The kitchen/dining room is equipped with a double oven and hob, dishwasher, microwave, fridge, freezer and washing machine, and two sets of French doors which lead onto the decked area outside. The dryer is housed in the garage. Exploring the ground floor further, there’s both a children’s playroom with games and toys, and a games room with table tennis and TV, the latter with French doors to the terrace. There is also a ground-floor WC which is reached via three steps and a utility room. The first floor can be accessed from two different staircases. The open-tread staircase from the games room leads up to a beamed double room with a low feature window and low eaves.

Lowgill is the perfect retreat for a family. We all really appreciated the feeling that Lowgill was a much-loved family home and it fitted really well for our extended family of grown-children, their 92-year-old grandmother and a dog. The kitchen was equipped well for Christmas cooking and the house was designed for rural living, with a useful utilRead moreity and boot room for muddy stuff after walking. The fire was a joy - what a great design! We would recommend Lowgill very highly and look forward to returning again in the future. Hide

Wonderful location. The pub and the music are fantastic. Cottage is immense! Ideally the bathrooms need updating - to create at least one en-suite. Very well-equipped.

We visited this cottage as a group of 4 adults, 4 children and 1 dog. The cottage was perfect! Very spacious, very clean and tidy and excellently equipped with everything we needed for a perfect New Year break.

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.
