This ancient village is located in Northwest Dorset, five miles northeast of the market town of Bridport. It lies in a steep valley, on the edge of the Dorset Downs. The Mangerton River runs past holiday cottages in Powerstock, on the southern edge of the village. In the centre of Powerstock, on King’s Lane, School Hill and Dugberry Hill, there are rows of historic cottages and the church of St Mary the Virgin. The Three Horseshoes Inn is a cosy pub serving local ales and excellent food. Every summer, one of the region’s best cider festivals is held here. There is another pub, the Marquis of Lorne, in the neigbouring hamlet of Nettlecombe, a short stroll southward on quiet country lanes from your holiday cottage in Powerstock. The food here is particularly good and is prepared with the finest fresh produce from neighbouring farms.
Vicarage Cottage is a gorgeous Grade II listed thatched cottage with a walled garden in lovely Powerstock. Contemporary comfort meets traditional charm in a rural cottage with beams & tiled floors, & an open fire in a traditional fireplace. Stay in the charming former blacksmith’s home in Dorset.
