Before you even enter this cottage, you will be captivated by the elegant charm of its stone and timber facade. Take a walk down the garden to find the stone grotto close to the meandering mill stream, it is the perfect secret haven.

When you are ready to go inside, you will find oak floors, a modern kitchen and luxuries throughout. It is relaxation all the way at this home escape - whether you stretch out on the roof terrace, melt away in the sauna, hunker down in front of the log burner or kick back in one of the luxury double bedrooms. With the flick of a switch the lounge becomes a private cinema.

If complete relaxation is prescribed, we can arrange our private chef to satisfy your culinary desires. Then, of course, there are home spa treatments ... the relaxation need never end.


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 PAVILION Testimonials

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’.

“Great house, great location, great holiday”
We stayed at THE BAY on our 3rd trip to Barbados having stayed at Royal Westmoreland in previous years. We had high expectations given the photos and were not disappointed. As it turns out, the photos don’t do the house full justice. 

This is a unique house which we struggled to fault at all. In total we consisted of 6 adults and 2 kids and not once did we feel that we struggled for space. The house is very open and airy and set in a location which captures fantastic views and a nice breeze throughout the day and night. As the other reviews state you couldn’t get much better in terms of location. Short drive to Holetown one way and Mullins another short drive the other way. At the bottom of the hill is a great beach too.

Wonderful week

What a wonderful week we had in a perfect setting. The cottage was just what we needed for relaxing with our busy schedule of sightseeing around the area. Thank you so much for the gift basket and we hope to be back again sometime soon.

PS: We found some wonderful antiques!!!
