Enjoying a tranquil location in the Dorset countryside, this beautiful 18th-century mid-row stone cottage has been lovingly updated to provide cosy and inviting family accommodation in idyllic surroundings.

Located on a no-through lane leading to the inland coast path and the famous Osmington White Horse on the South Dorset Downs, this cottage is perfect for exploring the Dorset countryside and the stunning Jurassic Coast. Heading east along the coast you can explore Ringstead Bay (3.5 miles) and Lulworth Cove (11 miles), and encounter the natural arch of Durdle Door (10 miles). To the west is the popular seaside town of Weymouth (5 miles) with its beautiful crescent bay, long sandy beaches and popular attractions including Sandworld and the Jurassic Skyline. Heading inland you can visit Monkey World (10.5 miles), the Tank Museum (11 miles) or some of the places associated with Thomas Hardy including his birthplace in Higher Bockhampton (9.5 miles) and his home in Dorchester (8 miles).

Three stone steps lead up into this delightful cottage. On entering, you will find the welcoming lounge which retains several original features including a beamed ceiling, pine floorboards and a wood burner set in a stone inglenook. With a Smart TV/DVD, Bose Bluetooth and an iPod dock, this is a lovely space to relax in. There’s also a charming dining room with French doors to the garden and an attractive kitchen equipped with an oven, microwave, washing machine, fridge and freezer. The ground floor also features a wet room with WC. Going up the steep cottage-style stairs you will find three cosy bedrooms on the first floor, all with sloping ceilings and reduced head height at the eaves. A step down leads into the double room, and there’s also a twin room and a single room, both with a feature chimney breast. The bathroom is complete with a shower over the bath and a WC. This room also has a low ceiling.

Stepping outside you can sit back in the back garden which has a paved path, outdoor furniture, a terrace and flowerbeds, and backs onto a wild, wooded hillside. Parking is available on the village lane.

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.
