Treat yourself to an unforgettable rural escape in Dorset

Let us introduce you to Mabel's, our beautiful self-catering holiday cottage. Set in a quiet, picturesque village in the heart of West Dorset - Thomas Hardy's "Wessex", and sleeping four, we offer a memorable stay in superb surroundings.  Open all year for short and long stays. 

We know it can be a difficult decision to book a holiday this year!  Please be reassured that we will not apply our normal cancellation rules at Mabel's Cottage throughout 2021. You can cancel your stay without reason so long as you give us at least 14 days notice  and we will refund the cost of your holiday.  And if Government restrictions are introduced which prevent you from travelling, or us from hosting you, we will refund you in full for this too.
