Boasting the status as a Grade II-listed property, this beautiful three-bedroom property lies within the stunning Coombe Keynes and is a prime example of rural cottage charm.

This typical chocolate box cottage dating from 1740 is located in the charming hamlet of Coombe Keynes, with a population of only 79 people. The village boasts a beautiful 13th-century church with stunning stained glass windows which is well worth a visit. Records show that the church previously had church bells, but during restoration these were taken out and are now kept at the County Museum in Dorchester (12 miles away), a nice day out if you don't mind travelling a little further afield.

The property boasts single-level accommodation which is ideal for family living and socialising. Through the hall entering into the sitting room, there are feature stone walls, warming wooden floors and a stunning beamed fireplace setting off the log burner perfectly. A Smart TV and music system add a touch of modern to the traditional. The kitchen/dining room has all modern appliances and a TV providing a hub for family gatherings. There is a family bathroom with bath and overhead shower, and there is an additional WC for convenience. The property has three large bedrooms, a bunk bedroom and two double bedrooms (one en-suite) with radio alarm clocks, TVs and iPod docks.

The front of this property is idyllic with a small grass verge and climbing roses, perfectly encapsulating the chocolate box idea of the country cottage. The rear garden has a patio area and a lawn dotted with flower beds, flowers, shrubbery and trees There is a BBQ area for outside dining and socialising.

homely barn in a peaceful location, all on one level, and an ideal base to visit many places of interest and beauty from.

The most comfortable cottage we have stayed in over the last 30 years of cottage holidays in the UK, a true home from home. The property's character and comfort make it an ideal holiday base for a very beautiful area.

This cottage or barn conversation was wonderful, set in a rural area which was so relaxing. As the star ratings above indicate everything about the property was perfect.

Reviewed by E A 16th August 2019

A sweet cottage in a lovely little village, but improvements could be made. We found the main bedroom had rather a damp feel and it smelt of dog! The main living areas were fine but the bathrooms were cramped.

A lovely spacious ( kitchen table seats 8 very comfortably - only 2 of us though ) and clean Barn conversion/cottage. Very well equipped and garden nicely closed off for our small dog to run around, couldn't get out. Found a very good walk for our dog, can walk for miles, left out of cottage and then right turn short distance down the road and pastRead more old post office (Purbeck Walk) Can walk to Lulworth Castle and beyond. Lovely bottle of wine and fresh flowers also biscuits and milk. Hide

The cottage was in a fabulous location and was immaculate when we arrived. The facilities were excellent and the cottage was warm and cosy. We were a little disappointed with the space available in the bathrooms, but thats just because we were navigating them with small children.
