Moles Cottage is a superb detached period property in the picturesque Dorset village of Farnham, on the edge of the Cranborne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Created in partnership with the neighbouring Museum Inn – a highly renowned pub and restaurant – guests can make the most of the fabulous menu and wine list by ordering meals at the cottage or enjoying the dining-room and friendly atmosphere of the pub. This is an exceptional thatched cottage for family holidays and special occasions.

There is a large welcoming living-area with great big sofas and a huge open fireplace, a grand dining-table and luxury kitchen with a top of the range Rangemaster cooker. French windows lead to the sheltered patio behind the house and there are steps up to the enclosed garden (please take care with children as there is a drop from the garden to the patio).
