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

The Farmhouse is a lovely home from home in which to spend a holiday. It is in an excellent position, close to the main road accessing the Jurassic Coast, but still feeling away-from-it-all. All the rooms are very comfortable and spacious, and the garden is secluded and private if you are lucky enough to be able to spend some time in there.

Monkton Wylde farmhouse is in an idyllic quiet location, yet not far from the nearest village and from Lyme Regis. There are walks right from the doorstep. All rooms are light and spacious, and there is even a utility area near the front door for muddy boots and equipment cleaning.

Location

Map
Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

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.
