Enjoying a peaceful countryside location in the village of Chideock, family and friends can spend the holiday of a lifetime sandwiched between country and coast.

Less than a mile from Seatown beach, you can look forward to many an afternoon lazing by the shore. A shingle beach overlooked by the stunning Golden Cap, this little slice of paradise is easily accessed by walking from the end of the farm lane and picking up the path to the beach. Once you’ve had your fill of relaxation, pop into one of three local pubs and indulge in a refreshing drink or filling meal. For a bit more action, visit Bridport (3 miles) and browse the number of shops, restaurants and attractions on offer.

Inside the property, the fabulous ground floor is largely taken up by the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. A bright and airy space flooded with light, there is a modern, contemporary feel coupled with plenty of home comforts. With a large sofa and two armchairs encircling a coffee table and TV, you can gather around with fresh mugs of your favourite beverage for a natter or catch up on the news. Complete with a Hi-Fi, wood burner-effect electric fire and great views onto the gravelled garden, you can let yourselves totally unwind. If you are a bit of a foodie, you will love the large kitchen area. With a row of worktops and appliances on one side and breakfast bar on the other, there is plenty of space to create a culinary showstopper or sit with a magazine and a mountain of buttery toast. Home to a microwave, a toaster, a kettle, an oven and electric hob, a fridge/freezer and a dishwasher, all stages of meal prep are looked after – including the washing up! Also on the ground floor is a downstairs WC. Upstairs, you will come to the property’s second bathroom (including a bath with a shower overhead and a heated towel rail) and three bedrooms. Featuring a double with its own en-suite bathroom (with a walk-in shower), another double and a single room, bedtimes will be a real treat.

Outside, a gravelled garden has outdoor furniture and a BBQ, ideal for summer days. There are also shared recreational lawns nearby, as well as parking for two cars.

Enjoyed our stay at Elm Barn. Loved the open plan kitchen/living area, although a slightly larger TV would have been nice. Beautiful coastline and good walks from cottage to Seatown and Golden Cap.

Reviewed by Mrs E Roberts 4th November 2018

Elm Barn was beautifully equipped and comfortably furnished, we were very happy with all aspects of the accommodation.

A lovely warm and spacious cottage. Great location for walks to the beach at Seatown and Golden Cap. We thoroughly enjoyed our few days here.

Reviewed by Miss M Dutton 14th October 2018

We were a couple staying at this cottage & was spacious. It was ideally located for plentiful walking with the coast and local village within 20 mins walk. It feels private with low maintenance garden & a great kitchen. This space would work well for a family too. The master is large with en suite but the second bedroom with no en suite is considerRead moreably smaller: this might concern two couples sharing. Hide

Reviewed by Mrs E Walker 26th September 2018

In a beautiful location with great walks to the beach on your doorstep. The open plan layout downstairs works well as a fabulous social space. However, holidaying as two couples we found the second double bedroom disappointingly too small for the price we paid.

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.
