Property code: DC167

This beautiful cottage is situated in a tranquil and peaceful spot near the Jurassic Coast, ideal for those wanting a relaxing getaway from the hustle and bustle of daily life.

This delightful former whaler’s cottage is situated adjacent to the owner’s home just half a mile from the shingle beach at Seatown. The single-storey accommodation has been beautifully restored and furnished with slate flooring, a wood burner, a glass roof and a luxurious roll-top bath. When you’re not admiring the wonderful rural views from your private terrace or curled up with a book in the summer house, take to the beach for a spot of fossil hunting, stroll along the South West Coast Path or grab a bite at the local pub.

A stunning kitchen/diner is a fantastic space for preparing and enjoying delicious meals all year round, with a glass vaulted ceiling, oak flooring, stylish units and French doors opening onto the patio. Cosy evenings in are best spent beside the roaring wood burner in the lounge next door, which is furnished with comfortable sofas and tasteful soft furnishings. Come rain or shine, the charming summer house makes a great escape from the bustle of everyday life, while the raised terrace to the rear affords spectacular rural views. There is parking for one car.

The small hilly village of Chideock is home to two pubs, perfect for refuelling after a long walk through the surrounding Dorset countryside. Just half a mile south lies the coastal hamlet of Seatown, popular among walkers who can follow the South West Coast Path to neighbouring Eype (2.5 miles) and Charmouth (4.5 miles). Popular West Bay is just 5 miles to the east with its iconic steep cliffs and golden shingle beach that stretches all the way to the Isle of Portland (25.5 miles), while the bustling market town of Bridport (3.5 miles) offers a good selection of shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs.
