Sawmill Cottage is near to Vine Cottage (also a holiday cottage) in the grounds of The Old Sawmills which is a large beautiful detached family house.

If you like wine, then just a few minutes drive away is Furleigh Estates Vineyards with its International Award Winning sparkling wines. You're welcome to go for a tour & tastings, so do check out their website for details. Netherbury is also the location for the original River Cottage in the TV series with Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, which you will see on one of the many village walks.
For something different if you love walking and Donkeys then combine both at Donkey Walking Adventure which takes walks around surrounding area of Netherbury, they will even arrange a walk to the pub with your very own donkey!, or alternatively you can walk to the coast following the river walks.
