Make your way up the long, private drive of this elegant country estate to discover a collection of luxurious lodges that blend in perfectly with the Dorset countryside.
It's hard to say whether the first thing to strike you will be the peace and quiet or the views, but Saxon Maybank has a way of making you forget the rest of the world almost before you've grabbed your bags from the car…and then there are the lodges.
Hot tubs bubble, wood burners wait for dusk to fall so they can softly flicker and decked sun terraces bask in the sunshine, and every lodge has been designed to offer contemporary living that complements the unspoilt setting. Bright and spacious, the lodges include thoughtful finishing touches throughout that make them homes from home that go the extra mile.
Once upon a time the estate was a traditional working farm, so it's only right that the lodges have been created using natural and reclaimed materials in a nod to the site's roots.
Now, the development may be secluded but it's by no means remote, and the medieval market town of Sherborne nearby has friendly pubs that have greeted visitors for centuries and more than its share of beautiful buildings. If you fancy sticking to the paths less trodden then just step outside your lodge and take a look - wooded hillsides beckon, and they conceal the kind of little villages you'll never have heard of but always be glad you discovered.
