Spacious cottage with wonderful views over the West Dorset countyside. A private garden and good road links make this the ideal place for a relaxed break exploring this verdant landscape.

This spacious Victorian cottage is attached to the owners home, yet offers a good degree of seclusion. Set within a working farm, it is the perfect spot for walkers and nature lovers alike. The historic town of Dorchester is an short drive away and offers a great selection of shops, pubs and attractions. Perhaps while away take some time with a visit to the county museum, or try out one of the many eateries. The cottage is the ideal base for those that want to explore West Dorset and beyond, with an abundance of pretty towns and villages all being accessible from here, as well as the stunning Jurassic coast where you can fossil hunt or just relax on the beach.

From the parking area a sliding door brings you into the cottage. On entering the property, you are met by a spacious sun room which doubles up as a dining room and leads into a light and airy kitchen. The kitchen is well-equipped with an electric oven and hob, fridge/freezer and microwave. Adjacent to here is the bathroom, with shower over bath and WC. Opposite is the inviting lounge which has a Smart TV and DVD, making it the perfect place to unwind after a day spent exploring. Just next door is a spacious second dining room overlooking the fields. Rising from an inner hallway is the staircase, which gives access to a double bedroom with stunning views and a twin bedroom also overlooking the pastureland surrounding the cottage.

Heading outside you will find an enclosed lawn with views, garden furniture and a BBQ. Located a short hop from the kitchen, it’s the perfect spot for enjoying a meal outdoors. Off-road parking for two cars can be found adjacent to the property.

We loved our stay here, couldn't fault anything. Plenty of space, all equipment worked well and as described. Spotless , perfect location, perhaps a bit more info in the welcome pack about the local area, shops, pubs etc.

Beautiful location and very clean but quirky layout. Downstairs toilet and steep stairs are a hazard at night. Kitchen is spacious but lacks basic equipment.

Reviewed by Michael, 17th August 2018

The cottage is set amongst the most beautiful scenery and normally quiet except for occasional selfish drivers going too fast up and down the lane. It is very well set out with plenty of space to spread out,two good sized bedrooms upstairs and downstairs bathroom, it was immaculately clean with a new bathroom suite and large, well appointed KitchenRead more ,separate breakfast room and shingle drive.We loved it and would have stayed there for a second week if washing machine had been installed.

A very nice spacious cottage to holiday in. It was about a 15 -20 minute drive to the nearest beaches. Surrounding countryside to the cottage was beautiful.

Reviewed by Peter, 22nd June 2018

Spacious, well-equipped accommodation just off the A35 (not in or near West Bay as described on the site). Lovely to eat outside watching the cows move up and down their field.

Reviewed by Lisa, 1st June 2018

Excellent place to stay. Beautiful location and really well equipped cottage. If I'm ever back in the area I would book to stay again.

Reviewed by Rachel, 25th May 2018

Excellent location between Dorchester and Bridport, great for the Jurassic coast or a day trip to Weymouth. Quirky layout but clean and airy with fantastic views across farm and surrounding countryside. Reasonably equipped if you have enough clothes and arent too messy!

Reviewed by Usman, 4th May 2018

The cottage is wonderfully spacious, tastefully decorated and located ideally for trips to the beach. It is around 15 mins by car to the West Bay beach, which is perfect for families.
