This fantastic, detached 17th century farmhouse is set in a beautiful rural setting in Dorset, yet only a short drive to the coast, making it a perfect holiday retreat for all the family.

This charming property, situated just 10 miles from Bridport, is perfect for large families or groups of friends. Sleeping eight across four welcoming bedrooms, this detached old farmhouse is an opportunity to explore both Dorset and Devon’s beautiful coastlines. Picturesque seaside town Charmouth is just 3.5 miles away, while pretty Sidmouth in Devon is only a 17.5-mile drive. And when you’re ready to come home, a cosy lounge awaits you to relax in, where you can curl up in front of the wood burner with a good book.

The property, which is situated down a private drive, is spacious and comfortable. A stunning flagstone hallway leads you off to the lounge and dining room, accessed via steps up and down; the dining room has a traditional feel with a delightful inglenook fireplace and a large dining table made from rich wood. A twin room with seating area on the ground floor is ideal for kids who want their own space; upstairs, three bedrooms have lovely views over the garden. Wake up surrounded by soft, country-style decor and head down to the garden, sipping your morning coffee on the patio while the children play on the climbing frame.

Head out to Lyme Regis (4 miles) for the day, wandering around the famous Cobb Harbour and the Lyme Regis Museum or the Dinosaurland Fossil Museum. There are plenty of pubs, shops and cafes to keep the entire family occupied all day. Further afield, the Beer Heights Light Railway (11.5 miles) takes you on a mile-long trip with views over Lyme Bay to the distant Portland Bill. Take a peaceful stroll around Forde Abbey House or Burrow Farm Gardens (7 miles), both of which have pretty grounds and plenty of features to explore.

This attractive farmhouse is in a pleasant location with an a lovely enclosed garden where only a faint hum of the nearby A35 can be heard, with this road giving easy access to the beautiful Dorset coast. It is a traditional farmhouse with high ceilings making it feel very spacious although a lot of levels to navigate with some uneven steps and lowRead more doors which might be problematic for someone with limited mobility. It is very well maintained and looked after!SELECTED!. !ENDOFSELECTED! Hide
