This beautiful stone farmhouse invites you to experience a slice of countryside life within easy reach of the dramatic Dorset coast, famous for fossils, breathtaking views and mouthwatering seafood.

Tucked on the Devon and Dorset border is the charming village of Monkton Wyld; a rural haven bordered by unspoilt countryside and acres of ancient woodland. This beautiful holiday let has spectacular views across the valley and down to the sea, offering an array of exciting trails from your doorstep. Spend your days exploring near and far, venturing to Lyme Regis or Charmouth beach 5 miles away for a day of fossil-hunting rounded off with a fresh seafood supper.

This quintessential property is homely and comforting from the outset, greeting you with a stunning array of flowering shrubs, climbing ivy and a sweeping lawn. Kick off your boots in the quarry tiled hall, stepping up into the farmhouse-style kitchen for a well-deserved brew with homemade cake. You’ll have everything you need to prepare sumptuous suppers and light lunches, best enjoyed in the cosy dining room next door. Along from here you’ll find the lounge, made deliciously warm by the wood burner tucked in the inglenook fireplace. The first double bedroom is accessed through the lounge via a small set of steps. With French doors leading to a pretty terrace, it’s an irresistible nook for an evening G&T whilst catching glimpses of the sea. The shower room and first double bedroom are also downstairs, along with a quirky triple bedroom featuring three single beds that are ideal for younger guests. Upstairs you’ll discover two further double bedrooms and an inviting bathroom with shower over bath and underfloor heating - far too tempting on chilly nights.

The gardens surrounding the property are fantastic for lazy summer afternoons, relaxing whilst the children play on the sloping lawn. Take a stroll through terraced gardens and pretty orchards, pausing to pick fruit from the fruit cage; a perfect accompaniment to a traditional cream tea.

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

We loved it! Beautiful house in equally glorious surroundings. Extremely well-equipped; really did have everything you could possibly need. Kids loved it. Garden play equipment was well-used. Highly recommend it.

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.
