A picture-postcard thatched cottage located in Winfrith Newburgh village, this property offers the elusive mix of authentic charm, style and plenty of luxuries for all generations to appreciate.

Located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and within a stone’s throw of the famous Jurassic Coast, this cottage will appeal to wildlife-watchers, nature-lovers and sports enthusiasts. Pick up one of the many country walks from the village or venture a little further away. Of course, a visit to Durdle Door (3 miles) and Lulworth Cove (3.5 miles) is a must, both of which can be enjoyed from the cliff paths, beach or water. An 11-mile drive away, Weymouth offers shops, bistros and activities galore. To enjoy a new perspective of the Dorset coast, hop on a day boat from the Kings Arms’ steps. You may even see some dolphins if you are lucky.

Walk through the side gate and head across the rear garden peppered with flowers. Once inside the property, you are immediately met by the fantastic kitchen with dining table. The true heart of the home, the kitchen’s ceiling is traced by open beams and a Rayburn sits proudly in a little nook, blasting out heat in the winter. A well-appointed space, you will love spending time in here whether it’s over tea and toast or to prepare a meal for the whole family. Everything you could need for your stay is provided, including an oven and hob, a fridge, a dishwasher, a microwave, a kettle and more. Play some tunes on the radio and enjoy the homely feel. Stepping out of the kitchen and into a small hallway, you can find a downstairs bathroom to your right with a shower and WC. Ahead, there is the lounge. A spacious room, the lounge has two sofas and an armchair. Sit back and turn on the TV or let your gaze drift to the open fire, a dreamy addition for winter nights. From the lounge, a set of steep, cottage-style stairs with a rope handrail leads you up to one of the property’s bedrooms: a double bedroom that has access to the upstairs bathroom. The bathroom has two doors, the second one of which leads down onto another landing via two steps. Here, there are two more bedrooms, one with twin beds and another with bunk beds for two. These bedrooms are also accessible via a second, similarly styled staircase from the kitchen.

For long afternoons in the sunshine, the property has a rear garden with a BBQ, a lawn and an outside seating area.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

As always immaculately clean and welcoming! The touch of leaving a tile log for our Christmas stay was very thoughtful. Everything had been thought of

Fabulous cottage, everything you would expect BUT no first aid kit?! Something so simple, which we desperately needed when my husband cut himself in the kitchen by accident

Reviewed by Mrs S Howie-Brown 22nd September 2018

The cottage is lovely but the traffics noise was a problem. We had to buy a CD player as there wasnt one to drown out the noise in the kitchen and living room. Bedroom not a problem as its at the back.

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.
