As the name suggests, The Engine Room was the building which housed the village fire engines & has been lovingly converted into a holiday hideaway for two in the historic village of Milton Abbas, Dorset.

The Engine Room is private and self-contained with your own entrance, courtyard garden and drive-way. It features a separate bedroom & a handmade kitchen area.

The Engine Room was updated in Spring 2017. A brand new bathroom was added as well as beautiful new pieces of antique furniture.

Lovely small place in a gorgeous town and area. Sharon was very friendly and let us stay longer than the usual check-out time. Unfortunately, we woke up at around 7am in the morning because of a knocking noise that seemed to have come from the boiler, which is right next to the b…

We had a great weekend break from the city at the Engine Room. Sharon was a great host, warm welcome on arrival and as there was no one arriving the day we left she was very flexible about the check out time. The village of Milton Abbas was beautiful, with a lovely short walk to …
