A colourful family home ideal for groups of friends or families, providing direct access to an abundance of country and coastal walks as well as nearby amenities.

Located in the idyllic Bothenhampton village above West Bay, this property is perfectly suited to nature-lovers and sports enthusiasts. With access to countless walks, you can wander the half mile to the beach and stroll along the sand or choose an inland route for country charm. As well as a number of natural gems, Bothenhampton is also home to shops, supermarkets and eateries, so you can find the right balance. Never far from a cup of tea or homecooked meal, you can start and end your day with a tasty treat for the tongue and tum. For unmissable views, a trip to Golden Cap (only 5 miles away) should definitely be on your list.

Step into the light, bright hall, decorated with characterful details and furnishings, and start your holiday. On the ground floor, the property has a number of rooms waiting for you to explore. One of the first rooms you will come to is a small snug area to the right of the hall. Furnished with a sumptuous sofa and complete with a bookcase packed with good reads, this room offers a quiet, tranquil space to curl up with a book and relax for a while. On the opposite side of the hall, the property also has a large lounge. Here, plenty of armchairs and cosy seats invite you to take the weight off for a while, whilst a TV and coal-effect gas fire add to the ambience. Also on the ground floor is a generously-sized kitchen/diner. With kitchen facilities at one end, including a range oven with 5 hob, fridge and freezer, and a dining area at the other, it is lovely family space. For extra convenience, a washing machine and dishwasher have also been installed, as well as plenty of helpful appliances and utensils. As well as a downstairs WC, upstairs has three comfortable bedrooms each with its own en-suite. Featuring a double with en-suite shower bathroom, a double with en-suite bath with shower overhead, and a twin (that can be made into a double) with en-suite bath with shower overhead, the whole clan can enjoy a taste of luxury.

Outside, a spacious suntrap garden enjoys countryside views and is the ideal summer sanctuary. With two steps leading down from the patio, you can spread out on the lawn or play a game of catch with the kids. When tummies start to rumble, why not fire up the BBQ?

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.
