About this property

With one double bedroom and a bathroom, it is ideal for a couple as the cottage also contains a small fitted kitchen and a sitting room with a dining area. To the outside of the cottage is shared use of 3/4 acre of lawned garden with a large patio area, garden furniture and a BBQ. Located near to the border of Dorset and Somerset, Frodos is a lovely cottage for a couple wishing to explore this part of the country.

Henstridge lies in the extreme south of Somerset and it's parish is separated from Dorset by Landshire Lane. Its name comes from the Olde English word ‘henst’, meaning ‘horses’ and translates as: "the ridge where stallions are kept".  The ridge is the narrow strip of Jurassic limestone that runs through Henstridge and the nearby villages of Yenston and Whitechurch. Henstridge has an attractive church, which was consecrated in 1332. Unusually it has four altars. The porch was added in the 14th Century and the north aisle was built in the 15th Century. Nearby, you can explore a number of properties in the care of the National Trust, such as Stourhead House and Gardens and the historic town of Shaftesbury. Britain’s most famous stone circle, Stone Henge, is only a short drive away and the Dorset coast offers the best of coastline and countryside.
