This beautiful country cottage is located within Winfrith Newburgh, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty; and provides a homely base for exploring what Dorset’s Jurassic Coast has to offer.

The village of Winfrith Newburgh is a quaint village, with a range of local amenities including a village shop which also serves as a Post Office, off-licence and provides a laundry service; and the local public house is also close-by being half a mile from the accommodation. On the doorstep of this property is the beautiful Lulworth Cove (4 miles away) which is a natural feature that dates back over 10,000 years. Also worth visiting is Durdle Door which is an iconic natural limestone arch on Dorset’s coastline. Travel a little bit further and you can explore Tyneham (10 miles away) which was taken over in World War II for D-Day preparations. The village was evacuated, and villagers said they would return, but never did. The schoolroom is a particular exhibit at this attraction which looks just as if the children have gone out to play! Weymouth is also close for day visiting at a short 11-mile drive.

Located on the village street, opposite the village shop, this property is the middle cottage in a row of three. Entering the cottage via the front porch, you step into the inviting sitting room with an open stone fireplace, exposed beams and beautiful bay window. Moving out of the sitting room and down the hall, you enter the L-shaped dining room, which is built into an extension of the property, with French doors leading to the terrace and garden. Then into an open-plan L-shaped kitchen with all the essentials: cooker, ice box fridge, microwave, washing machine and dishwasher. Downstairs, you also have a bathroom with a shower over the bath, WC and basin.

Through the low doors and up the short winding staircase you have two bedrooms which are cosily situated in the eaves of the cottage showing the detail of the beams. There is one double bedroom and also a twin bedroom.

Outside of the property, there is a small walled courtyard to the front; and to the rear, a terrace with BBQ and long lawned garden which is dotted with shrubs and trees. The garden backs onto rolling fields and this encourages a host of local wildlife to visit the garden including all types of bird and even some badgers. A rear gate at the end of the garden leads to adjacent parking for one small car in a garage. Alternative parking on the village lane is also available.


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

A thoroughly enjoyable week spent at a lovely cottage in a quiet village. With easy access to many local attractions, this was the perfect base for our holiday. The cottage was cosy, comfortable and had plenty of character.

This cottage really is home from home. Very well equipped and cozy too with the added bonus of a variety of birds to watch in the garden. Lots of extras like bedguards and highchairs for young children. A cosy real fire to keep you warm added to the 'cottage' feel.

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.
