Activities/Attractions: Winterborne Zelston is a village in north Dorset, England situated in a winterbourne valley on the A31 road eight miles south of Blandford Forum and ten miles north west of Poole. The first name of "Winterborne" comes from the River Winterborne, which flows from west to east through the village. The river only flows over ground during the winter, hence the name. To the west is Winterborne Tomson and to the northeast is Almer. The river flows through both these villages as well.

"We had an amazing time at Appletree Cottage. The bedrooms were wonderful, clean and comfy, the piece de resistance was the breakfast, 10 out of 10 - and from a Chef! Will be recommending Jane and Angelo to all our friends - their hospitality was second to none."
