The Mouse House

Milton Abbas, Dorset

Cottage Details

The dog-friendly Mouse House at Milton Abbas nestles in the beautiful Dorset countryside, not far from the village of Milborne St Andrew.

This small holiday home is wonderfully compact without feeling cramped, and is spotlessly presented. Up to two well-behaved dogs are welcome.


Underfloor gas heating make this property warm and cosy in any season. The immaculate wooden finish to much of the interior – panelling, furniture and cupboards – put a modern spin on a country feel.

The accommodation is studio-style, with a comfy double bed, armchairs and TV. The shower room comprises shower, basin and WC. Bed linen and towels are included in the rent.

The kitchen has the essential equipment, comprising gas hob, microwave and fridge. 


There is an enclosed courtyard area with seating, where you can fully appreciate the stunning views surrounding the property. Enjoy a coffee here, or a glass of wine at the end of a day of exploring the plentiful walks available with the dogs.
