Situated close to a quaint village green this beautiful Grade II listed thatched cottage is full of character and offers cosy accommodation for a family looking to explore Dorset’s Jurassic Coast.

This delightful, Grade II listed thatched cottage is one of two character properties tucked away close to East Chaldon village green. Inside, the accommodation has been beautifully updated and modernised to create light, spacious and contemporary living spaces while retaining plenty of original charm through exposed beams, an inglenook fireplace with wood burner and cottage doors. With a games room, Wendy House and large garden with BBQ, this property offers something for all ages and is just 1.5 miles from the South West Coast Path.

A stable door opens into a kitchen/diner, which displays a charming farmhouse style with a Purbeck stone floor, oak worktops, chunky dining table and plenty of natural light. The lounge/diner retains exposed beams, a large inglenook fireplace with original bread oven, flagstone floor and window seats, with the later additions of a wood burner, Smart TV, Bluetooth speaker and cosy sofas. A door opens onto a sunny patio area with plenty of seating for summer BBQs and the large lawn beyond is bordered by fruit trees and roses. While guests of all ages will enjoy a competitive game of table tennis or darts in the thatched games room, little tots can spend happy summer afternoons playing in the delightful Wendy House nearby. There is private parking.

Surrounded by rolling Dorset countryside, this property is just 150 yards from the local pub, Sailor’s Return. The dramatic Jurassic coastline lies just 1.5 miles away, where the South West Coast Path can be joined to reach the iconic geological structures at Durdle Door and the stunning white pebble beach at Lulworth Cove. Nearby Winfrith Newburgh hosts an award-winning village store and Post Office, while a little further afield the riverside town of Wareham (10.5 miles) offers a wider selection of shops and eateries.

A perfect cottage in a perfect peaceful location. Beautifully finished inside, a lovely secluded garden and patio outside. A stones throw from a great pub. Ideal location for exploring and a pleasure coming home and lighting the open fire for a cosy evening in. Would love to return.

Great location, wonderful garden, well equipped. The WiFi stopped working our stay, but the owner was swift to sort out the problem, not that it was overly important to us - so much else to do!

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.

Although it's just three hours from London and the South East, Dorset feels like a world away from the hubbub of the city. This gem of a county offers the very best of rural England: magnificent coastal scenery, vast sandy beaches, rolling hills, charming villages, country pubs, stately homes and medieval castles.

Take time to explore the dramatic and diverse coastline. Stretching 95 miles from East Devon to Poole, the Jurassic Coast has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and is the only natural phenomenon in England to achieve this status. Here, visitors can uncover Earth's fascinating history whilst enjoying unspoilt views over superb beaches, many of which welcome canine companions too. From the iconic rural rock arch at Durdle Door to the endless sandy expanses of Studland, Dorset has it all.

Why not head to Lyme Regis, classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty? Like much of West Dorset, it has an old-world ambience and offers excellent fossil hunting opportunities. Or head east to discover the beauty of Lulworth and the vibrant seaside resort of Swanage.

Steeped in history and with a certain quintessential charm, Dorset's glorious countryside is peppered with small towns and villages which are well worth a visit. Many are graced with fine buildings, immortalised in the books of Thomas Hardy, a Dorset-born novelist and poet. For more energetic visitors, footpaths and cycleways reveal the county's hidden secrets with the coast always close at hand for those who love the water.
