Mabel's Cottage

Welcome to our lovely Mabel's Cottage, which has nestled quietly in the chocolate box Dorset village of Sydling St Nicholas for over 200 years. Oozing country cottage charm but without sacrificing modern convenience, this delightful and immaculate cottage and its gorgeous cottage garden are sure to enchant. It is available for short and long breaks for up to 4 people, all year round.

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.


Thatched cottages, quiet lanes, walks along the “chalk stream”, an ancient church and a welcoming pub serving excellent food and ales, all beckon you to the picturesque Dorset village of Sydling St Nicholas, a perfect base for exploring this beautiful part of West Dorset.
