About Little Glebe, Folke

Little Glebe is a well-equipped and comfortable holiday flat for two people.  The property, which has been awarded a 4 star Quality in Tourism rating by Visit Britain, enjoys wonderful, panoramic views across the countryside to the Dorset hills beyond.

The accommodation, which is entirely self-contained, forms part of a former country rectory situated in the heart of Thomas Hardy’s beautiful Blackmore Vale.  The front door opens into a hall with tiled flooring providing a good area for coats and boots. A small flight of stairs leads to the apartment which enjoys wonderful views across the Blackmore Vale to the Dorset hills beyond. 

The bedroom can be configured either as a large double or with twin beds and has a shower room which is en suite and fitted with a heated towel rail. 

The sitting room has a wonderful outlook and is well equipped with comfortable seating, freeview television, video and DVD/CD player. The kitchen is fitted with a combination oven/microwave with 4 ring hob and fridge-freezer; washing machine available. Free broadband wireless internet access is available. In short, everything is provided to ensure a relaxing week in Dorset. 

You will be situated in a peaceful location in the tiny hamlet of Folke with its charming sixteenth-century church and abandoned medieval settlement which is just three miles from the ancient abbey town of Sherborne and within easy driving distance of the Dorset coast (now a World Heritage Site). 

Nearby Sherborne is one of the most beautiful towns in England. With its abundance of medieval buildings, superb abbey, world famous schools, picturesque almshouse and two castles, Sherborne has much to offer visitors. The railway station has regular services to Salisbury and Exeter which are both well worth visiting. 

There are some magnificent historic houses, with a good selection of National Trust properties, all within a 25 mile radius of Folke. The Fleet Air Arm museum is also nearby at  Yeovilton. 

Walking in Dorset is wonderful. You could spend an entire week at Folke without walking the same footpath twice! The owners are happy to recommend walks. Alternatively there are tennis courts in the village and several excellent golf courses in the area including a nine-hole course and driving range a few hundred yards away. There is also an equestrian centre nearby.

We regret that we are unable to accommodate pets. Glebe House has a no smoking policy.

Guests have their own entrance and enjoy unrestricted access to their accommodation, the parking area and a private garden.
