A charming and spacious apartment set in tranquil surroundings, in the rolling countryside of rural Dorset and close to the border of Somerset it’s ideally situated for touring.
Enjoying a peaceful setting in a beautiful hamlet, this property sleeps four and is ideally placed for exploring West Dorset and the Jurassic Coast. Wake up to the sounds of the countryside springing to life all around you and stroll through the grounds, breakfasting in your private garden and planning your day’s adventures. Will you tackle the rugged cliffs and sandy beaches in pursuit of fossils, or perhaps you would prefer to investigate the pastures and meadows surrounding the property?
Approaching the first-floor apartment, you’ll be immediately struck by its rustic charm thanks to the wooden exterior and pretty lawned garden. A wild meadow runs alongside, and studded within it is a stone circle and shared BBQ area backing onto ancient woodland. Up a set of external steps and inside, the apartment is deceptively spacious with vaulted ceilings and contemporary decor. The open-plan lounge is home to cosy sofas for relaxed TV viewing, and there is ample space for cooking and eating in the kitchen and dining areas. Full-bellied and weary, treat yourself to an invigorating shower before choosing one of two pretty bedrooms, both crisply dressed for a restful night’s sleep.
A 14-mile drive will bring you to the shingle shores of Charmouth, a pleasant beach that’s ripe for fossil hunting and a splash in the sea. Take a walk along the cliffs and refuel with a hot coffee from the cafe, or venture into the village to browse the pretty shops. Lyme Regis 14.5 miles away is a treasure trove of independent shops, art galleries, eateries and museums, and the promenade is lined with bars and bistros to tempt every palate. Young palaeontologists will especially appreciate the excellent dinosaur museum, and there is a popular fossil shop close to the seafront where you can select some impressive souvenirs.
