The perfect choice for a romantic break, this contemporary lodge is set into the hillside with far reaching views. Explore Durdle Door and Ringstead Bay before returning to the private hot tub.
Set in the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this hillside retreat is surrounded by nature and countryside. It’s part of a complex of properties, each with their own private space; and the setting makes it easy to venture further afield to West Dorset, even neighbouring Devon. It’s ideal for couples with a canine companion as there are abundant walks from the doorstep; explore country valleys, stroll pebbled shores, and sunbathe in sandy beach coves (1 mile). You’ll find a farm shop and pub within a mile of the property, and off-road parking for one car.
A flight of external steps, and a steep path, lead to this elegant studio. Step up to the veranda and head towards the inviting open-plan living space with relaxed contemporary tones. Rustle up tasty dishes in the well-equipped compact kitchen. After a day of trekking or bike riding, you’ll love the bubbly hot tub, and dining terrace where you can make wishes under the stars. Relax in the living area with TV favourites, or curl up with a book on cosy armchairs - those fantastic views can still be seen from the floor-to-ceiling windows. And enjoy a great night’s sleep in the dreamy double bed.
Stroll along the esplanade in Weymouth (5 miles) and enjoy the sandy beach, harbour, and traditional seaside fun. Over the causeway, discover the Isle of Portland (9 miles) where you can visit a lighthouse, this was the setting for sailing in the 2012 Olympics. Watch feathered friends swoop in to Abbotsbury Swannery and Subtropical Gardens (12 miles); discover literary links at the National Trust’s Hardy’s Cottage (8.5 miles) and Cloud Hills; and explore history at the Nothe Fort coastal defence museum (6.5 miles), and the Iron Age hillfort of Maiden Castle, the size of 50 football pitches (9.5 miles).
