Welcome to October House Holiday Cabin

Formerly October House Bed and Breakfast

Perfect for families, romantic couples and anyone who appreciates the Great British Countryside at its best!

October House Holiday Cabin is a well-appointed self-catered holiday let that sleeps four. It was renovated in May 2015 and is set its own private, dog-proof garden within the lovely grounds of October House, home of the Acland family.


'Cabin' rather under-sells the accommodation which has tardis-like qualities and offers ideal holiday accommodation for families or couples looking for rural tranquillity, space to run around and enjoy, beautiful countryside and easy access to things to do and places to see such as the New Forest, the South Coast, Stonehenge, Salisbury and a host of National Trust and family attractions within an easy drive. Not forgetting our animals you are welcome to enjoy!


There is no traffic, no street lights, no noise with plenty of space and lovely wooded walks in all directions. Dogs are warmly welcome.



The cabin sleeps 4 with a double bedroom and a bunk bed room, two loos, a shower, kitchen and lounge with two sofas, a 32" TV/DVD player and an electric 'wood burning' stove. 


The master bedroom features a sumptuous 5' double bed with down pillows and a quality mattress. There are plenty of drawers and hanging cupboards, a vanity unit and an en-suite loo.


The smaller bedroom has 2'6" bunk beds for the kids but is fine for adults too.


There is a second loo and shower room.


The lounge has a stove to keep you warm and cosy on chilly evenings and winter days. The front door opens onto a large dog and child-proof garden.  It is south west-facing which makes it a perfect sun trap perfect for summer barbeques or just sipping sundowners.


The brand new kitchen has all the conveniences including a washer/dryer, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, ceramic hob and fan oven. 


See Accommodation tab for further details.


Damerham is a lovely tranquil village with a superb local pub a 15 minute pleasant walk away.  Set in the rural idyll of the Cranborne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty there are superb walks in all directions straight from the front door.


Pets and children are warmly welcome and will be safe in a large enclosed private sunny garden complete with outdoor furniture and barbecue in the summer. Horses, ponies, chickens, dogs and cats live on our 3-acre plot.  You can stroke, cuddle, or simply watch and enjoy them (and collect the eggs in the morning if you are up early enough!).


Changeovers are from Friday to Friday - full week bookings only in the summer and short breaks/long weekends in the winter. See tariff and availability pages.


We are happy to receive and unpack on-line grocery deliveries booked for after 11am on changeover days.

Not into dogs?

Coco (lab) and Golly (miniature poodle) will guarantee an enthustaistic welcome! If you are not dog-lovers, please let us know and we will keep them out of your way. 

October House and the Holiday Cottage are strictly non-smoking.  Smokers may go into the garden to smoke.
