This characterful 18th-century cottage oozes charm, yet offers all the modern amenities for a fantastic stay. Ideally located for countryside lovers and beach goers wanting to explore Dorset.
Steeped in Hardy history and surrounded by places to explore, this quaint, thatched cottage is a wonderful destination close to the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site. Sleeping four guests across two bedrooms, with space for a pup to join you, spend days at Lulworth Cove (14 miles) in the glittering ocean and walk 1.5 miles from here to Durdle Door before cosying up by the wood burner to warm sandy toes and tails.
Brimming with country style and creature comforts, step inside this welcoming bolthole and head straight to the dining room to spy the dramatic well. Great for sociable meals and gathering with a map and a cup of tea, the dining table comfortably seats all guests. Rustle up delicious meals and keep your feet warm in the kitchen with underfloor heating. After meals, the secluded walled garden is perfect for tipples and warming mugs of coffee and has a handy back gate so you can return home and leave bikes and muddy boots outside. Throw a log on the wood burner and spend time cosied up on the sofas with your favourite programme on or a board game laid out for a lively afternoon. Boogie the night away to the Bluetooth sound system before resting your head in one of two first-floor bedrooms. Light and airy, these rooms create a calming space in which to drift off for a peaceful night’s sleep. Sharing the bathroom, freshen up in the shower over the bath or soak in the tub for a relaxing morning. Take care of both internal and external steps. There is roadside parking subject to availability.
From your door, head out on foot or take your bikes the local forest in Puddletown. Great for stick-chasing, hiking and biking, work up an appetite before visiting the local village pub for a hearty meal. A 16-mile trip will take you to the National Trust’s Corfe Castle where the beautiful remains stand high above the sea. Finish your trip with a dip in the tidal pool at Dancing Ledge (20 miles from home), or journey home via the gorgeous cove at Lulworth (14 miles).
