Situated close to a quaint village green this beautiful Grade II listed thatched cottage is full of character and offers cosy accommodation for a family looking to explore Dorset’s Jurassic Coast.
This delightful, Grade II listed thatched cottage is one of two character properties tucked away close to East Chaldon village green. Inside, the accommodation has been beautifully updated and modernised to create light, spacious and contemporary living spaces while retaining plenty of original charm through exposed beams, an inglenook fireplace with wood burner and cottage doors. With a games room, Wendy House and large garden with BBQ, this property offers something for all ages and is just 1.5 miles from the South West Coast Path.
A stable door opens into a kitchen/diner, which displays a charming farmhouse style with a Purbeck stone floor, oak worktops, chunky dining table and plenty of natural light. The lounge/diner retains exposed beams, a large inglenook fireplace with original bread oven, flagstone floor and window seats, with the later additions of a wood burner, Smart TV, Bluetooth speaker and cosy sofas. A door opens onto a sunny patio area with plenty of seating for summer BBQs and the large lawn beyond is bordered by fruit trees and roses. While guests of all ages will enjoy a competitive game of table tennis or darts in the thatched games room, little tots can spend happy summer afternoons playing in the delightful Wendy House nearby. There is private parking.
Surrounded by rolling Dorset countryside, this property is just 150 yards from the local pub, Sailor’s Return. The dramatic Jurassic coastline lies just 1.5 miles away, where the South West Coast Path can be joined to reach the iconic geological structures at Durdle Door and the stunning white pebble beach at Lulworth Cove. Nearby Winfrith Newburgh hosts an award-winning village store and Post Office, while a little further afield the riverside town of Wareham (10.5 miles) offers a wider selection of shops and eateries.
