Enjoying a secluded hilltop position, this beautiful 18th-century property offers stunning views across the Isle of Purbeck and towards Corfe Castle. Part of a charming terrace of properties in the historic village of Kingston, this cosy and traditional stone-built period cottage provides friendly and welcoming accommodation for up to eight guests. Perfect for families and friends, the cottage is ideally placed for exploring Dorset’s stunning beaches, beautiful nature reserves and the spellbinding vistas of the Jurassic Coast.
A flagstone hallway leads you through to the warm and colourful lounge, an ideal spot to sit back and unwind with a movie on the TV or a good book in front of the wood burner. The galley-style kitchen is equipped with everything you may need for a favourite meal which you can share in the beautiful dining room. Full of character, this room has traditional ceiling beams, stone flooring and a feature fireplace. Steps lead down to a double bedroom, shower room and a bunk bedroom which has been converted from former outbuildings. The cottage also has a first-floor twin room, double room and bathroom. Due to the age of the property, there are many changes of level and character features including low doorways and areas of restricted head height, adding to its charm.

A traditional ha-ha runs along the bottom of the garden.
