Completed in 2016, this spectacular rural retreat is perfect for couples in search of a stylish getaway in a peaceful setting.

Enjoying a secluded setting on a quiet, narrow country lane, this property offers wonderful rural walks from the doorstep. Only a mile and a half away lies The World Heritage site of Lyme Regis, with its bustling harbour, historic Cobb and breath-taking Jurassic Coast for bracing beach and cliff-top strolls. In Lyme Regis you will also discover a range of independent shops, stylish cafes, pubs and restaurants, perfect for stocking up on supplies and dining out. Ideally situated for walkers and fossil hunters, with many local attractions to visit including the Marine Theatre, Marine Aquarium, the award winning Lyme Regis Brewery, River Cottage HQ and Canteen. Other attractions include Seaton Tramway, Sidmouth, Chesil Beach and Abbotsbury Swannery, or perhaps book yourself on a local mackerel fishing trip.

Inside, the studio-style accommodation has been beautifully designed with sleek, minimalist decor of wooden flooring, clean white walls and large full-length windows to make the most of those stunning views. In the contemporary kitchen area you will find an electric oven and induction hob, microwave, fridge with ice compartment, espresso machine and dishwasher. Enjoy leisurely meals around the dining table nearby while listening to your favourite music through the Sonos speaker before taking to the stylish lounge area beyond. At the end of a long day, cosy up beside the wood burner and make the most of the Smart TV which features complimentary access to Amazon Prime and Netflix. The Scandinavian-inspired sleeping area features a king-size bed and a contemporary shower room next door with a large shower and WC.

Step outside from the lounge area and onto the decked terrace which is a delightful spot to enjoy a morning cup of coffee or al fresco meal at the table and chairs, while taking in the stunning views beyond. Two steps lead from the decked terrace down to the enclosed gravelled courtyard which is another lovely area to relax in or fire up the gas BBQ. Furthermore, guests can also use Little Lookout, which is new for 2018. Little Lookout is accessed via the pretty silver birch glade next to the property and provides guests with private use of a cosy garden room which has been transformed into a secluded, tranquil sun trap area. From here you can enjoy seeing the local wildlife and panoramic views across the valley whilst relaxing on the adjacent decked area which has sun loungers, a table and chairs. Off-road parking is available for one car.

Lovely and quiet, position down narrow country lane, so very few cars. Well equipped and comfortable cottage.
