Flint is one of the two small self catering cottages at Launceston Farm near Blandford in Dorset. This detached two storey cottage in a converted stable has its own private courtyard with outdoor bateau bath for soaks under the stars. Popular with dog owners, you step out of the front door onto farm tracks which run for miles across the chalk downlands of the surrounding Cranborne Chase, Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
If it’s not walking weather, while away the afternoon in the 12m indoor swimming pool and sauna (available to guests 7:30am-7:00pm). Curl up on the sofa in front of the wood burner with a DVD or a good read. If you don’t feel like cooking, order one of Sarah’s two course farmhouse suppers delivered hot to your door or take a 5 minute stroll down to the award winning village pub.
