This charming 18th century Grade II listed thatched cob cottage, nestled in the peaceful hamlet of Broadmayne, is full of character and traditional touches. Conveniently situated on a minor road leading out of the village, this two-bedroom listed property is ideal for couples or small families in search of a relaxing break. Neighbouring fields offer perfect opportunities for keen walkers to explore the surrounding countryside and, with the local shop, post office and pub 500 metres away, it’s the perfect base for your holiday.
Enter through the stable door to discover a small 50s-style retro kitchen, complete with Belfast sink. Two steps lead down into the slate-floored dining room with an open fire, perfect for warming up on those chillier evenings. Three steps take you up to the bright and welcoming lounge where you and your four-legged friends can curl up on the built-in sofa and make use of the Smart TV and iPod dock. The bathroom, with a shower, is also on this floor. Upstairs, via a steep original oak staircase with rope handle leads, you’ll find two inviting bedrooms – a double, and a single. Adjoining the lounge is a cosy slate-floored conservatory, with French doors leading out onto the beautifully-maintained garden. With a large lawn, borders and a gravelled terrace, this is the perfect spot for a little al fresco dining as the sun sets on a wonderful day. There’s also off-road parking for one car.
Explore the stunning Jurassic coastline, a World Heritage Site, just 4 miles from your door, with the delightful Durdle Door and Ringstead Bay only a few miles away. Dorset’s county town of Dorchester is a short (4-mile) drive away and well worth a visit, boasting some excellent places to eat and some of the area’s leading museums.
