Former-coastguard’s cottage sleeping six guests in four bedrooms, offering spectacular sea views and a spacious lawned garden, located on St Alban’s Head on the Isle of Purbeck peninsula.
This property enjoys a stunning clifftop location with spectacular sea views and is situated walking distance from the secluded cove at Chapman’s Pool. This quiet cove is a popular spot for strong swimmers as well as fossil hunters, thanks to the area’s rich geological history. A more traditional family-friendly beach can be found in Swanage, which is located a short drive from the property and offers a wide sandy beach, beach-front entertainment, a restored Victorian pier, and a good choice of cafes and restaurants.
Once two cottages, this property has been thoughtfully renovated to create a spacious holiday retreat in a stunning clifftop vantage, from which sea views can be viewed from the majority of the rooms. Upon arrival, guests have a choice of rooms in which to unwind after their journey, as there are two separate lounges. The first of these is a light-filled room offering an inviting sofa, TV, and an open fire, whilst a set of doors from here lead through to the second lounge: a cosy space with another open fire, armchairs, and a leather sofa. A games room is another excellent space to spend time after a busy day and offers a pool table which will no doubt attract more competitive guests in the evenings. The cottage’s kitchen/diner, meanwhile, is a generously-sized and well-equipped room where guests will find everything they need to make themselves at home including an AGA oven, hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, and washing machine. A convenient cloakroom with WC can also be found on the ground floor, whilst the bathroom with its shower-over ¾-sized bath and WC can be found upstairs on the first floor alongside the property’s four bedrooms. All of the bedrooms have been simply and elegantly furnished to create restful retreats with views across the countryside or out to sea, allowing guest to wake up to simply stunning views. The master bedroom is a king-size room which has its own wood burner, in addition to which there are two double rooms and one twin, which like the king-size has a cosy wood burner.
Outside, the property benefits from an attractive lawned garden which is fully enclosed by a wall and a gate. This is an idyllic place to relax and play and is furnished with table and chairs and a BBQ, however guests should be aware that the gate is not secured and there is open access to the clifftop beyond the gate, therefore children should not be left alone in the garden. There is parking for three cars just outside the cottage. Please note that the property is approached via a 1.5 mile long unmade track, and is not suitable for cars with low-ground clearance.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
Please note there is a refundable £100 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.
