Escape to a peaceful pocket of Dorset with this charming home-from-home that’s full of original features.
Situated in a row of cottages on a dead-end lane, this property is perfect for those in search of some peace and quiet. At the end of the road, a bridleway leads to the privately-owned pebble and shingle beach at Seatown, popular among fossil collectors, fishermen and families alike. Chideock itself is a small, hilly village with two popular pubs and surrounded by beautiful unspoilt countryside in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. A 4-mile drive east will bring you to West Bay, a bustling seaside resort also known as the golden gateway to the Jurassic Coast.
Leave coats, bags and boots in the useful entrance hall and continue through to the elegant dining room. With exposed beams, antique furniture and comfortable seating, this is a homely room for relaxing all day long. Curl up with a good book on the window seat or hunker down beside the roaring wood burner while you watch your favourite programme on the TV. Beyond, a traditional farmhouse-style kitchen features stone flooring, a Belfast sink, bespoke units and oak worktops and a door opening onto the garden. The kitchen/diner is equipped with everything you should need for preparing tasty family meals, including an oven, fridge with ice compartment and dishwasher. Upstairs are two well-presented bedrooms, one double with wrought-iron bed, original floorboards and TV and one twin with an original cottage window and reduced height in the eaves. The bedrooms share a bathroom with overhead shower.
Outside, a wonderful cottage garden has been beautifully planted with colourful shrubs, trees and flowers. There is a garden table and chairs for enjoying al fresco meals and drinks in the summer months. There is off-road parking for one car.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
