot tub. The kitchen is the perfect place to cook up some locally sourced ingredients whilst admiring the view.

Sleeping up to six guests in three bedrooms (two with king-size beds and a third with twin single beds), each with their own en-suite shower room, Bracken is an ideal choice for a wonderful Dorset break with family or friends. Outside, the terrace and garden enjoy breath-taking, far-reaching rural views, not to mention the decadent hot tub.

With the Wessex Ridgeway on your doorstep, walking opportunities are endless. If you feel inclined, wander into the village of Ansty via a quiet lane and across a bridleway, where you will find a charming farm shop, post office and good local pub. Ansty can be reached in around 15 minutes on foot, otherwise in around 3 minutes by car. Bracken's neighbours, Fern (sleeps six guests) and Bramble (sleeps four guests) are also available to book, subject to availability. All three properties can be booked as a combination in Dorset Eco Retreats, subject to availability.
