Ideal couple’s getaway in an attractive barn conversion on the owner’s non-working farm in the Somerset countryside, less than a half-an-hour drive from the stunning beaches of Dorset’s Jurassic Coast.

This property enjoys a fantastic location in South Somerset, close to the county’s border with Dorset. The area surrounding the cottage has much to see and do, whether guests fancy a quiet countryside break, or a busy holiday filled with activities. Crewkerne, just 2 miles down the road, is perfect for an afternoon browsing the shops and enjoying a coffee or of an evening having dinner in one of the dog-friendly pubs. The World Heritage Jurassic Coast is just fifteen miles south of the property, with Lyme Regis and Charmouth beaches both offering the opportunity to hunt for fossils. Or why not pay a visit to the vast sweeping beach at West Bay, otherwise known as Broadchurch? There are plenty of interesting towns to explore in the area, including Beaminster and Axminster, whilst more unusual attractions such as the Fleet Air Arm Museum, Pecorama, and the Seaton Tramway make for fun days out.

This single storey property makes a great place for a couple to enjoy a quiet and relaxing break. The main living space is a light-filled open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner which has huge bi-fold doors which allow guests to open up the space onto the patio. The deep sofa allows guests to sit back and enjoy the TV/DVD, whilst a dining table is the perfect space for enjoying romantic meals. The kitchen area, meanwhile, is equipped with an oven, hob, microwave, fridge/freezer and dishwasher. The bedroom, which is just off the living area, has a king-size bed, bedside tables, and plenty of storage space in the wardrobe. The en-suite shower room offers a shower and WC.

Outside, there is a patio garden to the front of the property, with garden furniture and a BBQ, making a great space to sit and enjoy the tranquil surroundings. Guests can securely store bikes by arrangement with the owner. There is ample off-road parking available next to the property.

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

A perfect base for our cycling holiday. We had rented all 3 cottages with friends so we could still go away together while observing COVID guidelines. Each cottage was clean, comfortable, warm and well equipped. The owners have thought of everything. We would definitely return.

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.

Although it's just three hours from London and the South East, Dorset feels like a world away from the hubbub of the city. This gem of a county offers the very best of rural England: magnificent coastal scenery, vast sandy beaches, rolling hills, charming villages, country pubs, stately homes and medieval castles.

Take time to explore the dramatic and diverse coastline. Stretching 95 miles from East Devon to Poole, the Jurassic Coast has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and is the only natural phenomenon in England to achieve this status. Here, visitors can uncover Earth's fascinating history whilst enjoying unspoilt views over superb beaches, many of which welcome canine companions too. From the iconic rural rock arch at Durdle Door to the endless sandy expanses of Studland, Dorset has it all.

Why not head to Lyme Regis, classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty? Like much of West Dorset, it has an old-world ambience and offers excellent fossil hunting opportunities. Or head east to discover the beauty of Lulworth and the vibrant seaside resort of Swanage.

Steeped in history and with a certain quintessential charm, Dorset's glorious countryside is peppered with small towns and villages which are well worth a visit. Many are graced with fine buildings, immortalised in the books of Thomas Hardy, a Dorset-born novelist and poet. For more energetic visitors, footpaths and cycleways reveal the county's hidden secrets with the coast always close at hand for those who love the water.
