About the owners


David and Jan Kirkpatrick

The cottage has been a dream come true. We have remodeled and furnished the cottage to be our UK home. Our whole family just loves our time in Cerne Abbas. It is with great joy that we share it with family, friends and guest.

This poem captures our attraction to village life which certainly comes true with every visit to Cerne Abbas:

Cerne Abbas
Our Village

Lodged deep in most of us is a need for roots and permanence,
and the village symbolizes a place from which
strength and reassurance may be drawn,
where the past is always present,
neighborliness is a way of life and
where no man needs to be a stranger
