The Old Bank is a comfortable, friendly 18th century house in the centre of the attractive village of Marnhull near Shaftesbury in the heart of Thomas Hardy country. We have ideal family accommodation and welcome children and dogs. The house has a lovely courtyard leading to a pretty and relaxing cottage garden.

Set on a hill overlooking the Blackmore Vale in Dorset, Marnhull is an excellent centre from which to explore the countryside. The coast and the ancient towns of Shaftesbury, Sherborne, and the historic hill forts of Hambledon Hill, Hod Hill and Maiden Castle are nearby.

There are many National Trust properties in this area, including Stourhead, Kingston Lacy and Montecute together with the beaches and wildlife reserves of Studland, Brownsea Island and the Golden Cap Estate.

Walking and cycling holidays are popular and we have facilities to lock up cycles and to dry clothes. If you are looking for accommodation in a village with a pub, our ‘local’ (which Thomas Hardy called 'The Pure Drop Inn' in Tess of the d'Urbervilles) offers good food and is recommended by our guests.

Other heritage and historical attractions include Salisbury Cathedral and the famous monument of Stonehenge, also Bath with its famous Pump Room and Roman Baths. The Jurassic coast of Dorset is a designated world heritage site and abounds with fossils and the skeletal remains of dinosaurs. Other areas of the coast offer sandy and safe beaches for relaxation.
