A welcoming rural retreat ideally sized for families or groups of friends, with unfettered access to rolling green countryside and the West Dorset Heritage Coast.

A true country gem, this property is less than 1 mile from the Fleet Lagoon and enjoys numerous country walks right from its doorstep. Take your pick of inland routes or amble along the beautiful Chesil Beach. Only 5.5 miles from Weymouth, you can visit the town’s many beaches before treating yourself to a cup of tea or a bite to eat. For a family day out, head to Abbotsbury Subtropical Gardens, 4.5 miles away, which dates back to 1765. Closer to home, the local pub is only 300 metres away and serves up tasty, locally-sourced food.

A charming semi-detached cottage, this property’s ground floor is made up of spacious, comfortable living areas. You can relax in the lounge/diner; with two comfortable sofas facing a wood burner in a handsome stone fireplace, and a TV, cosy winter evenings are perfectly catered for. A large family-sized dining table lends a sense of occasion to meals. Pore over the collection of books on offer and turn on the Hi-Fi for a lovely soundtrack to your dream holiday. Accessed via the entrance hall, the property’s kitchen is a real family space and is decorated in warm, farmhouse-style themes. With a solid fuel fire adding to the ambience in winter, the kitchen is also kitted out with an oven, an electric hob, a fridge, a freezer, a dishwasher, a toaster and plenty of pots and pans. For extra choice of where to eat, another smaller dining table sits next to the windows on the far side of the room, basking in natural light. Also accessed via the hallway, a downstairs bathroom accommodates a walk-in shower and a washing machine. Upstairs, three bedrooms offer a cosy night’s sleep for all and comprise 1 double, 1 4ft double and a twin. As well as the downstairs bathroom, there is another bathroom upstairs; this one houses a bath and affords beautiful views over the countryside beyond.

Outside, there is a small stone terrace to the rear of the property with a lawn and a BBQ, with sprawling fields unravelling beyond.

Rose Mallow was a delightful cottage and suited our needs perfectly. We were four adults and two children and we all really enjoyed our stay. Thank you.

The cottage although nice was dated and could do with some money spending on it. The shower had nowhere to put soap shower gel etc and was in a room with the washing machine and a Belfast sink, no toilet and had no towel rail. The bathroom had no towel rail. There were no wardrobes in two of the bedrooms. The master bedroom only a double with a douRead moreble quilt. The towels provided were threadbare I had to ask for new ones, which were changed immediately. The French doors were extremely difficult to close and lock to the point that they werent used as worried we would not be able to shut them again. The BBQ was small ideal for two but no good for six! Location was excellent, easy walk to Fleet Lagoon and surrounding areas, nice pub 5 minute walk away. Hide

Location

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.
