High Trees Bed and Breakfast - Cattistock

A stylish detached property, offering luxurious en-suite bed and breakfast accommodation in Cattistock, near Dorchester, Dorset.

High Trees Bed and breakfast provides luxurious guest accommodation in beautiful rural Dorset, in the village of Cattistock, which is picturesque, quiet and unspoilt yet with easy access to the A35, A37 & A354 and a rail link via Maiden Newton.

High Trees, in an elevated position and standing well back from the village road, is located on the western edge of Cattistock, overlooking the surrounding countryside, with ample off-road parking. There is a sunny south-west facing terrace to sit out and relax.

Cattistock is well served with a shop/post office, the Fox and Hounds, award winning traditional village pub, offering imaginative locally sourced food and the spectacular parish church of St. Peter & St. Paul, the tower of which is stunning and visible for miles around.

The nearby village of Maiden Newton, just over 1 mile away, offers a railway station, medical centre, garage, village shop/post office, newsagents/café, a hardware store, restaurant, fish and chip shop and the Chalk and Cheese pub.

The very pretty village of Evershot, lies a little further west, and has a shop/post office, a bakery, the Acorn Inn, offering excellent food and the Summer Lodge Country House Hotel, Restaurant and Spa for that special occasion. The historic town of Beaminster is 8 miles away with Dorchester and Bridport both 9 miles away. Sherborne and Yeovil are a little further away.

Sydling St. Nicolas is a very pretty village, 4 miles away, and the Greyhound Inn there serves good food.


Cattistock is a happy mixture of brick and slate and thatched stone cottages, with more modern buildings away from the centre. There is a well-equipped playing field next to the substantial village hall. The earth works on Castle Hill, overlooking the village defy dating, but King Alfred´s grandson, Athelstan, gave land thereabouts to the monks in return for their prayers.

Cattistock is also home to the Cattistock Hunt.

The village parish church, with 15th century north and south transepts, was virtually rebuilt in 1857 by Sir Gilbert Scott and remains one of the finest 19th century churches in Dorset.

Cattistock is ideally situated for an overnight stop, being directly on the 290 mile Macmillan Way walk from Boston to Abbotsbury. Also the Wessex Ridgeway (South) passes by on the way to Lyme Regis.
