The Escape

This beautiful 18th century property benefits from the perfect blend of period features, luxury contemporary furnishings and must have mod-cons. Push open the thick wooden door and you will immediately want to explore every inch - from the glass and oak orangery filled with light, to the serene and stylish bedrooms. There is a secret bunk room upstairs, ingeniously hidden away and a luxurious bubble bath beckons in two of the bathrooms.

 

Outside, the views are breathtaking. The small stream with footbridge leading to a pillared grotto and the decking with outdoor sofas are all an invitation to pause, exhale and relax. For energetic little ones, there is a dedicated playroom, an orchard to run around or Pétanque in the garden.

The village itself is exquisite - a handful of beautiful houses and a private chapel. A friendly chicken or two pecking at the ground, fluffy sheep in the fields and if lucky, you may catch a glimpse of the resident Kingfisher. This rural escape has those exceptional touches that create unforgettable memories.

The Millstream can be taken in conjunction with The Pavilion [ with THE SAUNA] to accommodate 14 guests.

Sherborne Town [5 minutes drive] 

Discover Sherborne, in northwest Dorset, a beautiful, small market town which combines history, culture and a host of events and activities. Whether you are interested in walking in rolling countryside, enjoying a wide variety of pubs and restaurants or finding out about the Abbey and the two castles, Sherborne will provide you with fantastic memories and experiences.

The ancient market town of Sherborne was constituted as a cathedral city around AD 705. When visiting Dorset, Sherborne is an ideal place to stay. The writer Sir Simon Jenkins called Sherborne “the prettiest small town in Dorset”.

Sherborne – the perfect small English market town has a total population of about 10,000, having doubled its population during the last 40 years. It lies on the northern slopes of the beautiful Yeo Valley surrounded by wooded hillsides and green pastures.  Dominated by its golden-coloured Abbey Church  the town has a number of buildings of architectural note including the 16th century Sherborne Castle and 18th century school. Within the town the narrow streets are lined with old grey stone buildings interspersed with early timber-framed, gabled-ended houses and local Ham stone structures.

This bustling little town and the surrounding area offers visitors some attractive sights, a pleasing variety of shops and a choice mix of coffee shops, tea rooms, pubs and restaurants. On the surface, Sherborne might appear a quiet town but there is more going on than might be imagined: indeed, the town has innumerable societies and clubs pursuing many interests. Visitors can enjoy a wide variety of entertainments from the local amateur dramatic productions to school jazz concerts and classical repertoires, from quiz nights, sporting events and arts lectures, to wine tastings and open gardens. There is definitely something for everyone; you can be as busy or as quiet as you want to be.

 

The Home Escape THE MILLSTREAM Testimonials

Best vacation ever

We had the absolute best vacation at this gorgeous property. Everything was perfect. I have rented many many houses and villas over the years and by far, was the most responsive and considerate of all that I have rented. Arranged for daily cleaning and a chef to come twice. The experience could not have been better and the house is even better than it looks in the pictures. Its a gorgeous, magazine-spread-worthy home. As a Senior Vice President at The New York Times i have travelled the world and was seriously impressed, we cant wait to return!

September 2015 | THE SAND I Portugal

I am not entirely sure I want to share this gem with anyone else

First off this is the first time I have bothered to review a holiday accommodation and secondly I am not entirely sure I want to share this gem with anyone else. But in the spirit in which we were received by the most gracious hosts of THE PLANTATION I feel duty bound to take the time to give credit where it is due.

The property itself is of course stunning. Look at the pictures. It does not disappoint in the flesh and nor is it photographed omitting noisy neighbours or ugly views. Secluded, subtle and an oasis of peaceful calm. Most previous reviews mention the fireflies on the lawn of an evening. I now understand why. Impossible to put into words or indeed film or photograph. What most don’t mention is the incredible calm of early morning there.

Good architectural fore thought meant my family of five ‘lived’ easily in this space. The space works very well. Location wise very convenient for Merida and the week barely gave us time to scratch the surface of all the sites within day trip distance. Utterly genuine honest hosts who are as enthused by the houses as we were. A rare find and a true ‘keeper’.

 

Adrian, England UK - THE PLANTATION

We loved THE Aga

Beautiful cottage and a fantastic holiday that began with a warm welcome.
We loved the little touches like the bread, coffee, etc. on arrival. We'd recommend Stourhead Gardens, the bus tour of Bath (plus shopping), brunch at The Chapel in Bruton and a potter about in Frome.
Unfortunately, not everything is perfect: we fell in love with the Aga, which is going to be expensive!
