A spacious stone cottage offering a peaceful retreat to the coast with distant sea glimpses. Well situated to explore the endless attractions and seaside towns of the beautiful southern coast.

Make the most of the stunning coastline of Dorset whilst being spoilt for choice when it comes to all manner of outdoor pursuits and local attractions. Step outside your door to enjoy a leisurely stroll around the slow-paced village and visit the welcoming pub or stock up on supplies from the shop. The seaside town of Swanage, home to Old Harry Rocks, a pretty pier and a railway line to Purbeck, is just 1.5 miles from the cottage. 4 miles away you will find Studland Bay; a glorious slice of natural coastline made up of sandy beaches and picturesque heathland or you can venture 6.5 miles inland to visit the Hartland Moor National Nature Reserve.

Located within the wing of the owner’s home and all on one level, enter through a private porch area; perfect for storing coats and boots. Step through the French doors leading into the lounge and dining area. Cosy up in this space of an evening as you power up the electric flame-effect fire that is sure to warm you up after a day along the coast. The traditional kitchen is home to all the essentials you’ll need for home cooking before sitting down in the spacious dining area to appreciate it. The bright and airy bedroom is home to a double bed offering a restful night’s sleep and a basin. The bathroom next door boasts a walk-in shower so you can refresh after a day outdoors.

Step outside to enjoy a south facing unenclosed space complete with seating area and distant sea glimpses to the Isle of Wight. Whether you start your morning with a coffee as you appreciate the quiet or enjoy a spot of al fresco lunch, it’s a wonderful space to be enjoyed at any time of day. There is ample shared parking with the cottage’s owner.

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.
