Prepare to be amazed as you get close to this cottage. First impressions matter - and this cottage makes an unforgettable impression as you behold the iconic stone building upon arrival and enter to the main farmhouse courtyard under a unique thatched archway. Situated within walking distance to the sea and just 5 miles from the flagship colourful beach huts and sandy beaches at Weymouth, the property is undeniably an exceptional property.

The downstairs of the property boasts an L-shaped open-plan living and dining space where couples and families can put their feet up with a glass of red wine or tuck into a lovely home-cooked meal made in the contemporary kitchen. Partially exposed brickwork and exposed beams add to the property's appeal and contrast well with the spiralling steel and wood staircase that leads to two bedrooms and a bathroom.

Choose to use them or give them a miss and revel in the peace and charm of this one-of-a-kind property near the sea.

The spectacular interior is only rivalled by the exterior aspects of the cottage. The old farmyard courtyard leads to an open garage with enough room for two cars to be parked securely. Towards the rear of the property is a decking area that is kept private and intimate by a row of shrubs. Equipped with outdoor seating and a table, this space works as a place to enjoy some family time as the sunsets.

The cottage was furnished with good quality fittings, exceptionally clean and kept to a very high standard. We would recommend it and plan to return.

Our second visit to Laurel Cottage and it was as good as we remembered from the first. Lots of lovely walks from the cottage, so no need to use the car every day.

Location

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.
