This large cottage in a quiet Dorset village is an ideal place for families to spend quality time together and enjoy discovering the many delights that the countyside has to offer.

In the picturesque village of Uploders, this semi-detached, stone cottage blends seamlessly into its surroundings. Situated on a quiet village lane, you will be able to enjoy the tranquillity from the large, terraced garden whilst appreciating the far-reaching views of the Dorset countryside. There is a village pub within 100 metres, a shop within 2 miles and you are only 1.5 miles from the A35, which provides easy access to the rest of Dorset. Go south for the World Heritage Jurassic Coast, west to find the popular seaside town of Lyme Regis (13 miles), and east for the unique Chesil Beach (18 miles) and the seaside town of Weymouth (21 miles).

Stepping through the attractive stable-style door, you will find yourself in a good-sized hallway. Leading off from here, is the L-shaped open-plan lounge/kitchen/dining area. The modest kitchen has everything you’ll need to create a meal for everyone and there is plenty of seating for those special, family meals. Moving around to the lounge area, it is split into two, providing a snug area for people who want a quiet moment with a book or crossword, but don’t want to miss out on the action. The main lounge area has a wood burner for those cosy, cold evenings. And for those hot, summer days, French doors lead out to the courtyard. The décor is an eclectic mix of traditional furniture and modern touches, creating a welcoming, homely feel. The first floor of the cottage is very spacious with four good-sized bedrooms (two with an en-suites) and the family bathroom. Like downstairs, there is a variety of traditional furniture throughout which creates an interesting, homely feel. All bedrooms have lovely views of the garden or the village.

To the rear of the property is a large, terraced garden with a courtyard, split-level lawns and a 7 seater hot tub available on request. (Please note this needs to be requested at the point of booking) French doors lead out from the living area to a sunny courtyard with furniture making it a perfect place for al fresco family meals. The different levels of the garden are accessed by flights of steps, which may not be suitable for young children. At the top of the garden, there is a further dining area which makes the most of the breathtaking views.

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

Location

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.

Dorset, a location of enduring popularity is a small rural gem of a county encompassing all of the best parts of rural England: rolling green hills, woodland and hedgerows abundant with flora and fauna running down to the sea yet situated just 3 hours from London and the South East.

The whole coastline from Exmouth to Poole has been declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO. Known as the Jurassic Coast, it is the only natural phenomenon in England to achieve this status and offers unspoilt views with dramatic cliff-top walks alongside beautiful, safe, sandy beaches which often welcome your four-legged friends too. From the dramatic natural rock arch at Durdle Door to the endless sandy expanses of Studland; Dorset has it all.

This South West county is also a treasure trove of secrets waiting to be discovered. Having grown out of the landscape out of the centuries, many of Dorset’s small rural towns expose history at every turn to inform and delight guests, whilst for the more energetic, footpaths and cycle-ways open up to reveal Dorset’s hidden secrets and the coast is always close at hand for those who love the water.

Why not head to Lyme Regis – classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, much like most of West Dorset to uncover an old-world ambience and excellent fossil hunting or discover the drama of Lulworth with the iconic Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove.

Dorset’s towns and villages ooze quintessential charm and are graced by fine buildings which have often been immortalised in Thomas Hardy’s books, including Dorchester – his birthplace. Wherever you choose to stay, you are never far from the fascinating Jurassic Coast and World Heritage Coastal Path.
