Finding Us

To find the cottage, keep the pub (The Bennet Arms) and the Church and Primary School on your left (these are the main landmarks in the village) drive out towards Gutch Common and Shaftesbury (heading south). The sat nav will normally give you the school as the “you have arrived at your destination”, ignore that and drive on for about 100 metres and you will see Semley Lodge on your right set back from the common by about 30 metres.  If you start going uphill you have gone too far.
