Property code: DC153

A thatched cottage with contemporary interiors, this home from home is just right for those looking to indulge in a solo break or romantic getaway.

This property is a charming one-bedroom thatched cottage mixing traditional styles with the contemporary in the pretty village of Wool. This cosy and characterful cottage is tastefully presented with a duck stream and wide grass verges at the front, making this a quintessential English holiday home. Its close proximity to the local pub (160 metres) and the coast (5 miles) make it an enviable location for two to enjoy a relaxing holiday.

Enter the cottage through the shared hall and into the open-plan living area through a private door; warm tones and exposed beams welcome you to sink back into the sofas in front of the electric flame fire or take a peek at the original bread oven. Step up into the spacious kitchen that has everything you need to cook up a storm, plus two large windows that fill the room with light. Head up the stairs from the living area to the bathroom, where you’ll find a WC and shower over the bath for a peaceful soak or just a quick rinse at the end of a busy day, while views of the duck stream from the low window in the double bedroom make it a cosy and tranquil place to rest. Please note, there is reduced head height in the eaves. Outside, the shared front garden has a seating area, ideal for an al fresco drink, while the private rear garden has a pretty water feature surrounded by trees and flowers.

Make sure you visit Lulworth Cove (5 miles) and Durdle Door (5.5 miles) during your stay, for breathtaking views and blue waters. If you’d prefer a walk inland, stroll the grounds of Lulworth Castle (5 miles) or Athelhampton House and Gardens (10 miles). You’re also just 6 miles from the riverside town of Wareham, where there are plenty of shops and restaurants and a 1930s cinema.

Although the cottage is joined to the owners, by the hallway, Mick and Jill, never intrude, just said to us on arrival to knock on their door if any help was needed. A lovely bakery, Spar shop/post office nearby to cottage.

This is a lovely home from home cottage. The owners are next door so any help or recommendations are readily available without being in your face. The village of Wool is really lovely and for a relaxing walking holiday with your dog it is ideal.

We did not find the settee and armchair very comfortable, but everything else was fine. Also, the location is excellent to visit places of interest without too much travelling. Very friendly locals and Mick was a mine of information.

Reviewed by Mr M Gray 31st August 2018

The cottage was ideally located and provided us with everything that we required for our short 3 day stay. The heavy snow falls that we encountered whilst there made it even more picturesque. The cottage was very clean and very comfortable and provided all the amenities that we required. Purely as an observation there are 3 items that need to be atRead moretended to: 1) The shower has a very poor water flow, possibly requires the shower head to be descaled or replaced. 2) Bread knife in the kitchen drawer needs to be replaced as it is extremely blunt. 3) The pillows on the bed are extremely uncomfortable, I'm sure the majority of guests would prefer a softer pillow.

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.
