  • Delightful thatched cottage, located in the quaint village of Wool
  • Spacious retreat with lots of room to spread out, and a garden overlooking stream

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.

We had a wonderful holiday despite the fuel shortage. We Managed to get about using buses and trains. Station is very close by. It is a lovely cottage and very well equipped. There are very useful shops nearby. We particularly enjoyed buying fresh bread from the bakers. It was our first visit to Dorset and we will definitely be coming back.

A really beautiful little cottage in the prettiest part of Wool. The stream with ducks, thatched roofs and pink roses around the door make it an idyllic place to stay!

The cottage was in an ideal location for visiting the surrounding area with a station and bus stop up the road meaning no car was needed. The pub a short walk away served good food and there was a bakers and a Spar shop very nearby. We would definitely stay there again if we were going to Dorset.

Above comments apply and in particular we were not advised of the change in the circumstances at the cottage compared with the advertised holiday accommodation. We had a lovely holiday despite these comments but would not recommend this cottage unless above comments are corrected.

Cottage situated in good area. Clean and tidy on arrival. Needs a bit of an update re furniture wise but on the whole enjoyed our second stay and this cottage and perhaps would stay here again. The rear garden has had a makeover which is very nice.

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.
