A quirky house converted from a former dairy, located a stones’ throw from the town centre and all the amenities Dorchester has to offer, it’s the perfect spot for a fun filled holiday.

Set within the county town of Dorchester, this grade II listed house has been sympathetically converted from a former dairy. Offering individual character and an exclusive gated setting, this spacious property is ideal for visiting both the coast and countryside. The heart of the town is within walking distance and offers a variety of shops, as well as museums and a cinema. Choose from the wide variety of food available in the many pavement cafes and restaurants or walk along the nearby riverside. The Purbeck Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is just a short drive away. Or perhaps discover Dorset's amazing Jurassic Coast and visit Weymouth with its seafront, beaches, Sea Life Centre and harbour.

Heading into the terraced property you are met by an inviting open-plan lounge/diner, which is the ideal place to relax after a day spent exploring as it has a TV and DVD. Further on from here is the well-equipped kitchen, which has an electric oven and hob, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer. Heading back into the lounge area you will find the stair case rising to the first floor, which gives access to a king-size bedroom with pitched ceiling and en-suite shower room with WC. A further twin bedroom is opposite, which has a connecting door to an adjacent king-size bedroom, which also has its own entrance door. A contemporary bathroom leads off from the landing and has a shower over bath and WC.

Venturing outside from the front door you will find a bench overlooking the shared courtyard, offering a sunny spot to relax in this bustling market town, it’s the perfect place to enjoy a drink outdoors. There is off-road parking for two cars available to the front of the property with additional roadside parking subject to availability.

Great, well equipped and clean property, modern yet full of character. Comfortable beds & fast wifi. The two bathrooms were great. Quite neighbourhood, with private parking. Super central location. Dorchester is a perfect base for touring around Dorset coast and the town is a great market town with good selection of shops and restaurants.

A lovely cosy cottage in a private gated area. Lovely furnishings and comfortable. Easy to park outside the property and within walking distance of the town centre. A good base for exploring the surrounding area. Friendly neighbours.

We had a fantastic week in this lovely, clean and well equipped cottage. Great location and a short walk from the Dorchester high street, only 7 miles from the south coast. Local pub, The Bulls Head, was also dog friendly.

Lovely cottage in a lovely location. However desperately short on cutlery and crockery. Cooker broken so would recommend kitchen make over / update.
