This family friendly Victorian cottage, set back from a country lane on the Wareham to Dorchester cycle route, offers a fantastic holiday for active families as well as those looking for a peaceful getaway.
The property is a semi-detached Victorian farm cottage uniquely situated on the edge of the Purbeck ranges, surrounded on three sides by garden and woodland. Sleeping up to 8 guests and set on the popular Wareham to Dorchester National Cycle Network route, it is perfect for a family or group who love being outdoors. Its proximity to a local shop (400 metres) and a pub (2.5 miles) ensures everything you need is on your doorstep, while the Jurassic coast is only 6 miles away.
Inside, the cottage is spacious and comfortable and has been tastefully decorated with slate floors, muted wood and stylish splashes of colour. The sitting room is an ideal spot for watching your favourite shows or listening to some music on the iPod dock while admiring the garden through the French doors. There’s room for the whole group to come together in the open-plan kitchen/diner, built with socialising in mind. Upstairs there are four good-sized bedrooms, one en-suite, as well a family bathroom. The cottage is set within two acres of landscaped gardens with wonderful views of the local Purbeck hills. The two sunny terrace areas are perfect for outside dining and there is plenty of space for family games, while a woodland area with swings and ropes will give kids, both big and small, hours of fun.
The cottage is within easy reach of popular Wareham (3 miles) where you can rent canoes to explore the River Frome or shop for local produce at the quayside market. The stunning area of Lulworth Cove (5.5 miles) is one of the most iconic places on Dorset’s Jurassic Coast, known for its beauty, natural rock formations and picturesque walks, while the ever-popular limestone arch Durdle Door (6 miles) is a must-see.
