The jewel of the property is the light and airy sitting room with warming open fire and original wooden floor boards. The dining room benefits from double aspect windows and has a homely traditional feel. The kitchen is fully equipped with oven and hob, fridge, microwave, washing machine, freezer, tumble dryer, dishwasher and access to the adjoining conservatory. For convenience, there is a downstairs WC. All of the four bedrooms are accessed via steep stairs up to the first floor and each is bright and airy with double aspect windows making the most of the stunning views. There is also a bathroom with a shower and WC, and a separate WC on the first floor.

Stepping outside to the front of the property there is a large gravel parking area, a multi-level paved area and lawn surrounded with a beautiful selection of flowers and foliage. A side path property leads to a wonderful back courtyard garden decorated with shrubs and access to the conservatory.

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.
