  • Peaceful village setting close to the South West Coast Path
  • Ideally placed for visiting Durdle Door, Lulworth Cove and Ringstead Bay
  • Enclosed garden and attractive, contemporary styling throughout
Property code: 78349

Contemporary single storey property set within a pretty rural village. Ideally placed for trips to the beach, touring the Dorset countryside or long walks along the South West Coast Path

A fantastic abode from which to explore, hop on the South West Coast Path (2 miles), swim in the sea at Lulworth Cove (4.5 miles) or travel 9 miles to the county town of Dorchester for a food and film night. Sleeping five guests over three bedrooms, bring your pup along too and enjoy sandy, adventurous days and relaxing nights in the bright living space, perfect for sociable evenings with family and friends.

Wander the pathway (shared with neighbouring properties) and head inside to unpack your provisions and settle in. Forming the heart of the home, and a welcoming hub in which to spend all your time, the living space is compromised of the kitchen, lounge and dining areas. Flooded with natural light from the bi-fold doors and skylight, and decorated in fresh, coastal tones, the kitchen is a tranquil space in which to cook up a storm, relax with a mug of tea and pour over a map to plan the day’s adventures. Plate up either at the long dining table with garden views or fire up the BBQ and dine alfresco for a sundowner evening. For chilly nights and a post-adventure relax, turn on the wood burner effect electric fire and snuggle on the sofa or take a seat on the chair and delve into a book or a DVD. Two doubles and a single bedroom await weary heads and are beautifully light, tranquil spaces in which to drift off and wake up. Sharing the family bathroom, enjoy a soak in the tub or freshen up in the shower over the bath before heading out. There is off-road parking for one car.

Pack your swimmers, grab the dog a bone and head 4.5 miles to the iconic beach at Lulworth Cove. From here walk 1.5 miles to Durdle Door and marvel at the magnificent arch from the clifftop. Take a night off from the kitchen and treat yourselves to a meal out and a film night in Dorchester, the county town (9 miles), where a handful of eateries and pair of cinemas can be found.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

  • 3 Bedrooms – 2 doubles and 1 single
  • 1 Bathroom with shower over bath and WC
  • Electric oven and induction hob, microwave, washing machine, dishwasher and fridge/freezer

We have just returned from a week at The Hollies with our 4 year old. It was the perfect base to explore all Dorset has to offer and the house was a comfortable home from home with plenty of room for our little one.

Good location for exploring the area, extremely quiet. Very clean, well maintained and nicely furnished property. Enclosed garden but not dog proof as ours got through the gaps under the hedge at the end of the garden into the neighbouring propertys garden.

Superb cottage with great facilities in a sleepy quiet village, but close to Durdle Door and other Dorset attractions. We had a fantastic weekend break here and would recommend it highly.

The Hollies has been beautifully refurbished to a very high standard including a stunning kitchen extension. Everything we needed was there down to the smallest detail. It is in a beautiful village too from which you can walk to the coast in about 40 minutes. There is a village shop just over a mile away which has all the basics you need.

Location

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.
