Cottage Holidays in Milborne St. Andrew, Dorset, England

The pretty village of Milborne St. Andrew is found in South Dorset 9 miles from the town of Dorchester.  With a charming country location, a stay here will appeal to those looking to enjoy a relaxing country cottage getaway. Furthermore, the village benefits from good road links from the A354 which passes through Milborne St. Andrew, allowing visitors to easily take to the road to explore the nearby countryside and local attractions plus the delights of the south coast further afield.


What Milborne St. Andrew offers for Cottage Breaks

Milborne St. Andrew has a general store where you can stock up on groceries, newspapers, wines and spirits and other essentials for your cottage holiday. There is also a post office and shop which is open weekdays and Saturday mornings. The local pub is the Royal Oak, a family and dog friendly pub with a comprehensive food menu.

Just down the A354 towards Dorchester is the magnificent 15th century Athelhampton House and its stunning gardens. Not only can you walk around the house and enjoy the tranquillity of its grounds, you can also have Sunday lunch there and even go to the cinema at the Athelhampton Cinema, how’s that for an eventful day out?

Driving south from Milborne, through some lovely countryside and villages you will arrive at the little coastal gem of Lulworth Cove, well worth a visit whilst on a self-catering break in this part of Dorset. Formed some 10,000 years ago, the cove with its surrounding cliffs and hills is very sheltered. On your way to the beach from the car park are some shops and stalls selling souvenirs, fresh fish and even clothes.

Reached from the hill overlooking Lulworth Cove is Durdle Door. The naturally created arch of Durdle Door is due to sea erosion over time. Evidence of fossils is to be found near here at the fossil forest that is open at weekends and at other times when the MOD are not active in the area. Before you leave Lulworth be sure to visit Lulworth Castle and Park. Originally built as a hunting lodge for entertaining royalty, the impressive building has hardly changed over the centuries thanks to some careful restoration.

For a most interesting and unusual day out during your cottage break make a visit to the Dorset Tank Museum at Bovington, a short drive from Milborne St. Andrew. Here you can learn about the history of the tank and see historic exhibits from all over the world. It’s great for the kids, with interactive exhibits, dressing up activities and play areas. Nearby to the tank museum is Monkey World, a rescue and rehabilitation centre for all types of primates from lemurs to chimps and monkeys to orang-utans, sure to be a hit with those who enjoy monkeying around.

For more days out during a self-catering break at Milborne St. Andrew, there are historic sites and more museums as well as excellent shopping in Dorchester. What’s more, Blanford and the seaside resorts of Weymouth and Swanage are within an hours’ drive. Whether visiting for a family holiday, a romantic getaway or a holiday with friends, we hope you find perfect accommodation for you on Country Cottages Online.

Book a Milborne St. Andrew cottage and look forward to discovering some of the best of Dorset on holiday.
