A stunning 19th-century former gardener’s cottage nestled within a private estate offering a wonderful base to explore the beauty of the Jurassic Coastline and picturesque countryside of West Dorset.
Located in the grounds of a private estate, this 19th-century former-gardener's cottage is the ideal hideaway for solo travellers or couples. Spread out across one floor, the property marries traditional themes with homely touches to create attractive, harmonious spaces. With a wide range of pubs and shops in nearby Lyme Regis (3.5 miles), you can choose to enjoy the privacy of your retreat or head into town for a lively atmosphere.
Come in through the front door and step down into the lounge. A bright space full of character, the room has a sofa and two armchairs so you can find the perfect pew. Pick up a book from the shelves, turn on the TV or connect your phone to the Bluetooth speaker and play out some tunes. In an open-plan design, a dining table for two and kitchen adjoin the lounge. Well-equipped with everything you could need, the kitchen is a fully functional space with plenty of appliances and utensils. After a long day sight-seeing, relax with some bubbles in the bathroom’s bath with overhead shower and wrap yourself in a warm towel from the heated towel rail. Later, turn in for the day in the bedroom, home to a double bed and door to outside terrace area. With terraces on three sides of the cottage, you can rotate with the sun throughout the day.
Boasting its very own beach, outdoorsy guests will love making use of this private haven. Accessed via a rugged path less than 1 mile from the property, a steepish descent will take you onto a 500-yard long beach, great for snorkelling in the summer! For cosmopolitan vibes, head to Lyme Regis, the ‘Pearl of Dorset’, and wander past multicoloured beach huts, ice cream in hand. Sidmouth with its red cliffs is 13 miles away.
