I am primarily offering a spacious room with a very comfortable, single bed for one person. However, additional beds for up to four people (within the same group) can be arranged - see details below. I live in the pretty village of Milborne St Andrew, which is an ideal central location for enjoying the range of Dorset's beautiful beaches, and also for exploring the Jurassic coast and many places of interest inland.

The space
The guest room has a very comfortable bed, and free WiFi and a digital radio are provided. Guests are welcome to use the kitchen to make tea and coffee, and for simple food preparations, including the use of the microwave.

ADDITIONAL BED: While the room is ideal for single guests, an additional single (2'6" width) fold-up bed is available if required. It is a very good quality fold-up bed with a 5" inch thick, comfortable mattress.

AND FOR A THIRD AND FOURTH PERSON (within the same group only): Recognising that it can sometimes be difficult to find reasonably priced accommodation in this area and recalling the inspiration of this platform which is indicated by its name, there is now an option (from June 2022) for a third and even fourth guest to sleep on single AIRBEDS in the living room. This has already had a very favourable response from guests and I have discovered for myself that it is a surprisingly comfortable arrangement. (The airbed stays in the main guest room during the day when it isn't being used.)

Where you’ll be

Milborne Saint Andrew, England, United Kingdom

Milborne St Andrew has a village store, a post office, and a very welcoming family-run pub "The Royal Oak," which serves quality, traditional pub food. The village Church dates from the 11th Century. The village appeared as "Millpond St Jude" in Thomas Hardy's "Far from the Madding Crowd."

The village lies on the A354, directly between Dorchester and Blandford Forum, which are 8 miles (15 minutes) away. It is an excellent central base for access to the beautiful beaches along the Dorset coast, including Bournemouth, Sandbanks in Poole, Swanage, Durdle Door, Weymouth and West Bay, which can be reached within 25-40 minutes. Monkey World and the tank museum at Bovington are 15 minutes away.
