This lovely barn conversion boasts space, comfort and a great location and is the ideal hideaway for both relaxation-seekers and sports-enthusiasts alike to spend quality time with family and friends.

With a footpath across the fields to the South West Coast Path, this property enjoys excellent access to local amenities and beauty spots. Walk under a mile to the nearby shingle beach and inhale revitalising lungfuls of salty, sea air. No trip to the area would be complete without visiting the stunning Golden Cap, 2 miles away. Only 0.5 miles inland, the thatched local pub is worth a visit, too, for a drink in the sunny beer garden or hot meal by the fire. For the best of culture and coast, drive 7.5 miles to Lyme Regis, the ‘Pearl of Dorset’, to wander past colourful beach huts and visit the town’s many beaches.

The middle property in a row of three, this delightful barn conversion faces a single-storey cottage and farm buildings nearby. Providing ample space, privacy and style, every aspect of the property’s interior has been carefully thought out. Step into the entrance hall and kick off your shoes. A small WC is located off the hallway, before you step through to the open-plan living area. A wide, open space, the lounge/kitchen/diner manages to have both a warm, cosy feel as well as plenty of room to spread out. Melt into one of the lounge’s cosy sofas and turn on the TV or look out through the French doors onto the gravel terrace outside. In the winter, a wood burner provides a welcome addition, throwing a radiant glow across the room. Backing onto the lounge is the kitchen; a stylish, well-provisioned space which has everything you could need for your stay, and more. Amongst the many utensils and appliances, you will find an oven with electric hob, a fridge, a freezer, a microwave, a toaster and a kettle. A dishwasher is even provided for post-meal harmony. To complete the living area, a dining table sits to one side of the room, basking in light from the windows. Upstairs, many of the rooms enjoy fantastic countryside views. Home to three bedrooms, your guests can take their pick from a king-size bed, a single bed with a pull-out bed stored below, and a twin bed. Also upstairs is the family bathroom, including a bath with a shower overhead, and a heated towel rail.

Outside, there is a fenced gravel garden to the rear where you can make use of a sunny terrace and a BBQ. You can also feel free to explore the shared recreational lawns close by. Making life a little easier for groups, there is also dedicated parking available for two cars.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

We enjoyed our stay at Larch Cottage, it is situated in an excellent position for walks to Seatown Beach and the surrounding countryside. However, the picnic table in the back garden needs attention, it needs re-varnishing and strengthening because it wasn't level. The BBQ could do with replacing because it was corroded.In the kitchen the grill witRead moreh the cooker didn't work(we left a note for the caretaker). Hide

I love the cottage and location but it is in need of some basic maintenance. Comments are below.

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.
