Take time out to relax in this converted former stable, set in a beautiful rural village with a network of popular walking routes nearby and easy access to the stunning Jurassic Coastline.
This romantic retreat lies within the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Sleeping four guests, it’s ideal for couples or friends who love the countryside. Two dogs are also welcome, so you’ll be glad to find country lanes right on your doorstep. The friendly owners, who live next door, have added every creature comfort for a homely ambience. You’re within half a mile of a popular historic pub with food, and 2 miles from the charming town of Beaminster where you’ll find a bakery, butcher’s, and greengrocer’s, along with an array of independent shops.
Enter into the welcoming hallway of this country-style property and take two steps towards the open-plan kitchen, living and dining area. After a day’s hike, freshen up in the downstairs shower room, and step into the living room to relax by the warming wood burner; or enjoy a good book in the TV snug upstairs. The kitchen is well-equipped for family mealtimes, while there’s a private enclosed BBQ seating area outside, and a summertime garden room in the shared owners’ lawned garden. If you can tear yourself away from this floral idyll, gather together for family mealtimes. When night falls, you’ll find a ground-floor double bed area, and a king-size bedroom upstairs.
To the west, there are two further Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty to explore, East Devon (13 miles), and the Blackdown Hills on the Devon and Somerset borders (14 miles). Discover the site of an Iron Age hill fort at Pilsdon Pen (3.5 miles), and wildlife trails in Ham Hill Country Park (15 miles). Visit Bridport’s market town and literary festival (6.5 miles). Walk The Cobb in Lyme Regis (14.5 miles), a popular film location. Walk the South West Coast Path, and ascend Golden Cap (10 miles) for the spectacular coastline views.
