Gould’s Farmhouse is a 4 bedroom farmhouse with large enclosed garden in the heart of rural Dorset. A beautiful period farmhouse dating back to 1600s with some original features.
It has recently been completely renovated and is furnished as a second home with antiques but retaining the comforts of modern living. It has a large sitting room and separate dining room as well as a small office offering wireless internet access. There is a lovely south facing conservatory.
The house is ideal for those with limited mobility, as it has a proper lift to the upstairs area, (by prior arrangement only).
Outside there is a large garden with plenty of room for the children to play. Also sun loungers and BBQ. There is a good children's playground 100 yards up the road. The house is within easy walking distance of the post office and village stores, providing basic provisions, and a pub.
The pretty village location offers easy access to the world famous Jurassic Coast and is in the centre of Thomas Hardye country - the fictional town of Casterbridge (Dorchester) being 8 miles distant. The stunning coastline at Lulworth Cover and Durdle Door is just 14 miles away. About a 30 minute drive away is Weymouth Bay which boasts long and sandy beaches with traditional beach entertainments such as donkey rides and Punch and Judy. Within 20 minutes you can visit the acclaimed Monkey World and Bovington Tank Museum. For the younger visitors Farmer Palmers is less than 30 minutes away.

We have just retuned from a weeks holiday at this amazing farmhouse. We absolutely loved all the original features and in particular the aga in the kitchen. It was great always knowing that the kitchen was so cosy and warm . I also really enjoyed the benefits of the aga for cooking.
The farmhouse was spotlessly clean and very comfortable throughout. Another bonus to this property is the extensive secure garden - it’s great for children and dogs. We also enjoyed making use of the bbq and outdoor table as well as the very comfortable recliner garden chairs.
Gould’s Farmhouse is in a lovely little village with great walks for dogs from the doorstep. It’s a great location too for getting out and about and exploring the beautiful Dorset countryside and coastline.
The staff in the local pub are very friendly and the food was nice.
I would recommend staying in this lovely farmhouse. Nicola, the owner is most helpful and very welcoming. Arrival and departure is made very easy with the use of a key safe and very comprehensive instructions and directions from Nicola.
We had a very enjoyable stay and we were very happy with our choice of holiday home for our week in Dorset.
Gould's Farmhouse Milborne St Andrew
By The Osbornes on 07-Jan-2019
Three generations of our family enjoyed a wonderful time in this gem of a house set on the edge of a lovely village and surrounded by fields. A large garden and a spacious interior meant that our two small grandchildren didn’t run out of hiding places during our four night stay. A five minute walk takes you to the centre of the village where there is a General store, Post Office and the Royal Oak pub which serves great food, both to eat in or takeaway, and where the staff and locals are all friendly and welcoming. We loved chilling in the evening in front of the open hearth fire with a glass of wine, and being over the New Year period, the Christmas tree, mistletoe and holly decorations were an unexpected but joyful bonus. It goes without saying that we will be visiting again in the future.

Gould’s Farmhouse, Milborne St. Andrew, Dorset
We were a party of five active adults, two couples and a single, all over sixty, who rented this lovely old house for a week in April 2018, luckily including the hottest 4 April days for decades. The house was ideal for us, substantial, spacious, well-equipped and comfortable, and located in a lovely area, with the Dorset coast including Poole and Weymouth, and beautiful and interesting towns like Sherborne within easy driving distance.
The outlook from all the bedrooms was very attractive, two overlooking green fields with sheep and horses grazing. The gardens in Spring were particularly attractive and well-maintained, and made a pleasant place to wander or sit with early-evening drinks. The Londis convenience shop and the Post Office just a three-minute walk away were useful.
The owner, Nicola was attentive and helpful, and after a very pleasant and relaxing week we were quite reluctant to leave, and have no hesitation in recommending the house to others.

Bronwen's stay at Gould's Farmhouse
We spent a wonderful week at Gould’s Farmhouse in September, 2017. 3 couples and 2 dogs, all looking for a relaxing week of long walks, visits to local places of interest and leisurely evenings. The Farmhouse was the most perfect setting and was even better than the photos suggested; a beautiful old house with plenty of room and brimming with character (open fireplaces, stone floors, high ceilings and windows and a stunning enclosed garden with room to sit out and for dogs to chase around). It felt very much like a home as opposed to somewhere we had rented for the week which really added to the feeling of complete relaxation.
Not only was the place itself wonderful (and ticked every box we had) but Nicola herself was incredibly helpful, both in terms of arranging our visit, but also when we get there and had a couple of questions. There was plenty of information and literature about the house and the local area.
The location was perfect for us with great walks, a very nice local pub just around the corner and a shop selling all the basics. There was much more to explore a little further afield, but if you wanted to stay close to base and limit the driving, as we did, you’d have no problems.
Not only would we recommend this place to anyone but we’re already talking about a return visit!
Young's stay at Gould's Farmhouse
By Barry on 22-Apr-2017
We had a wonderful stay in your house at Milbourne St. Andrew for our family Golden Wedding celebration. The children enjoyed playing in the garden, hide and seek, easter egg hunt, plenty of space to run around, and we enjoyed the display of tulips and the bluebell wood. The house was very comfortable and we had great family meals in the dining room when our sons and wives were with us and later in the week in the kitchen with just the grandchildren We had trips out to Weymouth, Lulworth, Swanage and I think the children's favourite was Monkey World. A good location for travelling around.
