A former stables located within tranquil grounds, this ideal property for couples has history and character aplenty with all of today's modern comforts thrown in.

This property is a delightful former stable with a light and airy interior on the edge of the village of Winfrith Newburgh. Situated within the owner’s grounds, you have complete privacy and can take in the pretty long avenue of Lime Trees from the seating area on the patio. You’re in an enviable location for a couples’ retreat with the coast 4 miles away and the local pub just 1 mile away.

Enter the cottage through French doors from the terrace into the spacious open-plan living area, where warm tones welcome you to sit back in front of the TV or look out across the grounds. Fix yourself a snack in the kitchen area where you’ll find everything you need and enjoy it sitting at the table that’s perfect for two. The bathroom has pretty neutral tiles in the shower and over the sink, giving it a rustic feel. Upstairs, the king-sized bedroom has plenty of light and stunning wooden beams that remind you of this property’s former use; mind your head on the eaves. Snuggle up with a film on the TV/DVD in the evening after a busy day. Outside, there are wildflowers and a lawn to each side of the driveway, and climbing plants, flowerbeds and herbs on the patio make it a peaceful spot to watch the sun go down on the wooden bench.

Coastal and countryside walks are all available from this cottage; walk the South West Coast Path from Durdle Door (3 miles) to Lulworth Cove (4 miles) or even further for breathtaking views and blue seas. Or take the ‘Scratchy Bottom’ route to see vast countryside views and a glimpse of Portland. For more hustle and bustle, Dorchester is only 10 miles away and boasts plenty of shops and restaurants.

Beautiful location with plenty to see and do in the area. Cottage has everything you could need although the shower doesn't have great water pressure and it's very dark due to shading from the trees. Very quiet and peaceful, the only noise coming from an owl. Disappointed the garden isnt fenced so we couldnt let our dog out as she likes to run off Read moreand explore. Owners were on holiday so we didn't meet them, only their gorgeous dog and house sitters who were great! Lovely roast at the Red lion. Hide
