Feel instantly at home in this property for two with its own private terrace and get to know this beautiful part of West Dorset. Spend your days roaming the countryside in search of the finest viewpoints, dining to your heart's content and visiting the Jurassic Coast’s finest beaches for a trip to remember.

Welcoming you into the property is the modern open-plan living room/kitchen/diner with a cosy seating area with an armchair and L-shaped sofa, paired with a quaint wood burner and Smart TV for a romantic evening in. The kitchen is small but perfectly formed, with a neutral colour palette and all you could need to cook up a feast to serve on the dining table for two. From the main living space, you’ll find a door to the thoughtfully decorated bedroom with a large feature window. Completing the property is the tiled bathroom with a bathtub where you can enjoy a good book and a long soak. Outside, take a walk down the shared path to the side of the property to make the most of the enclosed terrace with a lovely wildlife pond and comfortable furniture.

Make the most of staying in such a stunning rural area with walks such as the Pilsdon Pen (6 miles), Ham Hill (14 miles) and the Cerne Abbas Giant (14.5 miles) all offering dramatic viewpoints of the sweeping landscapes. Bridport (5 miles) is a great place to spend a day if you’re looking to explore a selection of independent shops and eateries.
