About The Shooting lodge, Wrackleford Estate

5 bedroom rural holiday lodge in the Dorset Downs with dry fly fishing on the River Frome


Our private rural lodge is a unique holiday home in Stratton which offers wonderful, relaxed accommodation with a fantastic setting in a small coppice high on the Dorset Downs. Add to this spectacular views south towards the Jurrasic coast along with dry fly fishing on the River Frome and it’s easy to see that this is a very special holiday lodge

The location of this Dorset cottage is ideal with the property being just one mile from the nearest main road making it wonderfully remote and rural yet it is only around two hours drive from London.

Dorset is blessed with a fantastic coastline, with a mixture of traditional bucket and spade beaches, and awe inspiring coastal paths with plunging cliff lines.  Our private rural lodge is only a 25 minute drive away from some lovely beaches.
