This traditional Grade II listed cottage has period features throughout and makes an excellent family or group getaway, with a separate coach house boasting its own living quarters for extra privacy.

Facing Hawkchurch’s village war memorial, and with direct access to the 625-mile long Monarch’s Way footpath, this 500-year-old property is surrounded by peace and tranquility. Just 7 miles from the coastal town of Lyme Regis - famed for its fossil hunting and fun family days out - it’s ideally located for a family escape to enjoy both Devon and Dorset’s coast and country.

Enter the cottage through a stable door, leaving muddy boots and wiping mucky paws in the porch before stepping into the double aspect kitchen/dining room. Here you will find an impressive Aga, available for use in cooler months (October to April), as well as an additional oven and a dishwasher. Dine around the family-sized table beside the window seat, underneath the exposed beams. A wooden arch leads into the double aspect lounge with parquet floor, inglenook fireplace with open fire, original bread oven, and window seat where you can relax and enjoy the array of mod cons that will help you feel at home. Three steps lead into the study which has reduced height in the eaves, and there is also a bathroom on the ground floor with a shower over the bath and a WC. A rear hall has space for coats and boots and also has reduced height in the eaves. On the first floor you will find three bedrooms, all beamed with reduced height and made up of one double with an en-suite WC, plus two twins. The property also boasts a single-storey detached stone cottage situated to the rear of the parking area. Here there is a cosy lounge/dining room with a vaulted beamed ceiling, log burner, TV and fridge, as well as a double bedroom with iPod dock and a bathroom with a shower over the bath. This is also where you will find the utility room with drier.

A side gate leads to a split-level front garden with flowers and shrubs, while the rear garden has a large lawn area as well as a gravelled area and patio. There is ample off-road parking.

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

The best equipped rental we have ever had. Plenty of everything. Floors upstairs can be interesting after a glass of wine.

Typical listed building character cottage. Loads of quirky features as you would expect for a building that age. Few areas may need re plaster and painting etc but nothing major. Great place to second my sixtieth birthday. There are mice running around the roof though which you can hear at night. The annex was brilliant. All beds comfortable. lovedRead more the sloping floors with the beds chocked up to make them level. Hide

Wytch Green is a superbly appointed and comfortable cottage in a very relaxing setting. It offers a great base from which to explore the Devon and Dorset areas. Thoroughly recommended.

Quaint cottage - very good facilities. The Aga in the kitchen is a lovely feature and keeps this part of the house warm. Heating plus log firs were very good.

Very pleasant, a bit quirky, had to learn how to cook on an AGA!

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.
