Property code: DC041

Stunning period property dating from the 1800s, benefitting from an array of period features, comfortable soft furnishings and all the latest modern conveniences.

In the picturesque, countryside hamlet of Coryates, this family-sized haven is a real slice of paradise. Dating back to 1820, this former dairy infuses traditional charm with modern chic. With accommodation for up to eight people, the whole family can revel in its welcoming interiors and enjoy the great access to Dorset’s wonders, as well as shops and pub 2.5 miles away.

Come into the porch and immediately be wooed by the period features on show. An attractive space with original stone walls, grand fireplace with wood burner and plenty of comfortable seating, the lounge is a lovely spot to recharge with a cup of tea. Throw open the patio doors in summer to let the sunshine flood in, and for cosy winter nights switch on the TV for a movie. Venturing further inside you will come to the kitchen and a separate dining room. Take your meals overlooking the garden in the dining room or gather around the kitchen’s breakfast table. Well-equipped with utensils, appliances and with the addition of a bench seat, the spacious kitchen marries form and function. For a good night’s sleep, the first of the property’s bedrooms is on the ground floor: a double (that can be made into a twin) with an en-suite bathroom and dressing room. Upstairs there are three more bedrooms, all with reduced head height in the eaves: two doubles (one with en-suite bathroom and low doorway) and a twin. Also upstairs is the family bathroom. Boasting a large wrap-around south-facing garden with two distinct areas, you can relax on the terrace, fire up the BBQ or sprawl out on the lawn.

For land and water-based activities, Weymouth is only 6.5 miles away. Only 3.5 miles from Chesil, a trip to this iconic beach is a must.

This house is a summer destination. We found it cold. You are supplied a limited number of logs and the log burner is key to making the house warm. There is limited information - none on where to source more logs. The heating in the bedroom never worked even though we reported it and was promised action. The coffee was out of date.

Really lovely cottage with very comfortable beds and a cosy feel with wood burner. But also good central heating so no need to be cold. Kitchen well equipped. Secure garden for dogs and room for parking 3 cars off road. The period we were there it was extremely wet although we still managed to find walks across muddy fields via public rights of wayRead more. Twenty mins drive from the cottage we found Thorncombe Wood local nature reserve which was really good for dogs. All in all a restful peaceful week Hide

This a great property with lots of space a lovely garden and lots of equipment. The plumbing not great for people who like hot showers. The approach roads are not for the for the faint hearted. There is a barbecue not mentioned in the house details so did not use. Not obvious how you disposed of the ash which was left by previous guests. Tea towelsRead more hidden in a cupboard upstairs. Kings Arms well worth a visit for dinner. Hide

This is a gorgeous cottage situated in quite a remote location so you will need a car. There are internal steps throughout the property. This cottage is well furnished especially for families. There is plenty of space in the garden and over looking the fields is amazing. I would highly recommend this for families. We hope to be back.

Perfect house located in a very quiet area which was able to house myself and 7 others. Plenty of space for people inside and also great garden space. House has everything you would need to have a fantastic trip. Also not too far from shops, pubs and only 15 minute drive to Weymouth seafront which makes it a great location for everyone.
