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 our normal cancellation rules will not apply throughout 2022. 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.  


Decorated in fresh, country style throughout, the ground floor accommodation includes a cosy sitting room with  logburner, TV , Bose music system and WIFI.  A well stocked bookshelf includes walking and cycling books, maps, tourist information and games.  A second living area with antique pine settle and wood floor leads to the modern bathroom, with bath and shower over, and kitchen.  

The kitchen is a delight - in cottage style, newly installed in 2019 with up to the minute appliances.  French windows lead onto the sunny, enclosed cottage garden. With its generous lawn, flower beds, and several seating areas, this is a perfect place to relax and take time out from your sightseeing schedule.  Take care with young ones here - the village “Chalk Stream” passes through the end of the garden -the gentle babble is a delight, and older children will enjoy a shallow wellie- booted wade, but babies and toddlers will need to be watched!

Two light and airy bedrooms are on the first floor - the master, with its antique brass and cast iron double bed and a twin bedded double aspect room, stocked with children’s books and toys. 

There is full central heating, our modern boiler system ensures a hot shower, and our woodstore outside the kitchen is kept stocked for your use.
