A charming getaway in the country, this Grade II listed thatched cottage has roots dating back to the 17th century and is bursting with period charm and modern luxuries.
Down a quiet lane in the peaceful hamlet of Coombe Keynes, this picturesque thatched cottage sits surrounded by Purbeck countryside. Characterful and spacious with a large, sunny garden, it’s perfect for families. Situated less than 3 miles from the sea, and close to many local attractions, enjoy fun-filled days amid the calming sanctuary of this homely cottage.
This 17th century, Grade II listed cottage has been lovingly restored. Open the front door, complete with a portcullis window, and step down into the porch. Kick off your boots, hang up your coats and enter the hub of the house. Downstairs is bright and welcoming with beautiful wooden floors throughout. A cosy window seat makes a lovely perch in the central dining area, with plenty of books and games to choose from. Cuddling up together in the cosy sitting room with the wood burner lit makes family time extra special. The kitchen is off the dining area, with four steps leading up and reveals an Aga - the perfect spot for drying out wet wellies – while a downstairs bathroom, with a shower over the bath, is off the kitchen. The upstairs comprises of two double bedrooms, one single with charming beams that are low in places, and a contemporary shower room. This cottage naturally leads you to the south-facing tiered garden with a patio area and steps to a large lawn. Watch out for the step outside the bathroom too. There is parking for one car.
