This pretty Grade II-listed mid-row cottage is the ideal retreat for all the family. With a pub next door and a stunning garden, this is a true countryside getaway.

Located in the heart of the village of Church Knowle, this Grade II-listed cottage has rustic charm in abundance and sleeps up to eight guests. Enjoy views over the rolling Purbeck Hills from the large lawned garden or wander next door to the pub for a refreshing drink or delicious meal. You’re welcome to bring a dog, and with plenty of walks in the Hartland Moor National Nature Reserve and the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, both two-legged and four-legged creatures will be happy.

With period features throughout, including beamed ceilings, an inglenook fireplace and snuggly bedrooms in the eaves, this cottage has a cosy, welcoming feel. You can settle into the sofa and warm your toes by the wood burner on colder evenings, or relax in the conservatory on warmer days and enjoy the garden views. There is also a games room including a PS3 console and a reading area. You’ll find all four bedrooms and two bathrooms on the first and second floors, just mind your head in the eaves.

Families will love Dorset Adventure Park (2 miles) with its waterpark and mud trail. If you fancy staying close by the village playground is just 45m from the cottage. The coast at Kimmeridge Bay is 3.5 miles away, where you can spend all day snorkelling, swimming and rock-pooling or walk up to Clavell Tower and be rewarded with stunning views over the bay.

Beautiful cottage, in a lovely location and well looked after. We really enjoyed our stay.

Other than that it was lovely and relaxing. Looking to rebook again anRead mored recommended to our friends and family. Hide

Location is great, garden is lovely and cottage very comfortable. A little rustic in places and we were staying for two nights over a weekend and didn't have enough towels for each person, toilet roll or dishwasher tablets which was a little annoying. We called to ask for the missing towels to be dropped off and they said they would be but weren't.Read more Some small annoyances but overall we really enjoyed the cottage for our girls weekend.

A lovely cottage at any time of the year, particularly this Christmas, in a location we know well. Great pub next door and Purbeck is one of our favourite places to visit in the UK. Will definitely come back!

Very clean cottage with all you could need. Pub noise was not a problem. There is however no guaranteed parking. The cottage is well located if you have transport to get to the coast.
