It has a quintessentially English exterior, but on the inside it is cool and contemporary, making it a fabulous place for families looking to explore the Dorset coast and countryside.

A family home from home sleeping seven people, this picturesque thatched stone cottage offers a private slice of paradise. A quintessentially English retreat, it has comfort and convenience in abundance. Boasting great access to the local amenities and only 0.5 miles from the coast, you never have to venture far to treat your eyes, mind and stomach. Relax and unwind, your holiday has begun.

Coming inside, you are immediately met with a sense of calm. For relaxed mornings in your pyjamas or cosy evenings in, the lounge has comfortable seating and a wood burner-style gas fire to add to the ambience. Switch on the TV for light entertainment or push open the garden doors to let birdsong flood in. When you are ready for foodie fun, the kitchen balances traditional style with lots of mod cons (including a range-style cooker with an induction hob) to create a fully functional, attractive space. Cook up a medley of tastes and textures and come together around the dining table. If you would like to curl up somewhere quiet with a book, the conservatory with doors to the garden is the place to be. Upstairs, the property’s four bedrooms await, including a 6' double (that can be turned into a twin) with en-suite shower/hand-basin (no WC), a double, twin and a single. There is also a family bathroom with bath with shower overhead. Outside, the pretty rear garden has a gravelled seating area and is surrounded by an abundance of mature plants, flower beds, shrubs, climbers and a BBQ. To the front, 11 steps lead up from the road to an unenclosed sloping garden.

5 miles from Weymouth, there are ample opportunities for shopping, eating and coastal forays to enjoy at your leisure. 10 miles away, a trip the iconic Lulworth Cove is a must, as is the famous Durdle Door (9.5 miles). The delightful county town of Dorchester (8 miles) is a short drive away.

This is the 2nd time we live here and this is not the last time.

A modern, clean cottage with every facility (home from home) in an ideal location to explore the Dorset coastline. Also, walking distance to a Dairy Farm - fresh milk & everyday consumables on your doorstep!

Reviewed by Mrs R Common 2nd April 2019

We found the information about the heating system very difficult to follow and suggest that this is made more comprehensible! Otherwise this is a comfortable cottage and reflected its description.

Reviewed by Mrs G Gee 3rd January 2019

The cottage was beautifully decorated with a Christmas tree, fairy lights and tinsel. The kitchen was extremely well equipped to feed a large number of people. The beds were very comfortable and the cottage had a very cosy atmosphere.

Reviewed by Mrs J Burton 8th September 2018

Extremely comfortable and welcoming with lots of personal touches

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.
