The perfect bolthole for a couple, this characterful property is part of a country estate with beautiful gardens. With the use of an outdoor pool and tennis court, it’s a great choice for a relaxing break.
Immerse yourself in glorious manor house grounds and the picturesque Dorset countryside when you stay at this romantic retreat at Minterne Magna. Sleeping just two guests, the one-bedroom cottage is set within a country house estate, 11.5 miles from Dorchester and 20 miles from the coast at Abbotsbury and Osmington Mills. Also welcoming four-legged guests, the exquisite, period hideaway could be idyllic for a dog-loving couple.
Let yourselves into the delightful holiday home, set within a walled garden that now encompasses an outdoor swimming pool, to find yourselves in an inviting, open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. Light the wood burner in here on crisp autumn and winter days and keep the French windows open on to the patio during fine weather. Find a film to enjoy on the Smart TV or DVD player or listen to music as you relax. The kitchen has everything you need to help you whip up tasty meals for two and there is a wet room at ground-floor level where you can enjoy a hot shower after long walks. Follow the winding, cottage-style stairs up to the first floor, where there is a super-king-size, mezzanine bedroom, with scenic views. Bask in the sunshine out on the terrace, where you can fire up the BBQ on summer evenings, or wander through the shared garden, with its lawn tennis court and heated swimming pool, for use between April and October, with private slots for guests at this cottage. There is ample parking.
Enjoy your proximity to beautiful Minterne Gardens, just 20 metres from the bolthole and with an abundance of colour to enjoy. Travel 4.5 miles to see the National Trust’s famous Cerne Giant, an ancient figure sculpted into the chalk hillside above Cerne Abbas. While away afternoons pottering in colourful, independent shops in Dorchester and pausing for cream teas.
