A former stables located within tranquil grounds, this ideal property for couples has history and character aplenty with all of today's modern comforts thrown in.

This property is a delightful former stable with a light and airy interior on the edge of the village of Winfrith Newburgh. Situated within the owner’s grounds, you have complete privacy and can take in the pretty long avenue of Lime Trees from the seating area on the patio. You’re in an enviable location for a couples’ retreat with the coast 4 miles away and the local pub just 1 mile away.

Enter the cottage through French doors from the terrace into the spacious open-plan living area, where warm tones welcome you to sit back in front of the TV or look out across the grounds. Fix yourself a snack in the kitchen area where you’ll find everything you need and enjoy it sitting at the table that’s perfect for two. The bathroom has pretty neutral tiles in the shower and over the sink, giving it a rustic feel. Upstairs, the king-sized bedroom has plenty of light and stunning wooden beams that remind you of this property’s former use; mind your head on the eaves. Snuggle up with a film on the TV/DVD in the evening after a busy day. Outside, there are wildflowers and a lawn to each side of the driveway, and climbing plants, flowerbeds and herbs on the patio make it a peaceful spot to watch the sun go down on the wooden bench.

Coastal and countryside walks are all available from this cottage; walk the South West Coast Path from Durdle Door (3 miles) to Lulworth Cove (4 miles) or even further for breathtaking views and blue seas. Or take the ‘Scratchy Bottom’ route to see vast countryside views and a glimpse of Portland.

Beautiful location and so quiet. Used the nearby pasture for evening drinks, dinner and then looking at the stars. Watched the farmer ploughing the adjacent field. Everything we needed was to hand. Walked to local pub twice. Great local bus service from near the post office. Used the local shop for basic provisions. Everyone we met was so friendly Read moreand happy to chat. Walked Lulworth Cove to Durdle Door: visited Brownsea Island, Abbotsbury gardens and Arne nature Reserve. Highly recommended. Hide

We stayed at the stable with our 2 year old red Labrador, Matilda. She had a ball! She particularly enjoyed running up and down the long drive chasing her ball and the occasional rabbit, as well as bouncing in the wild flower meadow. We loved the remoteness and darkness and sitting out on the patio with a beer and the bats. Easy drive to Lulworth CRead moreove and the car park at Durdle Door. Also enjoyed visiting Studland Bay, Lulworth castle and Arne. Julian, Janey & Havoc were very welcoming hosts. Hide

Beautiful location, very peaceful. Lovely cottage, but a shame the outside space wasnt fenced in for the dogs. Outside seating would have been nice if there were comfy chairs, not just 2 hard uncomfortable ones. Well equipped lovely paddock to sit in at night and watch the sunset. Fabulous walks nearby and a v well stocked shop.

The property was very comfortable and peaceful. The location is excellent, coastal walks can be accessed from the property although you need to be reasonably fit, Lulworth Cove can be reached on foot and is less than 5 minutes in the car. Local pubs the Red Lion and the Sailors Return (Wednesday Pie Night) served excellent food and proper real alesRead more, we have a large dog and he was made very welcome at all pubs we visited in the area. Well worth visiting Corfe Castle which is a short drive away. Hide

Very good place to stay for a week. It is very quiet and dark being situated well outside the village. I like the privacy of the place and the fact you can park right outside the entrance door.

Small, cosy cottage with everything necessary for your self catering holiday. Be prepared for patchy signal reception for your mobile phones, but there is a wi-fi booster in the property. Small patio with wooden table and 2 chairs. Constant hot water and central heating, which certainly wasnt needed, but there are also tube heaters just to take offRead more any chill in the evenings, obviously depending when youre there.
