This delightful terraced cottage is set in the heart of a sleepy village surrounded by beautiful scenery and historic landmarks, offering a relaxing retreat for families to unwind and reconnect.

This 18th-century terraced cottage is located on a quiet country lane in Winfrith Newburgh and enjoys open countryside views. Just inside the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, it is the perfect base for a family or group of friends looking to explore the natural beauty of the area, with local village amenities on your doorstep.

Inside, character charm blends with modern style to create a property that’s perfect for socialising and catching up with loved ones. The sitting room has the ideal mix of period features with a beamed brick fireplace and a bay window plus modern devices such as TV and music system. A fully-equipped kitchen with all modern conveniences is ideal for catering the evening meals, which can be enjoyed in the dining room, with the grand table adding a sense of occasion. Relax in the peaceful garden room, which has a vaulted ceiling and doors out to the patio creating a sense of light and space. Tinkle the ivories or play some tunes via the sound system that covers the ground floor. Steep winding stairs lead to four bedrooms: a double, a twin and two singles, plus a large family bathroom. Outside, the rear garden is the perfect place to relax in the sun – recline on the terrace or light up the BBQ as you enjoy the views over the local area. There is parking for one car at the property, with additional parking in the village.

Winfrith Newburgh is 9 miles from the county town of Dorchester, offering a wide range of things to do that will please all members of the family – including visiting the historic Roman townhouse, the military museum or the teddy bear museum. The coast and Durdle Door is less than 3 miles away, and a visit to this spectacular part of the world is not complete without a trip to see the stunning limestone arch.

A really lovely house , exceptionally cosy and warm for winter break. Super comfortable beds, and very well stocked. Welcome box with tea and coffee a very nice touch and a starter fire kit. The place felt like home from day one and we were reluctant to leave. Ideal for a family and for a group of pensioners!

A great place for a 3 generational Christmas celebration. Having a high quality, tuned piano added hugely to festivities and we found both the village church and store very friendly. Surrounded by dorset countryside and Lulworth cove is just down the road.

Thornicks House is a lovely cottage and garden in a very pretty village. We really appreciated the peaceful surroundings and found good local walks. There is only one pub/restaurant within easy walking distance - we would have liked to make less use of the car but there is much to do in this beautiful area.

This is a lovely, peaceful cottage, spotlessly clean and extremely well equipped. the garden was great as well. Very convenient for the village shop, and close to lots of countryside walks and the bus stop. Really appreciated the welcoming pint of milk ( and bottle of Prosecco !).

We had a fantastic stay in Thornics house. We felt so welcome and at home there. Old, charming and well equipped cottage. Nice private garden and relaxing atmosphere. The piano was the icing on the cake. Short drive to many attractions nearby, and footpath to the village and shop, and also to the red lion bar for a brew in the evening. Very friendlRead morey locals! Would love to come back! Hide

Characterful cottage, in a great quiet location with a lovely garden. Short walk to village shop, and bus stop. Very well equiped. One tight parking space close to cottage, but no problem parking in the village.

Great location for visiting Purbeck and the Jurassic coast. Highlights for the children aged 8 and 11 were Chesil Beach, Corfe Castle, Durdle Door, Dorset Museum, Etches Museum and Abbotsbury Gardens. Local shop has lovely pies and pasties.

Lovely house and garden in a pretty and peaceful setting. A sort walk to the local post office and village store and the nearby farm shop. The house itself is really well equipped with everything you could need. Within a short drive to a whole host of lovely beaches. Would recommend the Lulworth Lodge and the Sailor's Return for fabulous meals out!

Ideal location for walking and trips to Durdle Door, Lulworth, Brownsea Island, Monkey World, Swanage, Studland, Old Harry and much more.

Lots of space, tastefully furnished and very atmospheric. Very much felt I was going back in time, in a good way. Would have been great for dining, with big dining table and open plan kitchen, plus good equipment. Interestingly, my school-age daughters and foreign wife all liked the property as much as I did, as a Brit - and all of us, most probablRead morey, for slightly different reasons. Good central location for all we wanted to see in Dorset. Enjoyed staying in village untouched by tourism. Hide
