Located in the picturesque Shipton Gorge village, this delightful cottage is the perfect home-from-home for families and groups of friends to enjoy an unforgettable holiday.
Surrounded by walking opportunities and places to get out and about amongst Dorset’s diverse scenery, this retreat is perfect for both hardcore adventurers and leisurely strollers alike. Take your pick of country routes nearby, or head 8 miles away to explore Golden Cap and the gorgeous coast paths. Only 2 miles away, make sure you pop over to Hive Beach for seascapes and good food. Closer to home, the village is served by two eateries, so you can enjoy a meal out in good company.
Come into the porch and leave your coats and shoes. Before heading into the main hub of the home, you can browse the porch’s bookcases and choose some reading material for evenings curled up on the sofa. There’s also a handy downstairs WC. From the entrance hall, you can access the lounge/diner. Both spacious and cosy, the room has been finished with thoughtful details and has plenty of seating including a dining table with chairs for all the family. Whether you’re enjoying a relaxed morning or luxurious evening in, warm your toes in front of the wood burner and switch on the TV for some added entertainment. With light flooding in from the windows and French patio doors, it is a great space to kick back throughout the day. Also on the ground floor is the kitchen. Furnished with an oven and electric hob, a fridge, a microwave, a kettle, a toaster and lots of pots and utensils, you can find everything you need for meal preparations. There is also a dishwasher and a washing machine provided for extra convenience. Switch on the radio or open the door to the garden and listen to the melody of birdsong outside. Upstairs, there is an attractive family bathroom with a bath and overhead shower, and three bedrooms. These include two doubles (one with a king-size bed) and a twin, with slightly reduced head height in places.
Outside, there is a gravel courtyard to the rear of the cottage with a BBQ and a wooden doghouse, as well as the garage. From here, gated steps lead up to pretty grass terraces, too. For somewhere to leave your wheels, there is dedicated parking for two cars.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
