Found in the quaint village of Litton Cheney, the cottage is surrounded by an area peppered with natural springs and offers an idyllic getaway for nature-lovers looking to unwind.

Only 3 miles from the coast, a trip to the beach should definitely be atop your list. Drive 3.5 miles to West Bexington and take a walk along the long, shingle beach. Benefiting from glorious views on clear days, your heart and mind can enjoy a refreshing lift. For a more exotic vibe, head 6 miles to the Grade I-listed Abbotsbury Subtropical Gardens. Only 7 miles from Bridport and 17 miles from the famous Lyme Regis, you can get your fill of pretty streets and little shops and reward yourselves with an ice cream on the front or hearty meal in a local bistro.

One of two cottages, this property offers spacious accommodation for a family or group of friends. If you want to relax after a long drive, the perfect place to explore first is the lounge. A large room with rustic features and plenty of home comforts, the lounge is a welcoming sight. Home to a range of comfortable seating, there is plenty of space for everyone to sit back and make themselves at home. Light the open fire on chilly nights and enjoy the relaxed atmosphere. For extra entertainment, a TV and DVD player, as well as DVDs, have been provided. Separated by a small dividing wall, the lounge also features a desk where you can use your laptop or write in your diary about the day’s adventures. Also on the ground floor is the kitchen/diner. A family-orientated room with plenty of space, you can create hearty meals in the kitchen and then come together around the dining table. For culinary masterpieces, the kitchen is equipped with an oven, electric hob, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and plenty of storage and utensils. Upstairs is home to the property’s three bedrooms. Roomy, aesthetic bedrooms finished with thoughtful details, they include a double, a twin and a single bed. There is also a bathroom on the upper floor that has a shower, bath and WC.

To the front of the property, there is a stone terrace with flower borders and to the rear, a private garden, accessed via some steps, with a BBQ and outside furniture. The cottage also has designated parking for one car.

Lovely cottage, well equipped and with lots of character. So close to the sea and to the main routes to the major coastal towns. Perfect. Thank you for a lovely stay.

Reviewed by Ms F McLeod 29th August 2018

Good size, very well equipped, ideal for our needs. It was good to find that cleaning materials, teatowels, toilet paper etc were provided. Only (minor) negative comment is that that the (otherwise excellent)shower jets the water at the wall, not towards the floor. James adjusted the pressure but this did not make much difference. There is a desigRead moren fault here. The whole family commented on this. There were supposed to be intructions for the equipment but we could not find them. Fewer wine glasses and more mugs would have suited us better. Hide

Location

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

Dorset, a location of enduring popularity is a small rural gem of a county encompassing all of the best parts of rural England: rolling green hills, woodland and hedgerows abundant with flora and fauna running down to the sea yet situated just 3 hours from London and the South East.

The whole coastline from Exmouth to Poole has been declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO. Known as the Jurassic Coast, it is the only natural phenomenon in England to achieve this status and offers unspoilt views with dramatic cliff-top walks alongside beautiful, safe, sandy beaches which often welcome your four-legged friends too. From the dramatic natural rock arch at Durdle Door to the endless sandy expanses of Studland; Dorset has it all.

This South West county is also a treasure trove of secrets waiting to be discovered. Having grown out of the landscape out of the centuries, many of Dorset’s small rural towns expose history at every turn to inform and delight guests, whilst for the more energetic, footpaths and cycle-ways open up to reveal Dorset’s hidden secrets and the coast is always close at hand for those who love the water.

Why not head to Lyme Regis – classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, much like most of West Dorset to uncover an old-world ambience and excellent fossil hunting or discover the drama of Lulworth with the iconic Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove.

Dorset’s towns and villages ooze quintessential charm and are graced by fine buildings which have often been immortalised in Thomas Hardy’s books, including Dorchester – his birthplace. Wherever you choose to stay, you are never far from the fascinating Jurassic Coast and World Heritage Coastal Path.
