A gorgeous thatched cottage in Chideock surrounded by boundless bucolic beauty, this property provides the perfect base for groups of friends or families looking to share an unforgettable adventure.

Found in a country village, this property sits alongside a lane running directly down to Seatown beach. Less than 1 mile away, you can walk, cycle or drive down to the beach and leave your car in Seatown car park. Spend lazy afternoons by the shore, taking in views of the beautiful Golden Cap. Or, don your walking shoes and head up Langdon Hill, less than 1 mile away, and reward yourselves with jaw-dropping views. Upon your return to your home-from-home, sweet and savoury treats can be picked up the village bakery, less than 200 metres from your front door. Within 500 metres, you’ll find two pubs, both serving hot food and refreshing drinks.

Step indoors and into the hallway. From, here a door to your left takes you into the lounge/diner while, straight ahead along the corridor, a step up leads to the downstairs bathroom, stairs and kitchen. In the lounge/diner, the spacious room is home to a dining table and ample comfy seating. Dotted with original details, the room has a cosy feel and provides plenty of entertainment, with a TV, a radio and a selection of books. Light up the wood burner to warm up winter nights and gather the family around for a film or game of charades. From the lounge area, another door leads you into the kitchen. Equipped with a range cooker, a dishwasher, a fridge, a microwave, a kettle and more, the space is yours to cook up a culinary sensation. Up another small step from the kitchen, there is a conservatory with seating and access to the garden. Sit in here with a morning coffee or relax for a while with a book. While the downstairs bathroom is home to a walk-in shower and a heated towel rail, upstairs has another bathroom. Accessed via the curved staircase, the second bathroom has a heated towel rail and a roll-top bath where you can luxuriate and enjoy the garden views. Also upstairs are the property’s three bedrooms, including two doubles (one with an additional single bed) and another with two bunk beds. A fantastic traditional cottage as it is, the upstairs of the property has exposed beams and at least partially sloped ceilings in all rooms.

Outside, a landscaped, layered garden can be found at the back of the property. With patio furniture on the lowest level and some small steps leading up to a garden bench on the top level, the garden is a lovely spot to drink in the sunshine. It also comes equipped with a BBQ and lawn areas. On the opposite side of the lane to the cottage, there is dedicated parking available for up to two cars.

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

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.
