Both bedrooms are complete with built in storage offering you plenty of space for your holiday wardrobe.

Set in over 2 acres of grounds and Bluebell Woodland, that’s lead down to a stream, there's so much space to enjoy here.

It was a lovely little cottage, perfect for a getaway for a couple. Really great location as it was only a short drive (10-15 minutes) from lots of lovely places to visit such as lulworth cove, durdle door and Corfe castle. The garden is lovely and there are multiple outdoor seating areas which was a really nice touch. The road next to the cottage Read morecan get a bit busy at peak travel times but you don't feel exposed as the garden is surrounded by trees you can just hear the road a little. Hide
