Providing fantastic access to culture, country and coast, this family retreat provides the perfect base for guests of all ages to make the most of the surrounding area.
Only 5 miles from the coast and 4 miles from Dorchester, you can choose between sandy toes and town sights every day. A bustling, vibrant town, Dorchester is packed full of boutiques, eateries, galleries and museums. Treat yourself to a few mementoes to take home before stopping for something to eat. At Ringstead Bay, the beach beckons. Pack a few towels and prepare a picnic with all your favourite things before laying back in the sunshine or playing a game of waterside frisbee. Closer to home, the local pub is under 200 metres away from the property’s front door and invites diners to enjoy a wide range of home-cooked meals.
A thatched cottage in a row of four, the entrance to the property opens up onto the lane outside. Step in through the front door; immediately on your left is the property’s bathroom, complete with a bath with a shower overhead. Next, a small step down takes you into the open-plan lounge/diner. An inviting room with tiled floors, and ceilings with exposed wooden beams, the space offers a feast for the eye and is brought to life with quirky and decorative nooks and enclaves. A focal point in the room, a wood burner is set within a handsome fireplace and adds plenty of atmosphere on chillier, winter nights. Comfy sofas face a TV, so the whole family can gather around a film or documentary. When you are ready to have your evening meal, a family-sized dining table sits behind the sofas. Heading through a doorway from the lounge/diner, you’ll find a large kitchen. Fully-equipped with an oven and a hob, a fridge, a freezer, a microwave, a toaster and even a washing machine, all your needs are well catered for. Up the property’s steep, cottage-style chairs are three bedrooms. Offering the whole family a peaceful nights’ sleep, you’ll discover a double, a twin and single – just mind your head in the eaves.
To the rear of the cottage is the garden. Home to a courtyard with a BBQ and garden furniture, there is a lawn area accessed via two steps, surrounded by plants and shrubs. In the garden, you will also find the owners’ greenhouse and garden sheds. There is plenty of parking in the village.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
