This former village bakery is an ideal retreat only 4.5 miles from Weymouth town centre, boasting direct access to fabulous coastal and countryside walking opportunities.
This former village bakery has been lovingly turned into a beautiful property close to some of the best coastal and inland walks that Dorset’s Jurassic Coast has to offer. With enough space for six, plus a dog, this property is perfect for a family or group of friends looking to ditch the car; the local farm shop with tea rooms is within 200 metres of the property and the coast is less than 1 mile on foot.
Entering under the flowered arbour over the front door, you’ll discover characterful accommodation with modern touches. The pretty sitting room has a feature window seat and a wonderful stone fireplace housing the wood burner. The kitchen has a cheerful feel and even has a sofa and TV, ideal for social cooking time before you all gather around the farmhouse dining table. One of the property’s two bathrooms is also downstairs. The first floor is reached up steep narrow tread stairs and is where the three bedrooms can be found: two doubles (one with a sleigh bed) and a twin room. A second bathroom ensures there’s no need to queue in the morning. Outside, a gravelled courtyard garden with a BBQ is perfect for a morning coffee or evening glass of wine. On street parking is available outside the property.
Weymouth is 5 miles west and has a host of different activities for the whole family, plus a wide range of shops, cafes and restaurants. Don’t miss the Nothe Fort; a Victorian fort housing memorabilia from World War II. Heading east, the dramatic limestone arch Durdle Door is 9.5 miles away by road, or 7.5 miles on the South West Coast Path – well-worth the effort for the stunning views.
